I was lucky enough to see Chi Chi Devayne live. She sang. She danced. She was it. After the show I tipped her $20 and she said “thanks for my new teeth, you’re cute. Give me a hug.” It was truly something that was special to me. She will always be a star.

Had to wait to express my sadness over Chi Chi Devayne’s death. I know her exclusively from TV, but she always came across to me as an extremely genuine and kindhearted person. Horrified she’s gone.
