Shape-Up Secrets from Old Hollywood Glamour Girls
How the original list of sexiest celebs stayed in camera-ready shape.
By Charlotte Andersen
“The ultimate glamour girl, Marilyn Monroe was more famous for her other, ahem, assets than her cooking prowess, but biographers say Monroe was on the forefront of the health-food movement. Plus, the curvy beauty was one of the first famous females known to routinely lift weights.
According to old grocery receipts and reports from friends, Monroe was a homebody who loved to do her own shopping and then cook healthy, sometimes elaborate meals at home.”
We just love it! No matter how much time has passed, Marilyn is still in the news. And, as we approach the 50th anniversary of her death, not only is she still mentioned in magazines and news articles, but we are finding her more and more in main stream media. For instance, she has been featured in movies such as “My Week With Marilyn;” her life is being made into a musical in this years hottest television super hit “SMASH” (which has been picked up for another season by the way); and documentaries, the latest of which will be out, according to The Art Newspaper, later this year by Philippe Parreno (working title is “Marilyn,” but he is thinking of changing it to “Celebrations.”)
She is also showing up in more commercials. Just recently, she appeared in one for J’adore Dior and one for Coke a Cola. Bill, our manager from Gator Creek Artists Entertainment, puts it this way, “2012, the year of all things Marilyn.” And all things is right! If you haven’t already noticed, you soon will, that more and more Marilyn memorabilia is hitting the shelves; purses, hats, luggage, bags, lunch boxes, posters, key chains, cups, etc. Anything you can think of that a picture can be emblazoned on, you will find Marilyn Monroe in some form or fashion on it. And, as summer approaches, the frenzy will only increase.
And so we know, that this is the perfect time for our book to be released. “What She Knew” a story of what might have been, had one of the world’s most beloved people, Marilyn Monroe, been allowed to live.
Blessings to you all, K.R. and T.L.
