Osteoporosis Calendar Girl Proves She’s A Real ‘Bone Diva’

NEW CITY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Thirteen women with osteoporosis are proud to be releasing a 2006 calendar called “Bone Divas,” and one of them, a 70-year-old model, is making no bones about fullfilling her role as a diva.

Fran Rossi, who was diagnosed with osteoporosis nine years ago, is Miss October.

She has no bones to pick over the photos, calling the calendar “fabulous,” but hopes the image of her looking lovely and healthy while swathed in crimson fabric will remind other people with osteoporosis to exercise and take their medication.

The single mother of four turns 71 next month and says she knows she looks good for her age, but insists, “It’s not anything I do. It’s God given, believe me.”

And while Rossi thinks she might get some admirers as a result of the calendar, she wants to make it clear that she’s not looking for a husband.

As she puts it, “All I want is a maintenance man and a chauffeur.” The Bone Divas calendar is available for free at ivillage.com/bonedivas.
