Ileanna and the Rubia

29 Sep

Hi welcome to Funny Blonde. Yes, blondes can be funny — can you process that? (play on words, my hair is currently overprocessed). I’m Marié Lake, comedic actress, burlesque singer, and filmmaker. Follow this blog as I face the indignities of being a woman in the world of comedy, showbiz in general, and life in Brentwood when you are not a soccer mom and not rich. I was married to an attorney, those were 4 very long months. Now I am trying to stop dating actor/musicians who are one step away from living in their vans.

So, if you followed me you know I’ve done chiropractic exams as a day gig. See “spinal bumps.”(Who knew I had medical skills?)

It was there that I actually ran into my former maid, who is a screenwriter now. So I had to give her a spinal exam, because I am so nurturing and because it was such good comedy, and also because she might have connections in show business.

It was after that that we talked about my future day job prospects. See I thought she might make a good mentor. Check it out below.

Before the sudden proposal


Hi welcome to Funny Blonde. Yes, blondes can be funny — can you process that? (play on words, my hair is currently overprocessed). I’m Marié Lake, comedic actress, burlesque singer, and filmmaker. Follow this blog as I face the indignities of being a woman in the world of comedy, showbiz in general, and life in Brentwood when you are not a soccer mom and not rich. I was married to an attorney, those were 4 very long months. Now I am trying to stop dating actor/musicians who are one step away from living in their vans.

O.K. so I know it’s wrong, but once the spokesmodeling gigs weren’t happening and I got tired of dating this musician who bought a dirt bike instead of a Christmas present for me, so I went to this Beverly Hills matchmaker (more on her later).

She told me this guy would be different. She also told me to stop wearing my hair big because only gay men like that.

What happened inspired the first of of my “Arm Candy” dating stories. You know, those nights when you feel like the accessory to someone’s dream. It’s always a mistake to seek security. Something my yoga instructor said I think — but he’s very chatty.
