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!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
