PERFORMER Stephanie D'Abruzzo
DEBUT 2017

Diva Garbagedump is a Grouch who appears in a series of Sesame Street YouTube videos, "The Real Grouches of Sesame Street."

She stars in the faux-reality series, alongside Oscar the Grouch, Grundgetta and Grover (the token "cute one"). She is described as being a "trash-digger" and agrees with that moniker. The videos show her entrepreneurship, as owner of the trendy club "Fur" (with Waiter Grover at her employ) and author of the best-selling book, Cooking from the Can. Also on display is her vanity, as evidenced by the fact that the other Grouches hold a talent show each year for the sole purpose of making her the center of attention.

She is always seen with her pet dog (performed by Frankie Cordero),[1] who is never named in the videos, but is affectionately referred to as "lintball."

She is a parody of Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who has often brought her dogs on the show.
