At 16 torn between wanting to be popular and wanting an acting career

April 28, 1964, Tuesday. Dave K. Jack and all the guys we’re at Fosters after the Saffron meeting. (Donna and I will be modeling at the Boat Show.)

Had to go to gym detention (for wearing a bikini under my clothes.) and it was raining so I let Marilyn take my car and pick up my little sister, Billee and brother Preston at school and take them home. She picked me up at 3:30. Got home and we left for Patricia Stevens Modeling. Mommy came with us. We had a speech class and visual poise class. I told The Maybelline Story and the were real interested in it. We got home at 8:00 and I went to Fosters. It was so bitchen because everyone from Toes was there and Dave and Jack looked so cute. We talked for about an hour. There were about 20 guys in all. Dave is sorta shy in a way, because Howard always paid so much attention to me and never let me out of his sight, while Dave just stands there like I’m anyone – I don’t like it. Also Marilyn was at it again, flirting with him. I wonder if he likes her.

In the 6th grade I won a Speech Contest by telling The Maybelline Story.  Eventually a book called The Maybelline Story would come out of my passion for the history.  However, at 16 I was torn between wanting to be popular and wanting an acting and modeling career.  I hoped to be a Maybelline Model when I graduated High School.
