About Me

barb large file

Barbarella Fokos is a writer, producer, emcee, jetsetter, lush – oh, and a dominatrix.

As executive producer and host of Art Pulse TV, (airing July 2013) she takes viewers behind the scenes of everything art in San Diego County every week on NBC7.

Her monthly segment, “Stepping Out With Barbarella,” appears on NBC San Diego News in the Morning (in partnership with the Reader). She is also the former host of weekly 5 Questions with Barbarella on NBC’s California Nonstop channel.

Her primary column, “Diary of a Diva,” has appeared in the San Diego Reader every week since 2004. Quirky adventures and somewhat neurotic epiphanies continue to abound.
