Hi kids! Miss Arica has to take a minute and say Miss Dixie Carter will be missed. Dixie was a gay icon, best known for her role as Julia Sugarbaker on the hit sitcom “Designing Women.” She passed away last week at the age of 70. I loved her style, her finesse and her spirit. I would like to wish her family and loved ones my sincere condolences.

Hi kids! Miss Arica has to take a minute and say Miss Dixie Carter will be missed. Dixie was a gay icon, best known for her role as Julia Sugarbaker on the hit sitcom “Designing Women.” She passed away last week at the age of 70. I loved her style, her finesse and her spirit. I would like to wish her family and loved ones my sincere condolences.

Ok kids, this week it’s all about Miss Esme Russell. This star of stars is always a lady first. I especially have a special place in my heart for Esme and will always love and support her.

We sat down and went back to 1981 and let me tell you, kids, she knows here stuff. She is a former Miss Continental Florida FI (94-95). Miss Florida FI (1993-94), Miss Rene’s, Miss Tampa, Miss Tracks, Miss Suncoast, Miss Ft. Lauderdale, and Miss Miami Beach just to name a few of her over 70 titles.

Her favorite color is green and she loves shoes and gowns (ok, which queen doesn’t?). Did you know she won Miss Florida with the talent song “Another Sleepless Night” and has done the song “Dreams” for some of the best Halloween shows I have ever seen? I have followed her since I came on the scene back in 1992 and I tell you she was all that and a bag of chips and still is to this day. She has many loved ones in our GLBT community and she said to me, “People will always remember the way you make them feel.” I respect her as she is a pro, is all ways fresh and current and adapts to all things in 2010.

She wants the up and coming girls to know one thing: “It’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice.” And that is my dear friend Miss Esme Russell.

Much love to you, Miss Russell, and love to you, Central Florida!
