Movie beauty Raquel Welch has her suspicions that Mae West was a drag queen after getting up close and personal to the silver-screen icon during one of West’s final films, “Myra Breckinridge.”
“When I went over to say hello to her (one day) I said, ‘Hi, it’s Raquel, remember?’ She sort of extended her hand to me and I went to kiss the ring and one false fingernail painted silver fell to the floor. I looked at the hand and I thought, ‘Oh, I’m getting a vibe.’ I really think she’s a man!
Meow.... It looks like Raquel learned how to pose from Mae.
“At this point in her life all bets are off and you’re not going to be able to doll it up that much. I would say it’s pretty accurate that she resembled a dock worker in drag.”
I really doubt it. Mae West's life is too well documented. She was quite a sensation in her day, having been arrested on morals charges for one of the plays which she wrote, produced, and starred in. She was sentenced to 10 days and served 8 (2 off for good behavior). She had dinner with the warden and his wife...
But who really knows? Maybe a coroner or funeral worker somewhere.
