TMZ flickers on mute as her five dogs howl. Sitting crisscross on her couch, she unzips a duffel bag stuffed with year-old stripper thongs. By the time she gets to the bottom of the bag, her couch is covered in ancient bedazzled panties. There are plenty of relics from her nights as a dancer, but nothing from her stint as a hot dog girl. In the early s, roads in St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park and Largo were peppered with hot dog carts staffed by women in T-backs — thong bikinis.
It was neat to see how each artist painted me in their own way. My mom noticed the check from the art school and asked me about it in front of the family. I told her the truth, they all just laughed and gave me a hard time about it but were not offended or mad or anything so it was cool. Since that time, I have been to two nudist resorts in CA.
