Remember Madame? (from Wayland Flowers and Madame.) She was a tranny looking and acting puppet who appeared on Solid Gold, Hollywood Squares and had a short lived TV show, Madames Place. We posted about Joan Rivers’ growing similarity to Madame. But when fourfour mentioned the Dolly Parton pics looked like Madame something clicked… overdone facework turns you into a puppet-head!… we’re calling it Madamism!!
Joan, Dolly and Cher just scrap the surface (no pun intended), it’s quite widespread: Meg Ryan, Priscilla Presley, Melanie Griffith, Patrick Swayze, Burt Reynolds, Sharon Osbourne, Mickey Rourke and many more are showing signs of Madamism, yikes!
Footnote: Googling Wayland and Madame we came across BlairMag’s fabulous puppet piece filled with photos and juicy tidbits, including this: “Wayland Flowers suffered a tragic demise and was buried with his beloved Madame”!
