Blind Items Revealed

April 29, 2014

She's one of the most recognizable faces of classic Hollywood, but back when she was on the verge of A+ list stardom, she slept with many a producer to get a role. One of these casual encounters resulted in a surprise pregnancy, which she ended up terminating. That might explain why she couldn't have kids.

What did they do for terminations back then to cause infertility, use a cost hanger?

Ray Nicolet said...

That is sad

KMS from down under said...

Coat hanger!!! Damn it. But yay, I'm first

parissucksliterally said...

OMG! This is SOOOOO shocking!!!!

yawn.

Renoblondee said...

Uh. Who doesn't know this? She had quite a few

sandybrook said...

Better she couldn't have bebehs she wasn't the motherly type. Any kid she would have raised would have been completely fucked.

Jessica Larson said...

Yea, that's been the rumor for years that she couldn't get pregnant while trying with Miller due to abortions when a model/starlet. Abortions weren't legal then, so who knows where she went to.

Violet said...

Isn't it more likely that she didn't have children because she had terminations rather than she couldn't because she had one? (Iykwim)

Karen said...

Abortions weren't legal, but there were doctors who would perform them anyway under the guise of a different procedure. My grandmother was a surgical nurse in Las Vegas in the 1940s and actresses and other women would come in for them. My grandmother was extremely pro-life so she refused to be in on those surgeries, but she knew what was going on.

Vera Christina said...

poor thing. I'm not pro-abortion, but they should be safe, legal and between a woman and her doctor.

Laninna said...

Yes.

She was also a huge slob. She'd go days without bathing and would eat chicken wings in bed and just toss the bones under there when she was finished. In that regard I guess she and Lindsay are similar.

Marilyn fans already knew this. ???

Nothing sexier than women talking about ending the life of the child they started to create... what's wrong with the world today? Women are evil.

In fairness to Marilyn, I don't think meth had been invented then, so she couldn't just go the Paz route.

Jason Blue Eyes, hahahahaha!

...and nice to see you!

Why is this a blind?
The 'casual' connotation?
Someone you wouldn't expect to sleep with her?

KMS from down under said...

Wowsa! I haven't slaughted a goat, or cut out a mans beating heart or had a abortion today ( that was yesterday). So let's calm down with the she devil shit

Jessica Larson said...

Nah, I think if Marilyn lived longer she would've ended up with Liza Minelli health issues. Marilyn's issues were alcohol, smoking & prescription drugs. Back then drinking & smoking were thought to be alright, women still would while pregnant, and you could smoke in hospitols. She trusted her doctors & took the pills they gave her.

KMS from down under said...

Oh sorry can't help myself but she didn't talk about it, that's what makes it a blind . And you can't say what's wrong with the women of today regarding this it was a long time ago ( can't be bothered goggling how long)

rajahcat said...

does anyone get roles with their talent alone?

Lula Surber said...

Yeah I don't think Marilyn had any intention of having kids. Ever.

Tina Mallette said...

If you watch the many documentarys about Marilyn, I saw a new one on HBO, various actresses were reading from Marilyn's actual letters, she was not a dumb bunny, they all say she desperately wanted a child and her miscarriages were devastating.

Jessica Larson said...

She wanted children badly, especially when with Miller, she had a miscariage during their marriage

MISCH said...

Sad, she really wanted a family

Count Jerkula said...

@rajacat: Certainly, it just aint acting talent.

auntliddy said...

Karen- all you have to do is take blurry fetus sono pic, say not a viable fetus, and terminate. Gid knows hiw they treminated pregnancies in those days!! I shudder to think.

auntliddy said...

Jason- i read she also never used santitary pads, wld just bleed all over the place. Now thats a deal breaker.

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

She had several terminations. In Some Like it Hot, there's a scene where she's singing and turns her back to walk off stage. Her dress is clearly unzipped and it turns out she was pregnant during the filming of this

SaintsFan said...

She was pregnant during Some Like It Hot and was happy to be in San Diego where she said the fresh air would be good for the baby. She went to Mexico for more than one of her abortions according to books I have read.

Krissie said...

If it's true she wanted a baby so badly but couldn't because of her abortions, why couldn't she adopt like ol' Mommie Dearest did?

It's sad to think of what women had to go through to get an abortion back then.

This was in her bio. She's had abortions. Not just one.

Nipple said...

Freya, i bet he gives great head.

I know, a day late and a dollar short, several doctors theorized that she may have also had a disorder, like endometriosis. She often complained of excruciating pain during TOM.

In her later years, she desperately wanted a child, and inability to do so took a heavy toll on her mental stability. Of course, her mother was mentally ill

Guntotin' TxMama said...

As well, her end may have been the same. Institutionalized while her child is raised by the foster system.
