Aarti just recently won the special edition of Chopped with her fellow The Next Food Network Stars alumi to compete for charity. I was rooting for Aarti and thrilled that she won! She was on before but was chopped off after round 2 (entree round).
I know that Jayne Mansfield was pretty unch under Marilyn Monroe's shadow. They are pretty similiar in looks, style, bleaching their hair, being sex symbols...but there were differences. Jayne had five children while Marilyn didn't (although she did wanted them; she even got pregnant a couple of times but she miscarried), Jayne also came to work and knew her lines while Marilyn would get the studio heads fed up by being way late and messing up constantly, especially near the end of her life. I'm sure there's more but those were off the top of my head. And besides, this isn't a contest. At least for me. I love them both and I do see them as two different ladies with similiar paths. And besides, Marilyn wasn't the original...that title belongs to Jean Harlow.
Poor Tony Cimber. He was about a year and a half when his mother Jayne Mansfield died. Do you remember anything when you were a year old? I don't. His big sister Mariska was 3 years old and her own memories are sketchy/blurry. I remember from seeing a Jayne documentary that his father Matt remarried (I've heard twice over, but anyway) and one of the wives adopted Tony as her own. It's nice to know that Jayne's kids were all well looked after after their mother's death. Jayne Marie had her father's family, the Hargitay children had Mickey and his second wife/widow Ellen, and Tony had his stepmother as well as all the children had their grandmother Vera too.
Barbara Eden was pregnant with her son Matthew during the first season of "I Dream of Jeannie" and in order to hide her growing belly, the wardrobe department put on an extra scraf to cover. Barbara always described herself as a walking tent.
