After nearly 5 years and 5,000 posts, and on the happy news that President Obama has been reelected, this is the end of the road for, as I’m moving on to other creative endeavors.

A big thank you to all of my wonderful friends, fans, family and colleagues for making this so much fun. Y’all know who you are. I love you all.

Feel free to catch up on what you might have missed, before the site goes offline.

Camilla at the Races

by Chexy on November 6, 2012

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as seen at the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse today.

The royal milliners have outdone themselves, fashioning a massive hat for Camilla made from her own hair clippings, which are ideal for basket weaving. Add a giant bow and you’re ready for the horse… races.

Camilla looks pleased to be in Australia, or she’s just passed gas.

Camilla, Kangaroo

by Chexy on November 5, 2012

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, cradles a baby kangaroo and strikes a most loving expression while on a visit to Longreach, Australia.

Thankfully, there was no chance of her ruining her manicure. Or her hair. Or her dress.

Gabourey Sidibe: Werk!

by Chexy on November 5, 2012

Wearing a sensible wedge isn’t the norm for a supermodel, unless you’re Gabourey Sidibe, as seen at the Ebony Power 100 Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Friday night, who makes it work!

Wearing a sky blue shift (courtesy of United Air Lines) with a daring sleeve to expose her worked-out arms, a delicate silver chain for that slimming effect, and lusciously shimmering eyeshadow that accentuates her cheekbones, she’s a model of perfection!

Which reminds me… have you secured your holiday ham?

Camilla is Hot

by Chexy on November 5, 2012

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was greeted on Sunday in Papua by a dancer in traditional attire.

The sagging breasts, painted hair and unfortunate skirt are the usual for Camilla.

Camilla in New Guinea

by Chexy on November 5, 2012

You know how your Chexy loves to bring you a ray of sunshine, but today it’s this photo of Camilla.

Her Gorgeousness was in Papua, New Guinea… and I must say, she puts the pap in Papua.

This is how she looked at a reception for veterans, her hair slightly wilted from the heat, her face aglow with warmth, and an expression so vivid you can almost smell gin on her breath.

Friday Face: k.d. Lang

by Chexy on November 2, 2012

Miss k.d. Lang was born on this day in 1961, making the birthday girl today’s Friday Face. A Buddhist, vegan, animal rights activist and Grammy-winning singer, k.d. is also a gay rights activist.

With one of the most stunning voices to ever spring from the Canadian wilderness, k.d. soared to fame after Roy Orbison chose her for a duet of his hit, “Crying,” for which they both won Grammys in 1989.

Here she is singing one of her hits with pure joy…

With Dame Edna… hilarity ensued. (It takes a moment for this to begin. Best line at 4:55.)

It wouldn’t be fair not to include their duet!

One of the most peculiar and compelling renditions of a Cole Porter song…to benefit AIDS research.

Miss Lang now lives in godforsaken Portland… the first and last time I visited there, it was closed.

For her beauty, courage, and for her birthday, k.d. Lang is today’s Friday Face.
