|My name is Melinda. I live in
Ontario, Canada. I have been a Marilyn fan/collector for over 20 years. I
have been running the Marilyn and the Camera website since 2000. It is a
labour of love for me. I enjoy sharing my passion for Marilyn with other
For those of you who have been visiting the site the past couple of years - I'm sure the recent photos of me are a surprise! I have been a blonde for a long time but I decided it was time for a change. I don't know how Marilyn kept it up all those years. It is a lot of work. So I have now joined the dark side. I tell people I am going through my Norma Jeane phase :)
My first introduction to Marilyn came as a result of being a huge Madonna fan. The "Material Girl" Video had
come out and everyone was comparing her to someone named Marilyn Monroe. I saw a brief clip from Marilyn's "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" number on the news and I began wondering who this beautiful woman was?
I picked up my first book "Marilyn" by Barris/Steinem and I was absolutely captivated by her and I still am today.
I don't subscribe to
the conspiracy theories about the Kennedy's and the mob. My belief is
that her death was an accident. I don't think she wanted to kill herself
as she had so much to live for at that time but her dependency on pills and
alcohol was too much. There was no one there to save her.
My passion for Marilyn has lead to some appearances in the media.
I love to travel. I have visited LA for 45th and 50th Marilyn Memorial. You can look at photos from my various trips here. TRAVEL REPORTS
