First she shook her fringed
mini-dress on Celebrity Duets and made America realize Lucy Lawless
wasn’t just the Warrior Princess anymore. Then she won the hearts
of lesbians everywhere at her two sold-out concerts at LA’s Roxy Theater
and a follow-up set of shows in New York City. This weekend, it was
Although I couldn’t get there,
there are those who could, and fortunately for Lucy and Renee fans everywhere,
they agreed to spill. KT (the other KT, not the KT who does photography

Then she teased Lucy with it a bit, and then I guess I blinked or something
because suddenly Lucy had the tickler and was whipping it around Renee,
who turned away from Lucy and received a few swats on the butt as she
danced away. This was a real crowd pleaser of a pas de deux.
