Default Andrew Ridgeley revealed Stevie was refused entry to a Wham! concert

Beyond commenting about this episode, I just laughed about Stevie's look.

I think we can interpret his comment that Stevie was "tired and emotional" about it as under the influence of god knows what.

She looks like a killer clown from outer space.

this was the era where you never saw her out without someone holding her hand or, worse, holding her upright.... often two people one on either side of her.

Stevie’s “Jose Eber” period — being seen around town with a trashy West LA hairdresser-to-the-stars. Some people might say that her public shenanigans helped keep Fleetwood Mac’s name in the limelight, whereas others might think her Tinseltown lifestyle strewed plastic glitter over the band’s increasingly precarious integrity. Stevie’s high-profile schmoozing became more and more indistinguishable from parody right about the time that her music was losing the forcefulness and passion it had in the seventies. I think she was losing sight of many serious things and making embarrassing decisions.

Yes, but that was the style for the time. She was far from the only one. Pomeranians became extinct.

I have to say when I look at all those identical men with the hair and the mustaches, Ken, Lindsey, Richard, I much prefer the wild, distinctive look of the eighties to the generic hippie look of the seventies.

She pal-ed around with Liz Taylor during this time as well.

Andy Summers writes in his memoir that she showed up at a Police show and stood offstage watching the whole time. He seems to imply they hooked up afterwards.

I loved how during this period where she was an absolute fixture in all the famous LA clubs, she would go out of her way to spin yarns to the complete opposite. She once gave an interview bemoaning how she "just couldn't" go out clubbing etc with her friends because of the whole double standard thing, that if they went out they would be characterized as, her words, "a group of loose, roaming women". When that's exactly what they were

She's clever, that girl. Pre-bias the fans so if they hear any wild stories they'll be disinclined to believe them. "Not Stevie, she's home at night curled up with her hot water bottle and her poems".

What an awful period in Stevie's life and painfully obvious that it was a foreshadow of things to come. This is the level of self-parody and "baby Jane Hudson". Whomever told her this look was cool appeared to have an agenda to make her look bad.

Very true! Remember how Ann and Nancy Wilson looked at this time?

I don't know which is worse, the hair or the skirt

And that's a fur coat. Mink or chinchilla. Blech.

Security was trying to do her a favor preventing her from going to a Wham concert.
