Celebrity Drama That NEVER Dies

What celebrity drama remains fresh, timeless, for every generation after it?

The one I tire of the most is the rehashing of Courtney Love conspiracies, not so much herself nor Kurt but the thousand and one connections of people in the peripheral that get pulled up into the varied conspiracies to be used as devices to fuel the main conspiracy. . . that one can't discuss the Seattle music scene in of the 80s/90s without opening the door to a flood of those nutters.

R1 fails at both being the traditional bitchy cunt R1 or the over-zealous "ME FIRST" poster who offers something hackneyed and sincere.

No one cares, R1. It ain't the thread.

The thread is about Liz Taylor's marriages, Bowie and Jagger, Marilyn's travails that last year - not your plop of JFK-Lite.

Drug deaths, the murder of William Desmond Taylor, Frances Farmer spring to mind.

The Closet Chronicles, 1902 - Present

by Anonymousreply 7March 17, 2023 1:58 AM

Didn't Fatty Arbuckle break a young actress's pelvis while raping her - she died and he was ostracized but not criminally charged? Oh those 1920s.

And Marlene Dietrich aborted Jimmy Stewart's baby. And she jumped up and down with glee when one of her many exes, Yul Brynner, got lung cancer. Her daughter wrote quite the saucy tell-all without really being all that hard on Marlene, but made it obvious she had a severe personality disorder. She used actually stick pins to pull her skin up (a do it yourself face lift) during that last singing tour, before she fell and broke her body -- then she lay in bed for many years as a recluse, in Paris, I think?

I can't remember what Greta Garbo got up to. Oh and Rudolph Valentino's vampire-like (beard) wife?

Sorry to go back so far - I just love the 1920s dramas, when being a wanton whore (m or f) came into fashion.

Anna Nicole. There was the drama with the Marshall family and the will. Then all the drama with the baby and her son dying and then her death and Howard K Stern and Larry Birkhead.

Fatty didn't do it, but the legend lives on.

He was charged and went through several trials but was ultimately acquitted.

G and her Oscar. Just give her one already so she shuts her whining.

Madonna. She won't let the drama die.

Probably can’t do it now but I walked right into the St. Francis, into the elevator and up to the 12th floor. I got a picture of the suite of rooms where Roscoe’s ill-fated party took place. 1219, IIRC.
