As if she stepped right out of the pages of a Jackie Collins novel, Elaine Lancaster is as glamorous and beautiful as any of the characters from Collins' "Hollywood Wives". In fact, Elaine took her name from Elaine Conti and Karen Lancaster, two fictional divas in that very book. As befitting a Collins' novel, Elaine's life has been filled with glamour, travel, celebrities, and a few twisted scenarios. One being the fact that the gorgeous Elaine Lancaster is a man when not performing.

    The actor (James Davis) behind Elaine was born in Alabama and raised in Georgia, while Elaine was born in the lap of luxury, pampered by all, and spoiled rotten. Like the true diva she became, she managed to spend every dime thrown her way and yet she still yearns for more. Not just more jewels and designer fashions, but more of everything the world has to offer. Driven by the need to be in the spotlight, fame had to be hers, and the world became her stage.

    The most sought after hostess, Elaine has worked all over the world in clubs, for charities, for special events (including the Dennis Rodman Starck Club opening [Oct. '96] with Rupaul, Gay Pride at the Roxy with Kevin Aviance, The Elton John Dance for life ballet in Aspen, Co., Code Blue's New Year's Eve Party in Atlanta, 'An Evening with the Stars' Auction and Show in Dallas [which she founded], Hostess for The Aspen Gay & Lesbian Ski Week [the largest gay & lesbian winter event in the world], and Hostess for White Party Week both in South Beach and Palm Springs. Constantly in demand at clubs like Limelight, Bar Room, Liquid, Shadow Lounge, Warsaw Ballroom, Life, Level, Space, Red Square, and Roxy, Elaine travels from city to city working with the likes of Rupaul, Kevin Aviance, Lady Bunny (who has been a dear friend since childhood), disco legend Thelma Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Martha Wash, Lolita Holloway, and Dennis Rodman (also a very good friend. Despite what the tabloids say, just good friends).

    The camera loves Elaine, and the Diva Lancaster loves the camera. Her television credits include Entertainment Tonight (4times), Deco Drive, the NBC sitcom Wings, A Current Affair, Inside Edition, Ocean Drive Television, and Hard Copy. Elaine is also hostess for Wild on South Beach, a one hour E-TV entertainment show. Many remember her dynamic appearance in the HBO documentary "Drag Time" which aired in January '98. Recently she made her feature film debut in "The Versace Murder" which was released as a television movie in the United States after a Cannes debut and a theatrical run in Europe '98. Soon to be added to Ms. Lancaster's resume will be appearances in the movies "The Crew", "Fabulous", and a BBC documentary "Miami Undercover". Diva Lancaster has also been fingered by Warner Bros. who, as of this writing, are developing a role in a film they are currently producing, designed especially for Elaine.

    Of course the glamorous and beautiful Elaine has to be all looks and no brains, right? WRONG!! Writer Elaine pens a column called go diva for Miami's hottest publication, miamigo. After she takes off her lashes and removes her make-up, she works on "Home Cooking with Elaine". This project is a television show that she is developing for herself, naturally! The cooking that Elaine plans to feature on her show has absolutely nothing to do with food!

    Elaine Lancaster landed in South Beach just two and a half years ago and quickly became a local celebrity. Vanity Fair's writer George Wayne even named Elaine the Best Local Celebrity. Both Channel Magazine and New Times selected Elaine as the Best Drag Queen for 1999-2000. Rarely does a publication appear without at least one photo of the tantalizing diva known simply (okay, nothing about Elaine is simple) as Elaine Lancaster. Ocean Drive Magazine profiled Elaine just a few months before adding her friend Dennis Rodman to their pages. Elaine continues to spread glamour, beauty, and share the goodness of her heart with the men of the world while entertaining everyone else. Elaine's world renowned illusion of Cher has been lauded even by Cher herself. Jackie Collins would be proud to have created Elaine Lancaster.
