Wow, where has time went? This coming Monday on May 28th would have been Edith Massey’s 94th birthday.
Yes the one and only Eddie “The Egg Lady” of the John Water’s clan would have been 94 years old. This amazing and truly unique actress was born in San Francisco, CA in 1918. She was raised in an orphanage and was sent out to be a maid at the age of 15.
She was discovered working as a barmaid in 1970 and the rest is history. How could we forget her talents and amazing lines in movies like: Multiple Maniacs, as Edie The Egg Lady in Pink Flamingo’s, Queen Carlotta in Desperate Living, and the lovable Cuddles in Polyester.
I just wonder how she never won a Golden Globe or Oscar for any of her performances. We miss & love you Edith!
