Dita von teese dating count
In all of this, one thing is crystal clear: Von Teese isn't interested in Manson's money.When she decided the marriage was over, she didn't change the locks on their home. She did take their Devon rex cats, because there was no one to feed them and it seemed like the right thing to do."I think he appreciates women who are willing to dress in an eccentric way — women who aren't just trying to follow fashion." These are the women Von Teese admires, too. "I've always wanted to have dark hair and play the image of the femme fatale without actually being one." She stops and laughs at herself. But I'm not officially divorced yet, so I have a conscience about things.She loves Gwen Stefani and Madonna for their fearless style, but her real icons are the stars of old movies: Hedy Lamarr, Rita Hayworth, and Dita Parlo, the silent star from whom she took her name. "I'm not really fatale at all, as I'm sure you can tell! And I feel like I'll come out better in the end if I take my time and get through it and feel all the pain, do all that emotional cleansing." She's not looking for any specific type, she says. "I'm excited, in a way, about the adventure of life and what's next.I'm very much a girl's girl; I'm not the mantrap, home-wrecker kind of girl at all."

"No comment" is all Von Teese will say, but I can't help noticing that her hands — beautifully manicured, of course, and painted the same red as her lips — are shaking.
I'm not much of a drinker — or a drug user — on a regular basis." But she also says that Manson's recreational habits weren't the main problem.
"I know who I married," she says, shrugging, "so it wasn't some surprise." As well as drink and drugs, other reports about the breakup have mentioned Lindsay Lohan, but she dismisses that as "sensationalism.
"I think we always had a lot in common that way, that we both created characters for ourselves and we're both from Middle America." They originally met at a vintage-clothing show, but their relationship began when Von Teese was invited to one of his concerts in January 2001.
