Dame Edna - My Gorgeous Life
Dame Edna emerges from retirement to grant an audience to her Australian fans with her new show.
In a letter to her fans, Dame Edna apologised for upsetting them when she announced her retirement from public life, blaming her manager, “failed actor and attention seeker” Barry Humphries.
While every star had to make allowances for minor acts of embezzlement, she said, Humphries had his hand in the till up to his armpit. “My new team of advisors said I should close down all my companies, even my charitable foundation Friends of the Prostate, and re-start my career on a clean page,” Dame Edna said.
“That’s what I’m doing. That explains my so-called ‘retirement’ and withdrawal from public life. Now I’m reborn, fit as a fiddle, and rid of the leech who tormented me for so long. So, Possums, please do come and say hello to me. It would be lovely to see your faces again.”
