Kirk Douglas Brutally Raped Natalie Wood When She Was 16?

Image
Natalie Wood was a child star who went on to have a very successful adult career. Unfortunately the beautiful actress was also the victim of a horrific sexual assault. When she was fifteen years old Natalie was raped by an older actor. Although she never went to the police she told several friends that her rapist was actor Kirk Douglas.

Did Kirk Douglas rape Natalie Wood?
This story concerns one of the biggest male stars ever, and one of the most beloved female stars to ever live.

One day she was invited to meet with this movie star about an upcoming major role. This man was a legend already, and was very powerful. Thinking he herself was powerful and savvy, she accepted the invite in his hotel room. She never saw it coming.

Without even discussing the film, this actor (drunk already) began making a pass at her. She politely declined, and excused herself. He wouldn’t have it. He literally threw her down, slapped the hell out of her, and ripped her clothes off. He shouted obscenities …

Red White and Blue Cupcakes Recipes for the 4th of July

Image
Happy Independence Day… early!  These cupcakes were going to be my Fourth of July treat, but all my nieces and nephews are coming today and I wanted them to get to enjoy them too.   So I’m a week early.  I’m pretty sure I won’t hear any complaints.

My kids were so excited over these, I barely got to frost them before their hands were reaching to snatch them away from me.  They loved biting into them and seeing all that color.  And who wouldn’t?  These are a perfect dessert to have at a Fourth of July picnic or party, don’t you think?  Make enough for the grown-ups too.  They’re hard to resist.

To help speed things along, I used a boxed cake mix.  The white cake is a good palette for the colors.  I divided the mix into thirds, and added red and blue to two bowls.  I just layered each color into each cupcake liner and voila.  I found the cute cupcake liners in the dollar section at Target, so I was lovin’ that.  Super frugal dessert with a huge presentation.  (The sprinkles were from a pa…

White Pizza Recipe

Image
Think cheese pizza is boring? Try changing it up with the more sophisticated White Pizza recipe. An herb and garlic infused olive oil is spread on a pizza crust that is topped with three cheeses for a delicious, cheesy pizza.

We have been a pizza making family for many, many years now. One of my daughter’s first favorite foods was pizza. And today, pizza is my youngest’s favorite thing that I make.

But when it comes to pizza night, the kids always choose the same. Cheese for one, pepperoni for the other. Not that I think there is anything wrong with cheese pizza. Or with pepperoni pizza. But sometimes you need something a little extra. Like garlic and rosemary brushed over your crust. And then topped with 3 different cheeses. And a little red pepper flake for a hint of heat.
