magicfairy117Dec 17, 2011

Mary, could you please stop your trolling. You've proven enough that you don't know a thing about Rita. So please stop adding names to the list that don't belong here. It's outrageous what you're doing.

magicfairy117Sep 12, 2010

It`s funny how some obsessed Glenn Ford fan is coming here every day to vote for him, while there is no evidence that Rita and Glenn were ever more than just friends!

joe priceMar 31, 2010

magicfairy117Dec 3, 2009

I don`t know who`s adding wrong information. But Rita certainly never even dated Paul Newman, Marlon Brando or David Remar, whoever he is!

Yes, Orson really adored Rita, although he is quoted as saying that Earth Kitt was the most fascinating woman on the planet to him.
