SUCH a great story. i love when people use their positions in life and popularity for good. if you're gonna manipulate people, you may as well do some good while you're at it! haha! :)

Thank you for sharing such a positive Marilyn story! So much of what made her special gets lost.

Mrs. Monroe a very positive person from


Just when I think I'm slipping into cynicism along comes a a story like that. Wonderful. I've always regarded Ella as one of life's miracles, and I've always liked Marilyn. Now she's even higher in my regard, a lot higher in fact.


Wow. That is awesome. I didn't have an opinion on Marilyn one way or the other, but this definitely puts her in a good light for me.

a lovely story. thank you!


Marilyn Monroe and I have something in common. We both think Ella Fitzgerald was phenomenal. Great story and even better photograph.

Who but Marilyn could make a size 16 look so good that we all want to look like that. She is not just an icon, she was a whole person and articles like this make us remember that. Good job Tina!
