Was taken to dinner for my birthday to a cute little Austrian boite off the Ku-Damn by the young and very handsome Justin Patterson who is a relative to the very famous wealthy and powerful Mellon Family Dynasty of America. Despite popular belief I do not have a complete disdain for all rich people, just the icky ones. In my dealings over the years with the Mellon clan they are true blue. How does a black drag queen from the ghettos of Los Angeles get mixed up with the mega rich you ask. Well its a bit of a long story but it all started back in the 1970s when I received a scholarship to attend the prep school Choate Rosemary in Wallingford Connecticut. Through this scholarship I got to meet the late Paul Mellon and his wife Bunny Mellon who died last year at the age of 103. Mrs. Mellon loved black people and my insane eccentricities caught her eye many years ago and its through her that I met the sincere charmer that is Justin Patterson.
Back in the 1990s I had a flirty relationship with the late John-John Kennedy before he was married. He was somewhat of a dinge queen, and Bunny Mellon was best friends with his mother Jackie O. Anyway at dinner Justin and I got talking about falling out with friends, a subject I could build a mansion upon and I told him that any relationship in which one party feels even the slightest sense of diminishment from the other for me that relationship is not worth enduring. I also never regret my decisions to pull away from people with an ultimately corrosive aura. Those faithful readers of my blogina will know just who I am talking about as well as the person in questions who reads this blog regularly.
