The Horror Honeys: Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'Natasha'

Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'Natasha'

You walk alone in the valley of life
In the shadow of love under the trees of happiness
You walk alone like a baby unborn
Like a father unknown
Like a pocket penniless
I'm happy that you really care
But do you really know
How scary
This is for you and is for me?
Oh do you you really know?
Do you really know?
All I can do
Is write a song for you...

This gorgeous song was featured in one of the best episodes of Nip/Tuck (S2, E11), but because that episode starred Rebecca Gayheart and she killed a kid (seriously, look it up) we're going to focus on the song's real-life connection to another woman much beloved at Horror Honey HQ.

In the horror and indie community, actress Natasha Lyonne has always been highly respected and adored. But like many stars who come to Hollywood young, she struggled with addiction, and even homelessness. It took years of work, and the support of her friends, but she fought her way back, and has become an even more remarkable presence than before. Personally, she's one of the few actress I totally respect, and who I believe is actually deserving of that respect, which is why she's in our Scream Queen Hall of Fame.

Natasha and the wonderful singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright were struggling with addiction at the same time, and he wrote today's Honey Jam for her. Which is why, without shame, I cry every time I hear it. Support your local Scream Queens, kids. They're people too <3. ~RH
