June 27, 2014

Wow. Seriously, Warren? Let's hope this was in Cabaret days.

Renoblondee said...

Who didn't Warren do the horizontal mambo with?

MISCH said...

Didn't they do a film together…a big bomb I think

FrenchGirl said...

Beatty and Wood dated almost 2 years after Splendor In The Grass ( 1961)

So the scandal is that Lisa was 15/16 at this time.
Beatty dropped Wood for a pretty waiter in a restaurant

sugarbread maker said...

Unknown said...

Ugh, now we're getting spammed in the comments? Soon we'll be hearing about how someone's aunt's boyfriend makes $5k/month using Google!

Cheryl said...

All three of them got around, and if you believe Hollywood Babylon, NW also walked in on James Dean and Sal Mineo. I said, if.

SusanB said...

@ruby noire I buy a LOT of books for Kindle as well as regular books. Since you choose to spam us here, I choose not to buy your book or even look at it on Amazon. Save the spam for when enty has a post to discuss things we want to promote.

sandybrook said...

I think the only stars beck then Warren didn't do were Sophie Tucker, Phyllis Diller and Moms Mabley.

FSP said...

No thanks

Bubbles said...

Is there anybody in Hollywood that Beatty DIDN'T screw?

Kno Won Uno said...

Throwing shade at Moms Mabley? Pfft.
I'm old enough to remember ancient Merv Griffin shows, so how's about Totie Fields?!

warren was quite the poon hound in his day. i was surprised that warren married bening and ya barely hear from him. he seems go have retired his giggolo card. you never hear about him running around on bening. good on him for it.

Kno Won Uno said...

@Fancy - I figured he experienced decreased testosterone levels, so got married. I was shocked it was her, frankly.

FrenchGirl said...

@Cheryl
Wood dated Nicolas Ray during Rebel Without Cause then she dropped him for Dennis Hooper then Sal Mineo

Lady Heisenberg said...

Did Enty fall into an eggs Benedict coma? Where's the 9:20am reveal, homie?

Kno Won Uno said...

There was a long pause yesterday, too, wasn't there?

FSP said...

You should submit your material to the Bookie club.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Hmmmm not sure....
In the mean time.....
Ok sorry to bitch/brag but I can't share this anywhere else and need to vent my happiness. For the past two months, I've been picking up all of the slack on my assignment while my two colleagues did relatively no work. I was getting paid equal to one of them, who used to be a friend, and this experience has made me resent his lazy ass because he's more than happy to collect checks while I do the lion's share. I kept thinking about the students who needed us, shut my mouth and kept doing my job, while only griping to my mama about how much it blew.

Turns out, my students realized what was up and reported it to admin. They started auditing us a few weeks ago, and guess who just got a bonus?!?!

@sugarbread: Anything fun going down in Vegas the next few weeks? I think yo hood just paged my ass! Woooohoooo #karma

Jessica Larson said...

Probably wouldn't have guessed Liza, but she was once the hottie starlet.

Natalie & Warren are easy to figure out in this one.

Wahoowifey said...

@reno MTE!

sugarbread maker said...

@lady h. i heart radio fest in september.. 21st i belive!!

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

"I think we need to reboot..."

(Obscure movie reference FTW)

sugarbread maker said...

congrats on the bonus girrl.. karma!!

fancyscreenname said...

Kno

Agreed

nora nader said...

This reveal made me LAUGH! I just can't picture Warren Beatty & Liza Minelli horizontally. Probably a blessing. Not sure if I can handle that visual in my head!! O_o

sugarbread maker said...

love is beautiful music +gourmet food +art fest october 26-28 cool weather.. all over downtown freemont street..

sugarbread maker said...

@nora.. who was wearing the paper bag on head though??

Mother Hen said...

Anyone know anything about how Bening was able to get him to settle down? Any good stories?

nora nader said...

LADY HEISENBERG! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Always do the right thing even when the right thing isn't happening to you and you will be rewarded, somehow, someway, someday. [=

Sooooo very happy for you Miss Lady Heisenberg!

/cheers!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Thanks Nora and Sugarbread! Good thing mah parents raised me to work really hard! I love the few times it really pays off!

Bullshit can get you to the top, but it will never, EVER keep you there. #truthcannon

meme deemed said...

@Lady H - Congrats! Well deserved! Enjoy!


By the way, love the phrase "Horizontal Mambo"! "Hey Lucy!"

Gayeld said...

Congrats!

Zach said...

How is it Liza and not Rita??

LowKey said...

Awesome, LadyH!

Sherry said...

Congrats Lady H! I hate slackers and how they skate thinking they'll never get caught.

I can totally see it bring Rita Moreno but not Liza. Although Beatty was the man Ho.

trudi said...

Cher said she was 16 when Warren picked her up. He was also dating Natalie at the time. Evidently he liked them very young back then.

Liza may not be the beauty Natalie was, but she had a great figure back then. I can totally believe Warren would want to bed the teenage daughter of Hollywood royalty.

Bunni said...

Good on you a Lady H.

Jessi said...

My guess is that Warren hadn't stopped entirely. No way in hell do you go from a past of sexy times with anything that walks to being a one lady man. My assumption is they have an agreement of some sort. Which is great, whatever works for them.

fancyscreenname said...

@mother hen
that is the mystery of all mysteries.

@kno
i wast surpised at their pairing too.

Zero surprise!

Congratulations @ladyH

:^)

QueenAnne Guido said...

@rubey.... prepare for a lot of one stars and nasty reviews.

Just saying. Spamming spammers fills us with glee.

@LadyH. ^10
...and it's cool u shared the experience.
"It pays" to do good.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

@QueenAnne. Awesome reply!

Scarlett Drawl said...

This makes me sad. Splendor in the Grass is one of my favorite movies. I didn't know they dated but they had chemistry in that movie.

Cheryl said...

Warren Beatty asked a teenaged Melissa Gilbert for a date. She is my age so this would have been in the early '80s

MinPinGirl said...

Liza got around a lot back in the day (who didn't?). Look at the Studio 54 days. Practically nothing would surprise me about those hookups. As someone said earlier, Liza was Hollywood royalty (from both sides of the family).

Cheryl said...

I think Natalie Wood also had an affair with Nick Adams, who supposedly swung both ways.

RowdyRodimus said...

Natalie Wood was A+. How could anyone even get it up for Liza at any age. She definitely didn't get her Mom's looks.

Malibu Borebee said...

Beatty was decades away from being an A+ Oscar contender when he was dating Natalie Wood.


Bening and Beatty were hot and heavy during the filming of Bugsy. She got pregnant. She refused to have an abortion and eventually he married her.

I'm sure she knows that he has other women. Maybe she should have stayed with Ed Begley Jr.

Sherry said...

Wait Bening was with EBJr? NOT what I would consider a sexy man compared to Beatty.

Seven of Eleven said...

Woohoo @ LadyH! WTG!

I'm tardy to the party, what did Rubey spam - I'm guessing an ebook based on the review/one star comment?

(Guido, that was awesome!)

AKM said...

I don't think that neither Judy nor Liza was a great classic beauty, but they each had distinct looks that worked for them and played up their best features. I'm not surprised Warren was interested.

Interesting that someone brought up Cher, too...not a lot of folks know that, as she was still an unknown teen living at home and all.

Go, Lady H! Can I toot MY horn? (I think maybe we all should today. We could all probably use some cheering and cheering-up). My MSW is finished! 4.0, too, although that typically doesn't make much of a difference. But I know I did it!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Thanks for the congrats everyone!
And great great great for you AKM!!!!!!
Congrats! I will have a drink for you!!! ;)
HeisenHugs

Rubey Noire said...

Rubey didn't spam anything. She made a comment. She mentioned a book she wrote. That is all.

Yoj said...

@Lady Heisenberg
@AKM
Congratulations!

Seven of Eleven said...

And then deleted the posts and talked about herself in the third person?

Fascinating.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Did I miss something?
I would like to read Rubey's book! I hope it's about something super compelling, like Serbian anarcho syndicalist social movements or a thorough overview of artisinal Peruvian dessert recipes!

Seven of Eleven said...

I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with the Alluminati and misspelling both English and French words. Weird Al to the rescue!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Oh for the love of Elgin MacGreggerson!!!!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Oh WOW. Thanks for the heads up, @7(up)! Sorry....couldn't help myself.

I just caught up with today's posts and oh my, did I miss a LOT....what a HOT MESS!

auntliddy said...

I am anazed at number of people who are surprised Beatty cheated and who he may have slept with. The joke in the industry was you cldnt leave him alone with a plant!

animaluva said...

I read that Warren said he asked Julie Christie many times to marry him but she always refused. Lady H good for you! You are a classy lady.

Aoife said...

Warren and Liza?! Really?! Wow. Had to be when both were much younger.

Aoife said...

Bening used move # 101 in the "How To Get A Man" book. I've never much cared for her since then. No one wins in those situations.

I read somewhere that a very young woman (late teens) recently had a child for Warren (within the last five years or so). You don't hear about it because they people who rep them are powerful enough to make sure folks like us don't hear about his shenanigans.

Eros said...

Well, its warren beatty. Who wouldnt when he was in his twenties. I was an old movies buff even as a teenager.... I must have watched splendor in the grass 2500 times. ...I was over the moon for warren's character.
