James Dean's Secret Shouldn't Have Been a Secret at All

Evidently, it has come to light that the actor James Dean was molested by his minister as a child. Liz Taylor made a journalist (Sessums) promise not to reveal it until she died. I find it thoroughly sickening. I loved James Dean. I have photos of him and Marlon Brando in my bar area at home.

I guess, understandably, it really bothered him in to his adult years. I just wish Jimmy had not felt the need to keep it a secret. It sure as fuck wasn't his fault. May the minister rot in hell.

I wonder what secrets Michael Jackson told her?

You are full of gems today - light workload?

Dean was a victim of the times - he couldn't talk about it - the victim always carried the shame.

It's a self-imposed working vacation day. Laugh.

That really could have affected his self-esteem. Very sad.
