PATTY DUKE: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Valley of the Dolls star Patty Duke became a hot property in the tabloids before her manic depressive diagnosis. At the age of 23 she created a scandal when she dated 17 year old jailbait, Desi Arnaz Jr. Desi’s mother, Lucille Ball, loudly objected, but Patty was frequently seen smuggling Desi Jr into her high rise West Hollywood apartment. On one of her manic days she handed the keys to her Rolls Royce as a tip to her Beverly Hills manicurist. The nail salon went up for grabs but the manicurist insisted on returning the keys. After her diagnosis Patty calmed down and went on to do her best work – both acting and otherwise.

    I don’t know most of her work because she was before my time but I do know about her work for the mentally ill and I appreciate her contribution to that cause.

    back in those days my mother got photoplay and silver screen gossip magazines. There were filled with wild stories about Patty and Desi Jr. having sex in a swimming pool! That was some wild reading.

  • 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?
