Cami Sebring

Cami Sebring was born in 1943, her birth name was Bonnie.  As a teenager, she moved to California.  While attending high school, she was discovered by a modeling agency and talent scouts for movies.  

According to  her high school pal Carrie White (who became a famous Hollywood hairstylist), Cami met Jay Sebring while still in high school.  She showed up at school one day with a hairdo that all the girls loved and Cami told them that Jay had styled her hair.  According to a Cami interview I read quite a while ago, Cami and Jay were married a month after they met.  Supposedly Jay gave her the name Cami.  They separated just before their 3rd anniversary and their divorce was finalized a year and a half later.  

I've had contact with someone who knows Cami and she told me that Cami has never said a bad thing about Jay.  She just said that they grew apart and decided to get a divorce and remain friends.  This friend told me that Cami learned how to cut hair from Jay... and has been known to style her friends' hair.

Standing only 5'3' tall and weighing only 103 lbs., Cami wasn't a runway type of model, but her gorgeous face was definitely considered to be perfect for cosmetic ads.   

Cami modeled for Revlon, among other companies.  Here's a photo of her from a Revlon Ad:.
Walt Disney spotted her photo in a magazine and chose her to appear in his film "The Gnome-Mobile," playing a female gnome named "Violet."

(NOTE:  unless specified otherwise, photos are from 1966 to 1967)

Here's a photo of her from the movie:
Here are a couple publicity photos taken during her Disney days:
 Another publicity photo:
This is from an Esquire magazine photo spread, the first color photo is the first page and the 2nd color photo is the last page.  (I have this magazine): 
Here she is in a bikini from a LIFE magazine photo shoot (I have this magazine):
Here she is as a blonde:
I've always thought that he and Sharon resembled each other.  Look at Sharon in "The Wrecking Crew" with the dark hair, there are lots of similarities.  According to something I read quite a while ago, Cami and Sharon never met.  They knew some of the same people.  

Sharon had posed with Linda Kaye Henning when she was supposed to be in "Petticoat Junction" (Linda played "Betty Jo").  Here's Cami with Linda Kaye and other starlets, Cami is in the middle of the top row, Linda Kaye is next to her.  
Here's Sharon (on the right) with Linda Kaye, in the middle (circa 1963):
Cami made a few TV appearances, but as far as I know, her last appearance was in an episode of "Quincy, M.E." in 1980.  Here she is, playing a nurse:
Here's a lovely photo of Cami taken by famed photographer, Harry Langdon (not sure when this was taken):
Cami was married (again) briefly in the late 1960's.

Here's a weird bit of trivia:
On the day that Roman Polanski fled the U.S., he stopped at a restaurant and had breakfast.  Who was his waitress?  Cami's Mom!!  She mentioned her connection... Roman hugged her... and they chatted about Jay.

Now, I know that there could be snide comments about the fact that she was young when she and Jay were married.  Keep in mind that it was common then!  I have several female relatives who were married as teenagers in the 1950's and 1960's and their husbands were well into their 20's (if not older).  It was pretty common to marry a guy who had an established career so the little woman could stay home and be a housewife.

Cami will be appearing in the upcoming Jay documentary.... 

Thread Compiled by Venus.  Thanks Venus!!

Thanks Venus!
Good Job!

katie8753 said...

Thanks Venus!! Interesting stuff!!

I have searched for years for info on Cami and I only came up with little tidbits like she was in the Disney movie. I always wondered why they divorced.

Do you know where they met? Did Cami live in the house on Easton Drive??

Venus said...

Katie, in the thread is a tidbit about how a pal of Cami's said that she and Jay met while she was in high school. I really don't know if it's true tho. I'm hoping that we'll learn more when she appears in the documentary. Her friend told me that Cami said they just grew apart and that's why they divorced. They remained friends tho.

As far as living in the Easton Drive house, I'm not sure. I've heard that Jay bought it in 1960. If so, she did live there. But, I don't know for sure.

CarolMR said...

She was a real beauty. Yes, I see a certain similarity with Sharon. Cami seems like a sweet person, just like Sharon, too. Nice bit of info about Roman being served by Cami's mom. It was sweet that Roman hugged her and they talked about Jay. Never thought I'd say "sweet" and "Roman" in the same sentence!

Venus said...

LOL I know what you mean, Carol.

CarolMR said...

Venus, do you know what Cami's maiden name is?

Venus said...

I've heard of a few different ones, I think the spelling has been mesed up so I don't want to post it here because of the various spellings. (did that make sense? LOL)

starship said...

Wow, this is very interesting, and all new to me too. Brava, Venus.

Now, if I weren't a gentleman I would be thinking about asking Cami if Jay ever tied her up while they were...ok, never mind.

katie8753 said...

Hi Carol!

Venus, when is that documentary going to air, do you know?

I'm assuming that Cami retained the Sebring name and never changed it? Do you know where she is and what she's doing now?

I had never seen that pic of Sharon with Linda Kaye. Thanks! :)

CarolMR said...

Hi, Katie!

Venus said...

LOL Starship. All I can tell you is that her pal told me that Cami never said anything bad about Jay.

As far as I know, Cami is still in LA. I'm assuming that she's retired as she's 70 years old now.

Katie, that is a nice pic of a young Sharon, isn't it?

Venus said...

Oh, Lynyrd, you're playing my song! LOL (Carol's too) That's how I got my username, I'd just heard the song on the radio and it was stuck in my head. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably use Ann-Margrock.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

For Katie:

"The Katy" in this Blues song, refers to a popular fast rain.
Katy, or KT, stands for The Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad.

"Mule" in this song, refers to a slower-moving local train.

This song is performed by my man... Albert King... the "Velvet Bulldozer".

------------------------------

The MKT (or "Katy") was incorporated May 23, 1870.

In its earliest days the MKT was commonly referred to as "the K-T", which was its stock exchange symbol; this common designation soon evolved into "the Katy".

The Katy was the first railroad to enter Texas from the north.

"My baby caught the Katy, and left me with a mule to ride"! LOLOL

CarolMR said...

Thanks, Lynyrd! I love "Oh, Carol" by Sedaka! Haven't heard it in a long time. You made my day!

CarolMR said...

Venus, it looks like Way Bandy did Cami's makeup for the Revlon ad. I'm sure I'm the only one old enough to remember Way.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

And now... one just for me:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SutO9tW9k9g

katie8753 said...

Lynyrd...cool....thanks! I'd never heard of that train.

katie8753 said...

Starship...LOL. Our boy Jay knew how to "work that bootie".

Carol, what's Way Bandy??

Doc Sierra said...

Here's one especially for people from Texas and Oklahoma......

My favorite David Allen Coe song.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Doc!

That's one of my favorites too!

AWESOME SONG BRO!

DAC ROCKS!

"Cuz my long hair just can't cover up my redneck"!

Doc Sierra said...

Hi Katie!

Jack Daniels if you please:

This is a mellow one, but still one of his best:

Doc Sierra said...

Awesome dude... Toadly possum.....

CarolMR said...

Katie, Way Bandy was a famous makeup artist in the late 60s, 70s, and 80s. Sadly, he died from AIDS in 1985. He worked almost until the day he died. He did all the Cosmopolitan cover models' makeup and most of the Harper's Bazaar models.

Doc Sierra said...

That's funny, I once claimed to have done all the Harper's Bazaar models too......

katie8753 said...

Thanks Carol. I've never heard of him. But I was never really into that kind of stuff in the 60's.

I was reading Tiger Beat instead of Cosmo. LOL.

I do remember Yardley of London makeup though. Twiggy and all that....

katie8753 said...

DOC!! HA HA. I wonder if all those models remember you.... LOL.

Doc Sierra said...

No they wouldn't. I'm selfish and quick......

katie8753 said...

Hey Doc, how do you feel about The Drake? Love or Hate?

Doc Sierra said...

I'm watching it right now Katie. I love the Drake but not as much as Drake's Coffee Cakes......

sunset77 said...

Wikipedia says "In October 1960, Sebring married a model named Cami – a union which ended unofficially in August 1963."

"Cami Sebrings" IMDB page can be found HERE.

"Cami" had a part in the Disney film "The Gnome-Mobile". The film is on YouTube for $2.99, I found it free HERE. If you don't want to watch the entire film, I think "Cami" appears at around the 74:00 minute mark near the end as "Violet".

katie8753 said...

Yeah I love Drake's Coffee Cake too. It comes in handy if you wanta keep from getting beat up by a guy who might come out of a good coma.

katie8753 said...

Hi Sunset!! Thanks!

Doc Sierra said...

katie8753 said...

The same reason why I hold a garlic shaker with just my thumb and forefinger.....

katie8753 said...

Doc said: The same reason why I hold a garlic shaker with just my thumb and forefinger.....

Isn't that the Van Buren boys' sign??? LOL.

katie8753 said...

Doc, I thought I was the authority on Seinfeld, but I do believe you've got me beat.

I propose a "contest". LOL.

We can each pose a trivial line from any episode and the other has to say what episode it's from. You don't have to know the name the episode, but just describe the plot. The first one who misses it, loses.

Now this is completely on the Honor System (as Jerry would say). No Googling the answers, just memory.

If you're in agreement, raise your pinky thumb up! :)

katie8753 said...

Hey St. Circumstance, if you're reading this...tonight is Game 6: Spurs Vs Heat. LOL.

That's what I'm gonna watch tonight.

Love ya Dude! I hope you're okay! :)

Doc Sierra said...

Ok Katie, sounds good. When I first read "contest" I thought you meant something else.... The wheels of bus go round and round. Round and round. Round and round........

Doc Sierra said...

Here you go Katie.
Kramer: I don't want a big flat noodle......

katie8753 said...

Okay Doc, that's the one when Elaine jaywalked to talk to the virgin and Ping ran into her and spilled the Chinese food, except for the pea pods that Kramer wanted.

We'll do this one at a time. You, then me.

I'll give you one trivia tonight. Otherwise we'll continue this manana. This is a hard one:

Waitress: what gave it away?

Doc Sierra said...

You got me there Katie.

katie8753 said...

Ahhh Doc, that was probably too vague. That was the one where the girl called Jerry that she was coming to NY to visit and wanted to see him, and George was telling him that she was lying.

"The surprise blindfold greeting. It wasn't in the manual".

BTW that waitress in that episode was supposed to be the "girl figure" in the series, but she pissed Larry David off, and he fired her. Enter Julia Louis Dreyfus who knew Larry David from his brief stint on SNL.

Elaine was born.

Another trivia point, Julia had a half sister that appeared in several episodes. She was the blonde that gave George "the finger". LOL.

katie8753 said...

Watching the Spurs.... Night y'all!

Doc Sierra said...

OK Katie. You watch the Spurs while I watch the A's finish off your Rangers.
G'night.

katie8753 said...

Halftime:

Spurs 50, Heat 44. YEAH!!!

katie8753 said...

G'night Doc. No matter who wins, you're still the champ! :)

katie8753 said...

75 to 65, Spurs leading in the 3rd Quarter. LOL. Go Spurs!!!

katie8753 said...

Oh well.. LOL>....

Night...

katie8753 said...

Does anyone have any info on that documentary about Jay??

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Katie,

I don't know if you watched the whole game... but the Spurs lost a heartbreaker last night in overtime.

The Spurs were up by 6 points, with less than a minute left.
LeBron and Ray Allen each threw down a 3-pointer to tie the game.
From there, The Heat won in overtime.

The series is now tied 3-3.

The Spurs had a chance to clinch the championship last night, and they gave it away.

Game 7, will decide the championship.

I'm pulling for the Spurs.
I'm not a "Heat" fan.

katie8753 said...

Lynyrd I did watch the whole game and it was sooo disappointing. They missed WAY too many free throws.

Game 7 will be in Miami tomorrow night. I hate that The Spurs won't have their home court. But it's gonna be exciting.

Doc Sierra said...

I swore I'd never watch NBA basketball again after the 2001 Western Division playoffs. That series had to be fixed. In fact one of the refs in that series went to prison for fixing games a couple of years after. It was difficult for me. NBA used to be my favorite sport. I had Sacramento Kings season tickets 3 years in a row back in the 90s. I will however, watch game 7 and I will root for the Spurs......

katie8753 said...

Thanks Doc. I don't know if I'll watch the whole game or not. Too much suspense. I may just watch the last quarter. LOL.

katie8753 said...

Hey Venus, check this out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19uKU-j94Fo

I've been looking for current info on that documentary about Jay. Is it still being made??? Does anyone know??

bobby said...

Just catching up, Great post Venus. Thank you.

Venus said...

Katie, that youtube video was really nice, I didn't like the music tho!

Carol, I do remember Way Bandy, but I don't think he did Cami's makeup then.

I can assure you all that the documentary will be seen by us!!

Bobby--thanks!!

katie8753 said...

Venus I didn't like the music either. It didn't fit the theme. Plus it was boring.

Venus do you know when the documentary will air??

katie8753 said...

Hi Bobby!! :)

Venus said...

No news on when it'll air or any other details, but it is coming.

katie8753 said...

Okay thanks Venus. Please keep us informed. I sure don't want to miss it! :)

Venus said...

Trust me, I'll make an announcement! I do NOT want to miss it either!

katie8753 said...

Thanks!!! :)

Donna Nelson said...

Cami is pretty but in no way comes close to Sharon.

Venus said...

I think Cami's gorgeous, but in a different way. She's really aged well too.

I remember seeing this movie several times when I was little. I LOVED it. My Barbie dolls were my gnomes and I could play like that for hours!

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Bruins VS Blackhawks Game 4 - RIGHT NOW!!

The Bruins currently lead the Stanley Cup series 2 games to 1.
A win tonight, almost guarantees the Cup!
On the other hand... a loss tonight would tie the series (again), and put Boston back to square one.

BIG GAME!

GO B's!!!

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Katie,

Hold my calls. LOL

Doc Sierra said...

OK Mr Skynyrd, I'm going to be flipping back and forth from the hockey game to the A's/Rangers game. Even though I think Chicago has the cool sweaters I'm going to root for Boston......

katie8753 said...

Lynyrd, LOL!

"I'm sorry Lynyrd's not in...may I take a message?"

Go Bruins!!

katie8753 said...

Hi Donna! Welcome to the blog!

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Blackhawks just scored...

Balls.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

DOC!!

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

BOSTON SCORES!

Tie Game - 1-1

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

I can only watch half the game tonight.

Busy day tomorrow....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

I just got an anonymous email.
It reads:

"I get Howard Stern on demand and he had the Real Thorson guy on who was the lover of Liberace (Matt Dillon portrays him in that new movie).

He has been in jail a couple times and says he was next to Manson.

Charlie came up twice during conversation although no real detail.

He also claims he was the key witness in the Wonderland murders which he called the Laurel Canyon Murders ..."

katie8753 said...

He has been in jail a couple times and says he was next to Manson.

What does that mean? Next to Manson in the lunch line? I wouldn't think that some guy that got picked up for some misdemeanor would end up next to Manson in a jail cell...

katie8753 said...

Manson's not in jail...he's in prison....Big difference.

CarolMR said...

James Gandolfini has died in Italy at the age of 51. RIP, T.
Jay's nephew, Anthony DiMaria, was on several episodes of "The Sopranos."

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Excuse me Carol.
Could we please stay on-topic?

Thanks.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

LOL!

I'm just bustin' ya! LOL

CarolMR said...

I got scared for a minute, Lynyrd! I tried to tie it in with Jay's nephew!

katie8753 said...

Carol I just saw that about Gandolfini on HLN. That's so sad....

katie8753 said...

He was in that movie "Fallen" with Denzel Washington. What a great actor!

CarolMR said...

I agree, Katie, he was a great actor. And he created an iconic character in Tony Soprano.

katie8753 said...

Yes Carol, Tony Soprano will always be remembered. 51 years old. Way too young to die....

Sigh.

katie8753 said...

BTW, the 3-Hole Wonder movie will be on Saturday at 7pm Central on Lifetime, if anyone's interested.

Lights out...Night y'all....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

The Blackhawks won by a goal in overtime.

The series is now tie 2-2...

Arggh! LOL

Doc Sierra said...

3 out of 4 games went to overtime. What an exciting series so far.

Doc Sierra said...

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

The Blackhawks won by a goal in overtime.

The series is now tie 2-2...
-------------------------------
These two teams seem to be matched up pretty well. I'd like to see it go seven games......

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Hi Doc.

One of the sportscasters last night was saying that, if these two teams played 100 games (against each other), they'd each win 50.

Hypothetically-speaking of course...

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

All-women jury chosen for George Zimmerman's trial

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A jury of six women, five of them white and the other a minority, was picked Thursday to decide the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who says he shot an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, in self-defense.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys chose the panel of six jurors after almost two weeks of jury selection. In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases, when the death penalty is being considered.

The six jurors were culled from a pool of 40 jury candidates who made it into a second round of jury questioning.

Doc Sierra said...

Hi Lynyrd. Yeah, I've heard them say that a few times and from what I've seen they're probably right. I don't know much about hockey but I'm into it this year. In the early 80's when I was stationed at MCAS El Toro in southern California I went to a few LA Kings games. A lot of fun. Next year I'm going to watch as much as I can and learn the game and the rules. Man, what an exciting sport!

Doc Sierra said...

It's my opinion that if NBC didn't play edited recordings of the 911 call and stir up the race card Zimmerman wouldn't even be prosecuted. The power of dishonest media never ceases to amaze me.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Hi Doc.

I don't have a problem with Martin's death being investigated.
In fact, it should be.
As a society, we cannot allow folks to die, without proper investigation.

I also don't have a problem with Zimmerman standing trial for the incident.
Hopefully the trial will be fair, and the truth will come to light.

If Zimmerman is innocent... I hope he walks.
If Zimmerman is found guilty of irresponsible conduct... I hope he's sentenced accordingly.

The only thing I had a personal issue with... is when, the media kept describing Martin's death as a "white on black crime".
I felt that synopsis was totally unnecessary.
That type of presentation only serves to fuel racial tensions needlessly.
It really shouldn't matter what color the perpetrator's (or the victim's) skin is... a crime, is a crime.

Furthermore...
I've seen photos of Zimmerman, and I've read his background.
I don't consider him caucasian.
I consider him Hispanic/Latino... or "mixed race" at best.

Of course... a "mixed race on black crime" would not garner the same media attention as a "white on black crime".
Hence... Zimmerman suddenly became 100% caucasian.

Doc Sierra said...

Lynyrd, I couldn't agree more. The media has made it to where Zimmerman won't likely get a fair trial. If he's guilty I hope he goes away for a long time. If he properly adhered to the stand your ground law I hope he walks. If he walks you can bet there's going to rioting in the streets......

katie8753 said...

I think that if the shooting victim had been a white supremest, we'd never heard of George Zimmerman.

THAT'S JUST MY OPINION. LOL And I don't dare WHAT newcomer doesn't like it that I say "Just my Opinion".

Hey Doc do you remember Ray McKigney?

Spurs Vs. Heat....

Doc Sierra said...

Poor Ray. He wasn't master of his domain......

Doc Sierra said...

Bummer for San Antonio. For what it's worth they had a good year and won the Western Conference......

katie8753 said...

Yes Doc it's very disappointing, but I figured it was a long shot for the Spurs to win. Game 7 usually goes to the home team....

katie8753 said...

The 3-Hole Wonder movie starts in 10 minutes. Got the popcorn poppin' and the butter meltin'. LOL.

Doc Sierra said...

Oh Skynyrd, where's Eddie Lebec when we need him?

katie8753 said...

Doc it's been proven that Carla's not a jinx. At least, not on Eddie. LOL.

Doc Sierra said...

Katie, remember when Eddie got cut by the Bruins and he told Carla that he was going to be a Penguin? Carla said something like 'alright, we're moving to Pittsburgh' and Eddie had to tell her that he was going to be a Penguin in the Ice Capades....

katie8753 said...

Doc, I'm a Cheers fan from the year it first started (although I got really tired of Diane), but the only thing I remember about that episode is Frasier giving a workshop on fear of flying.

Sorry...the card says "Moops". LOL.

katie8753 said...

One of my favorite episodes of Cheers was the one where they showed outside shots of Diane's apartment and she was talking about watching the Philharmonic or Ballet dancing or something.

Then they cut to the outside shot of Sam's apartment and you could hear these slapping sounds and he said "Oh yeah, this is the one where they're plumbers. I LOVE this one". HA HA HA.

Loved Sam! :)

beauders said...

Katie I just saw the arias movie. I didn't know he called her a three hole wonder. I understand he was conflicted over his religion and all but the guy was a jerk. I have members of the Mormon faith in my family and they were all virgins, including the guys, until their wedding night. I doubt if any of them ever kissed with mouth open let alone with tongues. I remember you watched as the world turns and it was nice to see jesse lee soffer working again. but as much of a jerk travis was he certainly did not deserve to die.

katie8753 said...

And now a word from our sponsor....and even that newcomer can't Elmer Fudd it.. HA HA HA.

....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcJFdCmN98s&list=FLqttN9wowY6_z6UdodSmpvQ&index=5

katie8753 said...

Beauders I love you, and I'll answer you tomorrow.

I don't know much about the Mormons, but Jodi wasn't one. She converted for Travis, but she wasn't one, and she enticed him into all kinds of sex.

In the end, it doesn't matter if you're mormon, christian, devil or nothing.

Nobody deserves to die like Travis did.....

katie8753 said...

I did watch As The World Turns, and I'm glad you remembered that! I enjoyed watching Jesse Lee Soffer.

katie8753 said...

I hate this copy/paste crap.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z1Krfww5eE&list=FLqttN9wowY6_z6UdodSmpvQ

Venus said...

I used to basbysit for a Mormon fmaily and I think Beauders is totally right. They didn't have Cola drinks in their house because of the caffeine so when I babysat, I drank 7-up at their house.

Travis (or anyone else) didn't deserve to die in that way, but the guy was no saint either. He clearly used her. That's not an excuse for her to do what she did, of course. She should've just walked away.

This Cami thread certainly got derailed! (sports, Seinfeld, Cheers, Arias....did I miss anything?) LOL

katie8753 said...

Hi Venus. I know the Mormons have a strict venue of "dont's" and one of them is having sex before marriage. I think most religions have that same tenet. And most people ignore it.

But Jodi knew his Achilles heel, and offered herself up to him 24/7. Like a carrot to a donkey. I don't know a whole lot of men who could resist some girl shaking her butt in his face and saying "come and get it". LOL.

He shouldn't have engaged in sex with her, and he made a mistake. In fact, it was the last one he ever made....

katie8753 said...

Getting back on track Venus, I was thinking about Sharon's career and I think that Martin Ransohoff pretty much derailed her career by not letting her star in certain projects, such as Petticoat Junction. I think he said she was "too pretty" and he was "saving her for something special".

I think that if she had starred as Billy Jo, she would have been on the rise a whole lot sooner. Maybe she wouldn't have married Polanski and would have ended up differently, who knows?

He had her play that secretary on The Beverly Hillbillies wearing a black wig and basically was keeping her under a bushel.

Venus said...

I know what you mean about the Arias case, Katie. She was Eve tempting him with the apple.

Yes, with Sharon, who knows what might've happened? Wasn't she let go from "Petticoat Junction" because word got out about her topless photos? I seem to remember reading that.

Doc Sierra said...

My best buddy when I was stationed at MCAS El Toro was Mormon. He wouldn't drink coffee or caffeinated sodas. He was close to 30 and was a virgin. He even wore some kind of silk looking undershirt under his uniform that he called his garment. He said it was a requirement to wear it in the Mormon religion. When he went to dinner with my wife and me and we ordered drinks he ordered a pina colada but without the rum. He did his missionary work in Australia and he lives there now and we still keep in touch. He was as straight as an arrow but had a great sense of humor and we had a lot of fun times. Plus, I always had a designated driver.......

katie8753 said...

Venus I read that Martin advised her against Petticoat Junction. I didn't know anything about a topless photo. That doesn't mean it didn't happen. LOL.

It's like he was trying to hide her and save her for something. Maybe for himself?? My bad....

katie8753 said...

Doc, I'm guessing your friend never ran into Jodi Arias. HA HA.

It's funny that in all my years of living, I've never met anyone who was Mormon. I know they live here because there's an LDS temple here somewhere. I guess there's more of them in Arizona....

There was a weird, mutated off-shoot of the Mormon church that moved to El Dorado, Texas, I think from Arizona or Utah. Their hippy cult leader was Warren Jeffs. They called themselves Yearning For Zion, and they practiced polygamy and child marriage.

Jeffs was arrested and found guilty of child molestation and is serving a life prison term in a Texas prison. Not sure which one.

I think they figured out that Texas might not be the best place for child molesting cults....

Hi Katie, what a trip. Just last night I watched a documentary on Warren Jeffs. He is one sick and twisted dude.....

Doc Sierra said...

OK Skynyrd, Tonight Boston has a chance to even the series. The Oakland A's aren't playing tonight so I won't be flipping back and forth. Boston will have my undivided attention and because of that they have an excellent chance. That's MY contribution.

Doc, in Jeff's trial, he pulled some strange "Charlie-esque" moves. He asked to defend himself, and the Judge said okay. Then he asked for a continuance and the Judge said no...let's get on with it.

He tried to intimidate witnesses and that didn't work. Then at the end of the trial, he told the court that he was going to tell the jury that if they convicted him, God would kill them all slowly and God would bestow a crippling disease on the Judge.

The Judge then told Jeffs that he would NOT be telling the jury that, and that she had already had polio. LOL.

When closing arguments came around, the Judge told Jeffs he had 15 minutes to talk. He just looked at the floor. The Judge kept counting off the minutes.

"You have 10 minutes left...9 minutes left", etc. He never said a word.

After Jeffs went to prison he kept writing letters to his minions at the Yearning for Zion Ranch to carry out killings on certain judges.

The guy is a whack job!!!

THANKS DOC!

Katie, Sharon posed for some topless photos circa 1961. They were taken by Bert Stern who also took photos of Marilyn Monroe. I think he did the last famous photo shoot of Marilyn (the one that Lindsay Lohan tried to duplicate. (he took her photos too)

katie8753 said...

Thanks Venus! I hope those photos didn't interfere with her career.

Sharon wasn't a Shakespearean thespian, but she wasn't bad. I think with a lot more experience and the right guidance, she could have been a really good actress.

Venus said...

I agree, Katie. Of course, maybe she would've wound up as many other 60's actresses did--making appearances on 70's TV shows such as "Fantasy island."

katie8753 said...

HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

katie8753 said...

Or "The Love Boat". LOL.

Venus said...

How could I forget that one?! When I think of all the hours I spent watching those shows.....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

De Plane... De Plane...

LMFAO!

Venus said...

Welcome to Fantasy Island, I am your host....

"Tattoo"

What a stupid F#cking name.

It wasn't bad enough, that Hervé Villechaize was born "vertically challenged"... they had to strap him with the stupidest name in television history, to boot. LOL
So much for "political correctness".

Talk about insulting...
No wonder he killed himself.

I wish I was a fly on the wall, when the producers chose THAT character name...

They shoulda just called him "the fucking midget dude" and got it over with, for cripes sakes... LOL!

I can guarantee you one thing... Ricardo Montalbán wasn't gonna accept a stupid name like "Tattoo".
He woulda told them to shove it.
He was "Mr. Roarke".

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

The Love Boat. LMAO

I always wanted to bang the shit outta Julie. LOL

Ship Ahoy! LMAO!

Doc Sierra said...

I'm really hoping there is a game seven. Man, this is on exciting series.

Doc Sierra said...

What I do miss is Charo on Hollywood Squares. You always knew which washed up celebrities were on the bubble because they would always be center bottom...... Coochie coochie coochie.....

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

BRUINS SCORE!!!!

7 MINUTES LEFT... BRUINS AHEAD 2-1!

katie8753 said...

Hollywood Squares. HA HA.

That was like the elephant graveyard for used up celebs. I remember "Uncle Arthur" was always on there.

The only last stop after that was Password or The Gong Show. LOL.

GO BRUINS!!! :)

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

THE AGONY OF DEFEAT!

Doc Sierra said...

Oh well, they gave it a good run....

Doc Sierra said...

Katie, don't forget the $20,000 Pyramid.....

katie8753 said...

Sorry the Bruins lost. Sob. I know how disappointing that came be.

Doc I remember the $20,000 Pyramid. Remember the $100,000 Pyramid? What a labyrinth of who used to be who.

The only other game show I can think of that was so low, even on the scabbard of game shows, was The Newlywed Game, hosted by Bill Eubanks.

Bill was the incarnate of Conway Twitty with that huge forehead and big hair.

"When was the first time you made whooppie?" HA HA.

Doc Sierra said...

I remember one episode of the Newlywed Game when Bob Eubanks asked "where was the most exotic place you've ever made whoopie?". One contestant said "in da butt".....

katie8753 said...

Whoaaa!!! Another 3-Hole Wonder! HA HA.

I thought it was Bill Eubanks. It is Bob Eubanks.

Well, back to the drawing board...

Well, the big hand is on the 25, LOL

Night!!! :)

Doc Sierra said...

G'night Katie. I won't be able to sleep because of that Kenny Rogers chicken supernova.

katie8753 said...

Doc, you crack me up.

"I'm on no sleep, no sleep!. You don't know what it's like in there, all night long things are creaking and cracking. And that red light is burning my brain!"

Sweet dreams! :)
