I bring forth yet another exclusive interview with the one and only Joan Richardson–better known as GabsDiva.
RicanPinUpDoll: GabsDiva; How did this name that is now developing into a brand come about?
GabsDiva: Well, it started with my party last year *Diva Goes Legal* and the Gabs part; I guess it was just a good idea one day and it’s stuck, especially with my promotion thing growing. My friends advised me to brand it and its became way bigger then I thought it ever would. Thanks to EVERYONE that’s supporting me,without y’all I wouldn’t be able to do something I TOTALLY love! (this is not a fan shout out) [laughs]
RicanPinUpDoll: You reached 5,000 Facebook friends to the point whereby you had to make a fan page and that as well is increasing with numbers WOW! How does this feel–would you consider yourself a socialite?
GabsDiva: From previous interviews and general talk with the public, I have been asked this question on what I consider myself as and YES! I am a socialite! I don’t think anyone goes out as much as me! [laughs] Honestly, it’s not something i’ve learnt to become but it’s always been there. I’ve been going out from a very young age and obviously at the time I didn’t think it would be like this! but it has! and, I don’t have a problem with it! I wouldn’t be a successful promoter, etc with out my social status! [smiles]
RicanPinUpDoll: I would say your Facebook statuses are quite infamous for you post up anything to everything on them; more or less like a blog and many people follow/comment, would u consider it as being your trademark?
GabsDiva: My Facebook statuses to be honest aren’t meant to entertain people but they do! What can I say my life is eventful! [laughs] My statues have definitely been the thing to make people send me requests but, yeah kinda–sorta! … they do make me,me.
RicanPinUpDoll: For many of those that are real curious and anxious to know, is GabsDiva single/taken/complicated/widowed?
GabsDiva: ijaaaaa! u just had to ask that! Soooooooooo! sentle sentle! I’m SINGLE! [smiles] Nobody wants me! [singing– “I am so lonely*] [laughs]
RicanPinUpDoll: You previously hosted the event “GabsDiva presents The Big Boys” and recently; “GabsDiva presents Rock the Girls.” Could you please tell us a little about these events– how these names for the events came about?
GabsDiva: Thanks again to Bull & Bush and the dj’s and artists that allowed me to part of these gigs. Dj’s and artists approached me to promote their gigs and I was cool with it. I sold them the idea of naming it *GabsDiva Presents … * and they were cool with it! As I have a following and they also do, we both benefit [smiles] and obviously if i’m there, it’s going be a ROCKING party which it obviously was. And I’d like to thanks again to everyone that came through! I hope u had a blast!
RicanPinUpDoll: Is GabsDiva currently focusing on entertainment, or you are going to branch out into other sections?
GabsDiva: Right now im focusing on events. I’m still hosting at clubs,parties and sessions. I have planned friends baby showers, etc, those kinda small things. It’s just a learning curve but, if this GabsDiva brand grows more and there’s room for other things, I’ll definitely jump on the wagon!
RicanPinUpDoll: Any current adventures / future projects you are working on?
GabsDiva: Right now i have a line up with some BIG dj’s coming up. Teargas is coming to Bull & Bush May 1st, F.eu are returning in september and the rest, well that’s still under wraps, wena just watch this space and don’t forget to miss out on the party! [smiles] but, my BIRTHDAY party of course!
