Happy 90th Birthday Sweetie. Always remembered. My favorite star.

lupita263Oct 26, 2015

She is absolutely overrated for a W H O R E

mennaelshamyJan 27, 2015

I believe she wanted to be a legendary by her looks, and she didn't want to grow old and become an old lady

karl anglinJul 11, 2014

Newly released book indicates possibility of affair with Dr Ralph Greenson.

MorrisonJun 10, 2014

Who ever think this wh0re is pretty must be blind or mentally handicapped.

MorrisonJun 10, 2014

Don't know what's worse. Regular wh0res using her as a role model to behave like a wh0re, or fat wh0res using her as an excuse to be fat and u g l y.

1991jae91Mar 24, 2014

absolutely gorgeous may she rest in peace

Lovinglife1212Mar 18, 2014

WigmonOct 28, 2013

Oh, Craig, are you sure about Marilyn? Yes.

CraigSnyderSep 6, 2013

She is one of the most iconoclastic women of all time.

RedfaceJun 16, 2013
