The Course of True Love

September 25, 2009

Luxury-Cover-0209WEBIn honor of Valentine’s Day Luxury Las Vegas magazine profiled select local couples on their romance, including Norm Clarke and his favorite “Leggy Blonde”, girlfriend Cara Roberts.

Shakespeare said, “When love speaks, the voice of all the gods makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.” Erich Segal said, “Love is never having to say you’re sorry.” And a lot of other people have said lots of other things about love. What all the stories and words and experiences teach us is that we cannot define love and all we do know about it is that every love story has an ending that, at the outset, we cannot predict. Some are bittersweet; some are sweet. Some—works in progress—are open-ended.

Singin’ in the Rain

From Norm’s Column March 18, 2008
Vera Goulet, widow of the late singing star Robert Goulet, is flying to Los Angeles today to attend the funeral of Altovise Davis, the widow of Sammy Davis Jr. She died Saturday in Los Angeles after suffering a stroke. She was 65. The Davises and Goulets were close friends for years and often traveled together. During one of their trips, a 1975 visit to rainy Paris, Vera Goulet said their limo pulled up to a stoplight. “Sammy got out of the limo and did his ‘Singing In the Rain'” (song and dance routine) in front of a disbelieving crowd. “It was spontaneous. This was his personality. Altovise just laughed and laughed.” When Robert died in October 2007, “the second call I got was Altovise. The first was Julie Andrews,” Robert’s Broadway co-star in “Camelot.”

nypmasthead2Recommended: Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke’s new book, Vegas Confidential: Sinsational Celebrity Tales which is jam-packed with gossipy stories of (mostly) bad star behavior while cavorting in Sin City. Norm’s been on the Vegas michaelstarrentertainment beat since 1999. That he’s managed to keep a sense of humor about some of the insufferable stars he’s covered (including Jerry Lewis and Robin Williams) is remarkable.
