“My mom threw me out of the house at seventeen for getting pregnant, then had me arrested when I tried to get my clothes. Then she fucked the head of parole to try to keep me in jail. She was some prime pussy back then. But the warden did some tests on me and found out I was smart, so I got a scholarship to go anywhere in New York. I chose the Fashion Institute of Technology, which I hated. But by that time I was already getting work making costumes for the strippers and porn stars in Times Square. All my friends were gay people, because they never judged me. All I did was gay bars: drag queen contests, Crisco Disco, I loved the whole scene. And I couldn’t get enough of the costumes. My friend Paris used to sit at the bar and sell stolen clothes from Bergdorf and Lord and Taylors, back before they had sensor tags. So I had the best wardrobe: mink coats, 5 inch heels, stockings with seams up the back. I looked like a drag queen, honey. One night a Hasidic rabbi tried to pick me up because he thought I was a tranny. I had to tell him: ‘Baby, this is real fish!”

The Internet lost it when a story told by a former stripper named Ms. Stephanie aka Tanqueray went viral after it was posted on Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York blog/Instagram. Honey, Ms. Tanqueray instantly went viral after she shared some shocking, yet funny, details about her life as a stripper in the 1970s.  And the hashtag #RealFish was born.

The first line of her story instantly draws you in, leaving you itching to learn what happened next.

“My mom threw me out of the house at seventeen for getting pregnant, then had me arrested when I tried to get my clothes,” she shared. “Then she f*cked the head of parole to try to keep me in jail.”

LAWD!

Ms. Tanqueray shared how she ended up getting out of jail and securing a scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Technology. She said she hated it, but it helped drive her real passion, which was designing clothes and costumes for strippers and porn stars in the old Times Square. One night, she said she was mistaken for a transsexual and the last line of her story took us OUT.

"So I had the best wardrobe: mink coats, 5-inch heels, stockings with seams up the back. I looked like a drag queen, honey. One night a Hasidic rabbi tried to pick me up because he thought I was a tranny. I had to tell him: ‘Baby, this is real fish!”

We die! Read her full story above.

She shared two more stories that captivated readers about her past with mobsters and former presidents. Check them out below:

Now, we're about to get MORE of Tanqueray's Tales! And we're so here for it.

Ms. Stephanie's publicist JDot of the JDot Agency told PageSix while she has been offered book and documentary deals, she wants to launch a podcast. YASSS! That's perfect.

"She said she’s been approached by everyone you can imagine — from book deals to movies to documentaries," he said. "She’s going to shift her attention first to a podcast. She said it seems most ideal because she’s a storyteller. We talked for about an hour before she got on the bus.”

"She used the exact same colorful language that was in the blog post.” He said that Tanqueray “told us about the places she frequented and how people would go to these places to do things they couldn’t with their spouses, like S&M and cross-dressing.”

I’m still in awe. A story too good that I just had to post this. And the story goes a little something like this. Just wrapped lunch with @fatal_ice and as soon as we leave Panera Bread, I look to my left and who do I see? “Is that her?” I say. Ace says “hold up, is that who I think it is?” And she says, “yup it’s me!” Ladies and gentlemen, we met Ms. Stephanie aka Tanqueray! Today was nothing short of EPIC. We spent a little over an hour talking with her about everything you can imagine. Just imagine all the stories you’ve read Brandon highlight on @humansofny times two. This lady is so EPIC and truly a living LEGEND. People instantly recognized her constantly throughout our conversation standing on 7th Avenue. She smiled and took pics with everyone as well. Oh, the stories she told us were amazing and soon we will all get to hear more! Yes — of course she’s being approached by every industry exec under the sun, but she wants to do things her way, the right way. Stay tuned because we’ll be getting a lot more from Tanqueray and her awesomeness.
