Don't Blow My Cover!


Some of you may not recognize me, because I was much younger then, but for one brief point in my career, I worked as a body double for Marilyn Monroe. You may find it hard to believe, but that girl was really shy and straight-laced. She never would show any flesh for the camera. It was her Bible-belt up-bringing, I suppose. She was very beautiful, however, and to get her career to take off, she needed to "take it off," which she refused to do. That's where I came in. I was pretty free and easy back then, so having my picture taken flashing my gams or some cleavage was no big deal. Besides, the photos were always doctored afterwards, with Marilyn's face replacing mine.

Can you imagine my surprise when I ran acrosss this photo which someone forgot to plant Marilyn's mug on? It was in one of those gossip rags you see by the checkout at the grocery store. Seems they're looking for the girl in the picture!

Now the years haven't been kind to me; I've put on the pounds since those days, and the sheer weight of it all has reduced my height by 4 or 5 inches, so the likelihood that they'll find me is pretty remote. I just wanted to make sure none of my bloggy friends would rat me out. I know you can all be trusted to keep my secret.

It's very important that I remain "incognito;" at this point in my life I don't need all the fanfare and publicity. I mean hoards of newspaper reporters and photographers hanging around outside my trailer? I could get kicked out of the park. Not to mention how my kids and grandkids would react to know that infamous Playboy centerfold was not really Marilyn, but someone near and dear to their hearts!

So I'm counting on you, my cyberfriends to keep a lid on it. If you are approached by someone from media holding that photo, you know nothing! You've never seen that person before in your life.

You're secret is probably safe with me! Probably, like not 100% certain here but most likely I won't blab it to anyone!

But WHAT A PICTURE!!!! And what a sexy story to say you were Marilyns body double, I mean not many can attest to being sexy enough to stand in for Marilyn! YOU GO GIRL!

But ya know, my lips are mostly sealed. Mostly. :)

Cunning_Linguist said...

I know exactly how you feel. All the time I'm getting "Can I have your autograph Mr. Pitt?". That's when I have to remind them that no, I am not Brad. It's especially stressful for me because Angelina keeps coming to my work and wanting me to go online for a new kid. Sheesh.... the price ya pay for looking like somebody.

What a coincidence! I was the body double for the Hulk.
Do you think I might need to talk to by GYN about those estrogen patch replacements after all?
