Bad News

Dear Constant Reader,

Have you ever had one of those moments where, in a heartbeat, everything changes?

Saturday night, I returned to Babydoll Manor late and full of good cheer. Billie von Bon Bon, former Babydoll songbird, was back in town for her bachelorette party. I’ve missed her terribly since she moved to San Francisco and it was so good to see her, especially on such a festive occasion.

One last check of my mail before bed, I thought. And that’s when I read the message I wish had never been sent.

Devora Darling was in an awful accident. She’s in the hospital with a broken arm, broken hip, and broken jaw. Scratch wrote up more details here, if you care for such things.

Scratch & I visited her and it was heartbreaking to see our usually cheerful D.D. so miserable. She tried to keep her outlook sunny, like she always does, but it was obvious she’s in a lot of pain, physically and emotionally. The Wrathskellar opens in a month and she’s devastated that she won’t be able to dance. She originated the role of The Lost Girl, created the iconic “Creepy Doll” act, and has a new danse Apache with Evie that’s stunning. I can’t imagine the show without her.

All the Babydolls have pulled together to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. The show will go on and Devora will be involved somehow, but right now we’re holding emergency auditions for a new Lost Girl. I’ll keep you posted.
