Today is one that I am certain will be imprinted in my brain for some time. I am allowed the privilege to host some of the finest contributors to making Marilyn's image burn alive all year round. First off is Gillette representing Marilyn Wines, thereafter Donelle from the Hollywood Museum, the largest collector of Marilyn artifacts, Scott Fortner, and the most famous MM impersonator there was, Jimmy James. I am hopefully that this is a fitting tribute to the woman I call precious and astoundingly beautiful.

Today on Heal Yourself Talk Radio, K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns is back authors of "What She Knew". We will be talking about secrets that Marilyn Monroe had and why she had those secrets.
Here is just one tidbit that they will reveal all the juicy details about on HYTR:
Marilyn was all about equal rights - a woman well before her time. In 1953, she asked the owner of the Mocambo (club) to allow Ella Fitzgerald to sing and that she would be there every night in the front row. At this time, Marilyn was coming into her own as a famous star and carried a good bit of clout. However, he still was hesitent. So, she slept with him and convinced him to do it. He did and she was in the front row every night and this is what made Ella's career.
So join us today, as we dig deeper into the life of Marilyn Monroe.
This documentary gives a different look at Marilyn Monroe from inside her head using notes and letters that she generated juxtaposed with the actions and assertions of those around her. Whether you see Marilyn Monroe as troubled, a sexpot, tragic, lost, or a bubbleheaded blond you are sure to be enlightened with this kaleidoscope of well-interpreted readings of her words by brilliant actors.
I have always believed Ms. Monroe's story was slightly tragic from a psychological perspective, but her life was much more complex. She was so much more intelligent and strategic than she has often been credited. She was like all of us who want to achieve some major mark in life, to be loved and respected, while haveing someone we can trust with our deepest thoughts, desires and life. She is an absolute representative of all of us when we are betrayed, let down, belittled, and ignored when the world refused to see past some physical representation of our true selves. Whether we are outside the average height, weight, build, and appearance of some kind. We are all more than our "meatsuits," and Marilyn Monroe went above and beyond her celebrity she gave us the opportunity to look inside ourselves and accept our incredible self-worth, no matter who we are.
