...Mamie Van Doren...

Someone needs to give her a reality show, I'd watch it.

by Anonymousreply 4711/10/2014

She's so bad I adore her -- and her body is pretty good for 79. I'll have to try the Mamietage!

...with Skip E. Lowe as her sidekick.

And you know who she looks a hell of a lot better than as a near-octogenarian? ANGELYNE. OMGWTFBBQ!

Mamie is a national treasure. Like the Liberty Bell or Forest Lawn.

You know, I'd watch a show like "Old Hollywood Whores: Starring Mamie and Angelyne". %0D %0D It'd be fascinating, and a step up from most of TLCs current programming.

Mamie Van Doren. Hehe!

Mamie was such a hot little number on "What's My Line?" It's a shame she lacks class.

She's a nightmare and looks like a a complete hag with her big 'ol buck teeth and saggy tits. I wouldn't even say that if she wasn't a complete pain in the ass and cheap tipper.

Dear God PLEASE tell me that Angelyne is wearing underwear in those pics...

However, i bet Mamie had the pleasure to sleep with many hunks apart from the fugly ones. She seemed to knew how to give a cheap pleasure to her man and that's not contemptible at all.

Mamie was delightful on the Jack Benny program that pops up now and then on Antenna TV. She and Dennis Day sang a spirited duet of You Make Me Feel So Young.

Mamie Van Doren and husband

Hmm R14, a like the idea of a woman to sing this song. Yep!

Didn't Blanche have slippers or something that were chewed up by one of Rose's visiting pets?

by Anonymousreply 1603/14/2013

Sorry, meant to say slippers FROM THE MAMIE VAN DOREN COLLECTION.

R16 someone should answer you if they know but sorry i don't know the answer of your question!


Take a photo instead. You probably have seen it before but it's better than nothing!

Two fun couples: Mamie van Doren and date. Mickey Hargitay (Mr Universe 1955) and Jayne Mansfield. Jayne's eyes look like they're clocking Mamie's cleavage.

So guys, who do you prefer? Mamie Van Doren or Jayne Mansfield?

by Anonymousreply 1903/15/2013

Mamie Van Doren i think. Jayne was beginning to age badly.

R19, Mamie's date is her husband, band leader Ray Anthony, who, in certain shots, looked like a down market Cary Grant. Anthony, a close friend of Hugh Hefner, would appear from time to time (much older and no longer looking like Grant) on "The Girls Next Door."

'Rock and I sat at a table with Joan Crawford and her date. Joan was pounding down the booze with a vengeance, eyeing me from time to time the way a barracuda eyes a crippled grouper. I was a young, newly-minted starlet. She was the old guard, holding desperately to the last remnants of what then was glamour. She snubbed me totally except to loudly proclaim that I must have diligently fucked my way to the threshold of stardom where I then stood.'-Mamie Van Doren

Marilyn(Monroe) nodded and looked lost in her own thoughts for a moment. When she spoke again, it sounded like an utterance in a church. "I would love to have a child. I'm trying to adopt, you know. But all the agencies look at Well, these men in blue suits say, oh so very logically: ‘What kind of a life would that be for a child? Marriages, divorces, the men in your life, Miss Monroe...' I don't know what to say to them, Mamie."

My son was still suffering through the aftermath of my divorce from his father, Ray Anthony. The disapproval of the "suits" at Perry's private schools and the like over my lifestyle was still in the future. I didn't have any suggestions for her. Marilyn had been recently divorced from playwright Arthur Miller. They had split up after he had met a still photographer on the set of The Misfits. The wounds were still fresh.

She(Marilyn Monroe) downed her third drink. The ice cubes clinked and she set the glass aside. She slipped off her sunglasses and looked at me hard. There might have been hundreds of stories flashing behind her eyes. When she spoke at last, it was a tipsy slur."Do your best, Mamie, not to fall in love with anybody in government. Because after they fuck you—they fuck you."

Mamie on Dating Howard Hughes

Todd: When you were still quite young, you met and dated Howard Hughes. What was that like?

Mamie: I was 15 when I met Howard Hughes. He'd be a pedophile today. (Laughs) He was growing a beard to cover his wounds from his plane accident. He had a nice body, was very sweet to me, and was very Southern. He had a good sense of humor. He put me in 4-5 movies. He loved it from the waist up. He was a fanatic about breasts. We didn't know that at the time.

From South Dakota to Howard Hughes, look at how my life changed!

I was in a beauty pageant at Palm Springs . I won the contest, he was in the audience, and I didn't know it at the time. He owned RKO.

I went back to high school after the movies and I couldn't stand it. I started taking drama lessons. All I had were guys trying to bang me in high school. I was making enough money to buy a new MG.

He (Hughes) was quite strange. He was spoiled. He wanted to do what he wanted. If said you won't do that, he said, "I won't see you anymore." He was good in his way.

I thought Leonardo DiCaprio was good in The Aviator. He should have gotten the (Academy) award. He was so marvelous. He (Hughes) never had a romance with Hepburn. I don't think he bedded her. Katherine was a strong woman, they added all that. He dated Ava Gardner. His big love affair was (actress) Faith Domergue.

Mamie on Dating James Dean

Todd: I understand you dated James Dean?

Mamie: I had a mind of my own. I was a maverick. I went out with guys. I wasn't into actors; I thought you could find the original item. Acting to me is kind of pussy.

I was impressed, but at the time he wasn't a big name. He was different. I went on a motorcycle ride with him. He never called me back. We did a little necking on Mulholland Drive. There were no houses up there back then.

My favorite was kissing Clark Gable in Teacher's Pet. They had to take it out. Maybe it was because he was in his 50s and I was in my 20s.

So Mamie famously dates Henry Kissinger? Richard Carpenter's voice carried during a dip in the sound check at a White House performance while he was asking Karen to identify the whore sitting with Kissinger.

Why did she divorce Charles Van Doren?

The song is not bad at all and her voice is surprisingly ok. The video clip is...well under discussion.


by Anonymousreply 3303/18/2013

Omg, that woman is totally unhinged, seriously! R33, gimme a break, the video clip and Mamie's presence are totally ridiculous. She grew up and her mind didn't seem to make a progress. She is sooo lame!

Great interview at the link-she's not stupid at all. Definitely had more beauty, brains and singing ability than Monroe or Mansfield.

by Anonymousreply 3511/06/2014

She used to be a conservative xtian but is now a liberal buddhist. She loved when things changed from the 50s to the 60s and she felt more free to do what she wanted.

by Anonymousreply 3611/06/2014

I'm intrigued yet find it sad she's still shallow but given her interviews, she's not an idiot lol not sure what to make of her

by Anonymousreply 3711/06/2014

I must be the only person who thinks this because I've never heard anybody say it but Jayne Mansfield was a delightful comic actress.

So she won the looks lottery. It shouldn't be held against her like two milk bottles.

by Anonymousreply 3811/06/2014

Joan Olander - got her name from a combination of CHarles Van Doren and then First Lady Mamie Eisenhower.

Jayne was a much better comic actress. Watch her in "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter" and watch Mamie in "Sex Kittens Go to College" (or any of her Albert Zugsmith epics).

Mamie once said that Doris Day had all of her best scenes cut out of "Teacher's Pet". It's still my contention that Doris didn't even know Mamie was in the movie.

by Anonymousreply 3911/06/2014

Anyone read her book from the 80s? any good? As a younger gay I never heard of her until recently, though I knew of Monroe and Mansfield. Van Doren may have been #3 but she at least got to live a nice long life free of substance abuse and mental illness.

by Anonymousreply 4011/07/2014

I guess her book is just porn. If you like that, you will love it.

by Anonymousreply 4111/08/2014

Mamie enjoyed some choice cock in her day, especially Steve Cochran's massive sausage.

by Anonymousreply 4211/08/2014

so her book is all about who she slept with?

This is Madonna in 10 years.

R39, funny post.

They had one scene together, in a nightclub where Van Doren does a sexy rock n roll number; later Day does a little parody of her to Gable's amusement, but then he sticks up for her.

by Anonymousreply 4511/10/2014

R38, Yes, Jayne was a good comedic actress, but Hollywood quickly grew tired of her shameless PR stunts and wrote her off as a joke.

by Anonymousreply 4611/10/2014

Mamie claimed in her autobiography that Rock Hudson fucked her on her kitchen floor.
