Mamie Vandoren
who here remembers THAT name from the 50s? I was reading an article in Salon this morning, "Homo Confidential" and started surfing and ran across Mamie Vandorens website and blog. Check it out. This lady absolutely trashes Rove and calls the Chimp "The First Half Wit".

Good for her!

2. Great web site!
Who would have ever thought Mamie was so politically astute? She's on top of all the issues.

I'd love to hang out with her sometime and hear all her stories. I'm sure she has a few to tell.

5. I remember her.
She, Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe were all the hottest blonde bombshells in the '50s.

6. First, I can't believe she's still alive
Second, Good for you, Mamie!
Third, her best movie (IMHO) Girls Town:


Which made for one of the funniest MST3K episodes EVER!

7. Oh yeah
I spent an afternoon once reading her site from top to bottom. She's got some spicy Hollywood stories, like about the guy who beat the notorious Forrest Tucker in a ****-measuring contest. You'll never guess who it was.

9. I remember her well - she has always been soooo hot.
Now she has this kick-ass website?! Who would have thought it? It is a great blog of her ramblings - she is one sharp cookie!

14. I remember her. She was another Marilyn wannabe.
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 08:17 AM by kskiska
I think she was married to Richard Dawson at one point. I get her confused with Diana Dors, another of those platinum blondes.

On Edit: He was married to Dors.

17. She is flipping hilarious....from her blog
"Even if you ignore that Judge John G. Roberts looks like a mattress salesman and is as evasive as a husband caught with lipstick on his collar, the simple fact that he is the nominee for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the most anti-woman, anti-poor, anti-minority, anti-science, anti-intellectual pres---no, I can't use the word---occupant of the White House in recent memory has to make you suspicious. Roberts tops out at a Ten on the MVD Creep Factor Scale. They don't get any creepier."

She has a great way with words.

18. Ah, Mamie. Responsible for the first ticklings in my prickling...
The way she writes, she should be a member of DU.

Maybe she is...

You go, girl! :toast:
