Mae West: Kenny Kingston

It will definitely get attention when you say you learned your craft from MAE WEST and that's what Kenny Kingston claimed.  Ten years ago, this interview appeared.
• • "Inner View with Kenny Kingston: On Mae West and Being Psychic" • •
• • Many Hands: How to be a psychic is that what you learned from Mae West?
• • Kenny Kingston:  Well, nobody really teaches you this. When I was three or four my grandmother, Catherine Walsh Clarke, taught me tea leaf reading. Then my mother, Kaye, taught me psychometry. Then when I was 7 or 8 Mae West was a close friend of my mother's and she practiced clairaudience, which is listening to the sound of the voice and picking up the vibrations. Did you know that she wrote all of her plays while in a trance?
• • MH: No kidding?
• • KK: She was a multi-millionairess with property that she bought when she was in trance. She would just listen to that little tiny voice inside.  ...
• • On Wednesday, 9 July 2014, The New York Times reported that "Kenny Kingston, 'Psychic to the Stars,' Dies at 87." The Times noted that "he was coached in spiritualism by Mae West, a family friend." Kenny Kingston was born on 15 February 1927, in Buffalo, N.Y. May he rest in peace.
• • On Thursday, 15 July 1937 • •
• • "Husband Frank Awed to Silence by Mae's Words" • • 
• • On Thursday, 15 July 1937, the Daily Illini printed this item: Frank Wallace, the original Mae West fan, came to town tonight, seemingly awed to super-silence by the pie curve queen's acknowledgement that he was her husband, and vague about what he was going to do about it .    . . .
• • "Mae West," sighed Frank Wallace. "There's only been one love in my life — — that' s her."
• • On Monday, 15 July 1974 • •
• • Edward Field's poem “Mae West” was published on page 30 in The New Yorker's issue dated for the week of 15 July 1974.
• • Save the Date: Wednesday, August 13th • •
• • Wednesday, 13 August 2014 will be the next Mae West Tribute in Manhattan and the event will start at 6:30 pm at 425 Sixth Avenue. The theme will be: "Mae West in Bohemia — — Gin, Sin, Censorship, and Eugene O'Neill."

• • By the Numbers • • 
• • The Mae West Blog was started ten years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2957th blog post. Unlike many blogs, which draw upon reprinted content from a newspaper or a magazine and/ or summaries, links, or photos, the mainstay of this blog is its fresh material focused on the life and career of Mae West, herself an American original.
