June's energy is like-
Y'all ever watch the Golden Girls? It's the show about four retired ladies living in Florida: Rose, Blanche, Dorothy & Dorothy's mother Sofia. Little known fact: in real life, the actress who played Dorothy's mother Sofia was actually younger than the other actresses. To successfully suspend this reality, the producers costumed her in a white wig, wrinkles, old lady glasses & asked her to walk slower & more gingerly than her costars. Like they say, you gotta dress for the job you want.
Golden Girls was on air from 1985 until 1989, & Estelle Getty (the actress who played Sofia) didn't have to deal with fame the same way her costars did, because she wasn't as recognizable outside of her costume. Folks might have thought she looked familiar, but they rarely put two & two together. When the show was over, she was able to audition for characters outside of the Golden Girls universe, since her disguise was protection against the career fatality that is typecasting.
This month, folks might be looking for us to play the role we've been playing, but the act is over, the show is cancelled, production called it a wrap. There won't be a sequel or a spin-off either. This means that those who confused our camouflage for real attributes will look right through us when we show up as ourselves. They'll say we're acting out of character, but we're only keeping it real.
But to the rare ones who can put their preconceived notions aside & embrace us as we are:
