Default Actress: Renate Müller

Renate Müller was a German singer and actress in both silent films and sound films, as well as on stage. Müller entered films in the late 1920s and quickly became popular. She was considered to be one of the great beauties of her day and was seen to embody fashionable Berlin society. She starred in more than twenty German films, including Viktor und Viktoria in 1933. Notably, this cross dressing role was the last major reflection of Weimar liberalism (the world of Isherwood and his character 'Sally Bowles'), as Hitler swept in to power later that year.

The Nazi Party rise initially saw her regarded as an embodiment of the ideal Aryan woman (especially after Dietrich's move to Hollywood) and she was courted and promoted as Germany's leading film actress. A meeting with Adolf Hitler in the mid 1930's resulted in Müller being offered parts in films that promoted Nazi ideals .... however all was not as it seemed.

Her very sudden death in 1 October 1937 aged just 31, was initially reported in the Nazi controlled German press as being caused by epilepsy. Not a condition that normally killed ... even under the circumstances of Nazi Germany, this death was considered unusual, and shortly afterwards the same press changed the story to say that she had died as a result of a fall from her hotel window .... a suicide. But the story didn't end there ... according to a UK Channel 4 documentary "Sex and the Swastika", in February 2009, she was said to have jumped from a Berlin mental home window (possibly trying to escape), and not a hotel .... She was known to have become addicted to morphine, and this was possibly why they had chosen an asylum. They had locked her in the asylum after it was found that she had a Jewish lover but had refused to end the relationship. It was then theorised that she took her own life when her relationship with Nazi leaders deteriorated after she showed unwillingness to appear in propaganda films.

Investigations after the war found several witnesses who recalled seeing several Gestapo officers entering her apartment building shortly before she died. It has been asserted by some that she was either murdered by the Gestapo officers, who threw her from the apartment window, or that she panicked when she saw them arrive and jumped, they then took her to the mental asylum to make it look like a suicide by a drug addict.

The true circumstances surrounding her death will probably remain unclear, with other biographers stating that she checked into a Berlin hospital for knee surgery (some sources say drug addiction). She apparently fell or was pushed out of a third-story window and died instantly. The murder theorists suggest that the regime feared her fleeing Germany and that she was going to turn traitor (as they considered Garbo's 'defection'). Oddly although her death was apparently deeply felt across Germany, and she was mourned by her many fans, they weren't even allowed to attend her funeral.

Trivia:
  • Viktor und Viktoria in 1933 was later remade decades later as Victor Victoria with Julie Andrews.

Default Dancer And Vaudeville Star: Kathleen Rockwell

Kathleen Eloise Rockwell gained her fame as a dancer and vaudeville star. She grew up in Washington state, and her stepfather was comparatively well off, so she lived in a large mansion. But the families fortunes fluctuated, and this created tension in the family .... her parents sent the rebellious teenager to boarding school (and we all know how that ends ), but she was expelled for breaking the rules. The family broke up and she moved with her mother to New York.

She had an unsuccessful attempt at breaking into vaudeville in the chorus, where she eked a living but no fame, and aged 26 she then she decided to move somewhere where men had lots of money. A place where a moose in a dress looked sexy, and no one cared if a willing gal could sing or dance ... but during the 'Gold Rush', the land route was controlled by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who held a tight leash on prospective miners and various hangers-on trying to get to the Yukon and find their fortunes in the gold fields. They had seen many girls like Kate before, so they refused her entry. Undaunted she is reputed to have donned a boy's outfit and jumped on a boat headed for the Yukon .... she arrived in Alaska in 1899. Thus was born the legend of the original "Klondike Kate"

She started working as a tap-dancer in Whitehorse, but moved to Dawson City as a member of the Savoy Theatrical Company. She was was very popular with the miners (but who wasn't?), and it was them who was dubbed her "Klondike Kate". Her most popular act was the “flame dance.” for which she she wore an elaborate dress adorned with red sequins and a large cape. Under the cape she carried a cane affixed to more than 200 yards of red chiffon. Removing the cape she danced and twirled the chiffon which resembled flaming fire.

After their dances, stage performers like Kate had the job of spending the rest of the night mixing with the patrons and encouraging them to spend their money at the bar .... she no doubt supplemented her stage earnings for gold ..... During her first year in Dawson City, Kate made $30,000 while wearing expensive gown such as her $1,500 gown from Paris. It was while she was in Dawson that she met one Alexander Pantages, at that time a struggling waiter and bartender, who eventually rose to become theatre owner based mainly on her money .... plus some sharp practices

To say he was unscrupulous is to put it politely, but she entered in to an intense love affair with the Greek Pantages and their rows and reconciliations became the stuff of legend in the Yukon and elsewhere. They probably both played around, and they were both not above swindling unsuspecting miners, and this treacherous quality eventually infected their own relationship. She later accused him of reneging on a promise to marry her as well as attempting to swindle her out of her share of the money ..... she was probably correct, but he no doubt could have pointed at some of her activities.

While Kate was away earning money, Pantages met and married a younger girl from the “right side of the tracks.” Kate was heartbroken, and sued Alexander for breach of promise to marry her. “The woman declares that by her earnings as a vaudeville performer in the Klondike during the early strike she enabled Pantages in five years to jump from poverty to riches, from a waiter in a dance hall in Dawson to the position of theatre magnate,” reported the Dawson Daily News in June 1905. The case was settled out of court, leaving Kate with a settlement of between $5,000 and $60,000, depending on the sources .... it was likely to have been at the higher range in view of her previous earning levels.

In 1902, the Klondike Gold Rush was already dying out and she headed south, first to British Columbia where she set up an early "storefront theater" showing movies, but eventually moved to eastern Oregon, where she seems to have played been a social recluse. She was never able to hit upon a way of reviving any of the fame she had briefly held in Alaska, although she made full use of the memories at "Sourdough" reunions in the 1930s. These provided her with a measure of fame, as did the training of young Hollywood starlets in the 1940s.

Near the end of her life she married a miner named John Matson, who remained in Alaska, while she stayed in Oregon. They were together for 13 years and they wrote each other two letters each year. In 1946, one of Matson’s letters did not arrive on schedule Kate began to worry, and soon after his body was found frozen about 12 kilometres from his remote cabin.

Later, Kate settled in Oregon and married twice before passing away peacefully in 1957, at age 80. Her last years were spent mostly as a living symbol of the Gold Rush. She died in 1957.

Trivia:
  • Ernie Pyle has a chapter about Klondike Kate (who he calls 'Kate Rothrock') in his book 'Home Country'.
  • In September of 1938, Time magazine ran a story on a 'Sourdough' reunion ""Swapping tall stories, but doing little whooping in the Multnomah bar which, like other Oregon taprooms, serves no hard liquor, were such diverse sourdoughs as Henry Macaulay, the first mayor of Dawson, and scores of old Yukon prospectors, storekeepers, mails clerks"... Kate would have known Mr Macaulay.
  • Klondike Kate could make up to $500 a night in Dawson City’s dance halls during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Default Follow Up: Michela Vittoria Brambilla (Berlusconi's Babes - Part 1)

Occasionally I get requests for more pictures, film links, videos (sometimes from people who have actually posted the odd thanks ) .... usually I try to help if I can, but only rarely do they result in a further posting ... mainly because I have 'done the post', and I want to leave it to them to do their own postings. However, I got a request from a regular thanker and friend of this thread SIT, for more information on Michela Vittoria Brambilla .... sadly I have to let him down very gently, and start by saying that she is not directly linked to 'Bunga Bunga', or at least rather, the Italian press haven't dared make any allegation that big. She is famous for being a very loyal member of the crew aboard 'Battleship Berlusconi', and as the chief 'Entertainment Officer', who busies herself ensuring the crew stay loyal to their Admiral. Officer Brambilla regularly runs recruiting campaigns, organises tours of duty, and innocently sets up the odd party. Its Nicole Minetti, on secondment from the good ship Lombardy, who acts as her right hand, and as the ship’s Social Liaison Officer invited ladies to the parties organised by herself (and Brambilla) ... and that's as far as they are prepared to hint at her involvement.

But, as I have some more information on her, and as she was a TV personality, and is the current Italian Minister for Tourism, she qualifies on 'celebrity' grounds ... just. She has also been drawn into some private scandals of her own .... so, stretching it a little, here we go. She is president of the young entrepreneurs of Confcommercio association and the daughter of an steel wire making industrialist. She runs her own steel making company, but her rise to fame was in the traditional manner for this thread. Yes, she started as a competitor in the Miss Italy competition in 1986... "At 18 I chose to enter Miss Romagna,and I ended up in the finals of Miss Italy"... she didn't win (but would have had SIT and I's votes ), where she came to the attention of Silvio's roaming eye. She then worked for Chanel 5 TV (One of his franchises) as a 'journalistic trainee' .... and then finally she was a television journalist for Berlusconi's Mediaset group, where she was famous for her "sexy" attire. She was then was picked to stand for MP on the 'Forza Italia' ticket, but lost in 2006, but later became a right leaning parliamentary member in her own party .... she was appointed to the government cabinet in May 2008 as the 'nominated' Italian Tourism Minister by Conservative Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

She then got dragged into various controversies starting with the "Roman Salute" affair .... according to 'La Repubblica', the photographs were of her giving in an "emotional" way, the "very fascist" gesture. A video of the event was later released, and showed Brambilla, her right arm solemnly folded over her chest, singing Italy's national anthem together with other dignitaries standing on a parade platform. But as the music ends, Brambilla raises the arm stiffly upwards, making the so-called "Roman salute" - the ancient Roman greeting adopted in modern times by Benito Mussolini's Fascists and the Nazis. The Photographs of Brambilla's gesture that appeared in a local newspaper, Gazzetta di Lecco the day after the ceremony, and triggered anger among representatives of Italy's veterans association for World War II partisans, ANPI .... but presumably not the millions of 'ex Fascista' who probably just keep their heads down running Italian Industry, the government, and other state sectors.

But 41-year-old former Miss Italy contestant, Brambilla later scoffed at allegations that she was paying homage to Italy's Fascist past. She accused Italy's opposition left of "discussing the angle at which I raised my arm, in the absence of having anything serious to say" .....

On August 21st 2007 she set up the new Freedom People party apparently with Berlusconi's blessing, the goal of which is to merge the right wing allies of Berlusconi. She has worked very closely with Silvio Berlusconi, the president of the Forza Italia party. Some observers (such as the magazine Panorama), name her as a possible successor to Berlusconi, as leader of the party and of the Italian centre-right. Brambilla has publicly denied such rumours.

More Pictures:






NB: As I have mentioned before, I don't believe that many (if any) qualify for a separate post, as most of the girls are little more than 'Escorts', 'teen wannabes', and have no celebrity (no matter how small) value upon which to justify a post of their own. She is one of the few, if not the only one of the Berlusconi's Babes posts to qualify.

Default Actress: Katharina Schratt

Katharina Schratt was an Austrian actress. She took an early interest in the theatre, and her parents' efforts to discourage this only increased her ambition. At 18, despite family opposition she joined the Hoftheater in Berlin, achieving considerable success in a short time. She then went back to Austria after only a few months, to join the Viennese city theater. She soon came to the notice of the 'stage door Johnnies' (or whatever the Austrian equivalent was), and one, Hungarian aristocrat Nikolaus Kiss de Ittebe pursued and married her in 1879. She then toured overseas, and appeared on stage in New York, after which she returned permanently to Vienna's Hofburgtheater, She was one of Austria's most popular actresses until she retired in 1900 ....

But, her private life wasn't quite as placid, she appeared at the 1885 Industrial Exhibition in Vienna and attracted the roving eye of the Emperor Franz Joseph, who invited her to perform for visiting Czar Alexander III of Russia. He soon invited her to perform for him betwixt the bedsheets and she became Franz Joseph's intimate companion and mistress .... and they stayed together, even after the murder of the Emperor's wife, Elisabeth, in 1898.

They had one falling out 1900, due to a difference in opinions, but after about a year resumed their affair, and remained together until his death in November 1916 ..... one assumes that her husband reaped the usual rewards for his acquiescence ... titles or promotions. She was amply rewarded with generous gifts including a mansion near the Schönbrunn Palace, and a three-story palace on the Kärntner Ring, just across from the Vienna State Opera ... handy for work then.

After the death of Franz Joseph, she lived completely withdrawn in her palace on the Kärntner Ring. She turned down large financial offers for her memoirs (but then she had a decent pension from Franz). In later years, Schratt became deeply religious (don't they all?). After her death in 1940 at the age of 86, she was buried in the Hietzing Cemetery in Vienna.

Trivia:
  • It is said that Franz Joseph's wife Empress Elisabeth actually promoted the relationship between the actress and the Emperor

Default Model: Michelle Leslie

Michelle Leslie (aka Michelle Lee), is an Australian model, who started working after her father gave her a course at a modeling school as a 15th birthday present. She took another course and then left school in order to pursue a full time modeling career. She became one of the "most prominent catwalk and catalogue models" in the state ... naturally TV beckoned, and she was in one of those interminable "Reality" shows that plague modern TV schedules .... this one was called ' Search for a Supermodel' in 2000. She couldn't bypass the beauty contest either, and in the same year she was first runner-up in the 2000 Miss World Australia pageant held in Darwin. Her exotic looks (she was half Filipino) meant she was in big demand within Asia, appearing under the name "Michelle Lee".

But then came the 'Oops' moment .... In August 2005, two pills were discovered by police in her handbag at open-air dance party at GWK park on the Indonesian (and Hindu) island of Bali, but which as we all know is run by the largely Muslim country of Indonesia. They were suspected as being drugs, and a blood test found traces of amphetamines in her system (the pills turned out to be the drug ecstasy). In a classic, 'Why me ...its someone else's fault' moment, Indonesian police said that after her initial denials, she apparently claimed that the pills were given to her by a friend, "Mia" (another model named Nameera Azmaan), who not surprisingly strenuously denied having given them to Ms Leslie

The then Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, commented after her arrest that Australians caught with drugs "can't expect the Government to bail them out" .... So threatened with a possible 15 yrs in an Indonesian prison, her crack defence team of legal weasels pulled out all the stops ....
  • Firstly, a report from a Sydney doctor was provided to prosecutors stating that she was 'addicted to prescription medication', which was really lucky because as it so happens, this reduced the maximum possible sentence from 15 years, to 3 months!
  • Then Ms Leslie began wearing Islamic dress in prison and announced through a spokesman that she had converted to the islam some eighteen months prior to her arrest (without anyone knowing, what with her wearing next to no clothes on model shoots)... which was a lucky turn of events as well (she was on a role!).
  • She then donned a burqa on one occasion when she appeared in court, and opted to wear Islamic dress, such as traditional Muslim hijab, until she was released from Prison.
The trial concluded with her being found guilty of using a prohibited substance. She was sentenced to three months in jail but, in another stroke of good fortune, due to her having served the three months already in custody, she was freed the next day. She was deported to Singapore where she spent time with friends and family before returning to Australia .... and so with one bound she was free!!

Oddly, her fervour for being a muslim apparently diminished with every air mile travelled away from Indonesia ..... and by the time she arrived in the land of OZ, she was back to 'normal', backtracking on her conversion. She gave an interview stating that she did not "really know what makes you or not makes you a muslim", and that she was "not a practising muslim".... gosh I am surprised. Cynics might suspect that she may have been fibbing about being a muslim ... but not me, oh no ... the religious clothing was now described as just a defence against prison rape by the guards, and to stop the press viewing her. And this from a Lingerie model! ... she wore tight-fitting clothes when she left Indonesia .... see below

Some muslims now suggested that she stop modelling (especially in little or no clothes), as it wasn't allowed to muslim's, but by April 2006, she was back modelling swimwear again ... her career then took a different turn in 2007, she launched a range of clothing for dogs, and got engaged to a Non muslim. Some critics later accused her of having "introduced the world to disposable Islam" ... and incidentally thus risking death for being an 'apostate' .... she was lucky once again, because no death threats.

Trivia:
  • Albert Leslie her father, was later known both as a former Olympian (Basketball 1968), and as assistant coach to the Adelaide 36ers basketball team.
  • At the time of arrest, Leslie was in the company of Ms Azman and, allegedly, one of the sons of the then Coordinating Minister for the Economy and a Billionaire muslim, and two other unidentified men .... not hard to guess that they were another couple of religious hypocrites, who according to their religion should not have been drinking alcohol, or popping pills with western models at a 'rave' either. But possibly lucky for her, as the fear of the scandal if she had named names may have 'helped' the court give her a light sentence.

Default Actress: Pepi Lederer

Pepi Lederer was an American actress and writer. She was born in to a theatrical family, her mother, Reine Davies (née Douras) was a stage actress and the sister of actresses Rosemary Davies and Marion Davies, while her father, George Lederer, produced musical comedies. Her lucky or unlucky break came when her aunt, Marion Davies became the mistress of William Randolph Hearst ... and Hearst took responsibility for the well being of Pepi and her several siblings, so she spent a good deal of her youth at Hearst Castle.

She had ambitions to become an actress as well, but her aunt and Hearst were far more interested in the career of her brother and although she had a small part in the movie 'Her Cardboard Lover', and also a part in 'The Fair Co-ed' in 1927 (which was left on the cutting room floor), it was obvious that she wasn't going to make it. She then discovered she was pregnant ... she had an abortion. She allegedly claimed afterward that she had been 'raped while unconscious drunk' .... She went to London in 1930, an ended up with a token job as a writer on one of Hearst's English magazines, 'The Connoisseur', but in 1935 she returned to New York with an English girl friend 'Monica Morris' .... Ms Morris was well known in London lesbian circles. A friend told Brooks, “My God, the Stage-Door Ferret! Don’t tell me Monica has latched onto Pepi!”. Apparently Monica had earned her nick-name because she was the most predatory among the group of girls who had fought over Tallulah Bankhead when she became a star of the London theatre in 1923.

Though she was considered a captivating girl, her acting ambitions were stalled in the blocks, and she had turned her voracious appetite's, to sex, rich foods, alcohol, and perhaps inevitably, cocaine .... She was later exposed as a girl who had swung both ways as she and screen goddess Louise Brooks were 'close friends' (she first met Brooks at San Simeon in 1928), and Brooks later claimed to friends, that they had been romantically involved for a while. Lederer also told friends she would never forget the look on her Aunt Ethel’s face when she opened a bedroom door to a Hearst house on Lexington Avenue, and found her in bed with a black actress, Nina May McKinney (the lead black actress in King Vidors 1929 film "Hallelujah").

By 1935, back in New York, her drug addiction had overtaken her life, and her aunt Marion and Hearst had her committed to a mental hospital to receive a 'drug cure' ..... while she was in their care, she either fell while trying to escape, or jumped out of a window, the fall killing her near instantly. Monica Morris was given $1,000 and deported from the US after the funeral (Mr Hearst got what he wanted in those days) ... Hearst newspapers reported that Lederer had been suffering from 'acute melancholia'.

Trivia:
  • Nicknamed "Peppy" as a child for her mischievous and high-spirited personality.
  • Pepi‘s sense of humor gave her every chance to expose a guests vanities while humoring the rest of the guests. Claire Windsor’s falsies and writer Elinor Glyn’s red wig would mysteriously disappear from their bedrooms while they slept.
  • She would feed Louella Parsons an “exclusive” item that would appear in her syndicated Hearst column, and which would later have to be retracted.
  • Her brother Charlie Lederer, became a well-known screenwriter.

Default Model: Delicia Cordon

Delicia Cordon is a model ..... something of a specialist one might say. If you are like me, you will have probably not seen her on television in a music video She has appeared in music videos for hip hop artists such as Jagged Edge, Ludacris, John Legend, Plies, T-Pain, Kanye West and Twista .... one of the videos was for the song “Money Maker”. She has also done many photo shoots and posed for many men’s magazines including Smooth, Complex, SHOW, Black Men’s, XXL and King, where no doubt some of you will have seen her . ... She is also an aspiring actress. She has apparently appeared in the Lifetime Television movie, 'Girls Night Out' and more recently she worked in the urban drama 'Days of Wrath', She even has her own modeling video available at Best Buy ..... a look at the pictures may give you a clue as to her talents.

Needless to say, as a low level 'celeb', she had a boyfriend cut from the same cloth as her .... he was the younger brother of ex NFL quarterback Michael Vick and in June 2008 they were having an altercation in the car when a motor bike cop approached them. He challenged them about their argument and asked for identification ... at this point Vick sped away.

Needless to say the the police caught up with them, and charged him with DUI, eluding police, driving on the wrong side of the road, reckless driving and driving on a suspended license and Delicia with being drunk in public ....

Possible picture ... this picture turns up on some searches and it looks like her in her police photo, but I am not sure as it was only on one site and is supposed to be pre-tattoo. I put it up so that you can make your own minds up.



Videos:

You can see her here ... but most of her videos are on web sites now.

Default Actress: Fay Templeton

Fay Templeton was an American stage actress. She was born into a theatrical family, with both her parents were actors/vaudevillians (John Templeton and Alice Vane), so it was no surprise that she made her stage debut aged 3 and eventually her Broadway debut in 1900 (aged 25). Needless to say she grew up rather precocious, and with an early interest in men ..... but more of that later.

Her stage career was getting gradually more successful and in 1885, she made her formal debut in a revival of 'Evangeline' which ran for 201 performances. In this show, she displayed talent as both a comedian and mimic. This led to her taking on a “trouser role,” (cross dressing as a man) ...she was a success but the play folded. She formed her own opera company and starred in various operettas, none of which fared well financially. In 1895, she starred in another 'trouser role' in 'Excelsior, Jr'. at the Olympic Theater. Unfortunately she was becoming somewhat portly by now, and joined the stock company of comedy duo Joe Weber and Lew Fields in 1896 ...she stayed with them and then in 1906 moved to the George M. Cohan show 'Forty-Five Minutes from Broadway' playing the lead. A Few months later she married and announced her retirement from the stage.

In 1911, Weber and Fields invited her to their reunion with a Jubilee touring company tour, which lasted five months and broke all records for touring companies. In 1913, Templeton again announced her retirement but in 1925, she appeared in an old-timer’s show at the Palace Theater, working with Weber and Fields. Asked if she would continue to perform, she replied, “It’s been great fun, but it’s a new Broadway and a new theater, and hereafter I’ll be content to look on from out front.”

Guess what, she returned to the stage again in 1926 to play Buttercup in a revival of Pinafore. Again, she claimed it was her last appearance on stage. But, well you know whats coming .... in 1932 lack of finances forced her to return to the stage to earn a living, appearing in Jerome Kern’s Roberta as Aunt Minnie, a dress shop owner in Paris. Bob Hope, in his stage debut, handled the comedy. She had only one song, “Yesterday.” The show ran for nine months.

She finally retired for good in 1936 (more retirements than Frank Sinatra), when she entered the Actors’ Fund Home in New Jersey. On October 3, 1939, she died in San Francisco, California, where she had moved to live with a cousin. She is buried in Kensico Cemetery in Valhalla, New York; few attended her funeral.

As you might expect with her having a post here, her private life was 'interesting' ... as mentioned earlier, she grew up around young men (more than was normal for a Victorian girl .... so 'Quelle surprise!' aged just 15 she was off and running on the men stakes, when she eloped with one Billy West, a blackface minstrel performer, but they separated after a honeymoon of just six weeks (and were divorced 3 years later) .... well, at least she was 'a woman' now

Now that she was broken in so so speak, she was able to form male relationships, and between shows, in 1887, she began living with a Mr Howell Osborne, a wealthy broker; there is no record that they ever married, and the two had no children. The two lived in England and toured the continent for several years. Some sources claim that they had kept their marriage 'a secret' because his family threatened to disinherit him if he ever married an actress .... he died in 1895 and she was left no money.

Finally she married a Pittsburgh industrialist William Patterson, co-founder of Heyl & Patterson Inc, and she and Patterson also had no children. His death in 1931 left her broke, he apparently had left her no funds, or he had lost them.

Trivia:
  • In the 1942 musical, 'Yankee Doodle Dandy', Templeton was portrayed by actress Irene Manning.
  • She refused most film work when she had the chance, this accelerated her loss of fame but she has some film credits.
  • She was described as "The Toast of the Gay 90's".
  • One of her co-stars in the original Broadway production of "Roberta" was Bob Hope.
