Blaze Starr (born Fannie Belle Fleming; April 10, 1932 – June 15, 2015) was an American stripper and burlesque star. Her vivacious presence and inventive use of stage props earned her the nickname "The Hottest Blaze in Burlesque". She was also known for her affair with Louisiana Governor Earl Kemp Long. Based on her memoir Blaze Starr! My Life as Told to Huey Perry (published in 1974), the 1989 film Blaze told the story of latter affair starring Paul Newman as Long and Lolita Davidovich as Starr, with Starr herself acting in a cameo role and as a consultant.

I live in Baltimore Maryland and work about six blocks away from the 2 O'Clock Club. I live in Baltimore County, near Carroll County where Miss Starr was/is living. She use to sell her jewelry in Eldersburg at the Carrolltown Mall. This is where I met her several years back. She was a very nice lady and we took a picture together. We talked about the Block and she signed my paperback of her book. She also gave me a necklace that she had made. Again, very sweet person.

She was born Fannie Belle Fleming in 1932.
She had a long affair with Earl K Long, Gov.of Louisiana and brother of the infamous Huey.
She and "Uncle Earl" would close the "Sho-Bar" strip club on Bourbon St. and arrange a private party for JFK when he was in New Orleans. Some of these parties lasted 3 days. Earl Long announced his engagement to Blaze in 1960.
His family had him committed to an asylum immediately.
He died there a few days later, mysteriously on 6 Oct 1960, age 65.
