Alter Ego January 8, 2011

SO MUCH FUN SATURDAY – (the greatest day of the week!)

Isn’t this just too cool? I  had never heard of ALTER EGO pictures. But I have a good friend who is a professional photographer extraordinaire,  who explained them to me. He said that the TV program, Real Housewives of Atlanta did an episode on this. I found their pics and thought  you’d like to see them as well!

He said he could take my pic in this fashion.

PICTURE THIS: Bethsheba in a cute little apron serving appetizers to my alter ego Bethsheba. She would be in a fur coat with hair in an updo and she’d would be taking a hors ‘oeuvre from the silver platter.

What do you think? Pretty damn cool I’d say! If you’d like Byron (he’s really good) to take your pic too, here is his website: http://byrongravesphotography.com/?load=flash


Last night on Episode 8 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies revealed their alter ego photos by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Derek Blanks came up with the idea to capture celebrities with their alter egos a few years ago and over time has shot celebrities including Monica, Tisha Campbell Martin, Eva Marcille, Teyana Taylor, Teairra Mari, Akon, Kim Porter, Lala Vazquez and more.

For the Real Housewives of Atlanta alter ego pictorial, Derek captured Sheree as a robber and a victim, Lisa Wu-Hartwell as a young good girl getting bullied by a bad girl, and Kim Zolciak as a stedford wife and mistress (how fitting). Nene Leakes revisited her past as a stripper being watched by a housewife and Kandi re-enacted a drunk driver hitting a pedastrian. In March, her boyfriend AJ’s son, his nephew and a few of her cousins were involved in a head on collison that left AJ’s nephew in intensive care for over a month so Kandi really wanted to use her shoot to send a statement about drunk driving.

I own a Rosie the Riveter sweatshirt and love the image. I just happened to hear that the woman that was the inspiration for the photo, died. In honor of all the hard working babes in this country, our scarf is off to you Geraldine!

Geraldine Doyle said a photo of her as a teenager was the inspiration for the World War II “We Can Do It!” poster. She died in Lansing at age 86.
