Dewberry does the Convention

In case you havn't heard, realtiy tv is getting it's own convention, and wild horses couldn't keep me out of Nashville, Tenneesse this June. You would have thought that someone would have told me they were going to have this show, but I happened to see it online while looking for....well, I don't remember what.....but I found it. I can't wait to be there and meet all of the other contestants. I have posted a link for the website, so visit it and try and come to be with us. Nashville is a great town and it can only be fun for all. Maybe we can all invade the Wild Horse Saloon and someone can teach me how to line dance. Hmm...I wonder if cowboys like Dewberries.....I guess we'll just have to wait and find out.. :-) I'll see you all soon!!! Love always....Dewey

Dewberry Learns about the Vagina's

Wait! Before you get up to leave, let me explain. What I did was go and see the Vagina Monologues.....but I couldn't resist jerking your chain just a little.

The Vagina Monolugues, for those of you who have never see it, is a kind of play that discusses the female sex organ. It was written by Eve Ensler, who interviewed many women and turned their stories into what is now the Monologues. They are striking in their horror, filled with humor and freightening in their honesty. I think that it is impossible for anyone to leave the show without a great sense of change, of enlightenment.

I was lucky enough to know the producer of this years show and one of the performers. Leah Smith and Carrie Vogler were both co-workers of mine from the Flying Biscuit in Atlanta. Leah, produced and Carrie was the "Reclaining Cunt" that made everyone in the audience roar with laughter. Carrie was a vision with a pink and blond mohawk and a pair of pink boots that made my heart flutter. But all of the ladies in the show were great and the evening was memorable.

My date for the evening was Ann Myers, the girl with me in the pic. We met at her house before hand and I personally love her dog Pierre. I think that we both felt the same way about the Monologues. They were funny, smart, shocking, and brilliantly played. And while it is true that parts of it were over done and the acoustics at the Rialto could have been better, I don't know when I have seen anything on stage that was as powerful as the Vagina Monologues.

On a side note, I happened to run into my old boss, Anothny Corvelli, from the Flying Biscuit. He has recently opened a restaurant in the Marietta Square called The Three Bears Cafe. His Chef is none other than Tiffany Moon, who I think is one of the most adorable chefs I have ever met. I'm going there next week for lunch, with Ann in tow and will give ya'll a review soon after.

Love always and peace to all Vagina's


ps..Carrie, where did you get those boots.?..

Welcome to my life

Not so long ago, if you would have tried to tell me that I was going to be on television, I would have laughed and walked away. These things don't happen to slightly off centered, overweight and not so attractive (by television standards, anyway) boys from the deep South. These things happen to guys with tight muscles or starry eyed little twink boys with great hair, but not to me. Or so I thought.

Enter the casting crew for a little show called Hell's Kitchen. They waltzed into the Flying Biscuit Cafe in Atlanta and all hell broke loose. My boss, Delia Champion, told us that they were coming to film (or something like that) and that we should all be there. I was supposed to be in school that day, but Delia made sure I was there. She was convinced that I was what they were looking for before they knew what they wanted.

The rest is a matter of behind the scenes gossip (best saved for bits and pieces) and a lot of blind luck. I appeared on the Fox television reality show Hell's Kitchen, and nothing has been the same since.

This blog represents my desire to reach out to the world and to allow you to reach back to me. I will be keeping the journal updated with important things in my life and hope that you can share your lives with me. It will also be a way for me to keep everyone in the loop about projects that I am working on, whenever they come up.

I hope to hear from you soon, and will be adding a few upcoming events to the blog very soon!!

Love always
