Golden Age Hollywood Gossip


Turns out that Joe DiMaggio wasn't the only New York Yankee to get a larger than life Hollywood actress. According to a new biography about Doris Day, in 1962 a married Mickey Mantle visited the set of the film That Touch Of Mink starring a married Doris Day. He was on the set because he and some of the other Yankees were doing a cameo. Apparently the pair hit it off and had an affair that lasted throughout the filming. Although Mantle was known as a guy who would f**k anyone, anytime and anywhere and even had a private suite he had for just that purpose, apparently he bragged to all his friends not just about having sex with her, but that she was the best f**k he had ever had.

Who knew Doris Day had it in her. Well apparently Mickey did. Doris Day's representatives declined to comment. What? You mean they didn't want to call up the 84 year old and ask her if she had sex with Mickey Mantle and if she was as good as the book and Mickey claims? I actually bet Doris probably would like to comment but her representatives are too scared to ask her and hope that she just doesn't even find out about the book.

I always did think that Doris Day was a hottie. Mickey Mantle, not so much. She could have done better.

Or, you know, he could've just been talking shit.

But guys never lie about sleeping with a woman, so it must be true.

No kidding! Go Doris! LOL

Que Sera, Sera......I feel bad for her, she has had a tragic life, & seems to be very decent.

Good for her (if it's true).

I wished Doris would get that special Oscar Liz Smith keeps writing about. I think she was very underrated back in the day.

LMAO, EL!! Love Doris Day! If only this scoop was revealed in the 60's she might have shaken that goody-two-shoes reputation she could never get rid of.

Still watch her movies. Never considered her sexy just plain ole Doris.

Reminds me of the famous quote from Oscar Levant: "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin."

Judi said...

Not to tow the virgin line but Mantle was known as a lying pr*ck. I don't believe it.

I know for an absolute fact that Doris had a long time affair with Maury Wills, the black major league baseball player. She LOVES dark meat. I can't say which one of them told me about it.

We'll never know the truth because Doris Day has too much class to comment on something like this.

She was on the O'Reilly Factor about a year or so ago, via the telephone. I heard her but couldn't see her. I believe she and O'Reilly were discussing animal shelters.
