Hello everyone! If you weren’t updated via social media then I have great news! I have my FIRST SURGERY for my knee scheduled for June 7th and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!!! The crazy part is that I literally had to get married to even get insurance :/ yep that’s living in America.
I’ve been going through some rough times, but I finally feel like a positive outcome is around the corner. I’m also moving out of my current living situation and hopefully into a better one at the end of May. I’m literally starting over and while it’s not the beeeeest time for this to be happening it is what it is.
I’m moving at the end of May, then flying to Burlesque Hall of Fame the next day, and the day after I return to Chicago I will have surgery. After that I will need to take a month off of performing and working which is what I’m most freaked out about. If you know me then you know I’m a workaholic but I HAVE to give myself this time to heal properly. I have been going non-stop (with this injury!) for almost 8 months and once the scar tissue is removed is when I will know the extent of my torn ACL and MCL. Once it’s healed I may possibly need another surgery to repair the ACL.
I’m working a day job VERY part-time and am hustling as much as I can to have money to move AND co-pay for surgery AND to live while I’m not working. So if you’re feeling like sending me an early Birthday present I’m bring back my YouCaring fundraiser for a Knee Surgery Cushion!
Thank you to everyone who has wheeled me around, carried my luggage, given me a stage, allowed me to emcee, helped me get stuff for my new apartment, listened to me complain, venmo’d or paypal’d. I appreciate it so much and can’t wait for this to be over! If you’re interested in helping other ways you can:

Scandal sweeps Uptown Underground this July with a shocking twist on a classic fateful ballet.
The ugly death of a lovely girl.
But who’s to blame for our dear departed –
Drowned in shame and broken-hearted?
A shocking and all too soon farewell,
An unfair fate for the fair Giselle.”

Happy New Year, yall!!! This year is starting off with a lot of fabulous announcements and endeavors! I’m excited to take my career to new places and harness my passion and creativity in new ways. I took a bit of a break in 2013 and many of you know how hard it is for me to slow down and breath. 2014 will be even be even bigger and better! Thank you for all of your support!
Thank you all SO MUCH for your votes, your support, and encouragement! I’m honored to be included on this list for the 4th year in a row. To be honest with you, the first year I made the Top 50 in 2010 I had only been performing for a little over a year and I wasn’t sure if I deserved such recognition. After almost 5 years in the burlesque scene I still have *so much* to learn and so far to go. I’m looking forward to another year of hard work and who knows where this crazy life will take me next! Again, thank you. From the bottom of my little heart-shaped booty. xo
I’m beyond thrilled to return to the Windy City Burlesque Festival as a headliner this year! This was my very first festival in 2010 and Chicago is where I cut my chops and made my name. I’m excited to play with my Vaudezilla family and burlesquers from all over the world! Applications are open!
I’ve heard nothing but great things about the Southern Fried Burlesque Festival and am looking forward to my first time attending! I’ll be competing in the Saturday night pageant and I’m sure it’ll be nothing short of a fierce extravaganza!!
