DORIS DAY'S BRAVE FINAL DAYS

Beloved movie star Doris Day is courageously battling a painful, crippling illness as she faces her final curtain call. This week's GLOBE features a blockbuster world exclusive interview with the 88-year-old star's former aide who reveals Doris' lonely last days - and the surprise recipients he says will get her vast $34 million fortune.

Does she not have any children to give her money to?

by So says THE GLOBEreply 101/26/2013

The crippling illness is the same arthritis she's had for decades.

The story (read while standing in line at the grocery) doesn't say she is dying. She's nearing 90 and slowing down, and has been having some issues.

It's a crap story.

AMATEUR!!!!

Nope. Her only son preceded her in death.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 601/26/2013

There's no more to the article than what's posted in the OP, R3. At least online.

[quote]Does she not have any children to give her money to?

Her only son died of cancer a few years ago. He had one child, a son with his ex-wife -- the boy sided with his mother in the divorce & became estranged from his father & his grandmother.

Doris Day's animals have treated her better than most humans ever did. If she leaves her fortune for animal welfare, that would be fitting.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 801/26/2013

She loves animals so I'm sure she's giving all her money to them.

I've been near her home. Carmel is truly a beautiful place.

Is there much of a fortune to bequeath?

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1001/26/2013

R10 They said $34 million, which is pretty good considering when she made movies, the pay back then was nothing like what stars get today and the fact that she hasn't made a movie in decades.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1101/26/2013

And she built up her fortune with her TV show after sleazeball husband Marty Melcher bilked her dry - she only found out after his death.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1201/26/2013

amazing since she hasnt worked in 40 years

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1301/26/2013

Not Eunice!

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1401/26/2013

Please she's such a tool.

We're posting from "The Globe" now?

My how DL has changed.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1701/27/2013

Yo Doris, I've always appreciated you! How about throwing a couple million my way?

by So says THE GLOBEreply 1801/27/2013

"Liza Minilli" phones Doris in 2007. I'm not sure she knows Liza and it's not because of dementia...

EXCLUSIVE - My fears for my darling Doris Day: Confidante who spent 40 years with the reclusive Hollywood star, now 91, worries about the hangers-on who now share her home - as he reveals unseen photos of their time together

"We're posting from "The Globe" now? My how DL has changed."

Oh my dear, yes. Why, we used to have champagne running from gold faucets here.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2410/15/2013

Doris on Carson in 1976 on TCM. She is darling.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2512/21/2013

This article was posted in January.

Her 'final days' seem to have lasted for quite a while.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2612/21/2013

She'll probably die Christmas Day, joining the likes of Eartha Kitt and Dean Martin. I just hope that bitch Zsa Zsa doesn't steal her thunder.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2712/21/2013

Doris's grandson Ryan Melcher. Handsome guy. Looks kinda like a hot Jerry Seinfeld.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2812/21/2013

I think ME TV is doing a Doris Day Show marathon on Christmas Day.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 2912/21/2013

ff R16 and R20.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3012/21/2013

Any idea who his mother is, R28?

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3112/21/2013

According to imdb, his mother is the actress Jacqueline Carlin. In this pic, she's with Chevy Chase, whom she was also married to at one time! This should go in the Obscure Hollywood Connections thread :)

R26,

I bet she has access to stem-cell treatments. Lots of "terminally ill" people have hung around, especially with things like brain tumors.

Big Pharma has been trying to delay approval of thes drugs for as long as possible, but Japan is not playing along, since they need to clean up that nuclear problem in its population.

I'd settle for an endless loop of the quick-zoom of Doris on the spiral staircase. It would be like a video Yule log for gentlemen of a certain age.

We've just lost Peter O'Toole and Joan Fontaine.

Now would not be a good time for Doris Day (or another other older star) to depart. The public is busy with the holidays and has used up its grieving energy on the other two.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3512/22/2013

She's still here bitches and she still looks fab. And her hairstyle hasn't change a bit since 1966.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3612/22/2013

A lot of elderly die around the holidays, unfortunately.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3712/22/2013

R37, you are absolutely correct.

Three old farts have signed off this month at my building. The meat wagon is on stand by till year end. Seriously.

Doris is/was a Repuke but I still love her. Hope she can hang on past Zsa.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3812/22/2013

I thought she had already died.

by So says THE GLOBEreply 3912/22/2013

[quote]A lot of elderly die around the holidays, unfortunately.

Doesn't that happen at all times of year?

by So says THE GLOBEreply 4012/22/2013

R29 Yes, and DD even recorded a new voiceover for their promo (and she even sings a bit!)
