2 thoughts on “A Religious Experience – Tammy Faye Bakker”
After Jim went to jail, Tammy Faye divorced him and married Andover KS contractor Roe Messner and for the first year or so she lived in his ostentatious mansion east of Wichita. During that year, Tammy Faye sightings around town were pretty common and eventually I had my own. I was walking back to work in Wichita’s Old Towne district one lunch hour and there she was: a tiny little thing dressed like a carnival sideshow attraction exiting the Coleman factory outlet store on a side street. There were a couple of bulging bags in her hands as she tottered up the street. The entire block was NO PARKING so I have no idea where her car may have been. BTW: her makeup, while typically garish oddly seemed to work with her overall look. I’ve always regretted not taking a few extra minutes to help her with her bags. The following year, she and Roe moved to his spread out in California and their visits here in Wichita became very rare.
That fanny pack, though…
In all seriousness – I adore this site (and now the podcast). I have been a fan for almost as long as it’s been up and running. I hope to one day make it to a tour and enjoy the sights. Keep doing what your doing and thanks for the hours upon hours of entertainment and information.
Your snark is unrivaled!
