Bobby Darin

"Blast From Bobby"

This "item" appeared in Louelle Parsons' column
in the April, 1963 issue of Modern Screen Magazine.

"You called me in New York to check if there is any trouble between me and Sandra," said Bobby Darin, making himself comfortable on the divan in my playroom, "---and I told you 'No.'

"But there's GOING TO BE TROUBLE if she doesn't start eating something--and I mean it."

He looked very much like he meant it--there was no kidding back of his words. I suppose I accidentally set off the blast when I remarked to Bobby, who had dropped in for "just a minute" (we both had such a nice time talking, he remained two hours!), that Sandra Dee looked very thin, too thin, in If A Man Answers.

"She won't eat a thing," went on her husband, 'I don't know what I'm going to do about it. I like to eat and I enjoy my meals. But the thought of eating seems to make Sandy sick."

In an attempt to breach any trouble I might have stirred up, I suggested, "Well, poor Sandy had a weight problem for years. I remember how I scolded her when she was just fifteen and was rushed to a hospital in great pain for taking overdoses of Epsom Salts to reduce."

"Well, she hasn't a weight problem any longer," said Bobby. "She's as thin as a rail ----- and it worries me."

Just before he left, Bobby called Sandy at home and asked if she'd like to go out for dinner that evening. But she said the baby had an allergy and she didn't want to leave him.

"See?" said Bobby, "That's what I'm talking about."

Sandy, are you listening?
