True Stories Of Tinseltown

Part 6 Frank and Ava are the iconic couple we discuss today. They passionately loved, the, passionately fought.

April and I talk Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner. These two crazy kids were crazy about each other, and made each other crazy. They were up and down. Sometimes love just aint enough. We discuss their meeting, Frank was still married to Barbara, their eventual marriage and their horrible jealousies that drove them apart. 

 

Thanks to April as always..

Part 5 of iconic love stories of Classic Hollywood are the musical couple Betty Grable and Harry James…Harry rumbled with George Raft over Betty..

On part 5 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood my pal April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Pin up Betty Grable and Harry James. They both had crazy childhoods. They met and it was KABOOM. The problem was Harry was still married to wife numero uno and Betty was involved in a two year on and off relationship with George Raft. After some drama they married. Harry was on the road a lot and Betty stayed in Hollywood doing movies. They both got addicted to booze and gambling. Their daughters definitely did not think Betty was Mommy Bestest. She was distant and could sometimes be abusive. Harry was away he got to be Disneyland dad. There was infidelity, IRS problems and after a while absence did not make the heart grow fonder. Betty found out about Harry's infidelity (she had heard rumors but chose to ignore them) in a gossip column so that was it after 22 years of marriage. We talk after the divorce up to their deaths. We believe they loved each other up until the end.

Part 4 of Iconic Romances of Classic Hollywood deal with the love and life of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Their divorce broke the heart of Millions of Americans that loved Lucy too.

My cohost April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and their tumultuous love story. Desi was a compulsive womanizer but thought "How could she/Lucy be mad, they're only hookers." Nice try Desi. They stuck it out for twenty years. The divorce broke not only their hearts, but millions of their fans. We discuss how they met, their whirlwind romance, their success with Desilu and finally their divorce. Each remarried but we like to think they loved each other til the end. 

Thanks mucho to April for doing this with me. I love that Ms VeVea.

Part 3 of Iconic romances of classic Hollywood. April and I discuss Tracy and Hepburn..Was Spencer really gay..

In part 3 of iconic romances of classic Hollywood we discuss Tracy and Hepburn. They have been controversial since Scotty Bauers book came out and said he had sexual contact with Spencer. First he told Katherine Hepburn biographer he fixed Katharine up with one woman, then he changed it to about 120..In the Katharine book the author claims they were beards for each other. We say, poppycock..HA! He stayed married until the day he died and K and S never went out publicly. That doesn't mean its not possible about their sexuality, but beards no way. Regardless we admire both very much and I believe they loved each other. So give it a listen..

Thanks so much to April for being my partner in crime for the series..She's the best.

I talk to Irene Tsu on her very fun read book Watercolor Dreams..The Many Lives Of Irene Tsu. Sinatra, Elvis and many others discussed..

Irene is not kidding about having many lives. We talk her coming from China to USA, and finding acting success at a very young age. She dated Frank Sinatra for two years after the divorce from Mia. Frank even brought her to meet Mia. Find out how that went. We talk her time with Elvis, turning John Wayne down for a drink in his trailer, her long relationship with actor/comic Dick Shawn, what it's like to get a piggy back ride from James Stewart and so much more. Irene went on a date with Jay Sebring, and met Sharon Tate, very soon before the murders. There is so much great stuff in her book that we couldn't get to. It's a light, fun, summer read kind of book. She even was in a beach movie with Frankie and Annette and Buster Keaton..

Check out the book. It's selling everywhere.

Part 2 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood..April and I talk Bogie and Bacall..Perfect Love..Lauren says it was a marriage..

We talk the very iconic and much written about love story of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. They met when Lauren was 20 and Bogie was 45. A huge age difference but it worked. We talk Bogarts guilt about leaving Mayo "Sluggy" Methot.  They married and life was exciting. Lauren learned the ropes of Hollywood through Bogies pals and became one of the boys. Bogie at first was not keen on kids, but they had two. We talk their life, their loves, flirtations. The end of their love story came when Bogie was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. We discuss Laurens search for love after his death. They had it all....but did they? 

Thanks so much to my pal April for doing this with me. Our blonde bombshell series was lots of fun and I know the listeners will enjoy this. WE've got some great love stories coming up..I have a new friend name for April and I, Grapril. I know Cornball deluxe.
