Datalounge's model for Momma (and perhaps her mussy): Rosemary Clooney

Singing about paper products in 1981, replete in caftan.

How did she get so morbidly obese that she had to wear tents, yet her face looked relatively normal?

She really wasn't all that fat.

She isn't wearing her merry widow.

I know about her nervous breakdown, but how about her artistry?

Some people are just lucky and don't gain weight in their faces, but as R1 notes, she really isn't that fat in that commercial. However, she was huge by the time she was in that episode of ER.

[quote]she really isn't that fat in that commercial

Look again. She is utterly huge in that commercial.

Like a walking refrigerator — that caftan is practically clinging to her back fat and gut.

She had to choose between her face and her ass, and she chose her face.

Get a load of the control freak at r12.

I'm not interested in the bitch's life story, R12.

I'm interested in her massive caftan-wearing period—and whether she is, in fact, who every Datalounger envisions when they reference Momma—inspired by an IG post made five hours ago.

I recently watched all of her movies, even the horrible "Here Come The Girls" and damn she was cute and sexy. Beautiful eyes, sexy body and an adorable, mischievous smile. George doesn't look like his aunt at all.

Queerty thinks she was bisexual: "Yes, the holiday season has arrived, and of cinematic fare, White Christmas will no doubt land on the screening list of many trying to get into the holiday spirit. Yet the great unsung (pardon the phrase) hero of this stalwart musical isn’t bisexual actress Rosemary Clooney, possibly queer star Danny Kaye, or even the unforgettable title song. It’s Bing Crosby’s steely blue eyes, tight bod and sensual voice that keep us coming again and again. As it were."

I can totally imagine her having sex with multiple men and women when José was on his trips. She realized he was cheating on her, so why not do the same?

One of the greats, a huge talent for natural singing and phrasing, and also an incredible presence. What happened to her career was not her fault, but the music suddenly shifted far away from her style, when she was still a young woman.

by Anonymousreply 17June 8, 2024 6:08 PM

Yeah, she was a very talented singer.

Good for her, doing commercials like Carol Brady (Flo Henderson). I'm sure it paid some bills.

And I agree - she didn't look super overweight in that clip.

I do remember Coronet paper products. WHET?

Clooney had an interesting second act to her career in the 1970s, when she toured with Margaret Whiting, Helen O'Connell and Rose Marie in a group act called [bold]4 Girls 4.[/bold] The club dates were so successful they basically did it off and on for a decade or so.

I think it’s so great they all got an extra decade of being wanted. It’s hard for performers as they age and fall out of favor.

[italic]”Each woman does her own familiar set--Margaret includes My Ideal and Tree in the Meadow, Rose Marie does a comedy stint with a few songs, Helen sings Green Eyes and Tangerine, Rosemary does Come On-a My House and Tenderly--mixed with a few new numbers like Billy Joel's Just The Way You Are, then the four join for a few verses of Together at the end.”

those coronet commercials always made me as a little galling dance around the living room.

Hollywood couldn't figure out how to shoe horn her into their system. she would have had a better career twenty years later
