New episode coming soon!

Stage Mom Number 2 Is Ginger Rogers Mother Lela. Lela Was Accomplished In Her Own Right, But It Was Truly All About Ginger..WEDDING CAKE MUST SEE!!!

First of all Happy Late Mom’s day! I was at family reunion so no computer. Was supposed to post this Sunday..

 

April and I do part 2 of Stage Moms. Today we talk about Ginger Rogers mom Lela. She would do anything to make her daughter a star, and she did. Ginger as we all know was amazingly talented, she trusted her Lela and Lela was not only her mom, she was her BFF. That wasn’t too great for any of Gingers 5 hubby’s. Studio execs loathed her, and it’s alleged the movie The Hard Way was based on Lela and Ginger.  Ida Lupino starred as Joan Leslies big sister that will do anything to make sis a star…and she did.

The picture of Ginger and Lew Ayers in front of their wedding cake..I’ll post.. RUN LEW, RUN. Their marriage lasted under two years. Lew thought three’s a crowd and literally told her to back to Lela’s home..

Again thanks to Deborah for the idea. Our final four are pretty rotten moms. Next up Betty Grable, then Shirley Temple, Natalie Wood, and Gypsy Rose Lee’s mom, Rose Hovick..

Thanks to my partner in crime April. You are the best..

  1. If some one wishes to be updated with most up-to-date technologies
    then he must be pay a visit this web page and be up to date all the time.

  2. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog.
    I really hope to see the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future
    as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has
    motivated me to get my own, personal blog now 😉

  3. Your audio levels are sometimes too low or too high. You & the guest. Like your not talking straight into your mics.

  4. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.

  5. Thhis desxign is spectacular! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more thn that, how
    you presented it. Too cool!

  6. Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  7. Informative article, totally what I needed.
