Raquel Welch has vanished from social media. Could something be wrong or has she gone all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond,

Raquel Welch seems to have disappeared from social media with no acknowledgement of her 80th birthday. Her Facebook account seems to have been deleted, no Instagram posts in over 2 years and no tweets in 18 months. Now of course she might just have got bored or fed up with all social media and chose to stop posting .

But I have a feeling , an intuition that something is wrong especially with nothing for her 80th birthday in September. Perhaps a serious health problem or vanity because she doesn't want to be seen in public when she can no longer maintain the standard of her look. I believe Lana Turner became reclusive in part for this reason. I am wondering if maybe she has become all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond in her twilight years.? Any dataloungers heard any rumours or gossip about this or has speculation to share?

Did she vanish from social media all at once? Sometimes if someone is sick of, say, Twitter, they'll keep Facebook or Instagram. If she went cold turkey on all of them then maybe she lost her password or just got sick of the social media bullshit (cancel culture or the general negativity of it especially in an election/covid year).

For those of you who have little experience with the aged let an old guy fill you in. Someone 80 years old, even someone who looks as good as RW, never knows from day to day what physical or mental disaster is going to befall them. They can be doing great one day and a day later they can be at death's door. The internal workings of an 80 year old body, no matter how good it looks on the outside, can fail at the drop of a hat. Someone that old can become completely incapacitated in just a day or so or literally go to bed feeling as well as an 80 can feel, and be dead by morning.

I'm 67 and trust me, I'm already at the point where I never know what new physical problem I'm going to wake up to the next day.

It's been said a million times, but I'll say it again. Getting old is not for sissies.

I think a woman like Raquel who put so much emphasis on her looks is a prime candidate for disappearing if she cannot appear in public looking beautiful and vital. Some female stars have a lot of personality and humor so they can transition to great old broad who can still command and mesmerize an audience but that's not Raquel.

Ann-Margret had a longer career but Raquel was bigger in her prime than A-M was in hers. A-M actually audition for Irene Molloy in the movie of "Hello, Dolly!" That's how much A-M's star had dipped by only the mid to late 1960s. "Carnal Knowledge" and "Tommy" were successes for her but even the 1970s was pretty spotty. Raquel was solidly a movie star from "Fantastic Voyage" in the mid 1960s through to her early 1980s firing from... "Cannery Row," I think.

In 1974, Joan Crawford agreed to host an event honoring her friend Rosalind Russell at the Rainbow Room. Roz was looking bloated from cortisone injections for rheumatoid arthritis and had also recently learned she had cancer. When this photo of the two of them taken that evening appeared in newspapers, Joan was mortified at how bad she looked. Roz reportedly just laughed it off, but Joan said, "If that's the way I look, then they won't see me anymore." She retreated to her New York apartment and never made another public appearance, dying there in 1977.

r163 I like to think that sometimes I am very shrewd and bang on the money!!

Something is up with Raquel I can just sense it. Her younger sister died in her seventies in recent years.Perhaps Raquel is suffering health problems too but at a slightly older age?

Any update on Raquel? I think she's one of Hollywood's last true sex goddesses.

If you took a moment to actually look:

"Raquel Welch will turn 81 in several months and she is still as stunning as ever. She doesn’t appear publicly as much as she did in her heyday, but recent photos show that she is doing well.

Welch’s last on-screen appearance came in 2017 in the television series Date My Dad. She also appeared in the 2017 film How to Be a Latin Lover.

Towards the twilight of her acting career, Raquel ventured into the beauty business. She experienced moderate success with a jewelry and skincare line, but it was her wig venture that really took off.

The latest in her line of wigs is the Raquel Welch Spring 2021 collection. “I like what I do,” Raquel said of her shift to entrepreneurship. “I actually enjoy being me and I make a very good living and I’m happy.”

So where are these "recent photos"?

Raquel is counting her money and living life, OP. I'm thinking she gently and discreetly slid into retirement. How's her children? Has she any grandchildren? Anything?

She was stunning on "What's My Line?" back in the year one. Listen for the catcalls of a sort along with the rather thunderous applause-I guarantee you it's mainly men and some of my people fearlessly joining in.

The YouTube uploads of that show are delightful.

She was dismissed as nothing more than a sexpot -but she really proved them wrong, doing excellent work on Broadway and in her later films. I rewatched Myra Breckinridge a few weeks ago, and her performance was the highlight of the film (I know that's not saying too much -but she really was great). Even more interesting was listening to her commentary track afterward.

I watched Flareup yesterday. She was stunningly sexy.

Physically, she's one of the most influential movie stars ever. Cindy Crawford basically stole her look, as did many other models and you can still see photo shoots with actresses which scream Raquel.

When she took over for Bacall in "Woman of the Year" on Broadway, the cast and crew were naturally relieved...at first.

Sometime later t-shirts were made for the crew that said "Bring Back Betty!" Imagine.

I've noticed Welch's juice in short supply on grocery store shelves. She may be attending to family financial concerns.
