In other words, during the second of two Atlanta stops, the star of Bravo’s “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” stormed Midtown’s gay bookstore and coffeehouse to boost business with the same confidence and panache in which she invades the salons on her show.
Unlike the salons on her show, Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse has no trouble drawing a crowd, but Coffey certainly maximized its potential. Wall-to-wall fans stood in line to buy her book “It’s Not Really About the Hair,” have her sign it and get an earful from the outspoken diva.
True to her book’s subtitle: “The Honest Truth About Life, Love, and the Business of Beauty,” Coffey didn’t hold back with her adoring public in Atlanta either.
“The book was actually prompted by my fans, people writing to me and asking questions on Facebook, through my website and on Twitter. The questions were really not about the hair—from how did I come out, why I am so ballsy. I really just wanted to address those questions with people,” Coffey told Project Q Atlanta in advance of her appearances here.
The self-proclaimed “transformationalist” who converted her turn as a contestant on Bravo’s “Shear Genius” into her own show also talked about home life with her partner and making a career out of helping people look on the outside the way that they feel on the inside.
