Today is Brenda Dickson’s birthday, which means we have an excuse to post one of our favorite random videos! Brenda Dickson played villainess Jill Abbott on “The Young and the Restless” in the ’70s and ’80s. On screen, she stole the heart of a rich married man and then slept with her stepson, but there’s even more daytime drama in her cult classic “Welcome to My Home” video, in which she’s just “playing herself.” In the short video, the former Miss California, who is credited as writer, director, and executive producer, said she was motivated to make the piece by her fans who have written her and asked, “How do you look better today than you did 11 and a half years ago?” And girlfriend looks craaaaaazy good for 1987! Her closet is covered in beading, she has a jumbo portrait of herself over her sofa, an entire rack of red high heel boots, and every outfit shows off her cleavage. Sure, when Ms. Dickson describes her accessories as “diamonds,” she means rhinestones, but there are some real gems! Our favorite line is when she says, “Leather is always great, I wear a lot of it.” And how!
If you thought soap star Brenda Dickson was crazy, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Angela Lansbury, best known as your grandmother’s favorite TV heroine in Murder She Wrote, managed to make an egomaniacal, er, informative video about her lifestyle. It’s got a creamsicle colored jumpsuit, a touchy-feely tub scene, a mini-massage with a lot of leg, and an open dialogue about sex after “the change”. Let’s just say, you will never watch Bedknobs and Broomsticks the same was again. Like the other posts on the video rarities site EverythingIsTerrible.blogspot.com, this vintage clip is so creepy it’s awesome.

From washinâ€™ up to makeup, every lady takes her time in the bathroom. And while we at The Frisky think Brenda Dicksonâ€™s two-hour per day regimen seems crazy, a woman in Kansas has topped the soap opera diva with two years! Although she wasnâ€™t exactly trying to be glamorous with her sweatpants around her knees and all her meals being brought to her, the 35-year-old simply refused to leave her boyfriendâ€™s bathroom. Eventually, her skin grew around the toilet seat and it took a crowbar to set her free. “She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body,” Ness County Sheriff, Brian Whipple, said. “It is hard to imagine. … I still have a hard time imagining it myself.” While we try to block that mental picture out of our heads, the woman is finally receiving medical treatment. She had initially made a stink when her boyfriend decided to call for help, but weâ€™re sure he did the right thing for his #1 who was treating herself like #2. [Earthlink] Keep reading »
