Chuck Wein: She couldn’t really cope with the day-to-day reality, and she always needed to have friends who understood that. Edie provided the glamour, you see, and the glitter… when she walked into some place, the whole room turned. And if they didn’t, she’d do something in the next twenty seconds that would make them. She’d giggle, or she’d dance and spin around.
She was voracious for people. Edie was one of the great devourers of all time. But her method of devouring was to entice. If you had a room full of twenty people and Edie came in, there was an energy uplift. It got everybody off their boring number. Here was this glamorous freak. People were willing to let Edie be the star. They just wanted to be around her because the glamour was there and it was like a beautiful-child vibration. If Fuzzy was going to play the game of “Ranch King,” she could play the game of ”The King’s Daughter.” She played princess everywhere she went.
