Even as a child, I found a way to survive.” – Eartha Kitt

One of my favorite quotes from the legendary Eartha Kitt. Seeing her survive and thrive from her troubled upbringing gave me inspiration that I too can become something great… no matter where you’ve come from.

Eartha became known for her distinctive voice and was once called “the most exciting woman in the world” by Orson Welles. Her hit “Santa Baby” is something we still listen to now during the holidays.

She personified sex as the legendary Catwoman during the third and final season of  the 1960s Batman television series.

One of my favorite modern day roles of Eartha Kitt was in the movie Boomerang from 1992 as Lady Eloise. Too funny!!

I love this woman! She’s sexy, smart, extremely talented and unique. Her legacy will continue to live on.
