Touring in the '70s and '80s with her "stylist" Wayland Flowers, Madame was a sensation. With a regular run on Hollywood Squares, a recurring spot on Solid Gold, appearances on Laugh-In, and her own sitcom named Madame's Place, the plastic star seemed to be everywhere.
An outrageous old broad who drew inspiration from the glamour and sleazy vibe of Vegas in its heyday, Studio 54, and the red carpet scene, Madame wasn't afraid to push the boundary and live like some sort of ancient flapper queen. But as times have changed and people have moved away from coke-filled nightclubs to cynical online message boards, Madame has been left to collect dust.
Not ready to let the golden age of television and stardom depart without a fight, Madame is back! To aid in the effort, she's calling all of her old friends, past co-stars, co-hosts, co-workers, and especially her "frienemies" to help. A true golden girl, Madame is just as bright as ever, even if her face needs some work. Taking to Indiegogo, she has co-opted Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" to inform the poor, deprived youth who may not know any better about her glory days- and to apologize for helping launch Corey Feldman's career. Iggy may claim to be fancy, but Madame's the real star.
Planning a brand-new tour, Madame is asking for $50,000, which will be used to hire a new writer and director, fund the travel, food, and booking costs of the tour, provide her with "plastic surgery" to update her look, and purchase costumes and props. Watch (and contribute) below:
