“No Wire Hangers!” is one phrase unfortunately tied to Joan Crawford. We all know the film “Mommie Dearest” was inspired by Joan’s adopted daughter, Christina’s, memories - but did Christina get beaten with a wire hanger? No. Christina has now admitted that the “wire hanger” incident never happened as it was portrayed in the film. Yes, Joan didn’t want her clothes or her children’s clothes placed on wire hangers but Christina was never BEATEN with a wire hanger. The scene in “Mommie Dearest” is one of a few glorified scenes in the film “Mommie Dearest.” Christina was recorded saying this in an interview only recently.
Gabriel strikes again! I was inspired by this.
Oh btw, I COLORED GUYZ!
