|Beschreibung:||Raquel Welch, image via WikipediaBy BOB ANDELMAN (email)
Mr. Media Radio
The lasting image of Raquel for me will always be of her bodice-bursting work in Three Musketeers. I was too young then to know her as Loana in One Million B.C., although the poster of her in a prehistoric, pre-PETA, doeskin bikini did make a certain impression later.
Today she?s promoting her new book, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, which is short on Hollywood at times but long on beauty and health tips and along the way presents a virtual manifesto for the modern, mature woman. I think this story will appeal to two types of women: those of any age who want to be like Raquel, and those who think a woman as sexy and famous as Raquel Welch couldn?t possibly relate to their lives. Because, from what I read in Beyond the Cleavage, I think she does.
The 14-year-old boy in me is extremely excited to welcome Raquel Welch to today?s show; the 50-year-old man in me is trying to weigh her willingness at 70 to date younger men and whether it?s worth leaving my wife of 22 years for a shot. I?ll let you know how that stands in 30 minutes.
RAQUEL WELCH audio excerpt: "I was never interested in that (nude pictures of myself). It's not the kind of thing I was seeking out. Lots of fans send pictures of bikinis that are wet (to be autographed) and I replace them with something else."
