Melanie Griffith and her mother Tippi Hedren have always been close, and they did some Christmas shopping in Aspen. Did you know Melanie was named after her mother’s character in “The Birds?” If we were Tippi, we’d just buy everyone on her list that new limited edition Barbie “Birds” doll. Do you suppose Tippi gets any money from that doll?

    No, the makers of that doll (Barbie) aren’t going to share a single cent. Tippi was paid for her role, and that will be that. By the way the doll is pretty cool, it has black birds clinging all over it…I thought about buying one but then decided not to. The black birds were cool tho.

    Wow Janet, a Tippi Hendren post! That is awesome. I wish you would do more old-school posts about Silver screen starlets. How about some Joan Crawford or Ava Gardner?.I would love to see some vintage Ava Gardner picks. Meow!

    Haven’t I read both Tippi and Melanie lie about their ages?

    Guess if she’d named her after her character “Marnie” — who was a nymphomaniac — Tippi would have some ‘splainin’ to do LOL.

    Does the old casting couch from the golden days of Hollywood still exist? If so, did Melanie, the homewrecker, partake? I read an article by Antonio’s ex-wife, AnaLise (spelling?) that said Melanie flat out stole him…even tho they were having a little trouble that she and Antonio were going to counselling. Then along came Melanie, and that was that.

    You cannot “steal” a man without his consent.

    I would imagine so but I also think she wouldnt make a big deal about it if she wasnt getting a cut, doesnt seem like the type. I did not know that is where Melanie’s name came from. Thanks for the Tippy update, you work fast Janet !!!

    The ambitious Antonio needed instant entree to Hollywood – he leapt from cult Spanish actor to household tabloid name in a heartbeat. Still there’s always a price to pay in life and I guess being married to a barbie doll that’s been left to close to the fire has its drawbacks ….

    TIPPY HAS DEVOTED LOTS OF HER LIFE TO HER BIG CATS ON THAT RANCH….DIDN’T SOME GUY GET HIS HEAD RIPPED OFF A WHILE BACK ON HER RESERVE ?

    Wait a minute. Melanie was born in 1957 and The Birds was released in 1963. That’s 6 years AFTER Melanie was born! Someone got their facts worng.

    Tippi is a fabulous mother…NOT! She stood by while a 14 year-old Melanie moved in with Don Johnson, who was over 21, and I believe already divorced. If Tippi cared a bit more about her daughter and a bit less about animals, Mel might not be a disfugured mess now.

    Ha, they’ve both got the same eye-lift!
    Janet, what’s up w/Melanie’s daughter, Dakota? She sure missed out on the family fame-n-fortune acting bandwagon. Just a druggie still?
