In her new tell-all, the Partridge Family matriarch says she was very in tune with the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle of her day. Sometimes she’d even flee the show’s set for a quickie with playboy hubby Jack Cassidy.
“At the height of ‘The Partridge Family,’ now and again Jack would pick me up from the studio in the car, then drive us into the garage adjacent to our house, where he would have intercourse with me in the backseat,” she says.
Jones also says her stepson David Cassidy was definitely his father’s son. According to the tell-all, both Cassidy men were very well endowed. “David’s brothers called him Donk, for Donkey,” she writes.
She also reminisces about exotic escapades they enjoyed “wherever and whenever we wanted,” including one go-round on the floor of a sailboat, dalliances in bathtubs and in backstage dressing rooms.
The actress and author claims her sex encounters often involved other stars, and reflects back on one crazy night in the late ’60s, after she and Jack had dinner with Anthony Newley and Joan Collins at their home.
According to Jones, Newley bragged to her and her hubby that he was in possession of a few porn flicks and suggested the four of them get naked and have a kinky movie night. Jones says she declined the invite.
The book also has a chapter about the night Jones and Jack Cassidy swung by Sammy Davis Jr.’s Beverly Hills home, where lines of cocaine were waiting on every tabletop and porn played on TV screens throughout the house.
While the ’60s may be over, the 79-year-old Jones says she isn’t done yet.
“I still want to make it clear that I believe that a woman can remain sexual right through her 70s and 80s and beyond. I am living proof of that.” Jones writes. “Despite my advanced years, that hasn’t changed a bit, although it can take longer than before for me to achieve sexual fulfillment these days.”
Well, “Come on, Get Happy,” Mrs. Partridge!
Good god is nothing sacred? I think I lost my lunch after reading that.
Is she "open" enough to write about Jack's openly bisexual activities? Or is she too busy proving how "sexual" she was/is to admit that. And what a perv her current husband is too.
I don't need to see that!
And this woman is a Republican?
Shirley, you jest!
I can't say anything about David, but both Patrick and Shaun hung out at the Playboy Mansion a lot... and I do mean hung.
Well, she doesn't have any class.
Mom, shut up!
Really R6? Was Sean well-hung?
They became stars as I entered puberty, and the amount of time I masturbated to Sean and Parker - it is amazing I graduated grade school.
Oops, I meant Shaun, not Sean.
At least she wrote 'intercourse.'
Good God woman. Remember yourself.
I had intercourse in the car, on the floor, in the bathroom, at Sammy's house ...
A real class act
"He fucked the living daylights out of me!"
Mary Astor on George S. Kaufman
I thought she possessed more class than that.
Too bad she's not a gay man. She's be described as a "sexual adventuress" and thank god she's not hung up on heteronormative sex-negativity.
way too much information
R16 has it.
I wonder what else is in there?
She wants an active sex life? Good for her! What, you wanna see us live like in Victorian times? We did have a sexual revolution, remember?
what about the Anthony Newley bit?
This isn't about sex negativity - it's about publishing your every sexual encounter as an attention-seeking tactic. It's the literary equivalent of flashing your tits. .
Did she ever do anal?
On the Bed, on the Floor, On a Towel by the Door, in the Tub, in the Car, up against the Minibar.....
What the fuck? She talked about the size of her stepson's cock?
SO VERY WRONG.
(I guess her biological sons weren't as lucky?)
R1, Jack also had a massive S&M kink.
In what way is her current husband pervy? He's repulsive to look at and listen to, nothing like Jack who was very smooth.
Wasn't Florence Henderson a ho too? I think Flo revealed in her memoir that she cheated on her husband a long time ago and got crabs or something. And then Maureen McCormick (aka Marcia) once said that Flo used to sunbathe topless with her Eve Plumb, and that Flo had a colorful vocabulary. Flo also went on a date with her TV son (Barry Williams).
I didn't know she was that desperate for attention.
One chaste dinner, r27. Let's not indulge our fantasies.
What a bunch of old, pearl-clutching tabbies in this thread.
She is a mother and a grandmother. What about the children r31?
Don't know about the rest, but I am not a pearl clutcher. The use of that phrase alone suggests something on your part. You hyphenate.
It is just tacky and desperate and stupid for Shirley Jones to write this shit. Maybe the excerpt misrepresents her book. That is the best it can get.
WW for R2!
[quote]Good god is nothing sacred? I think I lost my lunch after reading that.
There is so much money to be made if the mass marketers can convince women that they are supposed to remain sexually active and alluring into their eighties.
Perhaps Jones was encouraged or even paid to claim that she is an old horndog in order to turn her book into a stealth advertisement for a thousand sex and beauty-related products.
Florence Henderson got the crabs from John Lindsay, mayor of New York.
R36 You are far to intelligent to be on this site. Run!
Any word of her taking it up the a-hole? It would be so excellent to read about Shirley Partridge's anal sex life.
Did she and Reuben ever fuck on the colored school bus?
One shudders to think of what other details the highly sexual Shirley will be sharing in the book... Did she and Charlotte Greenwood wait out rain delays in their OKLAHOMA! trailers by eating each other's pussies?
I interviewed Shirley Jones for some cable movie she did in the mid 90's. I asked her what she was currently reading, what book was on her nightstand.
Without missing a beat and with a completely straight face she said "The A-Z encyclopedia of serial killers.
I pressed on and yep, she knew her serial killers well.
She's an odd bird but awesome.
I had her bent over my Edsel once in Fresno, gave it to her good.
I love how judgemental these piss drinking, jizz chin bastards are to others on this site. What a bunch of fucking hypocrites.
She has dementia.
Get used to it. The sexual revolution was nearly 50 years ago; many old people have the same stories.
Shirley Jones won her Oscar portraying a prostitute in "Elmer Gantry." In it, she describes her Bible-thumping lover (Burt Lancaster) as "ramming the love of God into me!" This in a movie released in 1956. Shouldn't really be a surprise that Shirley had no problem getting her freak on. Her choice of partners is puzzling, but I say good for her for seeking sexual satisfaction throughout the decades -- it's one of the finest things in life.
Is Elmer Gantry worth watching?
I think it's ok, R47. A bit long and the leading ladies have the typical of the time anachronistic hairstyles, but Lancaster is riveting and Jones acquits herself well. Yeah I guess I do like it. It did freak me out as a stoned teenager.
R22 made me cackle. I want to go read every tit flashing book I can find now.
Aren't a lot of "biographies" like this now? That book by that gas station attendant sounded just as bad, or worse - and it was praised as a masterpiece on DL.
[quote](I guess her biological sons weren't as lucky?)
In my experience, at least one of them got lucky...
This shocking thread has made me reconsider the possibility that the Scotty Bower book is for real.
Elmer Gantry was released in 1960.
Please tell us more, R51.
These are pretty mild revelations. Is it because she's a mother figure that it is repulsive to many of you?
She didn't bother to mention the continuing glories of self-pleasuring in public, which I continue to enjoy.
Always such an up-tight bitch.
Who wouldn't be a hot mama with Mary Ingels around?
R47, ELMER GANTRY s not only worth watching but it is worth owning - a superb film in every way, and VERY prescient.
I get the feeling that she had sex with her stepson, David. Why else would she reveal his cock size?
So, Joan Collins and Anthony Newley were swingers? Joan must have been the inspiration for quite a few stories in sister Jackie's books.
Sammy Davis, Jr. was sure a wild man. He was a swinger, drug-user and a Satanist.
She's "very in tune with" the sexual lifestyle of her times, but she refers to having "intercourse" with Jack Cassidy? **smirk**
And how does she know David C. is well hung? Personal observation?
Supposedly Sammy got blowjob lessons from Linda Lovelace and would deep throat Dean Martin when Dean was drunk too drunk to care. Dean was supposedly mega-hung and Sammy was in awe of his penis.
There's an old story about Shirley and her hubby, the one after Jack, getting caught in some S&M apparatus and the fire/police department had to go to their house and free them. That story went around Hollywood for years.
Shirley has always been into kinky sex.
She's a conservative Republican. Who cares what she thinks about anything.
I'm just imagining my own "Nana" talking like this.
Nana had to fuck someone or you wouldn't be here.
Most fun I've had reading a thread in a LONG time!
Nana was only with Pop-pop, R65! And she never talked about it!
Jean Simmons and Burt Lancaster do the acting chores in Elmer Gantry.
Jean Simmons is the best of the actors in Elmer Gantry. It's a shame she was denied the Oscar for it.
Shirley is perfectly fine for the time, but she won the Oscar mostly for playing against type. And Lancaster is perfectly fine too, though a better actor could have really brought down the house with that role.
As much fun as this thread is, I agree with R63. Who cares what someone that willfully ignorant has to say? She's only progressive in the bedroom.
[quote]Did she and Reuben ever fuck on the colored school bus?
Not that I ever saw.
She was on 'Celebrity Ghost Stories' and said that a ghost blew up her cabin.
The poor ghost was probably tired of watching that old bag having sex all the time.
She was one of the best on Celebrity Ghost Stories! As was Dick van Patten.
Shirley Jones needs her own HBO movie now. Her sordid sex life could give Liberace a run for his money.
This thread is disgusting - are straight people really like that? Are they worried about spreading dangerous diseases? Is all they think about perverted sex? I'll bet Boy Scouts were involved at some point. What has the world come to? What would the Founding Fathers have thought about this?
r62 I heard that story many years ago on one of the old gossip internet forums (agc?) when LA insider used to post.
The story about David's dick and his nickname has also been around a while, I think he wrote about it in his own book years ago. Oh and Shirley's bio sons are also supposed to be equally "blessed" in that area.
It was years ago that I read it, but Pamela des Barres's original tell-all detailed a story about Shirley and Marty that indicted their weirdness. I can't recall details sorry; I also believe she hinted that she de-flowered or at least messed with Shaun or one of his brothers as a young teen.
TMI, Mrs. Partridge, TMI!
"Danny got Reuben/To fuck our Mom/They really came together- thanks to Reuben's big dong"
I'm jist a girl who cain't say no,
I'm in a turrible fix.
I always say, come on, let's go--
Just when I orta say nix!
When a person tries to kiss a girl,
I know she orta give his face a smack.
But as soon as someone kisses me...
I somehow sorta wanna kiss him back!
I'm jist a fool when lights're low,
I cain't be prissy and quaint--
I ain't the type what can faint--
How can I be what I aint?
I caint' say no!
[quote] Was she fucking all her stepsons?
David is her only stepson.
She only had one r83, David.
I see Wendy Leigh is the co-author on this. She's a veteran of gossipy star bios, read her JFK jr book years ago. Didn't she co-author Madonna's brother's tell-all?
Wasn't her husband Marty Engels on "Car 54 Where Are You?" with Fred Gwynne?
I always thought Jack Cassidy pinged to high heaven!
I remember reading Wendy Leigh's book LIZA: BORN A STAR in high school. And yet my parents were surprised when I came out to them the following year!
"At least she wrote 'intercourse.'"
Um, intercourse is not what a woman is looking for, dear ignorant ones. Especially a woman of Shirley's age.
Do any of you know what I'm talking about?
Marty Engels was repulsive.
re: Jack Cassidy (per wikipedia)
[quote]In his autobiography, Cassidy's eldest son David wrote about his father's bisexuality, citing attributed personal accounts and reports, both anecdotal and published, of his father's same-sex affairs, a fact neither he or his siblings discovered until after Cassidy's death.
I wonder if Shirley mentions it in hers?
90 posts and no: EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
I would guess Shirley was cool with Jack's omnisexual escapades given these new tales.
I've always heard she and Diahann Carroll both slept with Richard Rodgers along with any chorus girl he could get. I always thought her being exclusively signed by R&H was more than just grooming her for the film version OKLAHOMA!
Wonder is she address that in the book?
She's trying to sell her book, which is why she's blabbing about sex and drugs. She figures this will titillate people into buying it. But it sounds like her book is just another run-of-the-mill trashy memoir.
Does she really think people are interested in hearing that some old lady almost eighty years old still gets hot and horny but that it takes her longer "to achieve sexual fulfillment these days?" And that she's "living proof" that old bags "can remain sexual?" I mean, why should anybody give a fuck? Her unbosomings are distasteful and undignified, to say the least. Maybe she's getting senile. That would explain a lot.
How gross and creepy. Both she and Florence Henderson think that they are being cutesy poo by being these "hip" old ladies who speak bluntly about sex, STDs and genitalia. She sounds like a total assclown.
I think she's a hoot and I want to read this book!
[quote]That book by that gas station attendant sounded just as bad, or worse - and it was praised as a masterpiece on DL.
That's right. EVERYONE at DL though it was a masterpiece. There were no complaints, R50, because it was perfect. Now, if I've told you once, I've told you 5,346 times to never exaggerate.
Sex negatives! Pearl clutchers! LOL LOL LOL...
Trying to remember Jack Cassidy, all I can recall is that I kept getting him and Rip Taylor mixed up.
Jack Cassidy may have been one of the hammiest actors that ever lived. He was awful.
Jack Cassidy was a ham. And he looked sort of like Jack Haley, to me, the guy who played the Tin Man.
silver hair, moustache and dimples - is it clear now, R98?
Jack Cassidy was in the absolute best Columbo, directed by Steven Spielberg...he played a writer who kills his partner and steals the book his partner was writing...he was a great villain in the other Columbo where he played a magician who murders the manager of the nightclub where he performs.
[quote]In his 1994 autobiography, C'Mon, Get Happy, David Cassidy wrote that he became increasingly concerned about his father in the last years of his life. Jack Cassidy suffered from bipolar disorder and was an alcoholic, who was displaying increasingly erratic behavior. In 1974, his neighbors were shocked to see him watering his front lawn naked in the middle of the afternoon. Shirley Jones described a similar incident when she found him sitting naked in a corner, reading a book. Jones said to Cassidy that they had to get ready to do a show, and he calmly looked up and said, "I know now that I'm Christ."
[quote]She's trying to sell her book, which is why she's blabbing about sex and drugs. She figures this will titillate people into buying it. But it sounds like her book is just another run-of-the-mill trashy memoir.
A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. She's broke and needs some cash. She gave Marty control of her finances and he blew it all.
[quote]Jack Cassidy may have been one of the hammiest actors that ever lived
Didn't he say to Carson, when asked what one thing he would want with him on a desert island, "A mirror"?
Believing that he needed to keep himself available for a career in features, he turned down the role of Ted Baxter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. he would have made a great Ted Baxter, and this could be one of the biggest career mistakes in Hollywood.
He did play Ted Baxter's conceited brother in a memorable MTM episode. It's in regular rotation so that's probably the best place to see him nowadays.
R89, don't you mean is?
The bondage episode with Marty Ingalls goes like this: Marty had Shirley all trussed up naked in the bed and naturally shackled to it. Before the real action could take place, Ingalls suffered a heart attack, So there is Mrs Partridge en flagrante, and unable to seek aid for her husband. She screamed and hollered(a window was open) until a neighbor called the police. When they arrived they could barely control their shock, but someone managed to call the paramedics and ambulance, but they did. Meanwhile they embarrassedly untied and covered her so she wouldn't be mortified when they arrived. Ingalls survived, but the story became a Hollywood legend.
[quote]The book is coming out next month.
Hopefully one of her sons will too.
[quote]There's an old story about Shirley and her hubby, the one after Jack, getting caught in some S&M apparatus and the fire/police department had to go to their house and free them
That exact same story goes around about Stephen Sondheim. Except in the Sondheim story, he had a twink in the s&m sling, and had a heart attack. Paramedics freed twink, who couldn't get out, when they responded to Steve's call.
Damn gurlfriend, can you just imagine what that old, dry snatch looks like after all these years.
Get Happy....... NOT!
R94 And ironically, they're both Republicans. Go figure.
No surprise there R114.
The sex drive crosses party lines.
The story went that she was handcuffed and the fire department broke in, got the key from the dresser and uncuffed her from the bed, but whatever.
Did you know that these two publicity hounds actually told this story on "Sally Jessy Raphael" saying how hurt they were by the gossip. Now Jones goes ahead with a bad taste memoir, which lends credence to the story.
This is probably one of those books where the best parts are in the news article, and the rest is "I loved them so, they were so special to me....zzzzzz."
But how did she know David was "Donk"?
Link to proof that Shirl and Flo are Republicans.
she fucked me too.
It's a shame they don't choose Kennedy Center honorees on the basis of filthy mouths.
Although that does seem to be the criteria when you won, Babs - you old toilet-mouth.
R119 Have you not ever heard of Google? It really is simple to use.
She fucked me too.
Good clip at r79. Takes on new meaning...
That is a pineapple!!!!!
Agreed that this is the book equivalent of flashing her tits. In fact, the old bag seems so desperate for attention that she'd probably be willing to literally flash her tits if it would sell more copies!
Bump for this intercourse-slut
She sounds fun and like a hoot to me
Did she ever have intercourse with Gordon MacRae? I thought he was quite a stud in OKLAHOMA!
In my autobiography, I'll reveal that I'm living proof that sexual feelings vanish upon menopause and that I can't remember any of my wild sexual encounters except for the ones that were uncomfortable and humiliating.
She says she was part of the sex drugs and rock lifestyle prevalent at the time, but then only mentions her sexual exploits. An admission of smoking pot with David and Susan would've been more interesting to me.
Shirley was a guest star on Hot in Cleveland this week playing (spoiler alert) William Shatner's 108 year old mother.
She looked good but didn't have anything particularly funny or memorable to say.
Best lay of my life.
Cassidy's BIG COCK apparently gave Shirley orgasms and made her do lots of kinky things in bed with him. End of story
In the book, Shirley confirms Jack Cassidy's sexual relationship with Cole Porter.
[bold] Come On, Get Happy! Partridge Family Mom Shirley Jones Reveals X-Rated Details In Autobiography [/bold]
Well no wonder she was singing, “Come on, get happy!”
Partidge Family mom Shirley Jones reveals many, many explicit sexual details in her new autobiography, Shirley Jones: A Memoir.
Why it’s enough to make Danny, Keith, Laurie and even Reuben Kincaid blush.
Shirley, 79, appears to hold nothing back, writing about a threesome she had with husband Jack Cassidy. She’s no prude, as the book proves, but the threesome gets a retroactive “yuck” from Jones, according to the Huffington Post.
However, other sexual details are brazenly told and embraced. She isn’t shy about discussing Jack’s impressive manhood. And she relates in clear detail that she was highly sexed.
And while she discusses their sex life in great detail, Jones also reveals Cassidy was repeatedly unfaithful and also once had a sexual encounter with Cole Porter.
As far as the Partridge Family, it was just a job that enabled her to stay in Los Angeles working and come home to her kids at night.
R136, men's cocks -- of any size -- have nothing to do with a woman's orgasm. Is this a gay fantasy or are you really that ignorant?
I thought she had a lot more class. I guess not.
Nothing R39 ?
Nothing at all?
R139, most girls will tell you that size makes a difference.
Sometimes she’d even flee the show’s set for a quickie with playboy hubby Jack Cassidy.
And then what she would return to the set with her pussy reeking of sex stank for all to smell. Sign of a true HO!
Shirley's on today with Katie Couric.
R143, you are so funny. A difference? Okay. An orgasm? No.
When are you idiot size queens going to learn that dick size has nothing to do with sexual performance?
The lousiest fucking lays I've had in my life were all big dicked (at least in their own minds) guys who simply laid there and expected me to be in awe of their equipment.
In sex, its what you do with what you have that makes the difference.
R33, that hyphen is correct, you idiot.
She really is stooping to a low level. She mentions in detail how she can get and maintain her orgasms, who cares! I will read her book because I read a lot of autobiographies and biographies ,but her orgasm part I really don't care.
Dose she out any actors from old Hollywood? I am aware she said her husband, Jack Cassidy had many affairs with men as well as women.
BTW, Marty Ingels drive me nuts! He is really weird!
A while back, Shirley separated from Marty after her Cassidy sons begged her to . . . Shaun, especially, cannot stand Marty.
Well, if nothing else, her appearance on "Katie" demonstrates that she's being diligent about reinforcing her new branding strategy:
"When asked what her secret to appearing youthful, Shirley is quoted as saying: 'Masturbation! Sex keeps you young no matter what. The feelings of it keep you going.'"
It's like she's made a conscious decision to mimic Madonna's PR strategy from the days of her SEX book and EROTICA album. It felt sad/desperate enough when 35-year-old Madonna was doing it.
Ted Cassidy. Anthony Newley. Sammy Davis, Jr.
I'm beginning to see a pattern here.
But, when I was a little boy, I always knew Ted Cassidy was a flamer, long before his swan song.
R152. Except of course it's JACK Cassidy, not Ted, you idiot!
Ted Cassidy played "Lurch" on "The Addams Family" television series.
r145 Accidentally caught some of the SJ interview with Katy. OMG! Does the woman have NO shame? I can never view "Oklahoma!" the same way.
[quote]Oh and Shirley's bio sons are also supposed to be equally "blessed" in that area.
If you were hung like your brother, why would you call him Donk, as in Donkey?
[quote]Ted Cassidy played "Lurch" on "The Addams Family" television series.
She and Jack both fucked him.
Gordon MacRae must have hit on Shirley during the filming of Oklahoma.
According to wife Sheila's book, he was outstanding in bed . . . creative, athletic and insatiable.
I wish somebody would write a book about what a whore I was and how amazing I was at sucking cock - I feel so left out!
Just finished the book. Shirley confirms that Jack Cassidy had a one-night stand with Cole Porter.
She also says that Joan Collins's husband Anthony Newley invited Shirley and Jack over. Joan cooked dinner and Tony invited them to get naked, watch porn and have a fourway.
Shirley and Jack said no thanks and left.
Friends in London says Joan Collins is outraged. Her lawyers have already demanded that the Daily Mail pull their trashy article down from their website.
Now Joan is coming at Shirley, nails bared.
Joan Collins says she always hated porn and never, ever-ever-ever-ever-ever engaged in group sex.
Apparently, according to my brit friends, Joan is calling Shirley a liar, a fabricator and libeler and a stupid vicious cunt.
They aren't sure if Joan is upset that Shirley insinuates that Joan was into group sex...or that Joan is upset that Shirley claims to have Joan DOWN...or that Shirley claims that Joan knew how to cook dinner.
At any rate, my money's on Shirley.
Well maybe Joan wasn't into that scene but Tony Newley was a different story. Huge abusive asshole, could see him making the suggestion and pushing Joan into doing what he wanted. I believe he beat her throughout the marriage.
I like Joan Collins a lot. When Andy interviewed her she seemed like there was no bull with her. Also, she seems like a person who doesn't take her self seriously. Joan says she isn't remotely like her character on Dynasty. In another interview Joan said, I'm sorry but will not go out in public wearing jeans. She said if she is the only person that dresses well in public, and people think she is odd, she doesn't care.she said I will always dress well and I like to live well ,but I have to work for that life.
A poster mentioned she doesn't like porn. Which reminds me, I watched another interview on Joan ,which she said porn demeans women and it's vile. She said porn destroys women's self esteem and women deserve better than that. Again, I like this lady a lot! She is a class act and a star. I think Shirley Jones made a lot of BS to sell her book because her life was boring. I remember some time ago when Shirley Jones talked about her life she said there wasn't much to say.
Don't miss Shirley's concerts this Saturday at the prestigious Boscov Community Auditorium in the Woodbridge Center Mall in Woodbridge, NJ! Will Shirley just be content with flashing her tits to the audience, or will she actually be spreading her pussy open and fingering it on stage?
"Joan Collins says she always hated porn and never, ever-ever-ever-ever-ever engaged in group sex."
Porn was a very different thing 40 years ago. Much less explicit and woman-hating than it is now.
[bold] Shirley Jones' memoir reportedly dropping sexy Joan Collins tale [/bold]
Joan Collins, the 80-year-old "Dynasty" star, reportedly asked to be removed from Shirley Jones' tell-all autobiography in a scene involving the offer of an orgy.
Jones recently published "Shirley Jones: A Memoir." In the book, the "Partridge Family" actress and Oscar-winner depicts a scene in which the young actresses and their then-husbands, Jack Cassidy and Anthony Newley, had dinner at Collins and Newley's Beverly Hills home in the late '60s.
In the book, Jones writes that Collins, "who was wearing a low-cut something or other, seemed like an interesting woman."
The book claims that dinner ended with an indecent proposal, and, according to Jones, "it was clear what Tony was leading up to -- swinging."
Collins claims the story is completely false, according to TMZ, which says the actress sent a cease and desist letter to Jones and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, demanding the passage be excised.
"We all make mistakes," Collins told TMZ, "I've made a few myself, but not with Mrs. Jones. I'm a serial monogamist."
After an initial standoff, Jones and Simon & Schuster reportedly agreed to remove Collins' name from the book, according to TMZ, which says this retraction will go into effect immediately in e-book copies, and in future reprints of the memoir.
Asked for confirmation, a publisher's representative responded, "No comment."
Just finished her book. The last few pages are dedicated on how she masturbates. She said she uses Vaseline and her fingers and makes up dialogue between her and some macho man that she says out loud while she's doing it.
She even tells Marty she masturbated (like Ernest Borgnine told the whole world)
CLUTCH THE PEARLS!!!
this is much more shocking than Scotty Bowers' book Full Service, and You'll Never Make Love In This Town Again, by those Hollywood hookers that Heidi Fleiss had in her stable.
I liked the book. No bullshit about Shirley. She didn't like Herminone Gingold and says Henry Fonda refused to talk to anyone except James Stewart on set. Richard Pryor was stoned his entire Partridge Family ep but she & Louis Gossett are still great friends.
David Cassidy never hooked up with Susan Dey who was desperately in love with him.
Bette Davis told Shirley that Jack Cassidy hit on her in 1971! He'd really sleep with anyone. He was with Batgirl Yvonne Craig at the same time. He was delighted to recount his story of sleeping with Cole Porter to her.
[quote] The dentist incident caused me to loose trust in adults
For fuckssake, is this the AARP Magazine, or whut? Why are we taking this woman ap .. Oh, I see. She's a Republican.
[quote]Shirley confirms that Jack Cassidy had a one-night stand with Cole Porter
You inadvertently made a crippled-person joke.
Cassidy would have hooked up with Cole Porter years after Porter's legs were smashed in a riding accident, rendering them useless. Cole Porter couldn't stand for one minute let alone one night. Makes you wonder how it all played out.
He just had gay sexual fling with Cole Porter and no one else? please! I bet he had sex with a lot of guys.
I read that she liked to eat Triscuits out of Marty's sweaty asscrack.
[quote] Makes you wonder how it all played out.
According to Shirley Jack Cassidy was HUGE, and I don't mean fat. Cole could not resist going down on Jack.
Apparently Cassidy waggled his huge cock and made Porter crawl after him, before finally relenting and letting CP blow him.
As far as I know, Joan Collins managed to get Shirley Jones to retract those remarks.
[quote] He just had gay sexual fling with Cole Porter and no one else? please! I bet he had sex with a lot of guys.
She never mentioned any other males by name, but she did say that Jack once told her that he did whatever it took to get a role.
Gene Kelly slept with Larry Hart to win PAL JOEY.
Victor Garber had sex with Sondheim to win SWEENEY TODD.
This woman is an award winning ICON who is talented sexy (still you dim whits! I would consider this woman the sexiest if she were 105) and what you most don't recall is the time effort and graceful way this treasure has conducted herself her whole life. I don't think it's alright at all to say anything so hurtfull about anyone let alone a lady such as her. I suggest you watch the "MUSIC MAN" with her and the great Robert Preston. Shame on you! Betty White gets applause but Shirley still gets whistles and longing in my book!
Shirley will be playing the Cafe Carlyle March 4-15.
Since she can barely sing anymore, will her act primarily consist of flashing her pussy, or just talking about it?
sweetheart, they're suspecting things....
People..will..say..we're in love!!
I skimmed through Shirley's book in Barnes and Noble the other day. In the overall context of the autobiography, the inclusion of the sexual details really does feel sort of desperate. Most glaring is right near the end, when she's sort of wrapping up the details of her recent life in a final chapter and suddenly devotes a few pages to a detailed discussion of her masturbation habits, her techniques for stimulating herself, what she fantasizes about, etc. That part feels like the octogenarian equivalent of Madonna's Sex book - and the whole "LOOK AT MY PUSSY!" vibe feels desperate at any age.
