Tamara brooks died in May 2012. He married Aimee Ginsburg Dec. 29, 2013, over a year and a half later. That's hardly "barely in her grave." The man is 89 years old, for God's sake! How long do you expect him to wait?

CookieJan 4, 2014

What a colossal joke this man is! HIs third wife, Tamara Brooks, is barely in her grave and he's remarried to a 52-year-old woman named Aimee Ginsburg. Pathetic.

Patti GJun 9, 2010

Disgrace is being polite. Theodore Bikel is narcissistic, selfish, and incapable of being faithful to any woman. (And, he doesn`t even know how to kiss.) It`s all about his ego and his self-gratifcation. He also re-gifts.

ShapCookMar 22, 2010

Theo Bikel was involved with at least two other women when he embarked on his affair with Tamara Brooks. Of course, he remained married to Rita until Tamara gave him an ultimatum.

CMFeb 24, 2010

The previous comments by Kathy and Adrienne are verifiable and accurate.

Adrienne DFeb 1, 2010

Theo Bikel is a dishonest and despicable individual who has capitalized on his fame. He`s been a monochromatic actor for many, many years. Just loves to hear himself repeating anecdotes and embellishing tales of self-aggrandizement. Btw, he`s a lousy lover.

Kathy SegalMar 17, 2009

Theo Bikel had multiple affairs with several women at once and remained married to Rita until his latest great love affair with Tamara Brooks. The man is a disgrace.
