THE LATE JOAN FONTAINE SEEMED TO LOVE DOGS MORE THAN PEOPLE

While everyone seems focused on the death of Peter O’Toole, we lament the loss of American actress Joan Fontaine at the admirable age of 96. We loved her in Hitchcock’s “Rebecca” and “Suspicion” and her rivalry with her older sister Olivia de Havilland never ended. The Oscar winning beauty must have been quite a handful in her private life. She was not on a speaking terms with most of her family and many of her leading men found her “difficult.” In 1939 she appeared in “The Women” and went on to make 13 successful movies in the 1940’s – her heyday. Joan’s sister Olivia is 97 and living in Paris. Joan may have clashed with people, but she was always a dog lover – when she died she had four canine companions.

    A dog will never steal from you(except your heart), lie to you or tell you to f off. Good for her.

    Good for her. I prefer dogs/animals to humans myself. There a lot of reasons for that. Now let the woman rest in peace….

    When Vanity Fair interviewed her about 6 years ago she said she had finally found “contentment” at her age (which was 90 at the time). It’s sad she died pretty much alone with her “assistant” telling the world of her passing, instead of a family member. Rest in Peace.

    sometimes animals and strangers are better to you than your own family.

    HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT?

    Is this openly gay TV personality who already suffered a painful loss, headed for another stay at heartbreak Hotel? He has a new YOUNG boyfriend and he’s doing everything he can to promote the lad’s career. But, BEHIND HIS BACK, the conniving cutie is having a fling with the personal trainer they both share! Our unsuspecting TV guy doesn’t have a clue because the hunky trainer has a green-card marriage and plays it straight.

    Whodunit?? Guess who.
