Yes, the actual GLOW.

The one they made the Netflix show about.

In a new interview with USA Today, Ivory (real name Lisa Moretti), talked her time in the actual GLOW, and gave a review of the Netflix GLOW, which she says she binged-watched in two sittings.

“I thought it was a perfect thing to make a show from. As far as telling our story and whether it was true to life, I thought they made a good mix. … I’m glad it’s not a documentary because it’s probably going to be way more entertaining with the really good writers and producers who put it together.”

The real-life GLOW has endured in popularity over the years, particularly in the LGBTQ community, which had a special connection to the unbridled outlandish "Be-Yourself"-ness of the original offering.

“I understand it now because I worked with the best of the best, but I didn’t get at first that people have an extreme passion for wrestling and the wrestlers. The fans are really intimately connected with each wrestler. I also think that anything that has a collection of women, there will be a sisterhood that people will relate to whether they are guys or girls. There is a power to sisterhood. I also have come to learn that we had a large gay population that appreciates GLOW. In the mid-1980s, there wasn’t a representation of gayness on television. Our glitter and our goofiness and our great costumes made in Vegas; the cheekiness and campiness of the show, it turns out little boys who were gay coveted our act. I went on one of the GLOW cruises last February and all the fans were gay guys. We had so much fun together. That was a new education to me.”
