Stephen King likes Revenge for the ‘great clothes’
May 23rd, 2013 under Books. [ Comments: none ]


Stephen King did an interview with Parade magazine to promote his new book Joyland and they asked him what shows he is currently watching on TV. He told them “Justified, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead. The best show of the year is The Americans. I don’t watch Mad Men. I think it’s basically soap opera, and if I want soap opera, I watch Revenge. That show is crazy, but they have great clothes.” I get Bates Motel and The Walking Dead, but Revenge that I just don’t get. When I think of the greatest horror author of all time watching TV, I don’t picture him watching a show about a woman getting revenge on the people in The Hamptons, who got her father sent to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. I just don’t.
The mind of Stephen King never ceases to amaze me. And on his brilliant mind, am I the only one who can’t wait until June 24th at 10p to see Under the Dome on CBS.

Florence Henderson’s TMI

Florence Henderson has written a memoir and according to Reuters in it she shared a story that none of us really needed to know. Carol Brady, the sweet and innocent mom on The Brady Bunch, details how an one night affair left her scratching.

Henderson, now 77, recounts in her upcoming memoir that she was cheating on her husband during the 1960s, and gave in to her better judgment when her married and unattractive friend put the moves on her over drinks at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
“I was lonely. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it,” she writes in “Life is Not a Stage,” set for publication in September.
Henderson went home later that night, and awoke to a grisly surprise the next day as she saw “little black things” crawling over her bed and body.
An urgent call to a doctor took care of the problem, known medically as pubic lice, and Lindsay sent her flowers and a note of apology.
“Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata,” Henderson writes. “He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”

I have to admit that story got me wanting to read the book until I the article added that only one chapter in the book is dedicated to the show that made her household name. That is all I care about when it comes to her.
BTW her TV daughter Susan Olsen aka Cindy Brady to Twitter to defend her TV mom, she said “SOOO sick of the vapid media. Give them a good book to read and all they get is a case of crabs.”

David Cassidy says he has a huge one…
February 27th, 2007 under Books. [ Comments: none ]

Former teen idol David Cassidy is telling all — in the U.K. The heartthrob who crooned for “The Partridge Family” in the 1970s has written a no-holds-barred memoir that will be published in Great Britain next week – but there’s no U.S publisher. “Could It Be Forever” tells of Cassidy’s drug use, wild sex, his infatuation with Meredith Baxter, a romp with Barbara the Butter Queen who liked to cover her sex partners with butter, and an encounter with 1950s screen star Gina Lollobrigida. “I’ve always been very comfortable with my sexuality and my brothers call me ‘Donk’ — as in Donkey. People have talked about me being ‘blessed’ in my physique,” Cassidy writes in the book. “The first time [I met Gina Lollobrigida] she looked me up and down and said: ‘I hear you’re a monster. I want to meet the monster.’ Well, I decided that if I had it, there wasn’t any point in just keeping it in the holster all the time.” A spokeswoman for Cassidy says “Could It Be Forever” is being published in the U.K. because the 57-year-old singer is still almost as popular there as he was in his heyday. Discussions are ongoing with a U.S. publisher.

I thought the rumor was that he was one and not that he has one. I hope he goes on Howard Stern and is called on it like another little teen star…Screech.

Kirk Douglas’ sex memoirs published
February 19th, 2007 under Books. [ Comments: 5 ]

Kirk Douglas has written a new memoir about his colourful sex life. The 90-year-old Oscar winner has recalled how he lost his virginity with his teacher and enjoyed bizarre bedroom sessions with a German airline stewardess. In ‘Let’s Face It – 90 Years of Living, Loving and Learning’ Kirk reveals: "I had been a ragamuffin kid of 15 coping with a neighbourhood filled with gangs. Under my teacher’s guidance I became a different person. I am eternally grateful. "By today’s standards she would have gone to jail. I had no idea we were doing something wrong. Did she?" The ‘Spartacus’ actor also romanced a "big, tall blonde" airline stewardess who loved being "disciplined" in bed. In the height of passion, she would scream "I’m a Nazi!" which was Kirk’s cue to slap her. While enjoying an active sex life, Kirk insists he did have some morals about love. When he was seduced by a wealthy girl one summer, he refused to take the relationship any further because he was more interested in her Cadillac. The Hollywood legend said: "I met a very attractive girl with rich parents. She said her father would buy us a nice apartment in New York and take care of all of our expenses while I was in drama school. "She had a beautiful Cadillac and there was the extra dividend of good sex. What else could a poor Jewish boy want? But deep down inside I knew I would end up as a man without character. Bottom line, I just couldn’t do it." Kirk also revealed Ava Gardner once turned up at his apartment in the middle of the night crying over her marriage to Frank Sinatra. He said: "Ava was sobbing. She said they had had an argument. Frank had a gun. He threatened to commit suicide. I said, ‘Ava, married people have arguments. Frank loves you. You must go back and try to act like nothing happened.’"

TMI! TMI! TMI! This kind of explains how Michael Douglas got his sex addiction, don’t you think?
