Our Life on the D-List

The waiting is over. The show aired. Kathy was hysterical. I couldn’t be prouder of Sam. India was even more beautiful than I remembered (if that’s possible) and none of you saw the best/funniest stuff.

After Kathy kissed India, Sam was dared to make out with a straight girl, and I was dared to… well, let’s just say that the lesson learned was not to wear just a Speedo to a game of Truth or Dare, especially with Kathy Griffin and India Brooks. Naugty girls. Here are the photos… Continue reading ‘Our Life on the D-List’

Kathy Griffin & The Pages, “Busted in Bora Bora”

Sam and I will (possibly) be on Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List, this Thursday, July 24, on Bravo. The episode is called “Busted in Bora Bora.” I say (possibly) because we don’t know how the show was edited and if we’re in or out until the party on Thursday evening, where we’ll see it simulcast with the Eastern Standard Time broadcast (three hours earlier than the rest of L.A.)

As you will recall, we went to Bora Bora in the Spring, so Sam could interview Kathy for Passport Magazine. We couldn’t show you all of the pictures, for a couple of reasons. Continue reading ‘Kathy Griffin & The Pages, “Busted in Bora Bora”’

Photos from Bora Bora 1

Here are the first of the photos from Bora Bora. Thanks India! Our digital camera broke the day we arrived, so we don’t have many of our own shots. We’re relying on the kindness of our Bora Bora Buds. Special thanks to India, Sue, and Joy so far. More to follow. As you can see it was a great time. How great?  Find out exactly how great in our upcoming articles in Passport Magazine, who along with VIP Escapes and Standout Vacations, sponsored this Escape with the Stars.

The Third Sex of French Polynesia

rae_rae_tahiti_livre.jpgIn Bora Bora a few of the service staff were conspicuously tall women whom the trained eye revealed to be men, and who represent ‘the third sex’ in the islands.

According to Francois Bauer, for centuries, traditional families in French Polynesia raised their eldest son as a woman, or Mahu, believing him to have divine qualities, and the best traits of both sexes.

In the 1960’s, when the French began nuclear testing in Tahiti, there weren’t enough women to entertain all of the soldiers, so many of the local men became women. Now that’s what I call hospitality.

From Bora Bora to Reality

bronsamsplash.jpgThe last 36 hours on Bora Bora may have been the best, as far as we were concerned. Free of obligations to Kathy, the schedule, and the group – no matter how lovely they all were – we got to just be together and relax. Tuesday was the biggest little day of the trip. With nearly all of our group gone, the place was a lot quieter and a bit more boring, but we loved it.

Sam and I had breakfast and went snorkeling with our favorite girls, Sue and Joy, before we broke off for a snuggle and a nap in the room, and a late afternoon soak in the pool until almost 6pm, just in time for us to make our 6:30 water taxi to Vaitape (vay-TAH-pay). By the time we were departing, they had found the missing Canadian hiker, the Garfunkels had left the motu, and the resort hadn’t run out of food or electricity. Bliss.

Hiker Found, Lesbians Resting, Homeward Bound

The third act excitement came to a resolution today when we learned, rather un-dramatically, that the Canadian hiker, Collin Foster, has been found alive.

It’s been a great one-day extension, but truth be told, if we were here much longer, I’d be looking for a job to occupy me. One thing I’ve learned is that this body doesn’t like to stay at rest.

We spent the day snorkeling under the reception area where all of the incoming guests feed bread to the fish, hence, snorkeling there is like snorkeling in a tank at Sea World.

We’re glad to be headed home. Continue reading ‘Hiker Found, Lesbians Resting, Homeward Bound’
