Thank you, Kay, for this submission
The controversial first issue of Playboy magazine.  Hugh Hefner bought the rights to the red calendar nude photos of Marilyn from the photographer.  Marilyn handled the ensuing puritanical public frenzy so smartly.  She was unashamed, admitted she needed to pay bills, and this job did that.  She won the public’s sympathy, and went on to become the most famous actress in the world.  So there, skeevy dudes! :)

Yeah, and all those people who say she posed for Playboy… get your facts right, she never posed for Playboy & never met Hugh Hefner!

Anonymous said: If you had a choice to spend a solid week with Marilyn at her happiest or a few hours with her on her last night alive not knowing it was her last, which would you pick?

wow!! What an incredible question!!! That’s tough, part of me is saying that I would want her at her best, but another part is hoping that if I were there with her on her final night, maybe things would have turned out differently! That’s a tough one!!!
