Marilyn Monroe

I’m currently reading The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe by J. Randy Taraborrelli. Her life makes for a great read. The story is laced with tragedy. The tragedy of her grandmother’s, mother’s and her own serious mental health issue. The tragedy of how Norma Jean was passed around from foster home to friend to orphanage and even married at the age of 16 to avoid life in the orphanage. It also illuminates her incredible determination and ambition. It highlights how she fell for awful, arrogant men when she could have any man on the planet. But reading about Marilyn doesn’t compare watching to watching her. This is from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
