I never heard of her Jen??
B-movie queen and legendary blonde bombshell pinup Jeanne Carmen died on Thursday after a battle with lymphoma.
A 1950's Hollywood party girl and model, Carmen was known for claiming to be a close confidant of Marilynn Monroe—long rumored to have had lesbian affairs—and a lover of such famous celebrities as Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
Born in Paragould, Ark., Jeanne Laverne Carmen was often labeled as the "little country girl" who ran away from home when she was 13 to pursue stardom in New York.
A gorgeous platinum blonde, Carmen landed an off-Broadway job as a burlesque dancer and later modeled as a pinup. At 18, Carmen picked up skills as a trick golfer from trick shot master Jack Redmond and claims she used her golfing skills to hustle pro golfers with Las Vegas mobster Johnny Roselli, according to the Associated Press.
