Actress?? You have got to be Kidding ??? CELEBRITY ?? I`ll buy that !!

JoanJun 13, 2009

Sound`s like June was a Husband Snatcher Like Patricia. Two Pea`s in a Pod !!!

GraceJun 8, 2009

So are we suppose to believe that Patricia Neal was innocent ??? I think that Trollop is a better word for her. She new that Gary was married.

Gary Cooper left his wife for Patricia Neal from 1950 - 1954 (approximately) It is rumored he ended relationship with Neal because he started an affair with Grace Kelly, while making High Noon or just prior to it,and simultaneously went back to his wife. Living with his wife and having affair with Kelly sure doesn`t sound like his wife won anything! He was not faithful to her until he discovered he was seriously ill, became a catholic and tried to change his life because he was ill, and eventually died from his illness. Gary Cooper was a great actor and he was a good person, however he had a weakness in his good character, just as all have some weakness in our good characters. His weakness being that he just needed versatility in his love life, he needed to spice things up.

BudFeb 1, 2009
