Debbie Reynolds Is A Cunt

Wow, listen to this Mike Douglas Show with Shelley Winters.

She calls Shelley fat, she calls her old, she says that SHE IS NOT promiscuous meaning that Shelley is a slut.

Her "goody-two-shoes" act may be real but she's a cunt.

She's dead, OP, so "was" would be a more appropriate verb.

Shelley drove Debbie crazy when they filmed What's The Matter With Helen, so I suspect Debbie was just paying her back.

by Anonymousreply 201/03/2021

She knows why.

by Anonymousreply 301/03/2021

Actually what Deb says are statements of fact. Shelley was fat, old and by her own admission (read her autobiographies - though I think half of what is written is pure fantasy) a slut.

by Anonymousreply 401/03/2021

I'm surprised at how Debbie tore into Shelley and Shelley just lets it go.

But evidently Shelley Winters and Lauren Bacall used to rip into each other every chance they got, pelting each other with truly vicious one-liners. I guess after Bacall, Debbie was a cream puff.

OT, but I was having breakfast at a BH deli, Nate n Als next to a table of about ten with Shelley holding court. She was so funny, wild and fun. Suddenly, she jumps up...literally doubled up in laughter and YELLS...”I gotta tingle” and races to the ladies room. Such a cute moment and everyone in the restaurant is laughing.

Ok, I guess you’d have to have been there.

Debbie was always a cunt. She destroyed Carrie. They waited to pull the plug on the old bitch until Carrie was dead, so Debby would grab all the headlines. Even in death, she was a cunt.

When the show came on, Debbie Reynolds did a big interview in the TV GUIDE. She was very dismissive of Lucille Ball and her show, and began to list of the differences..... Debbie is this....Lucy is not.....she listed about six things.

The next week TV GUIDE printed a letter from a viewer in that section that read:

"She forgot something in her list....Lucy is funny.....Debbie Reynolds is not!"

R16 If Amazon can dig up the whole run of Jim Nabor's short-lived 1978 talk show (about 75 episodes total), why can't they bring back Debbie's sitcom.

Beneath the fluffy blonde wigs and ingratiating smile, Debbie was hard as nails. Shelley came across as a tough dame but inside was quite vulnerable and needy. Interesting contrast.

Oh please, Debbie sold herself to a fugly millionaire for $ecurity (though Carrie said he had a big cock). As (her) luck would have it though, he spent her money on hookers- then died heavily in debt.

Does anyone else remember the LARRY KING LIVE episode right after Sinatra died, in which Larry gathered the likes of Don Rickles, Vic Damone, Steve Lawrence and Our Debbie?

I'd kill to see it again -- specifically the moment when Rickles (uncharacteristically, though understandably, subdued throughout) talks about how Sinatra wasn't particularly warm/affectionate, only to be interrupted by Debbie, who chirps something like "Well, Don, I always found Frank very friendly with women, and with some male friends like Steve -- maybe he just didn't like YOU."

After a beat, Rickles smiles grimly and says, "Thanks, Debbie. God bless."

I recently watched an interview with Tab Hunter, and when he was asked about Debbie Reynolds, he described her as "off the wall" and "pretty out there"; "she called a spade a spade." I imagine that people who knew Debbie knew exactly what they were going to get--direct and to the point snarkiness.

Rickles comes off worse in that anecdote. Someone just died and your impulse is to say on national television: "He wasn't warm. Well, not to her. Well, not to us."?

Debbie never really was able to overcome the stigma of being dumped by Eddie for Liz. She was the Jennifer Anniston of her age.

Talented to be sure but with a goody-goody image. When I was in Las Vegas years ago I found her costume museum in the phone book. It was in an old 50s era hotel near the Visitors Center. The patrons looked to be old glam pots in their 90s but no museum. It had been closed for several years but for some reason still had a listing in the phone book.

I don't remember the name of the hotel at the time but when she was the owner it was the Debbie Reynolds Hotel.

R57, I remember staying at the Debbie Reynolds' Hollywood Hotel with my parents back in the '90s. It was on Convention Center Drive, and was formerly The Paddlewheel Hotel & Casino, which was a kid friendly establishment that my parents tried to book, only to find it had been bought by Debbie. There was indeed a costume museum, which we toured, and the night's entertainment was Debbie herself, who sang and cracked corny and suggestive jokes and regaled us with anecdotes from Hollywood's yesteryear. My parents loved her, but to me, she was a lady past her prime still trying to be sexy in sequined gown much too tight for her plump frame.

by Anonymousreply 6001/09/2021

[R51]/[R52]/[R53], I certainly didn't say that that was the only thing Rickles said. I was zeroing in on a particular moment. It was very obvious throughout how deeply saddened he'd been by his friend's passing.

by Anonymousreply 6101/10/2021

I saw Debbie Reynolds open for Don Rickles in some casino Resort an hour or so from San Diego. One of my high school friends who lives in San Diego saw an ad for it, called me cause she knew I’d love it, and I was on the next plane there!

It was wild. We were the youngest people there by decades. It happened to be the night that Carrie had a psychotic break while performing on a gay cruise and Debbie sent a plane to fetch her. Coincidentally, another good friend was on that cruise and was in the audience when Carrie flipped out.

Anyway, Debbie didn’t let Carrie’s breakdown keep her from the stage!

She was a complete whack job. And her act was completely canned with zero sincerity. Loved every minute!

Afterward, a couple of guys from Don Rickles band asked us to hang out so we spent the night at the casino bar with them. They told us great stories about touring with Rickles. They had been with him for years.

Sorry but I try to wedge this story in every chance I get...

Someone upthread said that narcissist Debbie ruined Carrie's life. I bet a lot of children of Narcs end up damaged. And a lot of ppl in show biz are narcs.

Vanessa Redgrave was one, I think. I always remember this story about her and her daughter Natasha Richardson: At a dinner they both attended, someone asked Vanessa what it was like for her to have dinner with Bill Clinton – Vanessa said, "The real question is what it was like for him to have dinner with ME!"

Natasha deadpanned, “See what I’ve had to live with?”

by Anonymousreply 6301/11/2021

Carrie has talked about being the child of two stars and feeling she came up short. With all the pressure of having success in Hollywood and having those problems it isn't the least bit surprising she was dulling the pain with drugs and booze. She wasn't as attractive as her parents and didn't have half their talent. Still she could come up with a funny line and seemed like a pleasant amiable individual who had a lot to deal with.

by Anonymousreply 6401/11/2021

It sounds like Natasha was funny. Carrie's funny. I think growing up with narcissistic parents makes you funny. (John Cleese once said his mother was the most hateful person he'd ever known and she lived to be 100 or whatever and said he thought she'd never die - he was in therapy for years, trying to get over her - even married his psychiatrist, and his first wife became a psychologist - Connie Booth, who he co-wrote Fawlty Towers with....

Sorry.... many many stories of comedians and their creepy mothers. David Letterman said his mother came to his standup when he was starting out - she went back stage and told him, "Dave, you're just not funny."

by Anonymousreply 6501/11/2021

Sorry Connie - she became a psychotherapist! Whoa. That's the psychobabble big-time!!

I say that with love - I've spent 50 years trying to get over my own Narcissistic single mom. (I don't recommend having one if you can avoid it)

Debbie was a sucker who acted haughty when she was in the mood, but would turn to mush if you challenged her. She saw herself as a brave victim with a lot of talent. She was very needy, and would have strangers over and get clingy because she hated being alone. But she was, in her own way, honest and a good fried. It was good to stay away, though, when she was drinking too much.

I know.

by Anonymousreply 6701/11/2021

As for Shelley, she always was a blousy, vague, exuberant and easily depressed person. Up and down. She developed the persona more as she aged and finally it was just the way she always was. I wouldn't have wanted to work with her. As a friend she was absolute gold - a very early supporter of gay people, a defender of Marilyn at her worst, generous, silly, unexpectedly thoughtful. "Slut" is a shaming, sexist term. It wasn't Shelley's fault that she liked sex and enjoyed it (and played with it for her career, especially early), while Debbie was a lesbian at heart who never really came to terms with herself fully.

Yes, I'm R67 and, again, I do know.
