Me and Auntie Mame in New York
Huffington Post - 4 months
Every kid needs an Auntie Mame. My Auntie Mame was born in 1895. Her name was Dorothy and she was my grandfather's sister. She took a liking to me from the very beginning. In fact, when I was first learning to walk my mother and Dorothy were on opposite sides of the room and each called out to me to come to them. Since I had two choices, I couldn't go to both, so I headed towards Dorothy. Perhaps as a toddler I knew that one day Dorothy would treat me to 3 days in Manhattan. As for Mom, she was gracious about the slight. After all, since I lived with Mom I saw her everyday but that was not the case with Dorothy. Aunt Dorothy was really my introduction to the world. When I was 13, she announced that she wanted to take me to New York City for a long weekend. Mom had no problems about letting me go, since I was already spending several weekends a year at Aunt Dorothy's apartment in Philadelphia. In a sense I grew up having two mothers. When at last the coveted Manhat ...

James Van Praagh: Stars in Heaven Still Shining
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Liberace, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Barbara Walters are just a few of the stars I discussed the other day during my delightful interview with one of the brashest woman in show business, Joy Behar, known mostly for being the longest survivor on the gab-fest The View. On her very own Say Anything chat show which currently runs nightly on the elusive Current TV, Joy ushered me in to discuss anything the dead wanted to share along with giving her make-up artist a short but touching message from her deceased father. Face it, after natural disasters, political upheavals and courtroom dramas, there is nothing like a dose of spiritual insights to put this mortal world into proper perspective. Claiming to be an "open-minded" skeptic, Joy ranted on about psychic ability; intuition and the dead in general and I couldn't help but mention my unfortunate run-in with her soon to be retired boss, Barbara Walters. I reminded her that on my last "The View" appearance, Barbara ...

Liz Smith: Marilyn Monroe: 50 Years Dead And More Alive Than Ever!
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"WHAT DO you dream?" "My dreams are too intimate to be revealed in public." "What is your nightmare?" "My nightmare is the H-bomb, what's yours?" So it went between Marilyn Monroe and writer Alan Levy, in the very last interview Marilyn gave, to Redbook magazine. (It appeared after her death.) Over the weekend-- Saturday or Sunday--it was the 50th anniversary of the death of Marilyn--half a century! Because of the varying versions of when she died and when her body was discovered, it could be either date. In the years since I've had this column, I've probably written as much about this young woman, so long gone, than other stars who were, or are, alive and thriving. Indeed, my column was the impetus for 20th Century Fox to dig out the many glorious hours of the unfinished "Something's Got To Give," which gave the lie to the idea Marilyn was performing in a drug-and-drink-induced coma. In fact, it seemed that director George Cukor was playing the diva on this set. (And by t ...
