Luenell learns to pole dance
On a beautiful evening down in Los Angeles, California, I was very lucky to be at BeSpun for Pole Show LA. Sitting behind me was someone I recognized. I couldn't place it but I knew she was SOMEONE. The very short blonde hair... I racked my brain. Then it hit me...FRENCHIE DAVIS! I don't watch a lot of TV but I remembered her vaguely from American Idol years and years ago and heard she was on The Voice. I was certain that Frenchie Davis was sitting behind me at Pole Show LA.
Not unlike asking a woman if she is pregnant when she's just chubby (I've always said, unless you see a baby hanging OUT or her body, never ask), don't tell a celebrity who they are...unless you know with 100% certainty.
I was schooled. Quickly. And on Twitter.
The lovely lady sitting behind me was Luenell, the hooker with a heart of gold from the movie, Borat. In my defense, I haven't seen Borat since it came out six years ago! Ahhh but there is no excuse and I feel very lucky that Luenell has tolerated me ever since. I found out she learned how to pole dance for the upcoming movie, That's My Boy with Adam Sandler, so I wanted to include her in my blog. Since she travels a lot for movies and her comedy tours, typing her answers out for me wasn't an option. We tried a Skype session but the audio somehow wasn't recorded. Then Luenell came to town on tour, so I loaded up Rita and some camera equipment and off we went!
Here is the video interview with the hilarious and amazing LUENELL:
Here are some photos (including one of Frenchie Davis...so you too can make fun of me for being an idiot):
