Woke up this morning anticipating the party tonight. Today is Marilyn Monroe’s birthday! She would’ve been 89 years old. I plan on celebrating her life with friends at Hotel Roosevelt in the Marilyn Monroe suite. Monroe lived there for quite some time & often posed for shoots by the pool in the early 1950s. She has been such an inspiration to me ever since I can remember. There are so many positive qualities Marilyn had that should be recognized & celebrated. Growing up, I became fascinated with the phenomenon of her & the light that she carried. I had Marilyn dolls, Marilyn posters, Marilyn movies, Marilyn dresses, Marilyn CDs… you name it, I had it. Through the years of studying her, I learned that – not only did she exude immense beauty & sexuality – but I began to realize how incredibly smart & talented this woman was. In her day, she often felt slighted & misunderstood. Very few people believed she was intelligent or even respected her. Even today, I think when people hear the name, Marilyn Monroe, they immediately think of the ‘dumb blonde’ persona that she played up… but Marilyn was anything but dumb. She was a wise soul who exercised her talents & studied constantly. She knew that if she built her image from the inside out, it would be effective & successful – she was right.

And as for the dark side of Monroe…

… everyone’s story has light chapters & chapters that… well … aren’t so light … I choose to focus on the positive ones.

Happy Birthday, Miss Monroe…
You’re truly missed but your brilliance lives on …
