Greetings and Salutations.
What to write about this week has been quite the conundrum. Corey Haim’s death, the Oscars Horror tribute, that beast of a Twilight fan on YouTube who looks like she swallowed Shrek? No I think they have all been sufficiently covered. Instead I thought I would discuss one of my favourite horror diva’s from my favourite horror TV series Twin Peaks the devastating Miss Audrey Horne.
Audrey Horne was played by Sherilyn Fenn, who of the Twin Peaks ladies was the one with fabulous curves and didn’t go on to be famous for her anorexic frame ( Lara Flynn Boyle anyone?). Audrey is the embodiment of the wicked little rich girl with a secret heart of gold. The vixen virgin, constantly looking for her father’s approval, yet loathing him at the same time. She falls for the dapper Agent Cooper (who didn’t!) and proceeds to assist him investigate the murder of Laura Palmer.
Audrey’s commitment to assisting Agent Copper removes some of her bad girl image as she puts her safety on the line to infiltrate an underground brothel One Eyed Jack’s, becoming a lady of the night for a spell. This gives us an insight into her love for Agent Cooper, her ability to steam up the screen but also into her innocence.
Audrey was a style icon to young ladies during this time (well to me anyway!), the tartan skirts, tight sweaters and blouses were a must for any aspiring Twin Peaks Diva!

Without a doubt, the greatest television show EVER! I just found Laura Palmer’s Diary at the thrift shop for fifty cents!
