Is that the heart special? I saw it promoted, but I didn't watch.

Hon, Neely's had a hard life and all, life-long chain-smoking, lithium treatments, a string of husbands, still not sure who the straight one's dad is. All the red ones. She's had it rough. That broad was full-time on Broadway like at 12!

I'm sure she'll bounce back, she doesn't want to give up her title as Miss Over-50 Lifetime TV Movie Staple.

I think it was the heart special. I only caught a few minutes of it and by then she was talking about being certified crazy.

I still can't understand why she hasn't landed endorsements with the pharmaceutical companies. Between you and me, hon, if you had to live down a performance like she did in "Valley of the Dolls" then you'd be nuts for life, too. I'm still holding out that she'll do commentary for the upcoming DVD, but given she's called it the "nadir" of her career, I think we're more likely to see Faye Dunaway do commentary on the Mommie Dearest DVD.

I'm looking through Neely's impressive filmography after her lowpoint in Valley of the Dolls. I loved "The Sixth Sense: with Affections, Jack the Ripper," "Mom, the Wolfman, and Me," "Please DOn't Hit Me, Mom," and my personal favorite "There's No Place Like Homo." :lol:

Yes, and Dunaway has "The Wicked Lady," "Supergirl" and the memorable, "Beverly Hills Madam."

If someone named a board game after me, I might go nuts, too! They should have done a Valley of the Dolls board game where the 4 leads are after as many "dolls" as they can collect, and of the right color of course. Instead of "Go Directly To Jail" it could be "Go Directly to Rehab." They could have spots like "Lyon Burke's Beachhouse," "Helen Lawson's Penthouse," "Anne Welles' Lawrenceville Home" and "Neely's Nuthouse."

Neely, all you need is a little repair work and maintenance and you'll be landing Baxter's roles in no time. Give Joan a call. She'll hook you up with a good surgeon (or at least allow you to know who not to go to :tape: )

Thanks, hon! Meredith loves to call me Miss O'Hara to hide the fact that she is a year younger and I just have to put a fake smile on my face because she has more clout in the world of Lifetime. :(

Well, at 61 years old, I guess Tim can lead his own life. Anyway, he spilled his guts on A&E Biography about me, I mean, when he told me he would discuss me and Jess fighting, I assumed he'd slant it like Jess beat me instead of saying I beat Jess as good as he beat me! :fiery: Anyway, Greg's always been my favorite, going to vet school and all.

Greg was my favourite as well and I even threw myself at him but he was such a gentleman, "Miss O'Hara, I'm flattered but you are one of my mother's OLDEST friends...." So I settled for Tim. Forgive me, hon. :o

Well, I would have disinherited them for that. They can mess around with a famous actress as long as she's not as talented as me. But someone who's more famous than me, my ego can't handle it.

Go for it, hon. I can't be around forever to boss them around and run their lives like any good diva would. So, it can pass to you for Tim.

Is it true what they say about you and Bette where after filming a movie together she ripped off her wig, threw it into your face, and told you to go fuck yourself?

If it's any consolation, Miss Lawson, Bette Davis was nowhere near as versatile as you and many of her performances bordered on caricatures.

No, that was Neely. Bette and I, though we feuded, had a base-line respect for each other. Plus, we both wore wigs, so two can rip, you know what I mean? She hated it that I was personal friends with Greta Garbo and that Garbo counted ME, not Bette, as one of her all-time favorites. In "Where the Love Has Gone" I did get to take a big knife and slash a portrait of Bette, who was playing my mother. :lol:

No way would I have done "Baby Jane" with Joan Crawford. Of course, Liz could have been the stupid bitch in the wheelchair and I could have been Baby Jane to her. Hmmm, that would have been good come to think of it.

So, what did you think of me, hon! :D

As cheesy and stupid as Jennifer's death scene is, I do tear up some when she's taking the pills in front of the mirror with Tony singing that awful song in the background and when her eyes close for the last time on the bed. It stops me from laughing over her line from earlier in the scene, "Let's face it Anne, honey, all I know how to do is take off my clothes." And then Anne telling Jennifer not to be upset over the double mascetomy, because Jennifer can come visit Lyon and Anne at the beach afterwards.

Betty was sloppy. "Suicides" are far less messy and you don't do jail time. Edgar's gave me my 8th career wind. A wind that didn't get me the part of Betty's sister on that movie. It was a lucky break though as is turned out to be a "The Conqueror"-esque, bad luck-plagued set. Meredith allegedly channelled Betty's aura and let off a round of ammo at the guy playing the husband.

Neely, I missed you on Larry's show but I'm doing a movie with Whoopi. She says
all the Best Supporting Actresses are having their Oscar lunch soon so I'll see you there. I'm taking Marisa Tomei's place. For the 12th straight year.

Betty was nuts, and after all, she wasn't the "hardened" career-woman with the experience she needed to pull off the "suicide" like a certain hardened comedienne we all know and love. ;)

The real life case was far, far funnier than anything they did on Lifetime. First of all, Dan Broderick and his new wife baited Betty A LOT. They would send her brochures from a plastic surgeon's office with a note, "Betty, do you need this?" Then, they'd send a picture of Dan and the new wife at a party with a note, "Eat your heart out, bitch." Fun times all around!!! :lol:
