Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Hurricane Fay and weird relationships of the 1970s.

The strengthening of tropical storm Fay down in the southeast makes me think of two things: (1) I’m glad I don’t have to go through the hurricane brouhaha this summer, the stocking up of H20 and toilet paper, the checking of the windows and all other pertinent batting down of hatches. (What are hatches? Why not latches? It makes perfect sense).

And (2) that no matter how many times I remember this bit of trivia, I will not be able to digest it: Volatile actress Faye Dunaway was once married to the lead singer of the J. Geils Band.
Peter Wolf and Faye Dunaway in the 1970s

Yes, Peter Wolf, the gentleman who pranced about in videos for songs such as “Freeze Frame” and “Centerfold.” Lest we forget his solo smash “Lights Out.” He and Mommie Dearest were husband and wife from 1974-1979.

But, then, so many strange bedfellows came from the 1970s: Gene Simmons and Diana Ross.

Liza Minnelli and Peter Allen.

Bob Marley and Vogue editor Anna Wintour (I must have missed the season when dreadlocks were a must-have fashion).

Linda Rondstadt and Governor Jerry Brown of California.

Governor Ronald Reagan and the State of California. Yes, the Dems voted for Cowboy Ronny. I think California only goes Republican for movie stars. See: Arnold Schwarzenegger.

They always say the drugs were more potent back then and sometimes I don’t doubt it.
