From an in-depth
interview with The TupperDiva(TM)
Wave: You've been a registered TupperDiva(TM) for many years. In fact, you won
the Ms. Tupperware® USA pageant several months ago, didn't you?
Yes, I did. I trained very hard for that and I'm glad that my perseverance paid
What kind of training did you do? A special diet? Extra hours at the gym?
I went on a Tupperware® collecting binge and bought everything in sight. I now
officially have the largest collection of Tupperware® and Tupperware® related
merchandise in North America.
What kind of pageant is that?
you run your pageants your way and we'll run them ours.
Yes, well, is the tiara you're wearing from the pageant?
not. This is my TupperDiva(TM) special occasion tiara. It's a little fancier
than the TupperDiva(TM) everyday wear tiara I wear to dust and go to the store.
This is very fascinating.
TD: Yes, I'm
sure. The world of the TupperDiva(TM) holds many mysteries for the common man
Could you explain?

for instance, I began doing special "Meet and Greet" sessions at Tupperware®
parties but had to end that when the crowds became too unruly and mobbed me.
What was the worst situation?
TD: My fans
were rushing towards me and a melee ensued and my arm was fractured. But I took
it in stride and was very gracious -- that is what being a TupperDiva(TM) is
I had no idea your life is so difficult.
TD: I'm sure
you don't. I've encountered many difficulties and setbacks in my days as TupperDiva(TM).
For all practical purposes, I've been banned from Ebay. Those jerks. And I don't
care what they say -- it's not against the law to try to corner the market on
vintage Tupperware®. I've got my lawyer working on this as we speak, but those
stupid anti-trust laws don't apply to Tupperware®.
So you've got legal problems?
TD: Just a
few. I mean, when you're the TupperDiva(TM), it's natural for people to become
jealous and try to destroy you. But my empire shall not fall so easily!
TD: I mean...my
reign as TupperDiva(TM).
Yes, well...How do you keep track of all your Tupperware®.
TD: Oh, my.
That's a very good question. It took some time, but I finally worked out a very
detailed archival system. You see, every piece of Tupperware® has a manufacturing
number. And I've logged every piece into my very special proprietary database.
I had to have a program created specifically for me and my collection. And it's
got more security features than Fort Knox.
You spare no expense...
not. There is nothing too expensive for my babies.
Where do you store all of the Tupperware®?
TD: I have
a 20,000 sq. foot warehouse.
TD: That is
very privileged information. If I shared that, it might mean the end of my empire...I
Anything else you'd like to add?
TD: Just my credo. I've been collecting for a very long time. Some say I'm a bit maniacal about the whole thing. But Tupperware® is not something that you love a while and then throw away. It's a love deeper and more passionate than anything most people will know. My credo, my Tupperware® coat of arms if you will, is: Tupperware® is a way of life!
