Bettie Page was a 1950s cover girl and was known for her brunette hair and slanty eyed comehither looks. I just got news that she has been hospitalized after suffering a massive heart attack. Given her age I am sure she must be quite aged by now. The hospital staff has announced that she is critically ill.
In fact she is 85 years old and she is in the intensive care unit of the hospital. I’m also getting rumors that she is in coma right now. Betty page was in fact a secretary turned model who has been acknowledged to set up the stage for a liberal revolution during the rebellious 1960s. She became so famous during her time that boys and men had her posters stuck on the locker rooms and dormitories.
After achieving fame and stardom and also earning a lot of money Bettie page moved out of the public eye even quicker because by then she was battling mental illness and also got too much into religion. In fact her biography states that she became a born-again Christian during this period which is extremely strange given her past profession of modeling.
I’m sure a lot of baby boomers would remember very the hunt would cherish the days spent dreaming about her during their student days. So are you one of them and you going to miss her. Is an era coming to an end. Do you think a cultural icon is going to pass away. What are your views on this.
