💙Debbie Reynolds followed all the twists of Marilyn’s lurid love life, but never thought the worse of her. ‘We knew each other well because we attended the same church,’ she said. ‘Marilyn was very religious, which may surprise some people. Her faith was very important to her and I think that it helped her many times. 'She told me it was the one thing in her life that hadn’t let her down. She’d attend church looking very low-key: she could switch that “Marilyn” persona on and off. ‘After my marriage ended, she was concerned for me as a single mother with two children. I think having a child would maybe have saved her, because at 36 she was on her own. ‘I saw her two days before she died. She looked wonderful: super-slim and very girlish. So all the stuff you read about her being depressed and washed-up wasn’t true. Or if it was, she was doing a brilliant acting job of hiding it.
‘I’d warned her to be careful with the Kennedys because they just used people. I mean, Joe Kennedy [JFK’s father] was known for that. ‘She was a movie star and that was something both brothers liked. But once they’d used her like a tissue, they thought she’d just blow away. But she wouldn’t listen. ‘She was such a sweet and innocent girl, but she was used by men. For all her fame and beauty, they took advantage of her and she paid the ultimate price.’ Did Marilyn take an overdose after being dumped by JFK’s brother, Robert? Debbie shook her head. ‘I believe she was murdered because too many people were afraid the truth would come out,’ she said. ‘When you look at the evidence and the way people messed around in that vital time when she was dying — well, none of it stacks up. But we’ll never know the truth.’💙 #marilynmonroe #marilynette #marilynetteforever #marilynettes #marilynmonroe #normajean #normajeane
