True Stories Of Tinseltown

Part 4 of Iconic Romances of Classic Hollywood deal with the love and life of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Their divorce broke the heart of Millions of Americans that loved Lucy too.

My cohost April VeVea Whitaker and I discuss Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and their tumultuous love story. Desi was a compulsive womanizer but thought "How could she/Lucy be mad, they're only hookers." Nice try Desi. They stuck it out for twenty years. The divorce broke not only their hearts, but millions of their fans. We discuss how they met, their whirlwind romance, their success with Desilu and finally their divorce. Each remarried but we like to think they loved each other til the end. 

Thanks so much to April for doing this with me. I love that Ms VeVea.

Part 3 of Iconic romances of classic Hollywood. April and I discuss Tracy and Hepburn..Was Spencer really gay..

In part 3 of iconic romances of classic Hollywood we discuss Tracy and Hepburn. They have been controversial since Scotty Bauers book came out and said he had sexual contact with Spencer. First he told Katherine Hepburn biographer he fixed Katharine up with one woman, then he changed it to about 120..In the Katharine book the author claims they were beards for each other. We say, poppycock..HA! He stayed married until the day he died and K and S never went out publicly. That doesn't mean its not possible about their sexuality, but beards no way. Regardless we admire both very much and I believe they loved each other. So give it a listen..

Thanks so much to April for being my partner in crime for the series..She's the best.

I talk to Irene Tsu on her very fun read book Watercolor Dreams..The Many Lives Of Irene Tsu. Sinatra, Elvis and many others discussed..

Irene is not kidding about having many lives. We talk her coming from China to USA, and finding acting success at a very young age. She dated Frank Sinatra for two years after the divorce from Mia. Frank even brought her to meet Mia. Find out how that went. We talk her time with Elvis, turning John Wayne down for a drink in his trailer, her long relationship with actor/comic Dick Shawn, what it's like to get a piggy back ride from James Stewart and so much more. Irene went on a date with Jay Sebring, and met Sharon Tate, very soon before the murders. There is so much great stuff in her book that we couldn't get to. It's a light, fun, summer read kind of book. She even was in a beach movie with Frankie and Annette and Buster Keaton..

Check out the book. It's selling everywhere.

Part 2 of iconic love stories of classic Hollywood..April and I talk Bogie and Bacall..Perfect Love..Lauren says it was a marriage..

We talk the very iconic and much written about love story of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. They met when Lauren was 20 and Bogie was 45. A huge age difference but it worked. We talk Bogarts guilt about leaving Mayo "Sluggy" Methot.  They married and life was exciting. Lauren learned the ropes of Hollywood through Bogies pals and became one of the boys. Bogie at first was not keen on kids, but they had two. We talk their life, their loves, flirtations. The end of their love story came when Bogie was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. We discuss Laurens search for love after his death. They had it all....but did they? 

Thanks so much to my pal April for doing this with me. Our blonde bombshell series was lots of fun and I know the listeners will enjoy this. WE've got some great love stories coming up..I have a new friend name for April and I, Grapril. I know Cornball deluxe.

I talk to my dreamboat David Selby about Babs S, George Cukor, Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman and loads more..

I had so much talking about to my dreamy David. Yes, he is still well known by so many from Dark Shadows, but in this podcast we talked about his making a movie with Babs Streisand, how he became pals with Joanne Woodward through Dark Shadows and her Mom. Having a cold brew with Paul Newman. George Cukor directing Rich And Famous starring Candace Bergman and Jaqueline Bisset. George loved David with longer hair. Davids meeting with Cary Grant, some of the great guest stars from Falcon Crest. Gina Lollobrigida was quite fond of David and invited him to Italy. You will have fun listening to his stories, I know I did. 

Thanks so much to David for coming on the show. I'm so grateful we are friends. 

Mostly, thanks to the listeners. You are the best.

Love you all,

Grace

Part 3 I talk to Author Stephen Tapert on his fab book Best Actress: The History Of Oscar Winning Women..So informative and FUN!!

I talk to author Stephen Tapert on his wonderful book Best Actress: The History Of Oscar Winning Women. It's so fab. We start with the number one winner and go through the thirty's, forty's, fifties and some sixties. We talk the Joan and Bette feud, was it really about Franchot Tone?? Those Oscar winning battling sisters Olivia and Joan and so much more. The is a great read and Stephen knows his stuff. I know you will have lots of fun listening. WE talked for over two hours...we could have gone longer.. We talk the upsets.  We talk one actress who thought the night she won the Academy Award was the loneliest of her life. Betcha won't guess. Put on your movie star shades, sip some champagne, or coffee and give a listen. I had such a great time and learned so much. 

Thanks so much to Stephen. You were such a delight.
