1970s Pinup Queen Farrah Fawcett Anniversary

1970s pinup queen, and not so dumb blond actress, Farrah Fawcett died five years ago this morning. Farrah, who was best known for her part on Charlie’s Angels, passed away due to cancer.

Since I like a good pinup queen, I love the story behind this famous print. She was one smart cookie -

To promote her instant celebrity in Charlie’s Angels, a Cleveland poster company arranged to shoot Fawcett in a bikini at her house in 1976. As Rubenstein explained, “She wasn’t comfortable so exposed, so she pulled this red one-piece from her closet. The company hated the pic, but Farrah had final approval (and retained photo rights). Smart girl: The poster sold over 12 million copies and is still for sale today.” [InStyle]

Still selling copies after 12 million have already been sold!  And she owned the rights up to the end.  Not so dumb, now was she?

Bethenny Frankel’s Goodbye To Daytime TV

Bethenny Frankel Says Goodbye To Daytime

Bethenny Frankel can check daytime TV host off of her to-do list. The very successful Skinnygirl entrepreneur and reality TV star said goodbye to her talk show last week.

Trying not to get too emotional, Bethenny, thanked her crew of the show “bethenny”, and her fans for supporting her.

I swear this woman works her Skinnygirl ass off, and I liked her talk show, but she does better as a guest on talk shows than as a host every day.

The end of her TV show also ushers in new things for Bethenny.  The best selling author has penned a children’s book, and is releasing new food items for her Skinnygirl line.  Those are the good that go along with the bad of her uber messy divorce.  She told the court last week that estranged husband Jason Hoppy said he was going to “destroy” her and her image, and that he wouldn’t let her be alone with her daughter.  He also mistreated her dog!

“I found out that Jason locked Cookie in the storage unit in our apartment with her dog bed and bowl,” she said.

That same night, while Frankel was out, Hoppy put the dog in a bag, hailed a cab, dropped the pup off at a dog hotel in New York City and “wouldn’t tell me or my assistant where she was until after midnight,” Frankel added.

Oof, I hope that mess of a divorce ends quickly.  He seems to have been there to get his own 15 minutes of fame and now that it’s gone… well, let’s just say he isn’t happy about it.

Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell) Final Season Interview

Pete-Campbell-Vincent-Kartheiser-airport-mad_men_season_7-Frank-Ockenfels-AMC

Mad Men’s last season started just a few weeks ago and everyone is back to sitting in front of the TV Sunday nights.  The shine may have dulled, but a lot of us are still curious as to what happens to these mid-century advertisers.

AMC sat down with Vincent Kartheiser, aka Pete Campbell and asked him about what makes Pete tick, his style, a fake dog on set and those awful speaker phones.

Q: Is it hard adjusting to life at the SC&P L.A. office? You must miss working with the other actors.

A: It’s mostly hard because I’m kind of a weird duck, and I’ve gotten used to everyone realizing that I’m a weird duck and accepting my weirdness. And now there’s all these new people who I forget that they don’t know that I’m weird.

Q: You live in L.A. Got any advice for Pete on acclimating to the city?

A: Stay off the 405, take Fountain, and don’t believe the hype.

Q: That sounds like that Saturday Night Live sketch, “The Californians,” that jokes about which highways to take in L.A.

A: [Laughs] I love “The Californians!” “I’m just going to leave here and hop on the 101 and exit on Western.” I love that. It’s amazing, amazing.
