Yvonne Craig, TV’s Batgirl is dead at 78

Love the kitten heels!
In the late 60’s, watching Batman on the TV, I always identified more with Batgirl and Robin more than with Batman (Dr Freud on line 1). I think it was the purple outfit with the kitten heels that got me. The one thing about her character as portrayed on the show was that her character was too “frilly” and not at all the cool sophisticated woman that was the Mary Tyler Moore archetype which would have suited the character better. I mean really… lace on her motorcycle and that ridiculous bowa?!? I didn’t care for that, one bit. 

“In the end, her mind still wanted to fight but her body had given up,” her family said in a statement. A trained dancer, she began her career at The Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and used those skills to perform her own stunts alongside Adam West’s Batman. Craig also played Martha, the green Orion Slave Girl who wanted to kill Captain Kirk, in the third season of Star Trek. And she starred in two movies opposite Elvis Presley – It Happened at the World’s Fair and Kissin’ Cousins. But it was her performance as librarian Barbara Gordon, who secretly moonlights as Batgirl, that defined her career. She joined the TV show in its third and final series in 1967, thwacking and kapow-ing Gotham’s bad guys alongside Batman and Robin. The show is still seen around the world today, something which came as a surprise to the actress in her later years.

Get rid of the lace and that awful bow on the tail!

Florida mom ditches kids at Waffle House to go drinking at a bar and never returns

From RawStory.com:

A Florida mother was arrested this week after police said that she left her three children at an Augusta Waffle House while she went drinking at a nearby bar. According to the Augusta Chronicle, 38-year-old Rhiannon Gentry’s children — ages 11, 12, and 12 — were found crying in the parking lot of a Waffle House in Richmond County on Monday night.
A waitress reportedly told police that Gentry had left the children there an hour and a half earlier, but she did not leave them with enough money to pay for their food. The waitress said that she observed the children crying on multiple occasions because their mother had not returned to check on them. According to an arrest report, a man saw the children trying to cross a busy road to get to Wild Wings Cafe, where they believed their mother was drinking. The witness said that he found Gentry drinking with two men at the bar.
Gentry later told police that she had only gone to Wild Wings to pay for four drinks that she had earlier in the evening. She also said that one of the children did not belong to her, but she said that she had permission to take the child to dinner.
Gentry was charged with deprivation of a minor.

Paty Navidad’s chocha taolla makes an appearance on live TV!

Patricia Navidad learned that anything can happen on live TV when it looked like her pad made a break for it and free fell from her dress. Bitch sang her maxi pad off, basically. The camera person noticed and made sure to zoom in and get a nice close-up shot of the pad lying on the floor, because that’s what everyone needed to see.
