Was Janine Turner always as delusional as she is now?

Janine was hot n heavy with Alec Baldwin in the 80s and at one point was even engaged to him.

What killed Romney's campaign was the level of celebrity followers he had.

Victoria Jackson? Has been

Janine Turner? Has been.

Ted Nugent? Drug addict.

If he'd had a better class of celebrity follower - plus if he had been a caring compassionate human being - he might have won.

That whole Northern Exposure show was a great example of actors doing a great job of playing people extremely different than who they were in real life. Barry Corbin as Maurice Minnifield, prime example, gay silverfox playing neoconservative homophobe. Janine Turner, playing progressive live-and-let-live independent woman who threw off the shackles of wealthy Grosse Point to live in Alaska, in real life actually a lot like Maurice Minnifield.

This post from Janine's website tagged 'Alec Baldwin' But he is not mentioned at all, except the tag.

I have had to listen to it for years, on sets, at dinners, in rehearsals, in the make-up chair, at award ceremonies. I have had to sit back and hear the judgmental, hot, mostly uninformed and biased rants of the Hollywood liberals breath down my neck and suffocate the air from the room. Usually, the rant was so hostile, I was afraid to speak up, or it was so ridiculous, I thought it futile to reply. The liberal Hollywood elite, who stand firmly on their right to be heard, their right to express, their right to persuade through art – blatantly and arrogantly deny that same freedom, that same right to anyone who may disagree with them. And like most liberals, they cannot see it and/or refuse to deviate from denial.

I sat through many ceremonies, and one Emmy ceremony in particular that was embroiled with one anti-conservative, anti-Republican remark after another. I remember sitting slumped in my chair just counting the moments until I could be released from the lion’s den. There I was – a captive to their point of view and solely their point of view. I was a hostage, like the American populace is a hostage, to the slick, slanderous and seductive permeation of the liberal agenda.

I couldn’t wait to leave Hollywood. I always felt like I was in a bubble when I lived there or that I was swirling around, being buffeted about, in a stifling, tropical snow globe. It was like that fabulous Jim Carey scene where he was in a boat and beating on the sky, on the set of the world, wanting to get out. I don’t remember the movie… but I remember the scene and the feeling it invoked.

Hollywood. They think America is inherently bad. They think America is an embarrassment. Yet they are gorging themselves on the American dream.

Hollywood, the surreal world, the pretend world, the ironic world where free enterprise, their show business, is displayed, executed and embraced in a riveting way - yet the inhabitants regurgitate on capitalists. Hollywood, where stars, movie producers, writers and agents actively seek glamour, money, power and fame. They unabashedly embrace fast cars, facelifts and fly in private jets. They drink fine wines and insist on free spirits and are the ultimate connoisseurs who insist on living liberty at large.

They deplore censorship. Yet, they embrace tyrants such as Hugo Chavez. They annihilate Wall Street. Yet, they run to see how many millions their movies have grossed. They think ObamaCare works nicely for those poor people in the “fly over states.” Yet, they demand only the top doctors for themselves. They live lush. Yet, they ignore debt. What debt? They think Socialism is a nicety whose time has come – yet, not for them.

If you build it, they will come. Imagine the collapse of Hollywood’s playground. Imagine the free fall of their financial field. Imagine the march of despotism on their freedom of speech. Imagine the strangling of their rights and riches.

They would howl like a lone wolf in a western. They would beg like Scarlett O’Hara. They would scream like the Wicked Witch of the West. However, instead of screaming, “I’m melting, I’m melting.” They would scream, “Not me! Not me!”

Wasn't Miss Turner's daughter "born out of wedlock" with a still mysterious daddy?

btw Janine Turner replaced Genie Francis as Laura on General Hospital.

Janine left after one year because she was promised the lead opposite John Travolta in "Staying Alive"

But for some reason things fell apart and she was replaced by Finola Hughes, also of General Hospital.

by Anonymousreply 2011/11/2012

She's a joke in Dallas, where she currently lives. Miss Christian Golddigger got pregnant out-of-wedlock with Jerry Jones' son's baby. The gossip in Dallas society was that she saw dollar signs, since her acting career was going nowhere, and tricked him into getting her pregnant. She's been riding that gravy train ever since. She's made the moves on every rich bachelor in town, but no one wants anything to do with her.

by Anonymousreply 2111/11/2012

[quote]She seems to have lost it in the last 10 years. My guess is that she wasnt fully indoctrinated into Repug madness

This sounds about right. It might go back further. I've read that she comes from a run-of-the mill conservative family with roots in Texas. She was in a relationship first with Troy Aikman, I believe, and then the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' son whom she became pregnant with her daughter. I don't think that the father has ever acknowledged paternity and she's refused to name him, AFAIK. It may be a condition to receive child support. There was Dallas gossip that it was her wish to marry him and become the matron of Dallas society, but it never happened. I think this is where she became unhinged and picked up the bible and the right wing lunacy. Baptist guilt about having a child out of wedlock drove her nuts maybe?

Who knows? It's just a theory. Have any of her ex-costars or exes spoken about her? She had to have had the political rhetoric toned way down or pooh, poohed her family's conservatism for a while when she was modeling in NY. It wouldn't have gone over well there. Especially not with Alec Baldwin

Not even the closeted Christian ones in need of a beard? There must be someone in need of her marital services who can become a loving father to her daughter.

by Anonymousreply 2511/11/2012

Having a kid out of wedlock is what drove her over the edge. I have a bootleg copy of the entire Northern Exposure series complete with tons of extras, including interviews with Janine, both before and after the series ended. The contrast is startling, you can literally see her enthusiasm and happiness completely replaced by a serious, conservative and blatantly hypocritical tone.

Shortly after she had her daughter she wrote a book, and the promotional interviews she gives on morning talk shows are completely different from the interview she gives on The 700 Club. On the talk shows she still retains a certain measure of her former exuberance and charm, but on The 700 Club she's like a completely different person. She mentions God at least two or three times in every sentence, and her enthusiasm for the book is replaced by a serious, kind of desperate attempt to convince the audience that she was called upon by God to write it. Watching the interviews back to back you can literally see how phony and hypocritical she is, and you can see how easily she turned on the switch and became the humorless shrew she is today.

I didn't know this. So Janine Turner not only had sex outside of wedlock, but a child as well?

And yet she is judging everyone else and quoting the Bible on her Twitter feed every 2 minutes?

It's always the Republican Conservatives that scream Liberals are uniformed. This coming from a Party based on an invisible man in the Sky, beliefs that rape victims have Wonder Woman uterus's, that Pro-Life excludes the death penalty and war, that four Embassy deaths is a national tragedy yet 100,000 inocent Iraqi men, women and children dead is "Shock & Awe!" and that New Orleans and New York underwater is merely just a lot of rain.

My sister's a right-wing evangelical loon, and a friend of her's posted this on Facebook the day after the election:

"Stricken seems to describe me tonight. I find myself praying for our country like never before. And yet, "I kowo Who i have believed/and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I've committed unto Him against that day!" I know where my true hope is placed.

16 people replied, all crazies, this one is quite typical:

A good customer of mine came into the store today (he ministers in the prisons...) He said..."I am surrounded by the army of God, what can happen to me?"

Not R45, but a fan of "Northern Exposure": During the original run of the show, there were always stories about Morrow's diva behavior. He was a complete jerk.

Also, yes, Janine Turner's always been delusional.

And she sucked on "Northern Exposure". Terrible casting. She was supposed to be a rich girl from Grosse Pointe. Ha.

by Anonymousreply 5404/19/2014

There were interviews during her NE years (TV Guide i think was one) that said she was a traditional, Texan, conservative Republican. She didn't go off on rants the way she does now, but she's always had these views. She's not some poor girl (and certainly no great talent) who has been corrupted.

I remember watching one of the first E! red carpets for the Emmys, and she was one of the first arrivals (I forget who her date was), and , seriously, I would be surprised if her IQ hit triple digits. Even for a Hollywood ho bag she was a serious ditz.

So, in other words, she was always a hypocritical Republicunt, but as long as she had some sort of career she didn't talk too much about it. Once that was kaput, however, she Plus there's money to be made in cultivating that niche.

Her speech at the Republican convention was...well, I really have no words, actually.

As for the part of her blog post r49 cited....I hate to admit there is a lot of truth in that. But her belief system is hardly the solution.

by Anonymousreply 5504/19/2014

R52 , I think you're on to something. Mrs. Turner has never truly gotten over Young Alec's thick Long Island cock! That's why she hasn't stopped talking about him in 30 years. Let's not forget what a smoldering hot piece of ass Alec was in his day. Definitely hot enough to drive a girl bat shit crazy if she lost him.

Alec became a very vocal Liberal so OF COURSE Janine would go on to become a Loud & Proud Wingnut. Anything to get back at him for taking that cock away!

Nose job or no? I've never seen "before" pics but it has that "look." Although it flatters her face well - sometimes (occasionally) a nose job can look kind of fake yet still very much improve the looks of someone (ie Michelle Pfeiffer).

And again, she was always a stupid conservative redneck. Stop making it like she was this cool girl who was corrupted. She was never cool.
