Goodbye Norma Jean




Each Friday I write a short story in exactly 55 words. If you'd like to join in the fun and games, write your story, visit G-Man and let him know you've posted.

Early years curling hair and applying makeup. The promise of stardom. Known as actress, model, singer and sex symbol. Bringing her little joy. Troubled life of illness and personal problems. Probable suicide at the age of thirty six was no way to end a life. What could have become of Norma Jean, fifty years on?  

Have a great weekend all!

A shame the way stardom burns out the brightest stars.

It is sad that she died so young ~ I cannot imagine her growing old though ~

She was a talent that will never go out of style. So much has been written, who knows what is true! Suicide? I wonder...

Hmmmm, she could have created her own make up line or clothes line or just enjoyed being swooned over by men.

Enjoyed this. Hope your weekend is a great one Karen. Hugs to you both
