  7. More likey she hocked the diamonds and is claiming the theft for inurance money. When was the last time she worked? SS checks don't pay that much

  8. You are soooo wrong Jimmyboyo, she has never stopped working. She's still touring with a one woman show. She is amazing. She's always had a great sense of humor about herself and she's always been a good friend to gay people. I think she's still fabulous.
