Renay's rendition of Adam and Eve! Saucy!
Miz Liz at Miss Exotic World
Liz in her hey day! Grrrr!
I just found my new lady obsession: Liz Renay.
Born in the 1920s and dying in 2007, Renay (born Pearl Elizabeth Dobbins) was a burlesque star (she toured as a duo with her daughter Brenda until Brenda's suicide at the age of 39), a gangster's moll, a film star, an artist and author of several published books including My First 2,000 Men.
She was John Waters' muse and starred in his 1977 B flick Desperate Living. She dated notorious mobster Mickey Cohen and also claimed to have slept with Joe DiMaggio, Regis Philbin and Cary Grant. She was also a convicted felon, spending time in jail, and was married seven times.
And on top of all that she was an (awesomely tacky) artist!!
