Vivacious thrush Stevie Niche is currently nested in a house in L.A. that used to belong to silent screen star Vilma Hanky, a foreign beauty who was married to another early idol, Rod LaRoque. Said Stevie: “You can tell the house once belonged to someone glamorous. It has a real presence about it." It might have looked like the Damned's REat Scabies and Runaway Joan Jett were about to get cozy in last month’s Backstage photo, but actually they came to blows minutes after our photographer took the picture.
