Marilu Henner: crazy?

Yes or no?

by Anonymousreply 8507/25/2014

Perfectly sane, thank you very much!

And I will NEVER forget you asked!!!

Irrelevant these days, but that parlor trick with the dates is cool.

She actually had some talent. She's very funny in the episode of "Taxi" where Elaine gets the horrible haircut by the master stylist, played by Ted Danson.

by Anonymousreply 309/28/2012

She was really good on Taxi and a few other things. Gorgeous, too. She was carrying a few extra lbs on Taxi, but I think she looked good chunky.

Let's just say you wouldn't want to be opposite her in a knife fight.

I read some of her first memoir. She's super slutty and quite proud of it. She does seem kind of nutty. These days she puts out self-help books about nutrition and weight loss, but I wouldn't listen to her advice, or ANY celebrity's advice, on anything.

by Anonymousreply 609/29/2012

She's kind of new agey, but she's not crazy. She's also really sharp.

She was simply dreadful in the tour of the revival of "Annie Get Your Gun."

Bitch could barely carry a tune in a Birkin bag.

I wonder how her kids turned out. Several years ago she wrote some parenting books as though she was an expert on child rearing. Her theme was "tough love" and one of the books was called "I refuse to raise a brat."

I can't stand self righteous celebs who try to "life coach" everyone else. I'd laugh like hell if her now adult kids were fucked up.

Worked with her for over a year and love her. She's a hard worker, a kind person and yes, a little crazy. Great dancer, good actress and so-so singer at best. Annie Get Your Gun was a big mistake, but she was VG in Chicago.

Her kid nutrition book is really quite good. I've given it to friends who raved about it.

I'm shocked the DL is hating on a book about refusing to raise a brat!!

R16 - what time period did you work with her?

by Anonymousreply 1709/29/2012

She has that brain disorder where she remembers everything she sees, ever. She consults on the show Fringe, I think. Pretty funny.

by Anonymousreply 1809/29/2012

In her memoir she talks at length about her long on-again, off again relationship with "Johnny" Travolta.

According to her he was quite the stud, and they had a very active sex life. They would hole up in hotel rooms "doing the things Johnny liked to do (butt-fucking?)." They finally parted ways when Travolta sadly admitted that he couldn't give her what she needed in a relationship (like a heterosexual husband?). I tend to think that it was Travolta's liking for homosex that prevented him from making a committment to her. Of course he married so quickly it would make your head spin after one of his male lovers sold his story to the National Enquirer.

I wonder if she's ever commented on the gay rumors about him? Probably not. But she'd probably say something like he was REALLY heterosexual with ME, anyway!

Early 90's, R17.

I had very little to do with her but did interact with her once a week or so for over a year. I was exactly the kind of nobody most stars forget. I've run into her 4 times over the past 20 years and she (of course) remembers my name, where we worked together, what my partner does, etc etc. It must be bizarre for her, but she uses it for good, (in my experience) and I like her.

Her kids would meet the DL standard of polite, well-behaved children from the 50's!

by Anonymousreply 2009/30/2012

She has a lot of good advice.

Who did she have kids with?

by Anonymousreply 2209/30/2012

She was actually one of the first public figures to talk about the alleged benefits of low carb eating/food combining. I remember her coming on Joan Rivers way back in the early 90's describing her diet plan.

She also would have been a perfect Jean Grey/"Phoenix" if the X-Men film that was planned in the early 1980's had gotten off the ground.

Just a scenario for discussion: let's say that 30 years ago Marilu and I filmed some episodes of the "$100K Pyramid", and we seemed to get along fine, but what if then -just for instance - I bumped into her at an Exxon station and she had no idea who I was. And what if, possibly, I explained to her that we filmed Dick's pyramid game together in '84, and she said something like "No, sorry, you must have me confused with someone else."

Would something like that offend you? You know, if it were to happen?

R20 doesn't she claim to have one of those rare memories where she remembers every day of her life?

She was lying, R125.

I vaguely remember Tony Danza admitting on Howard Stern years ago that he used to give her anal. I think most of those "Taxi" guys had her.

I loved that cheesy male-strippers-stalked-by-a-crazed-killer TV movie "Ladykillers" that she starred in in the late '80s. Her male co-star was none other than "Melrose Place"'s Thomas Calabro!

by Anonymousreply 2812/31/2012

Mmmmmmmmmm, Thomas Calabro.

by Anonymousreply 2912/31/2012

No, OP. I don't think she's crazy at all.

She's a creepy scientologist.

by Anonymousreply 3112/31/2012

I thought I remember her her bragging in some interview about sleeping with most of her Taxi costars....Tony Danza, Judd Hirsh, Jeff Conaway, even Christopher Lloyd.

But, surprisingly, not Danny DeVito.

Memory is the foundation of learning. She has perfect memory. Yet she's an actress and not even an A-Lister. She never put her brain to work in something that most can do without perfect memory.

by Anonymousreply 3505/05/2013

She sure is. She thinks dairy is the cause of all health problems.

by Anonymousreply 3605/05/2013

Her memory is un real. She can remember every moment of her life, what date it was, what she was wearing etc...even day of week.

by Anonymousreply 3705/05/2013

I met her a few times and worked w/ her peripherally in the business. She's very bright, very organized, very motivated, a talented dancer. She had two boys w/ a Jewish TV director. She was raised Catholic in Chicago. Her parents died young (50ish) due to poor health, poor diets. She had a weight problem growing up and in her 30s, 40s really researched good nutritional practices for better health for her. It worked and she's spread the Gospel since. Her amazing, sharp memory is absolutely true and uncanny. She's warm and funny. You would not want to be on her bad side though. Fiery redhead and all.

by Anonymousreply 3805/05/2013

It's almost supernatural to have that gift. I'm not sure I would want that kind of memory. There are things in my past I want to forget. I don't know how she deals with remembering every detail of the worst days of her life.

by Anonymousreply 3905/05/2013

R38 - She was kind of chubby on Taxi. Gorgeous, but had a few extra pounds.

by Anonymousreply 4005/05/2013

I will give her this: she had the ONLY truly funny moment in the film version of "Noises Off" when she races through backstage in a panic and onto stage beaming and saying her line as if all is good. Okay, maybe you had to be there but then you'd have to watch the movie, so not worth it.

I honestly think all her "dating" co-stars didn't help her career, made her look like a bimbo... but really she was a good 70s era comedienne.

by Anonymousreply 4105/05/2013

"I thought I remember her her bragging in some interview about sleeping with most of her Taxi costars....Tony Danza, Judd Hirsh, Jeff Conaway, even Christopher Lloyd."

Wasn't Jeff Conaway gay? Doesn't DL think Tony Danza is gay too?

Christopher Lloyd?! eeek! She certainly was a horny wench! While waiting around on the "Taxi" set, she probably humped the sofa in her trailer!

by Anonymousreply 4205/05/2013

I agree with not wanting that memory. I have an insanely good memory. It helped in school for sure and it's come in handy. But remembering all the damage of my childhood? I hate it. If mine were as good as hers, I would just loathe everyday.

by Anonymousreply 4305/05/2013

I met her when I was an usher for the premier of the film, Rugrats, at the Chinese theatre. She was with her little children (years ago) and complained that there weren't any ass gaskets in the ladies room.

You should have seen her on Celebrity Apprentice tonight - she was acting like being on that show was the most important thing in her life!

She continues to do a lot of guest appearances in sitcoms and even some dramas. She was even in an episode of NUMB3RS with Judd.

Bob Costas testing Marilu's memory asks her what she was doing the day Armstrong stepped on the moon.

Kind of abad question, as everyone above a certain age would remember what they were doing.

But Marilu's answer was unexpected. - that's the day she lost her virginity.

Marilu is on a roll! Guest starring on the top-rated Two and Half Men!

A friend did her diet and it did work but he fell off the wagon and went back to fat

I liked her in Taxi and some other TV appearances, but I don't really believe her memory claim - or anyone that would make it.

Did they explain on 2.5 Men how she could be Hilary Duff's grandmother? Were they supposed to be from Kentucky?

by Anonymousreply 5505/10/2013

[quote]Did they explain on 2.5 Men how she could be Hilary Duff's grandmother? Were they supposed to be from Kentucky?

It's possible. Marilu is 61 and Hilary is 25. If Marilu's character had a baby at 18, and then that child had a baby at 18, Marilu would have been 36 at that time. Subtract 36 from 61, and you get 25 - Hilary's age.

very funny but she looks anorexic in that clip.

R61- If not anorexic, much thinner.

by Anonymousreply 6212/04/2013

If she is crazy, she would have every right to be so. 60 Minutes did a story about people like her who remember everything. One of the other people who had that gift (?) of remembering everything, said that you remember every bad thing like it was just yesterday. So every death, every breakup, every sad moment of your life was just as fresh as if it had just happened, even if it was 20 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 6312/04/2013

yeah, but she gets to relive Judd Hirsch going down on her.

Who did Marilu sleep with? Judd and Jeff obviously. Tony? Danny?

Whoever stated she has a brain disorder is very wrong. In fact she is gifted.

Her energy used to drive me nuts but now that I'm aware of her condition I find her fascinating.

I recall she wrote a book or article that Travolta and her were having sex all over the place. Pure fiction.

by Anonymousreply 6912/04/2013

per Marilu only Tony and Judd.

by Anonymousreply 7012/04/2013

She won over Bebe in Chicago so that's gotta say something about her personality.

Saw her in a play called Social Security back in the....80's? She took a role that Marlo Thomas couldn't do anything with and turned it into something funny.

Count me among her fans.
