    I once knew a woman who called herself a “Shameless Hussey.”

    Her last name is Hussey, but she preferred being called “Shameless.” She called herself a “Brazen Hussey” the time she stripped on “The Phil Donahue Show” in 1993. A self-confessed thrift store queen, she had been invited as part of a how-to-be-frugal show.

    “It’s going to be really nice,” Nichols said Monday morning. “This, by far is a more formal event than anything we could do in the gym.”

    Nichols said 432 tickets have been bought.
