In a piece about Shirley Jones's upcoming book Shirley Jones: A Memoir, Globe (July 1, 2013) underscores the fact that Jones did drugs, boozed, turned down a four-way with her hubby and the Joan Collinses and used to shag bipolar "love of my life" Jack Cassidy in a garage near her house.
The jacket's as red as Shirley is—she is a conservative Republican.
I guess if we'd known all of the above, all of the below wouldn't have been so funny and surprising a few years ago...
I had such a thing for poor Bert Convy, who died young from brain cancer. He was the host of, among other things, Win, Lose or Draw, a series I loved...and it's coming back! Globe (June 3, 2013) says Disney Channel is hosting a new version of the game show.
Via Globe (June 3, 2013): Chris Christie's gastric bypass was performed by a doctor (Dr. George Fielding) accused of killing four patients. The man's rep is so bad he was smacked by a coroner's report for "his entrepreneurial approach" to medicine. Christie sure can pick 'em.
Globe(April 22, 2013) claims that Bill Clinton had an affair with an African woman who later died of AIDS. I guess that would bolster the magazine's not infrequent claims that Bill is all but dead if they could cook up a story that he's been battling HIV without even know it, even though I have no doubt he's been tested at every physical for the past 30 years.
Via Globe (April 15, 2013): There are rumors that NBC tried to quash any publicity surrounding lesbian on-air personality Jenna Wolfe's relationship with NBC reporter Stepahnie Gosk with whom she is having a baby
Via Globe (March 25, 2013): Sandra Harmon, 74, was one of the most successful writers in sitcom history, manufacturing the "ha!" for everything from The Bill Cosby Show (not the one you're thinking of!) to The Dick Cavett Show. Now, she's written a French-kiss-and-tell bio that would put a slutty Maury teenager to shame with its don't-hate-the-playa details.
A partial list of her conquests includes Donald Sutherland, Jimi Hendrix, Burt Reynolds, Norman Mailer (I believe he once wrote that if you fucked a woman in the ass, she would be a whore forever), Maximilian Schell, Michael Crichton and Eddie Albert, the latter of whom sexually assaulted her. Sounds like he was beggin' for a pitchfork in the rear.
