Nancy explains: "I met Ringo on a Monday afternoon in May 27, 1974. John had rented actor Peter Lawford`s infamous Santa Monica beach home where he and May Pang hosted many get-togethers. Girlfriends and wives were cooking in the kitchen and kids were swimming in the pool. It was a family get-together, rock `n` roll style. A seat was offered to me at the poker table and I found myself next to Ringo. He was so charming, playful, witty and cute as hell. He might have had sad eyes, but they were twinkling at me that day.
Two months later, I got a call from May, who announced she and John were back in town. They shuttled back and forth between New York and Los Angeles so I kept their funky `68 Barracuda in my garage. She asked me to bring the car to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and we would hang out and have some dinner. I knocked on the door to the suite expecting to see John or May, but Ringo answered instead. It took me by surprise and I said, "Oh, hello." Ringo smiled and said, "I remember you... you`re my poker partner!"
After we exchanged flirtatious pleasantries, we headed down to Sunset Sound Studios where Ringo was working on Goodnight Vienna. John, May and I spent hours encouraging Ringo as he laid down vocals. When he finished we ventured to The Fiddler, a favorite Sunset Strip hangout that stayed open late and served delicious fried fish and chips. It
had an old Wurlitzer jukebox. The two boys drank, dropped quarters in the jukebox, singing and discussing women, wives and life while May and I chatted, watching them.
Ringo turned more melancholy as we approached two in the morning, holding my hand, touching my face, and looking at me with those big
blue watery eyes. He weaved his way to the jukebox and punched in Charlie Rich`s "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" over and over again. At one point he was on his knees, resting his head against the speaker, which was at the bottom of the Wurlitzer.
"That poor guy," I said to John and May. "He`s still in love with
his wife. Look at him, his heart is broken." John said softly, "Nancy, he`s a good lad... give him a chance... you two will be good together." At that moment I didn`t realize just how prophetic John`s statement would be.
After our first date we were hooked on each
other. We just continued until one day we were looking for a house together and we were a couple. Our world was fast and on the move
all over the world. We had a place in Monte Carlo, England, Amsterdam and LA. Between the recording studios, movie premieres, promotion tours, traveling nine months a year and juggling the children, friends and family we were gypsies -- elegant gypsies.
Sometimes we would unplug the phones and hide out in our own house not letting anybody know we were in town. Just a few days of old
movies, some home made popcorn and our favorite meals. Those days were some of our best times.
The camera was a huge part of our lives. We were both posers and loved to give it up for the camera. He loved the way I saw things and encouraged me to shoot. One day he said he needed a new head shot for the new album and said, "You shoot it." We went out by the side of our house where the light reflected beautifully and we did our little session. After that we did his next two album covers --Ringo the 4th and Bad Boy, the "Ringo" TV Special and various other publicity images. He is a natural in front of the camera. There are images I took of him while in Morocco that are breathtaking. He actually looked like he could be a Bedouin lord... a flowing Black cape with a long hood... he merged with the culture and they accepted him as one of their own as we strolled through the Medina. We were living in our own personal movie in a foreign world and I was shooting it. What a trip!"
Nancy`s relationship with Ringo came to an abrupt end when he met Barbara Bach on the set of Caveman in February 1980. Nancy was actually engaged to Ringo at the time.
She was previously engaged to Ringo Starr, whom she sued for palimony.
