I found another link about the Time Warp Wives. This tells a bit about each of them. When I read this I assumed the media had probably sugar coated and twisted everything to be more of what *they* wanted.... and boy was I right. You can view more clips and perhaps the entire show here, depending on your browser.
I've read on one of my message boards that the three ladies are rather disapointed in how the program has gone so far. Leaving out things that they had taped, writing things that they never said, etc. I also read that they are not getting paid for the program.
This is quoted from the lovely Diane (the 30's wife),
"I think I speak for myself ,Joanne & Debbie when I say the newspaper article was complete fiction! Not a word any of said was used ,As for the documentry!!!!!All I can say is EDITED made us look complete nutters,I personally work full time,yes FULL TIME with modern people many of whom I consider dear friends(Shock horror modern people!!!!)"
Her "husband" from the show, (IRL they are not married, but have been together for 10 years), is quite upset about how they are being portrayed.
I quote him as saying,
"Diane went into this "Programme" in an effort to portray re-enactors as normal, intelligent, artistic, everyday people and has come out not only criticised by the press, but also by the "fellow" re-enactors/vintage people who have chosen to attack her "performance"."
One gentlemen said that having met two of the women in it, he felt it did not really capture the essence of what they do, who they are and their personalities. He thought editing made them out to be against modern life, modern ideals etc.
It's really a shame that they can't capture this hobby, or way of life in a true light.
I thought JoAnne (the 50's wife) looked awefully familiar! She is actually Miss Lola Lamour, you can veiw her MySpace page here. She is an incredible singer, you simply must click on her videos! I've seen other pinup type shots of her as well, just gorgeous. So, she too does have a "job" outside the home. She don't just scrub floors all day or fuss over her husband's every whim. Here's a clip from that link I gave you in the first paragraph. I ADORE her green frock and dressing room here.... and this really makes me want to perm my hair!!
All I can say is that I too dream of simpler days, but oh how I LOVE my computer. I was hoping a show like this would enlighten y'all as to how we vintage folk really are...we're really not goofballs.
