Almost Cher

I bought Jessica Zafra's TWISTED 6 after many years of not reading her. Jessica gave me her autograph once, back when I was in high school (we share the same alma matter, and she came to visit during one of the homecomings). I remember freezing at the sight of her. It was probably the only moment in my life where I felt completely, utterly starstruck.

This was what she wrote:

Dear (Mussolini),

May you achieve world domination.

It was a very happy day. It was the day I decided to be fascist.

Jessica Zafra to me is like Cher to gay men. She is not a human being – she's a life force.

i bumped into her, imee, i mean, years ago in an old church in batangas. literally bumped into her in the crowded passageway. i stared. and i said to myself, this is the woman so much media hype but nothing much interesting about her physically . not even an air of "i'm a marcos".

LOL! all this talk about marcos (imee or imelda) is stealing away the thunder from cher and zafra.

come to think of it, where is jessica now? the last thing i remember about her is she co-hosted a talk show on Studio 23.

illyria> but i TALKED to zafra. it was like talking to the dalai lama, except she was in black.

bismuth> yeah, she seems simple and humble. she was wearing chanel loafers when i saw her...and carrying a goyard...probably the only signs of her marcos-ness.

barry> she has a magazine (called "pulp" i think) and still writes books.
