Dancers Kevin Stea & Carlton Wilborn: "Living to Tell"
Dennis visits the Hollywood home of Kevin Stea to talk to Stea and Carlton Wilborn about the new documentary they appear in "Strike a Pose," which reunites the male dancers from Madonna's ground-breaking Blonde Ambition Tour from the early 90's. They talk about how the film came about, what it was like to be together again after 25 years, on-the-road romances and whether or not Madonna has seen the film. Carlton talks about being a part of the subsequent Girlie Show tour and keeping his HIV a secret while Kevin recalls the lawsuit he was involved in over compensation--or lack of compensation--for "Truth or Dare" and the sticky backstage prank that was played on him during the final show. Other topics include: their favorite moments in the concert, clubbing around the world, what they'd talk to Madonna about now if they happened to run into her and what dance means to them in their lives. www.madonnadancers.com

DENNIS ANYONE? Yes please!
Do you want to know what it's really like to struggle as an artist? Do you have great affection for what you do, know you have the skills, and STILL can't catch a break? Well, take a stool next to Dennis Hensley and marvel at his conversational skills with such wonderful guests as James La Rosa, Willem Belli, Bryan Thompson and Jonathan Tolins. Dennis' travails come through loud and clear. There's a through line here, no matter who is on as his guest, which resonates so deeply with me, and hopefully should for you too. He makes people open up and tell the truth. It's a gift worth celebrating.
