KATHLEEN TURNER HAS COME A LONG WAY

Kathleen Turner (seen here leaving a restaurant in Santa Monica) doesn’t look as hot as she did in “Body Heat” but she’s still getting work. (We particularly loved her in “Peggy Sue Got Married.”) She’s done a number of plays, and her distinctive husky voice has always been a money maker in animated features. Now she’s got a role on “Californication.”

    Loved her in “Man with Two Brains”. She was gorgeous. Now with the worst form of arthritis, the poor thing is in pain and on the decline. To be in the filthy Californication proves how far she has fallen. BTW, a little of that deep voice goes a long way.

    Seems odd to run such a nice message with such a shockingly unflattering photo.

    Just because an actress has gained weight doesn’t take away from her acting talent. This country has gone to h*ll when it comes to weight. If an actress doesn’t wear a size zero, she’s considered fat. It’s no wonder there are thousands of young women who develop eating disorders. How would the people making fun of her feel if THEY were in her shoes???

    Steroids for her rheumatoid arthritis killed her sultry looks. Glad she’s still relevant and getting work in H-wood.

    ^^^^…Steroids and the effects of long-term alcoholism. Her kidneys and liver are likely to be in awful shape — as evidenced by her appearance. Agree that “PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED” is a treasure, and “BODY HEAT” is a classic. She’s had some tough breaks (her health), made some bad decisions (booze; her marriage to NYC slumlord Jay Weiss), but all in all, Kathleen’s had a helluva career.

    I’m thinking that her kidney and liver are also screwed up. I once knew a functioning alcoholic who had this same body. Turner has also struggled w/, I believe, horrific arthritis. All of those drugs, including steroids, can mess you up big time. She is an amazing actress! :)

    I’m not saying anything unkind because this is all due to her illness. She has terrible rheumatoid arthritis and this is what the drugs do to your body. The moon face and the weight gain.
    I saw her about 8 years ago on Broadway and let me tell you, she mopped up the floor with the rest of the cast ! That woman owned the stage. I feel bad for her and only wish her well.

    She used to have such odd mannerisms when on tv talk shows–didn’t know it was because of alcoholism.

    She looks like a raging alcoholic to me, my dad died from it and had that same shaped body and face with the skinny legs. Plus I always hated her voice and the fake accents she used to put on in inteviews. I remember once, I think on The View, she came out with this fake ass spanish accent that sounded like hell. She was putting on airs like she thought she was hot shit on a griddle!! Soooo NOT!!!

    Kathleen Turner rules as an actress and as a human being.. She like alot of others have gained weight because of age and in her case with medications.. I applaud the fact she goes out and continues to work… Should she stop living because YOU do not like the way she looks? What boring world in would be!
    What do the people look like- that are criticizing her? Shut in’s that have no other life than to ridicule and be nasty! Be less judgmental about others and work on your attitude… Bring some joy into the world.. You may even learn to like yourself at some point.

    My sister had this type of body, puffy face and heavy core, with skinny arms and legs. She had problems with her pacreas and was told to stop drinking, but didn’t an ultimately died of cirrhosis of the liver at age 27. Cortisone can also make you puff up this way. I hope its the the cortisone and not her years of heavy drinking causing this problem.

    Janice might have mentioned.. She is swollen from the strong and dangerous medications she must take to keep her alive.

    No one can stay young and beautiful forever, bottom line. All of us will grow old and die. Elvis, Farrah, Bridget Bardot, all things pass. Sadly for the famous they have to do it in a fishbowl.

    She’s SO fat that it appears she appears to be gasping for air! What a tragedy to let herself go like this when one thinks back how amazingly sexy she used to be. And I’ve never been able to figure out how her once-cute nose got so flat and squished looking. She and Caroline Rhea now both look like they were separated at birth from Miss Piggy!

    I went to an accupuncturist on Wilshire Bl in Los Angeles that I had the most successful treatment I have ever had with. He has treatment for arthritis and a myriad of other things. He uses herbs, accupuncture and qigong together. I felt revived before I left his office. His name is Dr. Zou. 310.278.9298. Another guy that would enhance her treatment with colon hydrotherapy and other treatments is Ron 323.272.5634. (Both of these guys are good, I would combine their treatments. If she will do a parasite cleanse with the freeze dried green black walnut hull and wormwood herbs (this probably works best with raw food if possible). And drink 2 soy shakes a day, the protein will expedite healing as well as other things. Put a teaspoon of kelp in it to helpt thyroid. The 2 people I mentioned above should have her in execellent shape within 3 months or less, probably less if she uses both of them.
    I hope she see’s this post. I love to be of help. Janet, feel free to contact me if need be.
    Thanks!

    My father died from complications of RA. Her bloat is due to the drugs, trust me. Stop ragging on her, she’s got more talent than any of you have in your left pinky and she’s in enormous pain.

    JANET – Seriously, what is wrong with you? Kathleen Turner has been on steriods for years to treat her rhumatoid arthritis. What kind of a sad excuse for a gossip columnist are you when your readers have more information than you do? And shame on you for picking on her because of a health issue.
    Why no articles on men who have let them selves go? Huh? It’s OK for Mickey Rourke, Nick Nolte, Alec Baldwin, etc. to grow old and fat naturally but there’s no excuse for a woman? And how about the fugly leading men all over the silver screen to help other “revenge of the nerds who never got laid in high school” have their little fantasies of boffing a gorgeous actress. Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Adam Sandler, Matt Damon, that fat guy from King of Queens, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon – serious mirror shattering ugliness. How about an article on that?

    Nothing is “wrong” with me. I am well aware of Kathleen

    Janet – I still think that you need a fact checker. Or perhaps just be more forthcoming in your posts. You are supposed to know it all doll – which is exactly why I check out this blog every day.
    But honestly, if you have known anyone who has to undergo steroid therapy – their beautiful faces puff up like moon pies. There are legions of old Hollywood alkies who aren’t looking like this… right? I am sure that you could treat us to a 100 picture slide show. Still think it was mean.

    And yes, among Dr. Zou’s many treatments are cancer as well. Quite successful in helping to restore the body in a short period of time. Jot the number down from above.

    How could I forget to say that as her body gets stronger and begins to operate on its own, she will be able to say goodbye to all of those drugs she is taking and her former beauty will naturally return. I do apologize for raving so much about Dr Zou, but I have seen the results. Seeing that I can’t get in touch with Kathleen, I hope she is reading this post. she is fortunate to have people who love her.
