What a kick! It was a fabulous 4th of July at Muscle Beach Venice—hot but not sweltering, and the stars were out. I’m referring to one particular star, eight-time Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray, and that I got to be on hand when she was inducted into the Muscle Beach Hall of Fame on Monday.
It’s been almost 21 years since I got my first look at the one-time pro football cheerleader from Detroit and her Wonder Woman physique. The place was New York’s Beacon Theater. The occasion was the ’90 Ms. Olympia, which Lenda won in her pro debut. (The headline, then as now: “Hooray for Murray!”) Girl, you haven’t changed a bit!
Thanks to Joe Wheatley for inviting me to be part of Lenda’s big day. To see my interview with Lenda, click here.
