Blind Items Revealed- Old Hollywood

March 17, 2014

This A/B-list comedic actor best known for his endless TV specials loved to cheat on his long-suffering wife (whom he always said he was happily married to): One of his more notable conquests was before he ventured to Hollywood: he appeared in a Broadway musical with that legendary dancer/chanteuse and was caught in the act several times by his wife who turned a blind eye while visiting backstage.

Bob Hope/Josephine Baker

Infidelity is not a new thing. Bob liked the swirl.

sandybrook said...

Actually Bob Hope was probably A+ for life but why quibble over ratings?

Lady Heisenberg said...

VIP got Bob Hope and no one got Baker since it was assumed to be Fanny. Way to go!

Seven of Eleven said...

@All Lace no Leather :D

derek harvey said...

Where is VIP? probably having great sex somewhere...

derek harvey said...

Josephine Baker was HOT---Bob Hope? Not so much---he looks like one of those muppets (the critics on the balcony) that Bacon Ranch has as a profile pic...

All Lace no Leather said...

@Seven, gotta love Crazy Eyes! Thx for sharing.

Lady Heisenberg said...

LOLOLOLOL
nailed it with that comparison @derek

All Lace no Leather said...

@Lady, what happened to your picture?

Mysti Fy said...

Bob Hope was a horrible cheater. He was pretty respectful of his wife tho right?! Ha.
He threw parties with themes, sex, drugs all labeled, women and men for appetizers, sex shows, the lot.
Why people believe he was some old fashioned funny gramps I'll never know. He was quite sick.

auntliddy said...

I cld never syand this man. So f*cking boring, with unfunny jokes. Well known cheater and lover of filthy jokes along with his buddy Spiro Agnew. If u grew up at a certain time, you will well understand the dislike. Pigman!!

Seven of Eleven said...

For those interested (don't tell your gran): Bob Hope was the Tiger Woods of His Time.

Key notes: he was a lecherous exhibitionist around the friends of his teenaged daughter, his longtime companion had a thing with Jimmy Durante, he traded girlfriends with Bing Crosby, and he was a fan of beauty pageant contestants.

Mysti Fy said...

I dislike what a life he led and what we are told. Never liked the guy.

Sherry said...

All Lace: loving "the swirl".

Mysti Fy said...

Very young ones too.

MISCH said...

Some women are happy being THE WIFE….

Sherry said...

And none of the was in "H'wd Babylon". That would have been an interesting addition. What hippocrisy.

I saw Bob at a Charger game a year or so before he died. He was friends with the Spanos family that owns the Chargers. We were waiting for the elevator and were supposed to be next to ride it up to our seats. All of a sudden 2 large men in suits, talking into their watches approached and asked us all to step back. Then along came Bob and a few others to get on the elevator. What made the biggest impression on me was how awful he looked. His skin was ashen and his eyes were circled in red.

All Lace no Leather said...

Oh and there was extra room on the elevator, but they wouldn't let us common folk ride up with him.

Pink_Palace said...

I still love crazy Charlie Sheen, so I guess it is no surprise that I will always love Bob Hope! He may have been the typical womanizing pig from Hollywood, but he did a lot for our troops and I always looked forward to his specials on tv.

auntliddy said...

All lace-he always looked like that, lol

Lady Heisenberg said...

@all lace: I haven't had a picture up in a long time. But if I did, it would be this
Thanks for the Bob Hope story

auntliddy said...

Pink- hope actually said he lived entertaining troops cos they were captive audience and laughed at all his jokes. He said he had to be talked into the first GI show, but after that he was hooked and actively seeked them out.

Meg said...

No way was Bob Hope less than A.

roundeye said...

Bob Hope was always A+. Incredibly rich also. He hit a hole in one at my golf club in the 70s and we put down a plaque.

Essie said...

This is not true. Josephine Baker told everything about her life, including who she slept with. The woman couldn't keep her mouth shut. Bob Hope's name was not in her autobiography, and she did name names. It is true that Bob Hope was a whore, though.

Clark St. said...

It had to be a lot earlier than that, as Hope was bedridden for a few years before his "official death date". He needed a wheelchair to go anywhere.
I say that, since there have been persistent rumors that Hope died & was refrigerated for about 8 months, because he wanted the world to believe he lived to be 100, just like George Burns.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

But @Essie, would you admit you slept with Bob Hope? Lol. Did Josephine name any others that had the sex appeal of an elderly cartoon character?

Enty had a "your turn" asking if there was anyone that we slept with and then lied about it. I never have lied to anyone about this one, cuz first I lied to myself and said I didn't do it. And I believed myself so I had nothing to tell.

And I'm super hard to crack, but unfortunately I've drank too much.

All Lace no Leather said...

@Clark I'm sure you are right. When you are old like me the years blend together. I'm pretty sure it was pre-kids, so that would be before 1997. Not sure when Bob died

Fins to the Left! said...

Bob Hope like a lot of comedians, was hung

Rose Lizenberg said...

Bob Hope was never B list. Are you fucking kidding me with this, Enty?

B. Profane said...

Hope did a lot worse things in life than cheat. He was an absolute shit to his writers.

Katie said...

Agree

Studio54 said...

Right wing hypocrite, wrapping himself in the flag and a sham "happy" marriage.

Studio54 said...

Every President sucked up to this hypocrite. WHY was the press so gutless NOT to publicize this in a very big way during his lifetime? I'm talking to YOU National Enquirer, etc. That's YOUR job. Because he spent Christmas's with he troops? People should have had ALL the facts about this jerk.

rosie riveter said...

Well guh-ros.

Pink_Palace said...

thanks auntliddy, especially since you couldn't stand him. My late daddy was career military and then career DOD, so i never heard an ugly word about Hope.

Bbbeeewww said...

Yes! Bob was A+ always. Almost iconic, like John Wayne.

Sylvia said...

What a disappointment

Topper Madison said...

First of all, Bob is beyond ratings. Let's just call him an American Icon.

Second of all, there are two types of women in the world: Bing girls and Bob girls. I am now and forever a Bob girl.

Funny guys are sexy as hell. All he'd have to do is look at me with those cow eyes the way he looked at Dorothy Lamour, and I would dance the dance of the seven veils for him on the road to Morocco/Singapore/Utopia/Zanzibar, etc.

Penelope said...

He was a well-known pig. And even as a kid I remember thinking this old guy ain't funny at ALL.

#Gitit said...

Dear Josephine,

Whyyyyyyyyyyy? That is just disgusting. Certainly there were better men out there and some of them probably wanted you.

D Brown said...

If Josephine did, I suspect she omitted ihim from her biography only because it would hurt Hope's wife. As for the commentator who referenced Hope's red eyes I would mention that he had vision problems for decades and was largely blind for the last several years of his life.
