Christmas in July

Rehearsals are going well for the show, dolls! I've decided to add a Christmas number. Christmas in July!!? Call me sentimental, but I love XMas and thought a cute "We Need a Little Christmas" from Mame would be a great new opening number. Write and let me know your thoughts!

Dona's Rehearsing...

Dolls, I'm adding a new character to the show - Sister Rona! I'm putting her on roller skates and she's going to sing. I can't title the segment The Singing Nun, it's been done, so what about Sister Rona's Rollers ...Roll ing, roll ing, roll ing... Oh did I mention she's going to sing "Proud Mary"? Oh, she's also an adult therapist and doles out tidbits of advice like "Be kind! Get in the habit!" I know...perf!  Get in the Habit with Sister Rona!

Dona's Mostly Good Reviews from Vegas

Here's the best and the worst, dolls, lest anyone accuse me of being a liar!

"Diva Dona really knows how to deliver a song."C'Mon a My House" had George Clooney squirming in his seat and several men hurling underwear on stage. A new age Mae West, Dona is the toast of the Strip! She's a sizzler!"    (That's the Vegas Strip, dollcakes!)
- Jay Untervar, Desert Breeze

"Diva Dona is truly an artiste. Whether via song or spoken word this doll sells it to the WORLD."
-Pedro Clements, Valley Telegram

"Mwah to Diva Dona! She's the hottest thing to come to the desert since Ann-Margret. Sexy, fun and full of the demon gods! What a show! She had me rolling in the aisles and peeing at the same time!
-Brianna Styles, Audience World

"What a glorious addition to the Bally's Wall of Fame. Diva Dona has made it! She is truly a star! No, a Godessa!
-Diego Barcelona, River News

......OK, and the worst one! Never say Dona is vain:

"How much did Diva Dona pay Bally's to do her gig?  She can't sing and she can't act! This sacrilegious set should stay where it belongs. Pardon my French, but let it stink up the crapper!"
-DD Pilato, Vegas On Stage

(on opening night backstage, this charcoal sketch artist really immortalized MOI, YO... ME!)

Dona Auditions Her Boys

Do you think this hunky dude fits my mold? Yeaahh!!! Screw the chorus line! He's next in line to be my BODYGUARD!
