Hey there multicultural! I checked out your hub and am so glad I did! That was an exceptional story and a great read for inspiration to all us hubbers! Hard to picture you as Desiree though..hmmmmm I think I like your real name better!
Tara O'Hanlon! It's our first pet name and my mothers maiden name in it's original form. My great grandparents came to the UK from Ireland and dropped the O' from their name to fit in better at the time. But I like the O' before it! Tara O'Hanlon has a kind of ring to it don't you think!
Though never a celebrity, I had a stage name. In radio back in the 60's, the station that I worked for had three featured disc jockeys and they were required to use company names. When I arrived for my first shift I was told they already had a Tom, and a Dick, so I would be Harry. The last names assigned to us were, Brown, Bell, and Scott.
One of the earlier Harrys had come from WMEX in Boston, which was one of the nation's top Rock n Roll stations in the 1960s. He was required to use the name 'Fenway'. The Fenway is a section of Boston, known mostly as the site of the Red Sox field, Fenway Park. Over the history of the station there were more than 20 guys who used the name Fenway.
The station was a 'T-N-T' outlet...meaning the disc jockey would give the time after playing one record and then the temperature after the next. My pal played a Jerry Lee Lewis 45, then said, "It's 9:15 in Boston and the temperature is 76 degrees." He was fired right after his shift. When he asked why he was being let go, the owner of the station said, "because you gave the time and the temperature together."
I think Betty Smiles has a nice ring to it. But do you think people would make fun of it? They would change it at every opportunity with a new verb...Betty Talks, Betty Walks...you know how goofy the media is sometimes! Thanks for answering Betty!
Ha ha ha ! I love this question. I will never be a celebrity material nor would I want to be one. But just for laughs - I would pick ANNIE HALL the movie mainly because of its quirky comedy and the wardrobe of Diane Keaton is right up my alley.I loved her wardrobe in the film.- boys shoes, loose elegant pants ,glasses, plaid blazer coats. So boyish but elegantly feminine.Not threatening to other femme fatales .
