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.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
