Marilu Henner: crazy?

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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?

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
