QUEEN of quotes!For example... The Republican party should be put in dry dock and have the barnacles scraped off it's bottom."
And in response to that from another of my favorite patron saints... "I don't know alot about politics apparently, but can recognize a good party man when I see one."

Dahling Dahling DahlingHated Bette Davis
Just for you dear Bob-Tallulah on Bette- “Don’t think I don’t know who’s been spreading gossip about me. After all the nice things I’ve said about that hag. When I get hold of her, I’ll tear out every hair of her mustache!”
She had some choice words for Bette!And Bette had some for her ... as when Ed Sullivan offered Davis $10,000 to do an imitation of Bankhead on television:"Miss Bankhead isn’t well enough known nationally to warrant my imitating her.”:
And what's really funny, is that Bette tried her damnest to act like Tallulah.... Bette Davis, clearly had benefitted from studying her speech patterns, vocals and mannerisms.
supported liberal causes.
Voracious sexual appetite.
"Codeine and... bourbon."Her last words.
START - WITHOUT - ME
First class bitch!I adore her.
Zany - delightfully complex.
tempestuous, flamboyant actress
charitable, kindness and generosity. Tis true and she hid it. She was very generous to those in need, supporting disadvantaged foster children and helping several families escape the Spanish Civil War and World War II.

Sassy Sexy Smart

exhibitionist, glamour, vixen
life of party!!!!!!!
political, liberal supporter.The Bankheads of Alabama were aristocracy—her grandfather and uncle were both United States senators—and her father went on to become a successful polictian ending as a much admired Speaker of the House under Roosevelt. Tallulah, in turn, was a lifelong passionate Democrat, and took credit—some of it deserved—for helping elect both Truman and Kennedy.
famous flamboyant shenanigans
Didn't wear underwear.Some of the cast members of Lifeboat complained to director Alfred Hitchcock about the above (since Tallulah had to walk up and down a ladder leading into and out of a tank of water), and he just replied that wardrobe was somebody else's department.
"All About ME"
As Tallulah said:“Say anything about me, darling, as long as it isn't boring.”Jx
Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
