SHIRLEY TEMPLE: THE GOOD SHIP LOLLIPOP HAS SAILED AWAY

Shirley Temple was too cute not to honor with an official good-bye. She passed away at the age of 85 yesterday after a long and successful life. She was the number one box-office star from 1935 to 1938 when America was still hurting from the recession. Her mother was with her every day on the set of every movie. In 1939 she lost the lead in The Wizard of Oz to Judy Garland and her career started to decline and she retired at 22. But the fortune she had earned was protected in a trust for her. Shirley was a pioneer in celebrity endorsements. Her Shirley Temple dresses, cereal bowls, curly wigs etc, and most of all her DOLLS, earned her more money than her movies did. She had a successful 55 year marriage to her husband Charles Black.

    I heard a sound bite today from her saying that of the $3 million she earned, she was left with only $44,000 in her trust fund. Luckily, her second husband was a successful businessman!

    RIP Bright Eyes. A Class Act. Current female “celebrities” could take lessons from a gracious, smart, sophisticated woman like Mrs. Black.

    I believe it was the Depression and she didn’t “lose” the role, her studio wanted more money to lend her out for the role.

    She had the good sense to leave the biz when she did and build a good life with family away from Hollywood.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
