Scared you, didn't I?

Listen up:

We're creating an alternate site.

This site will remain our special lil secret. One that you can share with one million of your friends.

We're trying to turn this into a business and hope we'll have your support. Needed a slightly, just ever so slightly less hostile website url. The new site will begin about mid November. We're in this for the long haul, so your patience will be rewarded, Donna. And the other four of you.

Hollywood Trainwreck 2009 calendar- June artwork

Pigtails infrequently invites outsiders into his part of the villa. He and companions Piggy Gugenham and Hamouflage have knocked off some rather large bottles of 'buie here in the sunroom of his wing. Mrs Nazimova has no idea that he's painted the walls, the window frames, a couple of frescos and the ceilings (it took him two days cuz he had to do it by himself). If you run into her please do not mention it, or that there is a second story to Villa Cugat.

365 days later we still miss him

If you watch these you won't have to wiki YSL, who left us one year ago today. My beloved husband Rusty was and is an avid fan.

Died this date in 1951

What do you know about Fania Borach?Originally buried in Home of Peace Cemetery in East LA, Fanny now resides with her daughter Fran, son-in-law Ray Stark and grandson Peter in Westwood.

Who left a mark as great as she?

If Mary Pickford was not the most important woman to live in the 20th Century, well, she certainly was one of them. Whatever I write here won't do justice to her contribution to the history of both the film business and her home of fifty years, Beverly Hills. She died today, in 1979 in her home, Pickfair:Pickfair, 1920All that remains of the original home is the swimming poolAnd a small sampler of this tiny dynamo

We always enjoy seeing her around the Garden

Cobina is not on good terms with Joan as she frequently greets her as "Livvy".

Monday, May 25, 2009

We will always remember you, Uncle Charlie

Possibly the greatest agent of all time, Charles Feldman passed on this date in 1968. He is shown in the bar here at the Garden with client Rita Hayworth. As you can plainly see, they both are warmly greeting Cobina as she comes to fish Pigtails out from under the banquette. They just love Mom.

The gentlemanly agent and producer resides in Hollywood near the love of his life, Jean Howard.

Take a stroll and say hi to old friends

Fifteen Years Later, She's Still Gone

I know you know I'm talking about Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, and this is her:Complicated life. Don't think I would have wanted to trade places with her, think of what she saw.

Honestly, the math here is starting not to make any sense

Remind me to ask Cobina if the "Big Bang" was loud when the solar system was formed
