MARIANNE FAITHFULL GOT WHAT SHE WANTED – AND MORE

Back in the swinging 1960’s London scene, society girl and singer Marianne Faithfull was almost as famous as The Rolling Stones. The “As Tears Go By” singer was Mick Jagger’s beautiful girlfriend and every female wanted to look like her. She was the inspiration for Stones’ songs like “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Wild Horses.” Her perfect life degenerated into a mire of drug excess, heroin addiction, alcoholism, arrests, living on the streets, and health problems. After numerous visits to rehab, the gravel-voiced singer continued to record and put together a successful cabaret act. (She also wrote 3 books!) Marianne miraculously survived where many of her companions of the era did not. She’s 69 now and showed up at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week.

    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
