In 1991, Wanda Holloway asked her brother-in-law to hire a hitman to kill the mother of a girl who was competing with her daughter for a spot on the same Texas cheerleading squad. Holloway wanted the mother killed because she determined the competing girl would be so upset by the murder of her mother that she would drop out of the competition.

This is the only known picture of Elizabeth Taylor posing nude. It was an engagement gift from her to producer Mike Todd, her third husband. The picture at age 24 was taken by one of her closest friends, actor and photographer Roddy McDowall, who persuaded her that it would be done tastefully. She gave it to Todd as a present in 1956. He was killed when his private plane crashed in 1958. It was bought by private collector Jim Shaudis in 1980. After her death, he decided to release the image. by Nina Maltese

He whispered to her urgently to hide in the janitors closet and hide behind something big enough to hide her. He promised that he would come back for her in a few minutes. She did as she was told and hid behind gallons of bleach. Her confidence in her father did not waver as minutes turned to hours and loud noises came from outside of her small haven.

Dr. Bethenia Owens, the West Coast's First Female Doctor. Amazing story.   Married at 14, she tolerated a worthless husband for 4 years, until in 1858, he “whipped my baby (who was around 24 months old at the time) unmercifully, and struck and choked me.”  Then she left him. And became an extremely hard working woman, teaching and dressmaking, sending her son George to Berkley when he was 14. He became a doctor. And then, she did too. by carolyn
