That time Vicki Lawrence sent Rue McClanahan a stripper to cheer her up when she was very sick

Rue McClanahan wrote about this experience in her memoir – “My First Five Husbands…And the Ones Who Got Away” -When Rue was in “Mama’s Family” she got very sick and was hospitalized. In an effort to cheer her up, Vicki Lawrence , the star of “Mama’s Family,” sent Rue a stripper. Turns out it was the kid’s FIRST GIG – what a way to jump into a new career!

This photo is the only image in the world of that moment in time.

That's a fucking HOT stripper.

In my extensive experience, it's rare to find a stripper that hot.

R1 NYC in the 1980s has the best strippers. I wonder how many of them lived past the 1990s?

Really r4? I always felt the NYC strippers were so dirty looking and looked like drug addicts. Ironically some of the most attractive were in the Midwest. Chicago had a lot of good looking cornfed all American white beef like the guy in the pic. He’s definitely a Midwestern boy who probably moved to Los Angeles.

Incidentally, I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of Midwestern men when my brother, his girlfriend (now wife), and I took a cross-country road trip about a decade ago, when we were in our early twenties.

Initially, I was reluctant to go, because all I'd ever heard about Middle America was that it was flat, boring, and all the people were inbred and big as houses. No thanks!

But I had never before seen so many beautiful men! All-American types that used to populate the media. I felt like I was in an Abercrombie & Fitch ad. And being from the mountainous, coastal Northeast, I was enchanted by the flat, landlocked scenery. Go figure!

Needless to say, the trip ended up being much more enjoyable than anticipated, but it really is a different world over there. Perhaps less cynical and pessimistic than the East/West Coasts -- many smiley faces -- but a lot more religious and conservative.

Furthermore, the young men possessed a charming naivete that is missing from their East/West Coast counterparts.

R71 I never understood the whole “Midwestern people are all fat and ugly” attitude. Most of those men you saw in Abercrombie or Ralph Lauren or even Playgirl were from the Midwest or South. Very few were California or NY natives. Even many of the most handsome movie stars came out of the Midwest. Midwestern men are some of the hottest.

Almost All those hot dudes you see walking around NYC or LA? Yeah, most are from other states.
