Christina Crawford, the young girl adopted by Joan Crawford in 1940, recently appeared on the Joy Behar show.
Christina and Joan Crawford
Joy asked Christina about Joan's relationship with rival Bette Davis, and also about the alleged lesbian affair between Joan and Marilyn Monroe. Christina sounds pretty convinced there was a sexual relationship between Marilyn and Joan, yet she does acknowledge that she was very young when the rendezvous may have occurred.

"Forever Marilyn" fans, it's time to say goodbye.
The giant Marilyn Monroe sculpture with the forever billowing skirt has stood at Palm Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way in Palm Springs for a year, but it will be moving on in June. Before then, there's a film series and farewell party planned. So go, snap some pictures and see the movies that made her a film icon.
The deal: The Forever Marilyn Outdoor Movie Series on May 3 will screen the comedy "Monkey Business" (1952), in which Monroe stars with Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers, and the thriller "Niagara" with Joseph Cotten on May 17. There also are screenings of new short films from ShortFest on June 7. All events start at 8:30 p.m.
Monroe's 86th birthday and farewell party takes place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. June 1 with musical performances, especially Jeffrey Allen as Elton John serenading the 26-foot statue, and free birthday cake too.
The apartment building located at 882 North Doheny Drive sold recently for $3.72 million. The property was owned by the former wife of actor James Coburn.
Marilyn lived here twice: 1953-54 and 1961-62. She occupied apartment #3. Her final Christmas was spent at this location. In order to ensure privacy, Marilyn used the pseudonym "Marjorie Stengel," which was printed on the doorbell and mailbox.
