MargOH! Immortalized


Hey Kids,

I have had so may wonderful things happen in my life, my marriage to Rodney, my being in over 1,700 films, taking over for Liza when she's on a bender, drinking Sake Hops in Hawaii... So many things.

This however is my most privileged moment.

MargOH! has been forever smacked on canvas and I never looked more gorgeous. You can almost smell my olive breath from my 7th dirty martini of the day. Not to mention that I am immortalized with my favorite performer and friend Nellie McKay.

I would love to thank Boosey Soho for doing this painting, It takes my breath way. I am truly honored.

She is a magician of the paint brush and is just wonderful to have done this!!

Boosey took her inspiration from my poem which I will paste in so the two can be put together.

I love ya Boosey and Cheers to you!!!


MargOH! and Nellie


Those two girls what a pair
In step walking side by side
Talking in a carefree tune
Thoughts dancing, smiling wide
People staring but they won't hide
Friends til the end
In step walking side by side

MargOH is a big boned gal
Most everyone looks twice
Covering up with L'Oreal
Sophisticated glamour is always nice
Working on an angle, independent and free
Stop staring; she's who she wants to be

Nellie is a young pioneer, ambitious, no fear
She has a vintage style and talent that's rare
She's no pageant gone bad
Her music makes you imagine a world both happy and sad
She sings for human and animal rights
Optimistic we'll win the fight
Standing tall, independent and free
Stop Staring; she's who she wants to be


MargOH and Nellie don't fit the mold
Two works of art bigger than life to behold
Don't ask don't tell
They're not ready to say
What business is it of yours anyway?
These two friends til the end
Working on an angle, independent and free
Stop staring; they're who they want to be


It's not a matter of sexual orientation
Small-minded people currently rule this nation
Just so that you're in the know
MargOH and Nellie are just friends on the go
Two friends til the end
Working on an angle, independent and free
Stop staring; they're who they want to be
They're who they want to be
