No. 4: Princess Kelly

Princess Kelly Brandon. A pseudo-celebrity of St. Petersburg. Born in Puerto Rico and lived in New York, she found her way to Florida. She can be seen at up and down Central Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets South wearing a white wig with a 1950s bob and clothing and fake jewelry that resembles the 1920s flapper. She wears a large red flower on the right side of her head.
She told many, many stories. Some of her three children, mostly of her religious views. There were also some parts of the conversation that led to her times in jail and recently attempted suicides. Princess Kelly even said she is looking to get another bottle of prescription pills to attempt it again. She said she and Madonna are alike in two ways, their age, both turning 50, and their ability to be full of life at an age that many see problems and insecurities.

You certainly captured her. I love the last photo. It's got a real sense of offbeat glamor.

I'd love to see the pics of Dominic and I reacting to her stories.

I still can't tie that bow around the conversation. I think it's going to take some time to figure out what I think about it all.

50-year-old Tracy, my ass. A fine example of dishonest, Fox News-style reporting. ;)
