Marilyn Monroe was a human being, too.

A brief history about my admiration for Marilyn Monroe… She was a human being with real feelings, thoughts, and emotions. She is more than a passing fad, memorabilia, or dollar signs. This is what she means to me. Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 — August 5, 1962), was a Golden Globe award winning American actress, model and sex symbol. She was known for her comedic skills and screen presence and became one of the most popular movie stars of the 1950s and early 1960s. At the later stages of her career, she worked toward serious roles with a measure of success. However, she faced disappointments in her career and personal life during her later years. Her death has been subject to speculation and conspiracy theories. Early years Mrs. Norma Jeane Dougherty, YANK Magazine, 1945 Mrs. Norma Jeane Dougherty, YANK Magazine, 1945 While her husband was in the Merchant Marine during World War II, Norma Jeane Dougherty moved in with her mother-in-law and started to work in the Radioplane Company factory (owned by Hollywood actor Reginald Denny), spraying airplane parts with fire retardant and inspecting parachutes. Army photographer David Conover was scouting local factories, taking photos for a YANK magazine article about women contributing to the war effort. He saw her potential as a model, and she was soon signed by The Blue Book modeling agency. In his book Finding Marilyn, Conover claimed the two had an affair that lasted years. Shortly after signing

Marilyn had a such a beautiful soul.And you can see that just looking at her in her movies,interviews or photos.Not stoping only at her shapes like some people do but in her eyes and the aura thats sparkle around her-the real true person that she was trying making her dreams come true and fighting with her demons.

    These people do not see in Marilyn what I see, A beautiful human being with a good heart, They do not see this because they cannot look past the ‘sex goddess’ label she has now been given or the fact that she’s now portrayed as a brand. Thank you once again for this wonderful video.

  13. This is truely beautiful, I could really feel that this came straight from the heart and I found myself nodding along to everything you said. I have been accused many times from people who do not like Marilyn, that I put her up on a pedestal to which she does not deserve to be on in their eyes, But to me, that is where she belongs as through my early teenage years, my admiration and interest for her helped me through some rough patches.

    Christie, you don’t stop to amaze me with your heartfelt videos. Thank you so very much!
    Just like Eli Wallach told Marilyn as Roslyn in “THE MISFITS” “You have the gift for life!” Christie, you do, too. When other people just sit around, you do something about the abuse of Marilyn Monroe for example. Your face and everything opened up while you were talking. It is amazing to listen to your love for Marilyn, and I agree with Jen’s comments too.

    As long as there are people like you around, Marilyn will never be forgotten and treated the right, the respectful way!
    We can relate to Marilyn best–through our pain. And don’t you ever let these jealous freaks attack you–they know that you are for real–and that is why they hate. They also called Norma Jeane Baker and Marilyn Monroe terrible names!

    Just FYI: when we needed help and support for MM so desperately–I wrote two very deep and honest emails to Mariah Carey’s assistent–I never even got a reply. These so called “stars” rip off Marilyn, but to protect–to honor her? Why? She is dead they think–but we all know, that Marilyn Monroe will never “die.”
    She will be known in 2000 years from now, just like Tutanchamun or Cleopatra.
    Love and Thanks and Friends Through Marilyn!

    i feel for you and how marilyn has been treated. i get sick when i hear people talking about that stuff in her name. my friends talk about the cheap t-shirts with marilyn from target and walkmart and think its cool. not what marilyn was about. they are missing the point.

    Hey. Your vid was touching. I got to know MM thru Jen. Sad what this beautiful lady had happen to her. She had a good heart most of all.
