They look like they are. Nowadays she''d be called a fat hog. I miss when that was the beauty standard, not this Skeletor look. It might be nice to hang clothes on these human hangars for a runway show, but it''s NOT PRETTY.
Definitely real; the photos are carefully posed and lit, to hide the fact that they''re starting to head south. %0D\
I miss the days of seeing real boobs in the media. Today it''s 100% rubber implants.
That''s not safe for earth
Did you know that Lainie''s autobio was cancelled because she wouldn''t discuss her lesbianism and there were so many public questions?
So, it''s not just the males that are BIG where it counts the most among the Jewish...
God, I remember jerking off to those pics. But then I discovered After Dark magazine and all bets were off.
Agree with r2, wish the dying of starvation look would go away!
R7? Are you a hetero guy?
Lainie Kazan was always a gorgeous woman with a hot body.%0D\
I remember seeing Lainie in one of Sinatra''s late 60''s movies and her boobs were so huge he couldn''t keep his eyes off of them.
She desperately wanted the Doris Roberts part in Everybody Loves Raymond
What??? She''s a lesbian??? I can''t find anything on the net about it. Not denying it... I just never knew that.
Fired from two Broadway shows (SEESAW and the revival of THE WOMEN for being ''difficult'' although insider once told me she was fired from SEESAW, the musical because she was too fat. She was replaced by Michele Lee.%0D\
I wish that Kazan''s MGM albums would come out on CD... they were pretty wonderful.%0D\
After she posed for Playboy she told one interviewer that she was ''shocked'' to learn that teenage boys were masturbating looking at her layout!!
SO Michele Lee stabbed Lainie in the back?
No R15, more like Michael Bennett.
R13, if you''ve never heard any lesbian rumors, consider some of these facts: One short marriage, one child, single since she was 30, no dates with men even for show. No public social live before first & only husband. If this woman was ever "hot" would she have been asked out by men more often?
[quote]She''s a lesbian???\
She''s not. It''s just another DL fairy tale. A bunch of dykes probably rubbed their clits raw fantasizing about her 30 yrs ago and their fantasies have turn reality in their basement bed sets.
Oh yeah, I once read here that Lainie is pretty openly gay off stage/screen. But she must keep quiet and maintain an image for those country club singing dates she still plays.
R18 = another deluded DL queen who believes George Clooney is a homo.
If I was Lainie''s daughter I would try to steal Jason Gould''s sperm and do in vitro
[quote]another deluded DL queen who believes George Clooney is a homo.\
Nope. Now get back to rubbin, fatso.
R20''s last twinkie.
Lainie Kazan is gross.
I''ve worked with her and am pretty sure she is straight. Loves gays, but straight.
I would say these days Lainie''s lover of choice is a big dildo.
R23, is and was are two different things.
Here''s a photo of Lainie Kazan, Lily Tomlin, Jaye P. Morgan, and some others...What doLily, Jaye P., and Lainie have in common, r24?
R9, I was hetero in terms of jerking off to porno until I was around 13 and then my dad, who was bi, started buying Blueboy and After Dark and I started looking at them and wanting to suck on Marc Singer''s tits along with Lainie''s. %0D\
I''m bi but still into big tits and fucking/licking pussy but my emotional preference will always be with a man. I do prefer fucking women than men, though.%0D\
I do remember looking at photos of Lainie and Yul Brynner, they apparently made an awful movie together. I was hot for them both in retrospect.
Interesting, r7. Did your dad ever formally come out or did you just deduce he was bi from the magazine stash?
Lainie was in a very long relationship with Peter Daniels until his death a few years ago. She''s not a lesbian.
The great comic book artist Jack Kirby, a huge fan of zaftig women, based his character Big Barda in MR. MIRACLE comics on Lainie''s PLAYBOY spread.
R23, what evidence do you have that''s she''s straight? Lainie was MARRIED to Peter Daniels. they separated in the 1970s. %0D\
Note, Lena Horne gave Lainie a quote for the back of one of her CDs in the mid-1990s and Lena didn''t usually priase white people in public. %0D\
R22, soooo bitter. LOL!
R27 -- Kaye Ballard''s in that photo. Another one!
R29 my dad never formally came out as bi. However a very early memory I have is of being taken into NYC (we lived on Long Island)to visit an AA buddy of of his and sitting on the toilet looking up at the walls which were laminated with body builders. I sensed something then. My dad died when I was 20 and I never spoke to him about his sexuality. I loathed him by then anyway because he was a deadbeat dad who spent his final years blowing his money on porno and booze and not coming up with alimony/child support.%0D\
Happy Father''s Day, dad! Burn in Hell.
I just want to know if R7 is in a relationship with a dude or a chick?
Oh, give it up r32. Jaysus.
Why, r37? This is a gay forum, didn''t you know?
Hugh Jackman, George Clooney and Tom Cruise
She was very hot while younger and is still very attractive.
Ok I''m going to assume this person is a lesbian, because I know none of my fellow lesbians would be wishfully thinking over that.
R36, I''ll only be in relationships with guys. I have a definite emotional preference for men. And I wouldn''t want to be in a relationship with a woman and shut off my desire to be with guys on the side. I just have a sexual component which includes fantasizing about women, jerking off half the time about sex with women. I''ve been with far more men than women sexually. I''ve been in three long-term relationships with men.
They aren''t gay either r38.
"Definitely real; the photos are carefully posed and lit, to hide the fact that they''re starting to head south. "\
Lainie was still fairly young when those photos were taken and btw, there are more to that Playboy set, people also geot to see her bush. Ha-ha.\
Anyway, her tits might have been started to "head south" because they are REAL. You can be a 25 year old woman, if you have very big tits, they do start to sag at a young age!
I saw Lainie''s show at the Plush Room in SF around 2001 and got her to autograph the CD she was selling. The cover is a BW 1972 Playboy-ish shot so she is very proud of the way she looked in those days. She sang "I''m Living Alone and I Like It" which is on the CD, so I think that may be how she is . Great show, made me a fan.
I wanna see Lainie''s bush! Hey, I am another gay who use to get off on this pictorial, the Sarah Miles Playboy spread and some of the couples (Robert Culp and wife; Peter Brown and girlfriend) spreads that appeared in Oui Magazine.%0D\
I am gayer than a basketful of musical comedy bootleg videos, but I always liked straight porno too.
Trolldaring R7, I''m going to say you are a big homo. Nice try though.
R30, Peter Daniels died 20 years ago and he and Lainie were long divorced.%0D\
Lainie was 27 when she did those Playboy shots and her boobs were probably "propped up" a little from underneath; ALL huge breasts that are real sag, boys. Also, Playboy used to (still does?) blank out anything below the belt with darkness so we cannot see anything but "hair" down there. Guess that was tooooo much for Playboy. %0D\
On another note, I''ll give the obnoxious r22 points over ignorant r24 for being more informed about female body parts.
The obnoxious and ignorant r48 seems to be late for her menstrual hut meeting.
r20, Clooney actually is gay. Sorry. There are many public figures who are said to be gay on DL by posters who have no idea what they are talking about. But this is not the case with Clooney. I am saying this because I have it on very good authority that he has a male partner in Italy. I know someone who knows Clooney well.\
What I would like to know is why you are so completely convinced that he''s straight?
"Lainie was 27 when she did those Playboy shots and her boobs were probably "propped up" a little from underneath; ALL huge breasts that are real sag, boys.

I didn't say her opened vag was showing just Lainie's bush.
My father had collected Playboy's soft cover pocket books, they were a combo of jokes, cartoons, articles and pictorials condensed in a small format. Sometimes there would be a special edition like, Playboy's Sex in the Cinema.
The Lainie pictorial was also featured in one of the soft cover books.
In the bush shot, she was wearing this dress made of plastic pieces, it was kind of a 1960s 'groovy' type dress that Goldie Hawn might have danced in on "Laugh-In". Lainie was naked underneath and the bush was definitely in that photo.
I'll have to ask my dad if he still has those PLayboy books, I can sell them on ebay! My parents save everything.
Also, IIRC, the see-through dress photo was shot in what today would be referred to as an "up skirt" photo, so the bush was very visible.\
Btw, I remember things in detail because I used to be a photographer.
Darling, r51, you don''t have to "open your vag" to see stuff and Playboy airburshed these things. Skin is visible between bush.
"you don''t have to "open your vag" to see stuff and Playboy airburshed these things. Skin is visible between bush."\
MY point was you didn''t see Lainie''s meat curtains. You knew EXACTLY what I meant!\
Besides having been a photographer, I''m currently a Creative Director, so I know ALL about enhancing photos etc. \
Correcting photos, AKA "airbrushing" in the old days, took much more time, and more expertise, because as you must know there weren''t any personal computers let alone graphics programs to do these things so quickly.
[quote]Trolldaring, I''m going to say you are a big homo.%0D\
I loath the obnoxious Trolldar Trolls, like r47. Why do they think we give a flying fuck to know their Trolldar accusations?
Regardless whether or not you can see her bush, Ms. Kazan''s "I Loves You Porgy" (MGM LP album) is breathtakingly beautiful.%0D\
Yes, I am the theatre queen who has the window card for THE WOMEN with Lainie listed above the title. This was before she was fired for being too fat.
old theatre queen who can get a rise from those Playboy photos
Poor Lainie is now fatter than Gilbert Grape''s mom.
You''re one to talk, Babs. You look like someone who''s been having a little too much schmear on her bagel yourself. Not to mention all the onion rolls on that plate too!
When I was a kid in the 70s, I remember being very attracted to Lainie...She was one of those women who let me know I was not quite like my friends. I felt ''funny'' when I looked at her.
Her boobs look fake in that photo where she''s smushing them together. The shape just looks wrong.
Wow. Forty-one years ago. To think she hasn''t been down to a 46 AA cup since then.
"Her boobs look fake in that photo where she''s smushing them together. The shape just looks wrong."\
In the linked photo, she appears to be lying down. It seems the photographer took the photo, either standing above her at on odd angle, or standing lower then shooting up at her. \
I think both men and women, whether gay or str8, are so used to seeing fake breasts, not many people remember what real breasts actually look like, unless you''re taking art classes and seeing nudes on a regular basis!
re: her "I Loves You, Porgy" that somebody referenced... you can see her doing it on the Dean Martin show starting at 8:36 in the link. Then there''s a continuation which I''ll post next... But you should really watch the whole thing, because both in serious ballad mode and in swinging/comedy mode in the medley with Dean afterward, it''s remarkable how much of an imprint understudying Streisand clearly left on her. Phrasing, inflections, vocal production, vocal attack... I hear Streisand all over it.
Our little theater in Asbury Park did Funny Girl as a benefit a few years ago. The one night only performance was pretty awful and starred a bad drag queen as Barbra playing Fanny Brice but....the evening opened with Lainie coming out and introducing the show and singing The Music That Makes Me Dance (it was replaced in the benefit performance as it is in the film with My Man). Lainie seemed just lovely though her voice was not what it had been.
Asbury Park Denizen
Back then they used silicon injections, not implants. Anyway, it looks like there''s a ridge along the top of her breast.
R64- That was me that mentioned that song. I still have that Lainie Kazan LP.. remember those?? LOL. Thanks for posting that clip. I miss variety shows.%0D\
Lana Cantrell was another favorite of mine and I wish her RCA albums would come out on%0D\
CD. Lana is a lawyer now in New York City.
Lana? Did someone say Lainie and Lana Cantrell got it on?
How do you know they didn''t? Lana has always been openly gay...
I was at Wal-Mart returning a broken deep fryer I%E2%80%99d gotten as a Christmas gift, and there was a huge commotion in the children%E2%80%99s section. The Wal-Mart employee, a tiny dark-haired woman who barely spoke English, was in tears as she tried to pacify this huge drag queen, who kept repeating him/herself, pumping his/her fist in the air, demanding the same item over and over to this poor, confused Wal-Mart girl. %E2%80%9CI don%E2%80%99t know what she want! I cannot understand what she want!%E2%80%9D miss Wal-Mart cried.\
This drag queen kept demanding %E2%80%9CGet a feathered hat for the baby! Get a feathered hat for the baby! Get a feathered hat for the baby!%E2%80%9D It was then that I realized Lanie Kazan shops at Wal-Mart. I think she had on a body mic, too.
Maybe but in the late 60''s Lana was with someone else.
True, R44. I want to go back to a world with all different kinds of body types, not with bones showing and a layer of skin over a lot of plastic.
IIRC, Lana was with Judy Carne.
I saw Lainie in concert at Purdue University in about 1967. She was wearing a low-cut sequined gown with ample cleavage. During the show one of her large dangling earrings fell off. As she picked it up she held it out and remarked that "they are real", before tucking it into her cleavage. (Obviously, she didn't have any pockets or other places to put it.) Her remark, combined with the disposition of the earring, generated a substantial chuckle from the audience. Realizing the reason for the audience response, she glanced down and said, "oh, they're real too!", which of course, produced a resounding roar from the audience. It was a completely spontaneous moment. I've always believed her statement and believe that her nude photos support that they are real.
