Bettie Paige Died - at 85 years old

The LATimes reports "Bettie Page, the brunet pinup queen with a shoulder-length pageboy hairdo and kitschy bangs whose saucy photos helped usher in the sexual revolution of the 1960s, has died. She was 85."

"Bettie Mae Page was born April 22, 1923, in Nashville. She was the oldest girl among Roy and Edna Page's six children."

Although Betty has fame around the world, her personal life story is full of heart ache and I think reading about her life would be a good idea for any aspiring model or for a girl who wants to work in the entertainment business.

The article in the LATIMES touches upon her life struggles here.

She might be a woman many have wanted and admired for her free spirit and beauty. But her life story is a different story.
