DDR DANCE PAD... DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION


                             *   


                     FANNIE FLAGG

BIRTH DATE: September 21, 1944, Birmingham, Alabama

BIRTH NAME: Patricia Neal 

NICKNAME: Patsy 

CLAIM TO FAME: As mentioned for me, I really only knew Fannie 
for her appearances on 'The Match Game', and when I asked 
most that's the first that came out. The only other popular 
answer was... 'wasn't she in Grease?'


FAMILY LIFE: Husband: Dick Sargent (this is not really a
fact, can't find any definitive info on it. There were 
rumors on this... both Dick and Fannie were/are gay so
could it have been a marriage to hide it?)

Former Girlfriend: Rita Mae Brown (novelist)


INFO: Fannie Flagg began writing and producing television 
specials at age nineteen and went on to distinguish herself 
as an actress and writer in television, films, and the theater.

SET OF TWO 5" FLAMELESS ON/OFF PILLAR CANDLES

Normal Price: $19.99 each
DEAL PRICE: $14.99 for a Set of Two Candles

It looks like a regular candle, it flickers like a regular 
candle, but it is so much easier and safer! 

No heat, no melted wax to clean up. This is perfect for use 
outside because the "flame" won't blow out, and perfect for 
inside events because there is no danger or mess. Use it alone 
or in your favorite holder or sconce. The light flickers exactly 
like a wick flame. 5" tall, 3" diameter. A neat idea for your 
kid's or teen's room where you might not want an open flame. Take 
it with you on your travels to make hotel rooms feel like home. 

This battery operated LED flickering pillar candle can be used 
anywhere you would use a regular pillar candle, and many places 
you wouldn't. To see a picture or order visit:

TRIVIA: Staple celebrity guest on many daytime television 
game shows back in the 70s, including "Liar's Club" and 
"Password", among others.

Holds an honorary doctorate from Franklin Pierce College in 
Rindge, New Hampshire, where her book "Fried Green Tomatoes" 
is part of the freshman curriculum.

She was born Patricia Neal, a name she could not professionally 
use, as there was already a well-known Oscar-winning actress 
named Patricia Neal.

Show business career began when she entered a Miss Alabama 
pageant and won a scholarship to the Pittsburgh Playhouse

Fannie is openly gay, and was, at one time, the partner of author 
Rita Mae Brown, who outed her. Despite her openness regarding her 
personal life, Flagg removed a substantial portion of the lesbian 
content in the book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe 
in order to make the film Fried Green Tomatoes more commercially 
viable.

At one time, Flagg was linked in the press (and in some reports, 
said to be married) to actor Dick Sargent. The two appeared as a 
couple on the 1970s game show Tattletales, which featured 
celebrities and their spouses, though at no time were they 
presented as a true couple. Host Bert Convy would introduce them 
as "Dick Sargent and his lady, Fannie Flagg." Sargent was himself 
gay and eventually came out prior to his death in 1994.


Suffers of Dyslexia

Her script for Fried Green Tomatoes was nominated for both the 
Academy Award and the Writers Guild of America Award and won the 
highly regarded Scripters Award. 

WHERE IS SHE NOW: Fannie is still writing away. Her last novel
was Can't Wait To Get To Heaven which was published in 2006.

She divides her time between homes in California and Alabama.

real locations that inspired her writings:
