Remembering Royce Reed



Most people have probably never heard of Royce Reed, who died on Tuesday, but I think she is definitely deserving of a DEEP DISH post because of her old-fashioned elegance and appreciation of Engelbert Humperdinck's music. In 2007, Royce began appearing in some funny/sad/bizarre Grey Gardens-like videos with her friend, Marilyn Hoggatt, who passed away last September. The ladies first met in 1983 and began living in a downtown Los Angeles hotel in 1988.
