Ava behind the scenes of Mogambo (1953), doing her makeup. Ava said that her character as Honey Bear (or Eloise) Kelly was one of her few on screen roles that were anything close to what she was really like in real life. A great quote that comes from the film was one about wine where Ava’s character says “they all bring out my better nature”! Though I haven’t watched all of Ava’s films yet, Mogambo is my favourite of hers!🎀.

Fun Fact Friday(eve): I’m a Hollywood Memorabilia collector. Have been on the sly for many years & have only chatted about my treasures recently.
Here’s a story about this one.... Lucille Ball is one of my all time favorite human beings so I’m always on the hunt for something of hers or more specifically a costume design sketch of hers....more on that in a second.... My 2nd favorite human is Debbie Reynolds & in 2014 I went to her 3rd & final auction. I had eyed this sketch by Travilla (famously Marilyn Monroe’s go-to designer) of her but couldn’t afford it at the time. Three years later I was out of the country when I woke up with jetlag around 2am & within 4mins I got the ABC News alert that Debbie had passed away. I went on her Studio Store (an online source w/ some items that didn’t sell at her auction) & this sketch was on there. I bought it immediately. #noregrets 🙌🏼
Yesterday, I sold it at auction with @profilesinhistory At first I was sad because I really did love that sketch and my story behind it....but then I acquired a Lucille Ball costume design sketch from “I Love Lucy” from the same auction❣️ Morale of this little story? Sometimes if you let something you love go, something even better is around the corner😊 ....and also live your fucking life, do what you want and be a baller💁🏼♀️😉💸 #hollywoodcostumes#hollywoodmemorabilia#debbiereynolds#lucilleball#costumedesign#costumeballer#sidehussle#secrethobby#nikkistreasuretrove#imAriel#lookatthisstuffisntitneat#whyistherenomermaidemoji

Happy 103rd Birthday, Frank!
“One day Frank took me to lunch and asked me a lot of questions about my feelings for Eddie Fisher. I told Frank that i loved Eddie and wanted to marry him.
“You should think twice about this, Schweetie,” he warned me. “Schweetie” was his nickname for me, said with a lisp. ‘It’s a hard life, marrying a singer. I know.’
Frank’s earnest attempt to keep me from heartbreak was very touching” | from Unsinkable Debbie Reynolds🖤.
