Me and Valerie

The problem is, I am the same height and weight as Valerie Bertinelli, and she is going around telling everyone she is fat. She is losing weight with Kirstie Alley on Jenny Craig! She's on magazine covers! She's on TV commercials! She's telling Rachel Ray about her fabulous new diet! How marvelous! (/sarcasm)

When these famous people decide they will lose weight for some major league sponsor like Jenny Craig, what if they don't? What if they can't? What happens then? Judy Garland time? Where's that dexedrine?

Speaking of Judy Garland, there is an exciting new group on Yahoo called The Judy Garland Experience that everybody should check out. The group features lively discussions, rare photo's, and the most amazing music files anywhere! This week they are featuring both of Judy's appearances from the Merv Griffin Show circa 1968. Hear her singing and talking with Margaret Hamilton, Rex Reed, The Ohio Express, Totie Fields, Marty Brill, Van Johnson, and Arthur Treacher, and others.
Judy is pure magic on these shows. The group also has audio files of her first concert at The Palladium in 1951, as well as both her songs from Valley Of The Dolls, taped phone conversations, interviews, radio spots, and more! The group membership includes Garland family members, authors, people who have made movies about Judy, other celebrities, and fans of all levels.
Truly, the most eclectic membership of any of the Garland groups or clubs. The only thing missing is you! Please stop by our little Judyville, once you visit you may never want to leave!

I love it that I am finally getting spam!

Holy shit, did I just see you mention

Valley Of The Dolls

That was Patty Duke, playing Neely O'Hara, a thinly disguised Judy!

After a lifetime of Liza Minelli's denials, are you finally admitting it WAS her?

And oh good God, Arthur Treacher???????

On Maggie J's recomendation, I am checking out your most excellent blog, and she is right, as usual!

I saw Valerie B.'s "before" picture on the People Magazine cover; am I the only woman in town who thought she looked gorgeous? And for some strange reason, I think Kirstie Alley looks just plain awful now, with her bleached blond hair, and bizarre wardrobe. Plus, although she still has plenty of curves, she just doesn't look right... jeez what some people will do to themselves because of some bad tabloid photos!

Daisy said...

Shado, you are sweet!

No, I am in total agreement, I thought the "before" photo was far better!

I am wondering why the Scient0logists didn't "cure" Kirstie's weight problem, the way she claims they cured her coke addiction?

Maybe they don't do food? :P

shadocat said...

is THAT was Kirstie Allie's claiming. that Scientology cured her coke addiction? Cuz it ain't so Miz Daisy!

Kirstie Aliie is from Manhattan, Ks. and one of my very good buddies, Denise, went to high school with her. She was a big ole druggie cheerleader(Kirstie), way before she went to Hollywood. Her parents cured her the old-fashioned way: sent her to Menninger's (when it was still in Topeka). Scientolgy, schmientology!!!!

oops! I mean is THAT what...

Daisy said...


Yes, she does claim L. Ron Hubbard's religion cured her! ;)
