Happy 103rd Birthday, Lupe…Wherever You May Be!

Today, July 18th, 2011, would have been the 103rd birthday of Lupe Vélez. It’s been sixty-seven years since her self-inflicted death at age thirty-six. A Hollywood tragedy. So unexpected. So heartbreaking. A light that was snuffed out way too early…

Almost seventy years on from her passing and the world is STILL talking about her. Next year, at the time of my book’s release, I hope even more people are talking, only this time, I hope they’ll be talking about what REALLY happened to her on that fateful December morning in 1944. No more “died with her head in the toilet” stories…the truth is there to be told and I’ve told it. Besides, her “life” story was so much more than her death. Oh, what a life!!!

I will most certainly keep everyone posted on any updates, a cover, a confirmed title, etc., as news comes to hand.

For now, remember Lupe Vélez on her birthday…

Happy Birthday, Lupe x

  1. I knooow, here in her native country everybody believes that fake story about drowned Lupe…so sad =(

    That story of her death was what prompted me to write the book, Renata. For years, I’ve experienced people laughing about the way Lupe died, or the way they “thought” she died. I can only hope that a few people will read the facts that I’ve uncovered in my book and see the truth of the situation.

  3. yeah….I saw a mention in The Simpsons, they were making fun of that….I hate that…..=(
