Favorite Quote: On the Girl Next Door

I think more people need to listen to that. I see too many people walking around in clothes that don't need to see the outside of a bedroom, let alone the outside of a house.

Right attitude.

Typical Joan. She was tough, but she liked to play the victim a lot. I recently read a book about her entitled, oddly enough, "Not The Girl Next Door."

I love your quote posts.

When I wanted to see the boy next door, I got my binoculars.

Well . . . They do live their lives in the public eye . . . and you know how those tabloids get when they catch them without their faces on . . . :)

I LOVE this quote! And I love Joan Crawford...

Yes, please tell me, what is the point of going outside if you don't look your absolute best!

Ah yes makeup and fancy clothes, it's like dressing up a McDonald's burger as a filet mignon. It looks so delicious until the next morning when you realize you've been tricked. Thank you makeup for making halfway decent people look gorgeous all these years!

Amen to that! And I agree with 'Writer'. More people need to pay attention to this. You should always look put together when you're in public. Even if you're wearing jeans and a cap, you can certainly make it stylish!

Besides, I think celebrities above all others should keep themselves 'put together' in public. The modern hotmess of celebritards have nothing compared to the golden age of Hollywood when stars WERE stars.

Great quote! And I can soooo relate to it!

I'm usually put together when I leave the house, but there are days when my adult acne kicks in or my eyes are puffy and bloodshot from the previous day's events, and I hope with all my heart that I don't see anyone I know.

Long gone are the days of Hollywood glamour. The sights we see nowadays, women drinking pints of lager covered in tattoos and piercings and pulling their knickers out from between their arse in public. Their physical shortcomings and humble lifestyle could all be forgiven as long as they know how to eat asparagus in the proper manner. If I left the house looking like the girl next door I'd have to dye my roots gray and have all my teeth removed to get that sunken mouth look and then leave the house looking more like Joan Crawfish.

I do NOT want to go outside looking like Joan Crawford. If people wanted to see bad Joan Crawford drag, they should go to Innuendo.

Love it, apparently she was a lunatic.

I never go outside looking like Joan Crawford, I usually go outside looking like Cary Grant.
