According to KSBY 6 Action News
, as of December 10th, Bettie page is still in a coma. Page was a top student who became a secretary and then went into modeling. She hoped to become a mainstream actress. With her trademark short dark bangs, her photos included a centerfold in the January 1955 issue of Playboy magazine. But it was her bondage poses that made her the target of a Senate hearing on obscenity the same year. She never had to testify.
Page was out of the public eye for decades. During that time she became a born-again Christian and had a bout with mental illness. Page resurfaced in the 1990s and occasionally granted interviews but refused to allow her picture to be taken. She told the Los Angeles Times in a March 2006 interview she wanted to be remembered as she was when she was young and in her “golden times.”
And she is being remembered today … pictured is a smiling Bettie Page.
Although the post below is a standard readout that went out in the news, there is a lot of history, sadness and life in this woman. If you have time say a little prayer for her. She broke the ground on burlesque, the famous leopard swimsuit, and still reigns as number one pinup queen of all time. Alot of sadness in her life, lost love, loneliness, and non recognition monetarily until Dave Stevens came along, the success of Rocketeer (woman based on her) and so many other things in the 90’s. (So many women want her look and her bangs : ) In 2008 she still reigns as number 1!
LOS ANGELES – Bettie Page, a 1950s pinup known for her raven-haired bangs and saucy come-hither looks, was hospitalized in intensive care after suffering a heart attack, her agent said Friday.
“She’s critically ill,” Mark Roesler of CMG Worldwide told The Associated Press.
He said the 85-year-old had been hospitalized for the last three weeks with pneumonia and was about to be released when she had the heart attack Tuesday. Page was transferred to another hospital in Los Angeles and remained in intensive care Friday.
A family friend, Todd Mueller, said Page was in a coma. When asked to confirm, Roesler said, “I would not deny that,” but he would not comment further on her condition.
Page, a secretary turned model, is credited with helping set the stage for the sexual revolution of the rebellious 1960s. She attracted national attention with magazine photographs of her sensuous figure that were tacked up on walls across the country.
Her photos included a centerfold in the January 1955 issue of then-fledgling Playboy magazine, as well as controversial sadomasochistic poses.
Page later spent decades away from the public eye, and during that time battled mental illness and became a born-again Christian.
After resurfacing in the 1990s, she occasionally granted interviews but refused to allow her picture to be taken.
Mueller credits his business dealings with Page for bringing her out of seclusion. He said he first met her in 1989 when he offered her “a bunch of money” to show up at autograph signings.
“I probably sold 3,000 of her autographs, usually for $200 to $300,” he said. “Eleanor Roosevelt, we got $40-$50. … Bettie Page outsells them all.”

Too amazing NOT to be true! Police in the UK will be offering free flip-flops to female binge drinkers who keep falling over in their heels.
Believe it or not … Drunk ladies in high heels in the UK are to be protected – at public expense – from twisting their ankles while drunk. Police will hand them flip-flops to wear outside nightclubs as they head home. The effort is part of a £30,000 drive by police and councillors to prevent ‘alcohol-related harm’.
Superintendent Chris Singer (in the photo on the right) poses with two pairs of flip-flops. As part of a £30,000 health and safety scheme, flip-flops are to be given free to drunk women to prevent injuries on their walk home.

Hmmm, bet Jimmy Buffet would think it’s a great idea … didn’t he ” blew out a flip-flop, Stepped on a pop-top, Cut his heel and had to cruise on back home,” when he was Wasted away in Margaritaville?
