Anonymous: I read in "Shock Value" that John Waters met Russ Meyer but I always wondered if he ever had a chat with Tura ? "Faster Pussycat" was such a strong influence on him & his movies. Thanks!
Yes. John and I met in San Francisco and we discussed that, and talked about doing a film together! He told me how much Divine worshipped the ground I walked on (Tura laughs.) Divine was something else!
Q: What's your favorite perfume?
Your close Facebook friend,
A. Luna Mystique by Prince Matchabelli. Which they no longer make. They no longer make it because some idiot women sued them because they said it didn't smell good on them! Well, I wonder why. When you stink, you stink, what can I tell you? It didn't smell good on them, but it smelled great on me. I can leave a room and everyone can smell me after I've left.

I'm curious if when she was an exotic dancer if she had a theme song or a favorite tune that she used in her show.
A. Yes! The first song was called "The Lure of Tura," and the second song was "Tura's Dream," (I wish I had my music with me) and the third song was "Go Tura!" The music was written by a bandleader of the Hudson Theater in Union City, NJ named Joe Lafferty - a nice Irish guy (laughing.) Joe wrote all the different songs that I danced to. When I first started out, I used to dance to "Midnight in Moscow," "Night Train," and the first song I danced to was ... what the hell was it called? ... oh, "Love is a Many Splendored Thing." (DL laughs here) and there was another one ... "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."

OMGod, Sugar Boxx looks FABULOUS! Tura, you are still one sexy tough-ass mama! Good luck with the premiere! (Makes me miss living in L.A.!)
A. It's gonna be fun! Thank you!
