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

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?”
==================
And excerpts from the book have been published this week on dozens of new websites around the world including THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, THE DAILY MAIL in the U.K., THE INDEPENDENT in the U.K., THE IRISH CENTRAL NEWS in Ireland, THE TIMES OF INDIA and 24 TANZANIA in AFRICA to name a few.

New book details JFK’s last year with Jackie: Affair with Marilyn, amphetamines from ‘Dr. Feelgood’

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?

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.

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

May 29, 2009
MGM Grand Hotel - Penthouse - Las Vegas

MGM Grand Hotel - Penthouse - Las Vegas

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.
