A new book has just been published called JOE AND MARILYN: LEGENDS IN LOVE by #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author C. DAVID HEYMANN. [Atria/Emily Bestler books, a division of Simon & Schuster; (July 1, 2014)] [ISBN: 1439191778] [ISBN-13: 978-1439191774]

There are many many fascinating new revelations on JEANNE CARMEN and MARILYN MONROE in this new book. But the most amazing story is the new revelation of MARILYN and JEANNE dancing that night away at an early L.A. GAY DISCO as told to author C. DAVID HEYMANN by MARILYN’s personal masseuse and good friend RALPH ROBERTS.

Page 343
In the late afternoon of August 1, MARILYN called RALPH ROBERTS and asked him to take her to LARGO, a Los Angeles nightspot with a strip club on one side of the establishment and a gay bar on the other. “Largo was a bit sleazy,” said ROBERTS, “but it was unique in that it catered to both heterosexuals and gays. You had a lot of straight men watching the young female strippers on the club side, and a whole gay crowd—men and women—packed into an adjacent bar. The bar had a jukebox and a small dance floor. The men danced with men, the women with women. A soundproof wall separated the bar from the strip club.

“I picked up MARILYN at her house and learned that JEANNE CARMEN would be joining us. MARILYN gave me a drink and poured herself on as well. We stepped outside into the gardens, which was illuminated by a floodlight. She told me she’d been to a shop on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood., where she’d acquired a few items of furniture and a wall hanging depicting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. From her local nursery she’d also purchased three more citrus trees and a half dozen rose bushes that were supposed to be delivered on August 4. I found this a bit odd in light of the fact that she kept telling me she intended to leave Los Angeles and move back to New York.”

By this time, JEANNE CARMEN had arrived, and the three of them set off for LARGO. “En route,” continued ROBERTS, “JEANNE started talking about ROBERT KENNEDY, which I didn’t think was a great idea. She said BOBBY and MARILYN had frequently engaged in phone sex. ‘Can’t you just see the attorney general jerking his chain while MARILYN talked him through the sex act?” To change the subject, I asked MARILYN about JOE DIMAGGIO. She said he and his brothers Vince and Dom had agreed to participate in an Old Timers’ charity baseball game in San Francisco on August 4 and that he’d be joining her again in Los Angeles a day later. To which JEANNE said, “Yeah, but he bugged your phone just like the rest of them.’ ‘If that’s true,’ responded MARILYN, ‘it’s because he wants to protect me. Listen, if it weren’t for JOE, I’d probably have killed myself years ago.’”

Those were MARILYN’s last coherent words that evening. When they reached Largo, MARILYN—in her usual disguise—headed straight for the bar, ordered three bottles of champagne, handed one each to RALPH and JEANNE, chugalugged the third herself, ordered another, grabbed JEANNE’s hand, and hit the dance floor.

“I spent the better part of the night,” said ROBERTS, “standing at the bar, declining offers to dance from a variety of men in leather and chains. When I drove MARILYN home at three in the morning, her eyes were vacant. She looked like a zombie. She was drunk and drugged. The sight of her in that woeful state, as she wobbled out of the car and into her house, saddened and haunted me. After that night, we spoke on the phone once or twice, but I never saw MARILYN again.”

Marilyn & Diana: Sex, Lies & Murder! What They Knew! Why They Died!

August 10, 2014

This explosive new special report — just published in a special edition magazine by the National Enquirer — blows the lid off the evil web of lies that have surrounded the deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana for decades.

Both were MURDERED – and The ENQUIRER has uncovered top-secret official documents, diaries and tapes that tell you why!

MONROE’S LITTLE RED BOOK: SHE WROTE IT ALL DOWN: Mobsters, gay trysts & orgies with the Kennedy’s

Some experts on the screen siren’s life and death have suggested [Chicago Mob Boss Sam] Giancana — or even FBI director J. Edgar Hoover — wanted Monroe’s ledger to gain political influence. They’ve suggested that shadowy power players snatched the journal after Monroe’s death or even killed her for it!

Says biographer Darwin Porter, one of Monroe’s confidantes: “Giancana had the motive to kill her — she was threatening to blow the lid off his operations,” especially in Hollywood where his gang had a lucrative loan sharking and crooked gambling operation. She also knew all about Sinatra’s association with the Mob.

Certainly, the Kennedy clan had the most to lose if Marilyn opened her mouth. Both JFK and Bobby Kennedy were bedding the blonde bombshell and were to officials in the U.S. government.

While JFK was said to be very careful about engaging in pillow talk with his bedmates, Monroe did manage to pick up tidbits of political gossip and inside information, the friend added.

The president’s curvy mistress found most of the talk “boring” but did write down his snappy comments about other world leaders, which would have proved very embarrassing if made public.

“Marilyn told me her diary was her closest friend and constant companion,” her pal said. “She’d write in her book every day – and sometimes more than once. She’d leave it lying around her house like it was nothing.”

Another friend JEANNE CARMEN, revealed she witnessed RFK waiting for the superstar to get dressed when he “saw a little red book on the coffee table, looked through it and seemed to get upset.”

Says Carmen, “When Marilyn came out of her room he asked, “What’s this?” She said, “That’s my diary.” And he said “Get rid of it!”

And yet another pal said said the actress told him the diary was her “insurance policy.”

Investigators claim desperate Monroe tried to play her trump card when Bobby threatened to break off their affair a few weeks before she died. She told him she’d tell-all at a press conference – and back it up by producing her diary, which also noted times and places of ALL her romantic rendezvous.

================================
From Brandon James’ author bio at Amazon.com: “Brandon James is a graduate of the world famous USC School of Cinema Television. He has written for magazines such as Femme Fatales, Collecting Hollywood, Classic Images and The Dark Side. He also worked as a consultant on E! Entertainment Television’s TV biography Jeanne Carmen: Queen of the B-Movies fir their award-winning series The E! True Hollywood Story. In addition, Brandon has recently finished a screenplay based on Jeanne Carmen’s amazing life story. Brandon James grew up in Newport Beach, California…

Tim P. received the following much-appreciated message from Brandon via IM on Facebook on April 13, 2014

Hi Tim,

I just received my copy of Monster #2 with THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS on the cover. Great Article!!! Jeanne Carmen was my Mom, so I have a special connection to TMOPB. I am always amazed at how much attention this film still gets and how many people know of it, especially considering the fact that I never saw the film or was even sure it really existed until I got of college and tracked it down. LOL

Anway, great job with the article and bringing all the collateral interest up to date by mentioning the ANGRY SAMOANS’ album and the FLIPPER episode and even the recent homage THE REDEMPTION OF THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS, and even mentioning the book I wrote about my Mom, JEANNE CARMEN: MY WILD WILD LIFE AS A NEW YORK PIN UP QUEEN, TRICK SHOT GOLFER and HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS.

However, there is another piece of recent news on TMOPB i think you would like to know about. Last year, around Halloween a new commercial was released for American Standard Heating and Air that featured a clip of my Mom in THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS within the commercial. The spot is still on the air in select markets across the country. It turned out really good. Here is the YouTube link:

Anyway, thought I would drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoyed the magazine.

I can’t believe TMOPB has never officialy been released on DVD. If you look at eBay, there are bootleg DVD’s of the film that sell almost every day.

Feel free to contact me if you ever need any photos or info on my Mom!

cheers,
BRANDON JAMES

THE MOMSTER [sic!] OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS?

Okay, excuse the bad pun—absolutely no disrespect intended. I assure you!—but our sincere thanks go out to mine and Tim’s mutual Facebook friend Brandon James (son and biographer of THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS’ late leading lady, actress and all-around bodacious glamor gal Jeanne Carmen) for his recent complimentary letter about our ‘zine and for kindly taking the time and effort to email MONSTER! some fabulous visual materials from the movie. Especially precious to us is the vintage MOPB-related newspaper clip reprinted hereabouts (see: “Nightmare for Horror Star – Mob Rips Her $300 Dress!) As an added bonus, Brandon was even nice enough to provide us with a high-quality scan of the original photograph which ran with said news item. Below, with his permission, we reprint his combined emails, dated May 15-16,2014:

Hi Steve,

I found it! Here is the photo with the torn dress.

Yes, this is a real photo and the incident reported in the paper is true. A horde of pre-pubescent and teenage boys rushed her and ripped her dress and pinched her butt and boobs. LOL

Ok.. the Monster of Piedras Blancas has been a fascinating strange odyssey for me. It starred my Mom JEANNE CARMEN. But I never saw the movie or was even sure it existed until I got out of college and finally tracked down a grainy VHS copy of it.

My Mom left Hollywood after Marilyn Monroe was killed and she relocated to a tiny out of the way town called Scottsdale, Arizona. Mom never really talked about her past life. I remember once, when I was in elementary school, my Mom mentioned that she had been in some Hollywood movies and asked her for a name of one of them and she said The Monster of Piedras Blancas. I had never seen or heard of it.. but.. I went with it and I mentioned it to some kids on the playground and one kid went home and told his cow poop stained cowboy boot wearing father who fancied himself an amateur film historian. the kid’s dad said he had never heard of a movie called The Monster of Piedras Blancas and therefore it must not be true and I must have made it up.. so I got jumped the next day at school and given a good work over for “making up The Monster of Piedras Blancas.” I wasn’t stupid so I decided to drop it and never mentioned The Monster of Piedras Blancas again while in school in Arizona.

Then, a few years later, after Sam Giancana was killed in outside Chicago, my Mom decided to move back to California. She still didn’t feel totally safe going back to Hollywood so she moved to a small little beach town called Newport Beach about an hours drive south of Los Angeles. That is where I went high school. it was a town filled with rich kids and surfer dudes. LOL Again, any time I dared mention a movie called The Monster of Piedras Blancas I was greeted with with dumbfounded looks, smirks and guffaws at such a funny name for a movie. At the time, the kids in my high school seemed to think Piedras Blancas was some kind of a made up name. No one seemed to realize it was just two spanish words that meant white rocks in english. LOL Again, I just dropped it and never mentioned it again through my high school years.

Then, after high school, in the mid 80’s I was at a big record store in Costa Mesa called The Music Market. it was huge and they specialized in used vinyl records. So one day I was there with my Mom and we were flipping through the records and I came across a punk album called by the ANGRY SAMOANS called Back From Samoa. the album cover had a really creepy photo of a Monster holding a severed head so i pulled it out and I said “Hey Mom, check this out” and I started laughing. She immediately said “Oh my God, that’s the monster from my movie.” So i said “What?” and she said “Yeah, that’s the Monster of Piedras Blancas.” That was the first image I ever saw from MOPB. I was still a little incredulous so I looked over the album front and back looking for a photo credit identifying the image. There was none. I had such a hard time over the years with this movie that I wanted a little more proof so we went up to the young guy working behind the counter who looked and sounded like Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I asked the guy “Is the image on this album from a movie called The Monster of Piedras Blancas.” The guy looked at me and my Mom with and started to guffaw and with a smirk he said “The Monster of what?.. are you guys fucking with me?” Getting the same reaction I had always gotten I decided to drop it. So then I kind of wanted to buy the album anyway so I asked “Can you tell me about this band?” and the guy said “That’s a bunch of crap. You don’t want to buy that.” then he said if i wanted to hear some great punk music I should buy some albums from a local punk band called the “BUTTHOLE SURFERS.” LOL this time my Mom and I laughed and we decided to pass on the suggestion and I passed on The Angry Samoan album. As we were leaving, I said, “You see Mom, that’s the reaction i always get.” She just shrugged and said “Sorry, but that was the Monster from my movie.” At the time, my Mom had a really cool little red convertible Mercedes Benz and as we drove away we saw the record clerk standing out in front of the store with his hands on his hips and staring at us with a silly grin on his face. We just waved and he just stood there staring until we pulled out of the parking lot.

So a few years later, I was attending USC Film School in Los Angeles and I still didn’t mention The Monster of Piedras Blancas to anyone because I was afraid of the reaction. And.. as it turned out.. a fan magazine called FILMFAX did a cover story on The Monster of Piedras Blancas while i was sitting in class in film school a couple miles away and I missed it. A few years later when I stumbled upon the magazine they mentioned that Jeanne Carmen was not interviewed because no one knew what had become of her. LOL

Then a short time later, my Mom went to a celebrity party in Los Angeles, and she went with her old friend Mamie Van Doren who she had starred with in Untamed Youth. Mamie also lived in Newport Beach at the time. Mamie wanted to look cool driving up to the house in Beverly Hills so my Mom let her drive her Mercedes. Mamie was driving, her husband Tom was in the passenger seat and my Mom was in the back seat. As they pulled up a fan broke out from the crowd and started running alongside the car. Mamie assumed the guy was a fan of hers and she parked and got out expecting to sign an autograph.. but instead… the guy said looked at my Mom as she got out and said “Miss Carmen, I’m a big fan of The Monster of Piedras Blancas” and I would be honored if you would sign some of these ” and he handed her some photo stills from MOPB. Mamie was stunned and she said to her husband “Tom, does she know him?” And Tom said, “I don’t think so.” Mamie was astounded and never really got over it because up until then, Mamie had always considered herself the BIG STAR and my Mom the little star. LOL

My Mom came home that night and told me what happened and that’s when I went all out and did a lot of tedious research and tracked down the grainy copy of MOPB and all her other movies and thousands of photo’s and magazine covers. And it took off from there. Ultimately, the E! Channel did a TV bio on my Mom called Jeanne Carmen: Queen of the B-Movies and the show opens with the MOPB crashing through the door in her apartment and scaring her as she lets out a scream.

and now, all these years later, the MOPB is being featured in a national commercial in which a couple that enjoys vintage pinup and monster movies has a date night at their house and they watch an old monster movie called The Monster of Piedras Blancas on TV. LOL

What a strange, fascinating journey, How weird!…. no… How cool is that.

Ok. I have to fit in one more piece of trivia that i think is fascinating about the actual shooting of MOPB. In the climactic scene in the lighthouse stairwell, the MOPB ascends the stairs and then slams his shoulder against the door from the inside the stairwell. In the movie, the MOPB is very lethargic at this point and can barely raise his arms as it pushes on the door with it’s shoulder. Then they cut to the townfolks down below and then they cut back to the outside of the lighthouse and the MOPB suddenly crashes through the door and screams and has his arms above his head. The MOPB is suddenly infused with energy and is jumping around like he just had a shot of adrenaline.

the reason for all of this, my Mom told me, is that the guy in the suit, Pete Dunn became so exhausted in the suit that he almost passed out on the top of the inner stairwell. they had to stop filming and bring Pete down to the ground and take him out of the suit and revive him. Pete couldn’t do any more. He was done. The crew was on limited time shooting at the Lighthouse and they knew they would never be allowed back in if they didn’t get the shot right then. So my Mom’s press agent at the time, a guy named Joe Seide, voluneered to get in the suit. Joe was a big guy and a fighter and a guy with ties to the Mafia and real “nut” as my Mom described him. the producers had no choice, they let Joe get in the suit and he is the guy in the suit that crashed through the lighthouse door and goes out on the ledge and fights with Don Sullivan. LOL

It says PIN UP HUSTLER – JEANNE CARMEN – SEX, GOLF & MAFIA

http://www.playboy.nl/magazine-archive/december-2013.html

Here is a translation of the intro and other highlighted sections in the article.
================
Jeanne Carmen. Sex Goddess. Iconic Pin-up. Brilliant Golf Star. Queen of the B–movies, Mafia Girl and Lover of Elvis Presley. Jeanne Carmen was all that.

A Success Story of a Cunning Blonde Who Was More Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll than Marilyn Monroe.

John F Kennedy wanted nothing more than a threesome with his mistress Marilyn Monroe and her best friend Jeanne Carmen.

Carmen fled in 1953 to Hollywood, where she was soon admitted to the circle of stars who rejoiced in coke, booze and wild sex parties with all its beautiful colors.

This gave Carmen power to the many conspiracy theories that are in essence, that Marilyn was murdered by the Mafia, who wanted to discredit Bobby Kennedy, whose lives and their criminal activities he increasingly impeded.

According to Carmen’s son Brandon James, mobster Johnny Roselli told her later that he had personally killed Sam Giancana because he was secretly in love with Monroe, and he could not bear the fact that Giancana had made it look like Monroe had killed herself.

“Everything I‘ve done, I did at the right time,” Jeanne Carmen said looking back just before her death. “And it turned out fantastic.”

“But my career has gone as it ought to go. A door opened and I was suddenly a famous pin-up. I have lived like a queen. “

On December 20, 2007, the intriguing Jeanne Laverne Carmen died at 77.

It marked the end of a regal life that cries out to be filmed as a motion picture.

If you want to know all the ins and outs of the turbulent life of Jeanne Carmen then we recommend this book with the impossibly long title JEANNE CARMEN – MY WILD WILD LIFE As A New York Pin–Up Queen, Trick Shot Golfer & Hollywood Actress. Writer Brandon James, the son of Jeanne, left no detail undiscussed in this biography about the life of his mother.

The book is available at all major booksellers. Digital downloads are available on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/jeanne-carmen/id569403432?mt=11

New details on former SINATRA house where JEANNE CARMEN & MARILYN MONROE once lived

November 23, 2013

img138

Sold! The famous compound at 882 NORTH DOHENY in WEST HOLLYWOOD has sold to MAX MARTIN. The prolific music producer and songwriter bought this storied complex in 2013 for $3.72M. Some of the famous past residents of the compound have included: FRANK SINATRA, BELLA DARVI, JEANNE CARMEN, KALEF ALATON, NICKY HILTON and MARILYN MONROE (who lived here at two different periods of her life). The property was sold by actor JAMES COBURN’s first wife, Beverly.

And who is MAX MARTIN? Well… What do the Backstreet Boys, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Britney Spears all have in common? Besides being major pop stars, they all have hit songs penned and produced by one Swedish songwriter/producer by the name of Max Martin. Max Martin, also known as Martin Karl Sandberg is responsible for just about every song that you ever sang in the shower for the last ten years. His string of hits is kind of ridiculous, and includes such tracks as “Raise Your Glass” (Pink); “I Kissed a Girl” (Katy Perry); “My Life Would Suck Without You” (Kelly Clarkson); “Baby One More Time” and “Hold It Against Me” (Britney Spears); “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (Taylor Swift); “One More Night” (Maroon 5); “Dynamite” (Taio Cruz); “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” (Usher); and “Beauty and a Beat” (Justin Bieber), among many, many others. He’s also penned tracks for Christina Aguilera, Ace of Base, Cher, and Avril Lavigne. He’s won just about every songwriting award that one can receive, including ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year Award in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2011, 2012, and 2013. He’s been consistently successful, and as the pop music scene has changed, so has he. Over the years, he has shifted his sound from bubble gum pop, to heavier and more rock-inflected, and the result is that his tracks are in almost constant rotation on the radio. This has made him quite wealthy, and he recently purchased a Hollywood compound with a long history, and a surprisingly short price tag.

And for more details on the storied compound from the days when pin up girl JEANNE CARMEN and MARILYN MONROE lived there as next door neighbors, read this fascinating excerpt by GEORGE JACOBS who was FRANK SINATRA’S long time butler and personal valet during the legendary RAT PACK years. Jacobs has provided a firsthand eyewitness account of Pin Up Girl JEANNE CARMEN’s relationship with FRANK SINATRA and MARILYN MONROE in his autobiography MR. S: MY LIFE WITH FRANK SINATRA
In the book, JACOBS states “JEANNE CARMEN was a classic blonde starlet and pinup girl with one of the most perfect figures in Hollywood.”

CARMEN “also had an unusual skill, as a trick-shot golfer.”

SINATRA “really liked JEANNE, whom he dated both when he was down, and after he was up again.”

JACOBS also states that FRANK SINATRA set him up with an apartment in the early sixties along with JEANNE CARMEN and MARILYN MONROE in a building owned by SINATRA at 882 North Doheny Drive in West Hollywood. The building was knicknamed “THE SINATRA ARMS” because SINATRA used the complex as a safehouse for his girlfriends and cronies.

JACOBS specifically states that the people living in the complex in the early sixties “in addition to MARILYN and me” was SINATRA’s “longtime on-off bedmate JEANNE CARMEN, who became MARILYN’s best girlfriend.”
GEORGE JACOBS’ testimony is monumental because it is an eyewitness validation of CARMEN’s claims and directly contradicts those who have tried to taint CARMEN’s relationship with MONROE.

Revealed: Marilyn Monroe called Jackie Kennedy to confess to affair with ‘drug addict’ JFK

August 11, 2013

A new book has just been published called THESE FEW PRECIOUS DAYS – THE FINAL YEAR OF JACK WITH JACKIE by #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON. [Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster; (2013)] [ISBN: 978-1-4767-3232-9]

MARILYN MONROE’S friend, pin up girl JEANNE CARMEN is referenced in the book on page 168:
=================
One of Crosby’s other guests, California Democrat Philip Watson, inadvertently wandered into a bungalow on the property and came across JFK “wearing a turtleneck sweater” and a soused Marilyn “dressed in kind of a robe thing. It was obvious they were intimate,” Watson said, “that they were staying together for the night.”

Marilyn’s condition that night was typical. She had always grappled with severe psychiatric and emotional problems, made worse in recent years by alcohol and prescription drug abuse. At thirty-six, she realized her sex-symbol days were numbered and began to see a new role for herself: as the second wife of the president. Confiding the most intimate details of the affair to her friend Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn was convinced JFK was about to leave Jackie for her. “Can’t you just see me,” she asked Carmen, “as First Lady?”

Jackie reported back to Finnerty that relations between the president and the first lady had improved significantly — although not enough to stop Jack’s skirt-chasing. If nothing else, from this point on Jackie had no reason to blame herself for her husband’s sexual compulsions.

And she was right to fear Marilyn Monroe. The actress had always grappled with severe psychiatric and emotional problems, made worse by alcohol and prescription drug abuse. At thirty-six, she realized her sex symbol days were numbered and began to see a new role for herself: as the second wife of the president. Confiding the most intimate details of the affair to her friend Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn was convinced JFK was about to leave Jackie for her. “Can’t you just see me,” she asked Carmen, “as first lady?

Marilyn Monroe telephoned Jackie Kennedy to confess to having an affair with her husband, only to be told: “that’s great, I’ll move out and you have all the problems” .

The revelations are disclosed in a new book detailing the marital tensions between John F Kennedy and the first lady during the final year of the assassinated President’s life.

In These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie, author Christopher Andersen describes how the first lady normally turned a blind eye to JFK’s cheating, but his relationship with Monroe ‘seemed to bother her the most’ .

According to the book, Monroe fully believed the President was going to leave his wife and marry her, reportedly telling her friend Jeanne Carmen “Can’t you just see me as first lady?”

JFK book: Marilyn Monroe confessed to affair, Jackie replied ‘great, I’ll move out, you have all the problems’

Former President John F. Kennedy’s wife Jackie knew about his affair with movie icon Marilyn Monroe and even spoke with Monroe about it on the phone, a new tell-all book that features some of John and Jackie’s closest friends, relatives and associates as on-the-record sources reveals

Marilyn Monroe allegedly called Jackie Kennedy, the wife of John F Kennedy and the first lady during his tenure as President of the United States, to confess that she’d had an affair with JFK.

Monroe also apparently set her sights on becoming the President’s second wife, and even called Mrs Kennedy at the White House to make her brazen declaration. When Jackie heard what Monroe had to say, she simply responded, “Marilyn, you’ll marry Jack, that’s great.

And you’ll move into the White House and you’ll assume the responsibilities of first lady, and I’ll move out and you’ll have all the problems.” This revelation is made in Christopher Andersen’s new book, These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie. The piece claims that Jackie “knew everything” about her husband’s philandering, however she simply decided to ignore his numerous indiscretions.

However, Marilyn’s relationship with JFK bothered Jackie the most, which was made even worse because of Monroe’s obvious ambitions to replace her as Kennedy’s wife. Jeanne Carmen, a friend of Marilyn’s, admitted that Monroe was convinced that JFK was set to leave Jackie for her.

However, she admits that these thoughts were probably exacerbated by her emotional and psychiatric problems, which became worse and worse because of her constant drinking and drug taking. Carmen added that Marilyn used to envision herself as the first lady. Peter Lawford, a member of the infamous Rat Pack, claimed that Marilyn made the phone call to Jackie, and he also added that she’d stated he’d leave his entire family for her too.

The book also stated that despite the fact that Jackie Kennedy was furious with her husband’s adultery, she was willing to look the other way as long as he didn’t embarrass her in public. However, she complained about JFK’s love-making to Dr Frank Finnerty, noting, “he just goes too fast and falls asleep,” as well as confessing that she believed it was her own sexual inadequacies that pushed JFK into bed with other women.

Pin Up Girl JEANNE CARMEN blows up MARILYN MONROE suicide theory

Here is a transcript:

Two explosive biographies reveal all the chilling details of what really happened the night Hollywood screen siren Marilyn Monroe died.

According to the book MARILYN AT RAINBOWS END: SEX, LIES, MURDER AND THE GREAT COVER UP (BLOOD MOON) by acclaimed author and investigative journalist Darwin Porter, MARILYN MONROE died at the hands of five Mafia hit men just before the brokenhearted star planned to hold a press conference that would have shattered the lives of the KENNEDY clan and Mob boss SAM GIANCANA.

If Monroe had lived, she could have revealed her affairs with John F Kennedy and Robert F Kennedy. And she could have disclosed JFK’s ties to Giancana, says Porter.

BOBBY KENNEDY and his actor brother-in-law PETER LAWFORD visited Monroe hours before her death to try to convince her not to go public with the affairs, he says.

Later that night, Monroe was set up by JOHNNY ROSELLI, a Mob boyfriend who left her door unlocked for the five hit men, says Porter. The killers surprised the star and knocked her out with a chloroform-soaked rag. Then they stripped her naked and administered an overdose of barbiturates into her rectum with an enema laced with a deadly amount of chloral hydrate, a powerful sedative and narcotic.

“Her close friend, actress JEANNE CARMEN, told me Marilyn thought she was too big to touch. After Marilyn’s death, Roselli ordered Jeanne to get out of town. She moved to Arizona, gave up acting and worked as a waitress. That’s how scared she was,” he says.

In the book, Porter also says that after JFK won the Democratic nomination for president, Peter Lawford tossed a wild party for him at his sprawling beach house in Santa Monica. JFK personally telephoned Marilyn to invite her and suggested, “You might bring along a girlfriend.” She understood the intent of that invitation, and called Jeanne Carmen to ask her to go with him.

Carmen later claimed that the wild party at the Lawford home quickly evolved into an orgy. She said that after a swim with some of the other pool partiers, who were nude, she retreated to a bedroom at the Lawford home to take a shower. Marilyn, she claimed, knocked on her door and told her that JFK wanted her to come to his bedroom. Carmen rejected the offer at first but Marilyn pleaded with her saying, “We should think of it as doing something for our country.”

There is serious doubt that Marilyn had to plead very hard. Without a lot of persuasion, Carmen entered JFK’s bedroom, with Marilyn immediately behind her. The candidate for U.S. president was lying on the bed wearing nothing but his jockey shorts. He summoned Carmen over and began to massage her shoulders. He whispered that Marilyn and she should think of themselves as “pioneers of the New Frontier of the 1960’s.” Carmen admitted that finally she relented—“overwhelmed by Jack’s extraordinary charm, good looks, and a buzz from the alcohol I’d consumed at Peter’s party.”

As she looked up after JFK had tongue-kissed her, she saw Marilyn dropping her towel and moving toward the bed.

Monroe’s affairs with the Kennedy’s and her involvement with Mobster Johnny Roselli are also confirmed in the thrilling, tell-all biography, Jeanne Carmen: MY WILD, WILD LIFE as a New York Pin Up Queen, Trick Shot Golfer & Hollywood Actress by Carmen’s son and author Brandon James.

According to the book, Carmen’s Hollywood life came to an abrupt end after her dear friend Marilyn Monroe died mysteriously on August 5, 1962. The next morning, Carmen’s apartment was broken into and ransacked. She stumbled upon the intruder and was thrown to the ground. The man standing over her was famed Hollywood private detective Fred Otash, who in turn pulled a gun out, pointed it at her face, and pulled the trigger. Lucky for her, the chamber was empty and only a loud click emanated from the gun barrel. Carmen collapsed and broke down in tears shortly after hearing the allegations that Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana had Marilyn Monroe murdered in an attempt to frame the Kennedys and ruin their political careers.

Marilyn Monroe died over 50 years ago on August 5, 1962. The publics endearing fascination for the doomed star has never faded. So who would want to take the life of someone who was so loved? “A lot of people had a lot to lose if Marilyn spoke out,” says author Darwin Porter.

Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe – reveals the Naked Truth on Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn Monroe and Bobby Kennedy

“Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe”

Another witness had no doubt about the nature of MARILYN’S relationship with ROBERT KENNEDY: JEANNE CARMEN, Marilyn’s neighbor at the Doheny apartment in Los Angeles, said she remembered an astonishing episode, which probably occurred in the spring of 1962. ‘I was at Marilyn’s place one evening when the doorbell rang. She was in the tub, and she called to me to get it. I opened the door, and there was Bobby.’ Carmen said she recognized the Attorney General at once, but was completely nonplussed. So was Robert Kennedy. ‘He had that expression of not knowing whether to run, or walk, or stay,’ said Carmen. ‘I was stunned, and I kept saying, “Come in,” but went on standing in his way. Finally, I got out of the way, and Marilyn came flying out of the bathroom, and jumped into his arms … she kissed him openly, which was out of character for her…‘

That night, said Carmen, she shared a glass of wine with Marilyn and Robert Kennedy — in a somewhat awkward atmosphere — then left them alone. She said Marilyn had told her some time earlier that she had seen John Kennedy, but never said much about the elder brother.

There was another occasion, says Carmen, when John and Robert arrived together with a couple of companions, then left almost at once with Marilyn. There was, she said, one further encounter with Robert Kennedy. She discussed it with some reluctance, and understandably so. If true, it was a remarkable episode, with a bizarre background.

Carmen discovered early on Marilyn’s mischievous delight in nudity. They once went to the movies together, each of them naked under a mink coat. (Given Marilyn’s history of such antics, this seems plausible.) Carmen said they were both friends of comedian Jack Benny; Marilyn had known him since 1953, and witnesses confirm they were friends. Benny’s home number appears in Marilyn’s address book.

Benny, says Carmen, would accompany Marilyn and herself to a massage parlor on Sunset, where they would all have facials. Once, for a lark, and to tease Benny, the two women walked out of the building and “flashed” their mink coats open at Benny, who was waiting outside in the car. Both were naked under the coats.

Carmen says nudity became something of a running joke for the trio— she makes it clear there was no sexual aspect so far as Benny was concerned— and they occasionally ventured forth to a “nude beach.” In the early sixties there was a beach where nude swimming was permitted, well to the north of Santa Monica, near the present Pepperdine University. As a sort of mutual dare, Carmen says, Jack Benny and Marilyn would accompany her to this beach in disguise—Marilyn in her black wig, Benny in a false beard acquired specially for the purpose. It worked, nobody recognized them. The false beard remained lying around Marilyn’s apartment and—in 1962— that was how Robert Kennedy came into the story.

“The beard was lying there,” Carmen says, “when Bobby came to see Marilyn, and I think he asked us what it was for. We explained, and told him about the Benny thing, and he said, ‘You could recognize Benny if he had ten beards on.’ And Marilyn said, ‘Oh, no, you couldn’t. Nobody’d recognize you if we fixed you up.’ And she put the beard on him, I put sunglasses on him, and we put a hat on him like a baseball cap sort of thing. And he looked in the mirror and said something like ‘I could probably get away with this.’ And we said, ‘Okay, we dare you! Let’s go.’”

Carmen is aware her story sounds preposterous, but she says Robert Kennedy simply seemed unable to resist a dare. That, certainly, is in character. They went off to the nudist beach in Carmen’s convertible—Kennedy in his getup and Marilyn in her wig. It was late, she says, and not many people were around. “We walked up and down, and sat on a blanket we brought from the car,” Carmen recalls. “Once we got out there and found nobody cared. Here were two famous people that nobody recognized—we just sort of lounged around. On the way back, we really laughed a lot.”

Checks of her background, and her own voluminous file on her show business career, indicate that Carmen was what she says she was and had many of the friends she claims she had in that period, including PETER LAWFORD and FRANK SINATRA. She correctly named the landlady of the Doheny apartments at the relevant time, and was clearly familiar with the building when we visited it together in 1983. Marilyn did not give up the apartment at once when she moved to her new house in spring 1962.

‘Murdered by the Mafia': Did Bobby Kennedy pay for Marilyn Monroe’s killing?

October 3, 2012

The MIRROR NEWS in ENGLAND has published this shocking account of what happened to MARILYN MONROE the night she died.

Read the complete text at this link:

‘Murdered by the Mafia': Did Bobby Kennedy pay for Marilyn Monroe’s killing?

Nearly 50 years after her death on August 5, 1962, a bombshell book claims to finally reveal who murdered Marilyn

* The book — MARILYN AT RAINBOWS END: SEX, LIES, MURDER AND THE GREAT COVER UP by DARWIN PORTER is published by BLOOD MOON [ISBN: 978-1–936003-29-7]

When movie goddess MARILYN MONROE’s naked body was found on her bed at her Hollywood home, it was assumed she had killed herself.

Devastated by tangled affairs with American President JOHN F KENNEDY and brother BOBBY, the 36-year-old star of The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot was said to have overdosed on sleeping pills.

But so many things didn’t add up that conspiracy theories began immediately.

Now, nearly 50 years after her death on August 5, 1962, a bombshell book claims to finally reveal who murdered Marilyn.

Investigative author DARWIN PORTER – who knew the star – claims five Mafia hoodlums working under orders from mob boss SAM GIANCANA carried out the hit.

But he believes Bobby, who secretly visited Marilyn with his British brother-in-law PETER LAWFORD hours before she died, had a lot to do with her death.

“Of course Bobby didn’t do it,” Porter tells the Mirror, in an exclusive interview. “He was a very smart man.

“Sam Giancana had the motive to kill her – she was threatening to blow the lid off his operations.

“But it also begs the question, did someone pay him to murder Marilyn?

“And if someone did pay him, the only person I can think of is a Kennedy.”

Three-times-married Marilyn had fallen head over heels in love with the married President – shocking the world by breathlessly singing happy birthday to him wearing a gown so tight little was left to the imagination – but he passed her on to his brother.

Attorney General Bobby promised to leave his wife for Marilyn but weeks before she died, he stopped returning her calls.

Distraught, Marilyn had a brief fling with the youngest Kennedy brother, Ted, then started telling friends she was going to call a press conference to reveal all of her affairs.

The vulnerable star, who was battling problems with drugs and alcohol, intended to expose the Mafia’s secrets too.

Like her occasional lover FRANK SINATRA, she had become entangled in the mob after bedding Giancana’s henchman JOHNNY ROSELLI.

He used strong arm tactics to get Marilyn her first Hollywood contract in 1947 – in return the mobsters expected her to seduce powerful men they wanted to blackmail.

“A lot of people had a lot to lose if Marilyn spoke out,” says 74-year-old Porter.

He first met Marilyn when, as a teenager, he saw her strip off to try on a bikini made by his fashion designer mother.

“She was making a lot of dangerous statements and didn’t realise she was playing with the big boys. I think Marilyn got in over her head – she fell into a barrel.

“Her close friend, actress JEANNE CARMEN, told me Marilyn thought she was too big to touch. After Marilyn’s death, Roselli ordered Jeanne to get out of town.

She moved to Arizona, gave up acting and worked as a waitress. That’s how scared she was.”

President Kennedy unwittingly got caught up with the Mafia – he shared a lover, Judith Campbell Exner, with Giancana – and his father Joe used the mob to “buy” election votes.

In another twist, Porter says the Mafia and the CIA were working hand-in-glove to bring down America’s enemies. They used Marilyn to strip off and perform a sex act on Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and considered involving her in a plot to poison President Fidel Castro of Cuba.

Marilyn’s phones in Brentwood, California, were bugged and spies heard numerous accounts of the gossip-loving icon revealing all about her affairs to friends.

In the months before her death, Marilyn became more erratic as she consumed copious amounts of prescription pills, washed down with champagne.

She told pals she was pregnant but wasn’t sure whether the father was Jack or his brother.

She was also considering two marriage proposals – from ex-husband Joe DiMaggio and Mexican Jose Bolanos.

Despite being fired from her final movie Something’s Got To Give, she had several new film deals lined up and the offer of a cabaret show in mob-run Las Vegas.

“In her final hours she was arranging a date with MARLON BRANDO and discussing plans for the next week,” says Porter.

“Peter Lawford claims Marilyn was slurring when he spoke to her the last time. That’s not true. Others phoned after him and she sounded fine.

“The silliest thing of all is the claim that BOBBY KENNEDY was nowhere near California that day.

“He was pictured with his family in San ­Francisco. Then he got a plane to LA and was seen by all sorts of people.”

Porter says Marilyn used private detectives to bug her home to keep records of her trysts with the President and other famous men.

That afternoon, they picked up a screaming match between Bobby and Marilyn.

He claims Roselli called at Marilyn’s house at 10pm on August 4, leaving the door unlocked so five hitmen could sneak in.

“Slipping behind Marilyn, one of the men removed a chloroform-soaked washcloth from his bag,” Porter says.

“The cloth was forced over her nose and mouth. Giancana had issued orders that her body was not to be bruised.”

Marilyn was carried into the un-bugged guest cottage in her garden, where the thugs stripped her and administered an enema of barbiturates.

They bolted when they heard her housekeeper return.

What happened over the next few hours remains the source of intense speculation but Porter claims Hollywood publicists and doctors were called long before the police and paramedics at 4.25am.

In the time between the killing and police arriving on the scene, Marilyn had been moved from the cottage to the her bedroom in the main house.

By then actor Lawford had also arrived. Porter says he emptied the contents of Marilyn’s filing cabinet into three cardboard boxes. Among the things that disappeared was Marilyn’s red diary.

JACK CLEMMONS was the first police officer to arrive at the house just after 4.30am. “I felt I’d arrived at the scene of a murder,” he later said.

“Her body was artfully arranged by someone. It was obvious to me that this was a staged event.

“Her legs were arranged perfectly, as if she was getting ready to pose for a nude calendar.

“I had been at suicide scenes before, especially when the victim overdosed on barbiturates. In the last minutes before consciousness is lost, there is a great pain and the body contorts.”

Clemmons was replaced by more senior officers and ordered to keep quiet.

Porter’s account is convincing. “I went to see Marilyn’s surviving friends, many were dying and had nothing to lose by finally telling the truth,” he says.

As for who paid for the hit, that’s for his readers to decide.

COVER-UP EXPOSED! MARILYN WAS MURDERED! BOMBSHELL NEW EVIDENCE!

September 23, 2012

The NATIONAL EXAMINER [September 24, 2012 issue] has just published a chilling expose on what really happened the night MARILYN MONROE died.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“BOMBSHELL NEW EVIDENCE BLOWS UP SUICIDE THEORY”

“Screen siren MARILYN MONROE died at the hands of five Mafia hit men just before the brokenhearted star planned to hold a press conference that would have shattered the lives of the KENNEDY clan and Mob boss SAM GIANCANA.

That’s just one of the shocking claims in a blockbuster new biography of Monroe, who passed away just over 50 years on August 5, 1962.
A lot of people had a lot to lose if Marilyn spoke out,” says the book’s author, acclaimed investigative journalist Darwin Porter.

“Her close friend, actress JEANNE CARMEN, told me Marilyn thought she was too big to touch.”

The book — MARILYN AT RAINBOWS END: SEX, LIES, MURDER AND THE GREAT COVER UP (BLOOD MOON) — makes the definitive case against the men he blames for Monroe’s murder, especially BOBBY KENNEDY, says Porter.

And the tell all tome totally debunks the official story that the 36 year old Monroe died alone in her Hollywood home after taking an overdose of barbiturates.”

“Marilyn had lots to live for,” says Darwin Porter in his new book.

The Some Like It Hot star was bitter over being used and dumped by the Kennedy brothers, Porter says, but she had plenty to live for…

“I went to see Marilyn’s surviving friends,” Porter says. “Many were dying and had nothing to lose by finally telling the truth.”

If Monroe had lived, she could have revealed her affairs with John F Kennedy, Robert F Kennedy and even a fling with Ted Kennedy, says Porter. And she could have disclosed JFK’s ties to Giancana, including the men’s shared mistress Judith Campbell Exner.

BOBBY KENNEDY and his actor brother-in-law PETER LAWFORD visited Monroe hours before her death, he says. And the journalist believes Bobby had a lot to do with Monroe’s murder.

“Of course Bobby didn’t do it, ” says the author. “He was a very smart man.”

Monroe was set up by a Mob boyfriend who left her door unlocked for the five hit men, says Porter. The killers surprised the star and knocked her out with a chloroform-soaked rag. Then they stripped her naked and administered an overdose of barbiturates.

“Sam Giancana had the motive to kill her — she was threatening to blow the lid off his operations,” says Porter. “But it also begs the question: Did someone pay him to murder Marilyn? And if someone did pay him, the only person I can think of is a Kennedy.”

After 50 Years, THE FINAL VERDICT to Hollywood’s Most Puzzling Mystery

[p 251-252] After JFK won the Democratic nomination for president, Peter and Patricia Lawford tossed a wild party for him at their sprawling beach house in Santa Monica. JFK personally telephoned Marilyn to invite her and suggested, “You might bring along a girlfriend.” She understood the intent of that invitation, and called Jeanne Carmen to ask her to go with him.

What happened next was later revealed by Carmen as part of a red-hot story in the tabloid newspaper, The Globe, which ran a four-part series entitled True Confessions of a Hollywood Party Girl.

In the series, Carmen claimed that the wild party at the Lawford home quickly evolved into an orgy.  She said that after a swim with some of the other pool partiers, who were nude, she retreated to a bedroom at the Lawford home to take a shower. Marilyn, she claimed, knocked on her door and told her that JFK wanted her to come to his bedroom. In the article, Carmen said that she at first rejected the offer, telling Marilyn, “I don’t do that.”

In print, however, Carmen was far too modest about her past.  She had had three-ways before, notably with actor Brad Dexter. Marilyn and Carmen had also each indulged in lesbian trysts, including with one another. Carmen admitted to this in her candid memoirs. She claimed that Marilyn had to plead with her, saying, “We should think of it as doing something for our country.”

There is serious doubt that Marilyn had to plead very hard. Without a lot of persuasion, Carmen entered JFK’s bedroom, with Marilyn immediately behind her. The candidate forU.S. president was lying on the bed wearing nothing but his jockey shorts.  He summoned Carmen over and began to massage her shoulders. He whispered that Marilyn and she should think of themselves as “pioneers of the New Frontier of the 1960’s.”  Carmen admitted that finally she relented—“overwhelmed by Jack’s extraordinary charm, good looks, and a buzz from the alcohol I’d consumed at Peter’s party.”

As she looked up after JFK had tongue-kissed her, she saw Marilyn dropping her towel and moving toward the bed.

p. 164 – Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn’s best friend, recalled a night she was invited to the Lawford house inSanta Monica. “I couldn’t believe my eyes. There were at least twenty people there, men and women, cavorting in the nude. Even the president of theUnited   Stateswas naked. It was the prelude to an orgy. I couldn’t believe that Jack would take such chances. He was reckless as Marilyn.” “I didn’t join the orgy, but made it with a handsome twenty-nine year old secret service agent in the Lawford garage,” Carmen explained. “The guy was really hung and knew how to drill his tool.” Living next door, golfer Peter Dye referred to the Lawford home as “the biggest bordello in the West, rivaling anythingLas Vegashas to offer— and no one charged. Everybody was giving it away.”

p. 178 – Jeanne Carmen told a red-hot story to the tabloid newspaper, the Globe, which ran a four-part series called True Confessions of a Hollywood Party Girl. In the series, Carmen recalled a wild pool party at Peter Lawford’s house to celebrate JFK’s nomination in 1960. Both Carmen and Marilyn were invited to the party. Carmen claimed that after a swim, she retreated to a back bedroom within the Lawford home to take a shower. MM, she said, knocked on her door and told her that the Democratic presidential nominee wanted a three-way.  At first Carmen turned down the offer, telling MM, “I don’t do that.”  ButMonroepleaded with her, claiming “We can think of it as doing something for our country.” Finally she told Carmen that she’d have to reject JFK herself, up close and personal. Accordingly, Carmen went into another of the house’s bedrooms, finding Jack in his underwear.  A master seducer, he began to massage her shoulders. He whispered that MM and herself should think of themselves “as pioneers on The New Frontier of the 1960’s.”  Carmen admitted that she finally gave in — ‘overwhelmed by Jack’s extraordinary charms, good looks, and a buzz from the alcohol I’d consumed at Peter’s party.” As she looked up after JFK had tongue kissed her, she saw Marilyn dropping her towel and moving toward the bed.

p. 179 –Hollywoodactress and pinup queen, Jeanne Carmen, a Marilyn Monroe clone, was also her best friend and confidante. She recalled the night she drove with Marilyn to meet JFK.  She saw Marilyn gushing over the presidential candidate. “I just know he’s going to be the next president.” Marilyn told Carmen. “Wouldn’t it be funny if we got married and I became the First Lady?” Carmen warned MM that Jack was already married. “So what?” Marilyn asked. “So was Arthur Miller. But that didn’t stop me. If they want you bad enough, they’ll do whatever it takes to get you.”

p. 182 – One of Marilyn’s closest friends, Carmen, who lived nearby, remembered opening the door to Marilyn’s house to discover Bobby Kennedy on the doorstep. When she heard who it was, Marilyn came rushing out of the bathroom. “She jumped into his arms,” Carmen said, “and they started kissing madly. We had a glass of wine together before Marilyn reminded me that I had important business to take care of.”

p. 183 – Carmen also claimed that she went with Marilyn and Bobby to a nude beach near the present dayPepperdineUniversitynorth ofSanta Monica. Marilyn, according to the report, wore a black wig, and Bobby had on sunglasses and a fake beard. Each of them went unrecognized. “Could you imagine what a sensation it would have been if a nude Marilyn Monroe and a nude Attorney General had been snapped on the beach by some photographer?” Carmen asked.    Marilyn told best friend Jeanne Carmen, “I’m still married to Arthur but he makes me unhappy. My marriage to him has only months to go.”

p. 194 – Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn’s closest friend and confidant, always said that “To Jack, Marilyn was just another fuck. One night when Marilyn wasn’t up to it, she sent me to Jack’s suite and I serviced him.”  “He wasn’t very good in bed,” Carmen continued. “He was a two-minute man. I had Bobby, too, and he was better in bed, with a much larger penis. I think Bobby fell in love with Marilyn. That was too bad. No good would come out of that affair. Look what happened.” According to Carmen, “The biggest explosion came when Bobby discovered that Marilyn was keeping a diary of her involvement with both of them. ‘Get rid of that god damn thing,’ he shouted at her. “You could bring down a government.’”

Jeanne Carmen – True Confessions on Marilyn Monroe and John F Kennedy

JFK affair with Marilyn Monroe… Kennedy ties to mafia boss Sam Giancana… revealed by Pin Up Icon Jeanne Carmen

February 10, 2012

Follow the incredible journey of Jeanne Carmen’s wild life in this extraordinary, true life story of an American icon by author Brandon James in his thrilling, tell-all biography, Jeanne Carmen: MY WILD, WILD LIFE as a New York Pin Up Queen, Trick Shot Golfer & Hollywood Actress.

Ride along as the legendary Carmen travels the long, winding and sometimes dangerous road from a poverty-stricken childhood in Arkansas, to a bona fide New York Pin Up Queen, to a noted trick shot golfer who falls into the clutches of the mafia in Las Vegas – and finally to a celebrated Hollywood actress who dazzled her celebrity friends, including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, President John F. Kennedy, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, Elvis Presley and Errol Flynn, among countless others.

Accompany her as her Hollywood life came to an abrupt end after her dear friend Marilyn Monroe died mysteriously on August 5, 1962. The next morning, Carmen’s apartment was broken into and ransacked. She stumbled upon the intruder and was thrown to the ground. According to Carmen, the man was famed Hollywood private detective Fred Otash, who in turn pulled a gun out, pointed it at her face, and pulled the trigger.

New Details on Jeanne Carmen, Tony Curtis & Marilyn Monroe in American Prince: A Memoir

Hollywood Legend TONY CURTIS has published the book AMERICAN PRINCE: A MEMOIR: Crown Publishing Group: ISBN-13: 9780307408495

Marilyn Monroe said that when she was a child her mother had been sick. Marilyn didn’t mention her father. She had a friend named JEANNE CARMEN, a showgirl, who was very important to her, but on the whole Marilyn made it sound as if she was very isolated. We started to kiss and fondle each other, but that was the extent of the evening. At 11 o’clock, I drove her back.

I liked Marilyn very much and really enjoyed her company. She was a little odd, but so was I. We both acted very outgoing, but deep down we weren’t at ease with ourselves. Her reluctance to open up about her life just made me that much more interested in her, but the next few times I called to make a date she told me she was busy. Marilyn had been spending time at the Twentieth Century Fox studio. She was changing her style, her look, even her persona. When we had first started going out, she spoke in a normal voice, plainly and directly. Now she was learning what the public wanted, and by the end of our relationship she was beginning to talk with that breathy, sexy affectation that became her trademark. She also changed her hair colour, from red to platinum blonde.

On our next date we went for lunch at the Twentieth Century Fox commissary. That weekend I asked Howard Duff if I could use his house again. I bought a couple of steaks and picked Marilyn up at her hotel. Howard had a little grill in his garden. I cooked the steaks, opened a can of string beans, cut up some tomatoes, and uncorked a bottle of wine.

We had a leisurely dinner; then we walked outside in the moonlight. I knew something was going to happen, and so did she.

About two o’clock we went up to the bedroom, and I took off my shirt. Marilyn made herself comfortable, stripping down to her panties and bra, and sat on the edge of the bed. She was magnificent. We started to kiss and hold each other, and I undid her bra. Her breasts were every teenage boy’s fantasy come true. As we began to make love, I could tell that this was not her first time. She moved easily and seemed comfortable, which made her comfortable, too.

Something about it just seemed so right. I was bedding more than a few great-looking girls at this time in my life, but I liked Marilyn more than any of the others. She was different. She was very fragile and vulnerable, which attracted me greatly. We continued seeing each other for awhile. We would go to her friend JEANNE CARMEN’s place, or Howard’s bungalow, and once we even went to Marilyn’s hotel room. We almost never went out at night in public, though.

Marilyn was the first woman I ever truly felt close to. We had real feelings for each other, although I wasn’t ready for a serious relationship, and neither was she. Neither one of us was willing – or able – to take what we had between us to the next level.

New Details on Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn Monroe in The Los Angeles Times

Pin Up Icon Jeanne Carmen was interviewed by The Los Angeles Times after the death of Marilyn Monroe on August 4, 1962.

In the article, the Times stated that “from other sources”—including Carmen, housekeeper Eunice Murray and film director John Huston—a darker, more mysterious version of Monroe’s last days was already emerging.

The Times reported that Carmen was “a neighbor” of Monroe and that she had seen Marilyn two weeks earlier and had stated that Monroe “looked like death.”

After the death of Monroe, Carmen “felt her own life was in danger” because of her knowledge of Monroe’s affairs with President John F Kennedy and his brother Bobby Kennedy.

So Carmen “skipped town” leaving Hollywood behind and landing in the small desert town of Scottsdale, Arizona where she lived incognito for over a decade.

Carmen abandoned her platinum blonde locks, had three children and lived a quiet life, never mentioning her prior life in Hollywood. 

Carmen would not be seen again on the big screen, TV or in print for over two decades.

New Details on Jeanne Carmen, Marilyn Monroe in Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe

Investigative journalist Anthony Summers  has published the New York Times bestseller Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe.

Among the revelations was new evidence on the long-rumored affairs between Monroe and President John F. Kennedy and his brother Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.

Summers had tracked down Carmen, who was then living in Newport Beach, California, and interviewed her extensively about her career and relationships with such notable Hollywood entertainers as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Monroe.

Carmen confirmed that she was present during romantic trysts between President Kennedy and Monroe that took place at Lawford’s Santa Monica beachhouse.

Carmen also confirmed that she was present during Robert F. Kennedy’s romantic trysts with Monroe and that, on a dare, the threesome ventured out to a nude beach in Malibu north of Point Dume. Kennedy wore a disguise made up of a baseball cap, sunglasses and fake goatee-style beard most likely borrowed from the studio makeup and FX department at Monroe’s studio 20th Century Fox

British author Matthew Smith has published the book Marilyn’s Last Words: Her Secret Tapes and Mysterious Death in the United States.

The same book was published in the U.K. and in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa with the title Victim: The Secret Tapes Of Marilyn Monroe.

Smith states that “Marilyn’s friend Jeanne Carmen” was aware of Marilyn’s issues with low self esteem and that Carmen believed Marilyn’s “general insecurity problem related to her lack of education” and that “a girl needs a dad to tell her she’s wonderful, and Marilyn didn’t have that.”

Carmen also said that when Marilyn was Norma Jean she was a “fun person, just an ordinary, nice person” but when she would “step over the threshold” and make the “change to Marilyn Monroe” she radiated beauty and charm and elegance. “She was a queen”.
