On February 11, 2012 when singer Whitney Houston was breaking on through to the other side at one of my old haunts in Los Angeles, 3000 miles away in New York, history was also being made – but on a happier note.  All weekend at the Walter Reade Theatre, the Film Society at Lincoln Center has been paying tribute to one of the goddesses of the silver screen – Raquel Welch.  When Raquel was getting her start in the 1970s, she appeared on Dick Cavett’s popular TV talk show.  If you’ve ever seen her appearance (and it’s available on DVD – so seeing it is a must!), you saw the sparks fly between Dick Cavett and Raquel Welch.  All these years later, the pair reunited for an in-person interview that was conducted prior to a screening of “The Three Musketeers,” starring Ms. Welch.

My first thoughts on getting the chance to see history being made before my eyes was my hope that Dick Cavett and Raquel Welch would reminisce about Raquel’s first appearance on the Dick Cavett Show because in addition to Raquel’s appearance, another one of my goddesses was on the show that night – Janis Joplin!  As my incredible luck would have it (and don’t worry, I’ll be passing this luck on to you, my dear readers), the first thing they talked about was Janis!  From that point on, you could knock me over with a feather, but the hour long interview was just like being at a taping of Cavett’s legendary show as he interjected his witty jokes in between questions and answers and Raquel Welch was more than happy to open up to fielding questions from all aspects of her incredible career.

Raquel looked absolutely stunning as the sex siren is 71 years old!  She attributes her great body to her daily routine of Yoga and staying out of the sun.  She joked that it takes her 9 hours to get ready every day.  They also talked about the fact that Raquel has been voted the number two sexiest woman of film (with number 1 being Marilyn Monroe).  Raquel said she never got a chance to meet Marilyn and that her and Monroe were nothing alike – though they are often compared to each other.

As I mentioned before, a video will be coming soon of Dick Cavett and Raquel Welch talking about Janis Joplin, so stay tuned.  I am still in awe after seeing these two legends in this format right in front of my eyes!  Thanks Dick and Raquel for a night I will never forget!
