MARILYN MONROE WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG AND INNOCENT

This 1941 class photograph from Ralph Waldo Emerson High School in Los Angeles is going up for auction at Bonhams next month because the girl who was to become Marilyn Monroe is among the students. Fifteen year old Norma Jeane Baker signed the back of the photo for a school friend of hers named George. She wrote: “To Georgie, A super swell fellow, in fact, really keen! (I really mean it Geo!) Norma Jeane Baker.” Her choice of words is so charming. Bonham’s expects the photo to go for around $9000.

    Janet, what is the implication of that statement: young and innocent?

    In truth, Norma Jean was sexually molested/RAPED at a very young age. Like many victims of abuse she didnʻt get the proper help and I believe it deeply effected her and caused her own self-abuse and unhealthy choices of relationships in her later years.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    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?
