5"4 according to google. Not exactly a giraffe though.
Google came up with 5"2 for me, are we talking about the same person?

ETA: Blame my maths skills

Imdb says the 70's/ Black Swan is 5'4 and the Padme/Swan Queen as 5'3 and Ms Reality Bites/the Dying Swan as 5'3.5 if that helps at all

Is it that sad? If the guys are appropriately respectful and in awe of who she is then maybe it's not so bad.

Wonder Woman is married to a lawyer and still works as an actress. Daisy Duke is still works - on the Young and the Restless! Jeanie is married, also she is in her 80s!

Maybe CJ Parker her life has been messy?

But surely all these actresses are getting money from DVD releases and syndication of their shows?
All depends what was in their contract back in the day.

The original Cat Woman from the TV series.

Yes in her 80s but still looks amazing.

You do get the feeling that some of these BL are simply a way of getting back at a celebrity who snubbed them or won't play the game.

Some of the hate towards Goop and Mrs Smith is that they guard parts of their lives or don't live their lives the way TMZ or whoever wants them too. That Mr and Mrs Smith didn't, and still haven't had a big wedding really frustrates the Gossip world.
Very possible.They didn't get the scoop. Boo hoo. These have nothing on one blogger who had an absolute Brangolina fixation for years and maybe still does. Reckoned to be pretty much her bed 24/7. This man spent enormous amounts of time writing large supposedly 'exposes', 'tell-all' books (that surprisingly, went nowhere), bitching about her and drugs and liaisons and more drugs non-stop. To the point where you wondered where his actual life outside of dissing the poor woman was.

I used to check in now and then but got sick of it when the pointledly nasty and accusatory script never deviated. He's probably still plugging away.

what was the blind about Paparazzi and Turn Back Time?

Surely those pictures today had to stem from something?

I think it's definitely her. There was a blind posted a while ago (a year or more) which said the same kind of thing.

Are you referring to Ianundercover? If so I was much the same i.e having a look now and again but then came to the conclusion he was a complete fruitloop and still waiting for his big break expose that quite frankly is unlikely to ever materialise-his website and the comments on it just make my brain hurt (or did, not looked for ages now).

Googled it and methinks its Ian Halperin.

When they say 'companionship' I wonder what that involves? If it really is just companionship, it's all a bit harmless I'd have thought.

And despite a huge income, many seem to fritter it away, spending more than they earn, and selling rights to future earnings is not unknown as a way of getting money now. Michael Jackson died more or less a pauper, the irony being that (it's claimed) post-humous releases have so far made $1.5bn.

To be fair not everyone was in MJ's boat.

Take the popular sitcoms of the 60's/70's for example, most of them were not as smart or aggressive as actors would be today. Remember merchandise didn't really kick into high gear before Star Wars. Only a few years ago there was a court case about the cast of Happy Days because their faces were to be used on poker machines. A couple didn't want it, others thought they deserved some money for their face being on something. In the end the machines went ahead and the cast got basically nothing.

All because of something they signed decades ago.

Its well known you are worth more dead if famous. Take Elvis his estate has made millions might even be billions since his death. Minute you are dead the records are re released, the figures people collect are made.

A friend is a big Elvis fan and they go on tours to Graceland and events in the UK a week long. Bring their children who then have grown up to do the same. He died in 1977 and loads of teenagers and in their twenties still buy everything to do with him.

From Crazy Days & Nights

Blind items Revealed

Kindness blinds


From April 11, 2014

This former A+ list entertainer (singer) who will always be A list especially by bartenders and people who think they can play the piano gave away about $5M last year to schools and programs to benefit music.

The Piano Man



From April 8, 2014

This late night talk show host doesn't get much press but is incredibly funny. He is also generous. He paid for the conversion of a van for the father of a staffer who was paralyzed. He also paid for the refitting of the house to make it accessible. Nice touch.

Craigy Ferg



From May 15, 2014

He might not look like your typical pop star, but this foreign born B+ list entertainer (singer) can spend with the likes of them. In a good way. While out the other night for dinner he picked up the tab of the table next to him. It was a couple celebrating their anniversary. He also paid for two bottles of wine, one each for the couple at $1000 a piece. Pretty nice gift.

Oh, I think he's really dead, but he wouldn't be the first artiste now pushing up daisies to make a mint for his beneficiaries. Elvis's widow and daughter are well in the clover as are some members of Jimi Hendrix's family. I know Whacko Jacko's album is of 'unreleased material' (which is usually stuff not good enought to release, though I haven't heard it so that might be unkind), but usually dead folk are recycled to death with compilation after compilation after compilation.

PS In my view the best Hendrix album was his last full studio recording, Cry Of Love.

And of course Elvis isn't around to spend it. And from what I've read, he was VEEEERY good at spending!

Friend mentioned in my other thread. For years she believed without a doubt Elvis was still alive, but he wanted to step away from all the madness and get well again.

She really believed on his 70th birthday he would finally step out again. She was totally heart broken when it did not happen. Now she does believe he is dead.

These are all lovely but I really like hearing nice things about Lego, he seems like a good guy and like he'd be fun to chill with.
