They don't make them like Alice Ghostly and Kaye Ballard anymore. If you are unfamiliar with their (gay, snarky, hilarious) magic, treat yourself to these glorious 90 seconds.

This song is being sung, whistled and whimpered through bitter tears across the United Kingdom today. Let's join in! Everybody now... "oh why would a fellow want a girl like her, a girl who's merely lovely..."

You are SUCH an old queen for posting this... but I ? Alice Ghostly, they don't them like her anymore.

My post was supposed to say "I heart Alice Ghostly" but Bilerico evidently didn't want my heart >sob

We'll take your love any time! (You have to use the social hexcode to get it to show up. We ♥ Gina! See?

I'm guilty as charged, of being an old queen that is (49). Then again, I have a much older queen as a brother, and these funny diversions tend to get passed down. He also introduced me to the likes of "Gypsy" and Quentin Crisp, for example.

I loved Alice on Bewitched and, of course, (this is for your inner-old queen) she was in "New Faces of 1952" which also featured Mel Brooks, Paul Lynde and Eartha Kitt! (is that a great cast or what?)

Don't take back my gay card, but which one is which?

You sad, sad man. Alice is on the left (you may remember her as Esmeralda on Bewitched (she's the female Paul Lynde). No? How about from Designing Women?

Kaye, right, is best remembered from the series The Mothers in Law, and was famously lesbian.

OMG, this one is a keeper.

From the original b'cast of Rogers & Hammerstein's "Cinderella" on CBS (live) in 1957.


My great-grandmother told me all about it.
