Down To Eartha Kitt

Many people don’t realize how ‘simply’ my mother Eartha Kitt lived. Even living in the heart of Beverly Hills, CA, my mother was true to her name (Yes, Eartha was her given name) and we had chickens, roosters and a vegetable garden. Now, remember, this was in the 1960’s, way before it was ‘chic’, ‘cool’ or ‘in style’ to grow your own food. My mother was the original ‘Beverly Hillbilly’.

    It is almost impossible describing the many sides of Eartha…She has so many.
    She was an incredible woman, a great human being and on top of that a one-in-a-lifetime-performer. I hope she will be remembered for that. As for ME: I liked both Eartha Mae AND Eartha Kitt …

    I love everything about Eartha, ever since I was a child. What a wonderful daughter she has & what a nice job you’ve done on the web to share your mom with everyone. Much Thanks Kitt~Susan Brooks

    I just recently discovered who Eartha Kitt is. I have always heard the Santa Baby song but never her version and I must say I wish I knew of her sooner. I googled her interview and immediately I was struck by her honesty and sureness of herself. It’s rare to see such honesty on TV so immediately I scavenged youtube for her interviews and I have seen all that I could find. I wish there was more and I’m glad to have found your blog. Your mom was a wise woman and genuine soul it comes across with no effort. How blessed you are to have had her as your mother and from the interviews it is evident she loved you dearly and she surely was blessed to have you as her daughter. Thank you for allowing us a deeper glimpse into a life so deep.

    I loved reading Eartha’s autobiography. She was/is a rare individual who had the strength and conviction to challenge received “wisdom” about the personal and the political. As you point out, Eartha’s views, particularly on health, were way ahead of her time and still relevant today. Hopefully, young people will be turned on by Eartha Kitt’s legacy to be healthier and live authenticly.
