Hot Rat alum Erica “Hotpants” Hornung was downed this summer by an ankle injury that she claims was incurred while “stepping off a curb”. While I may not approve of Erica’s new occupation, I must congratulate her on her sense of style. Last week Erica wrote in to say that her foot was healed and that she was “working a convention” in Texas. Furthermore, she was dancing for a man who hired her and “eating lots of red meat”. We’ve been assured that these photos are the genuine article.
