    I like her and I really likes her and JT in Grease. I am glad she is moving on , I tink that bf of hers took off because of all his money problems he has been spotted in mexico and she is a breast cancer survivor with a dbl whammy because her creepy husband was cheating on her when she was going thru her treatment.

    Her boyfriend of 9 years vanished at sea in 2005.

    Apparently she started dating this new fella last year.

    Heck, I'm sort of surprised, since I always heard that Olivia was Gay!

    My dad told me when I was a kid that he dated Olivia Newton John. He had me going for years.

    I think her old boyfriend staged his disappearance. I think he ran into financial probelms.

    I think so too. My heart was breaking for Olivia at the time because deep down she knew (or suspicioned I should say) that he faked his death too.

    I heard rumors about her being gay, too. As much as we hope the best for people, I never thought she was. I'm glad she's finally happy. She was my first love.

    LOL..I remember that store. I know she was in some pretty hot water after the fallout; many people lost their life savings. For years, the shell of the store on Melrose was still there. Anyone living in LA know if it's still there?

    I'm glad that Olivia moved on with her life. I hope that she's happy in her marriage & that she will continue to portray Bitsy Mae Harling on "Sordid Lives".

    Seems like she's still pinning for McDermott because the latter article indicates that they have gotten hits from Olivia and/or her bunch on their spider site. Or she still to some extent cares about the creep. It's one thing to care for someone and have moved on with someone new. Just hope that's all it is, and that this creep is alive and brought back to answer for stuff. JMHO.

    Yeah, I do...I am old enough to remember her comment about 'having girlfriends' on the Tonight Show in the 70s...Her "people" tried to do damage control saying that she didn't mean it in "that" way, but the fact remains that fer first husband was KNOWN to be bisexual himself. Also Hadleigh's book talked about other similarly closeted singers (Dusty Springfield, Johnny Ray, Johnny Mathis, etc) who have either since outed themselves or have been proven to be bi or gay posthumously.

    They say everyone is gay when they cannot find sopmething else to say about them..if we believed all this about who is gay then it would make 90 percent of all actors and singers are gay..and I for one am not biting on that one.

    Hadleigh interviewed her for the "Story of 'O'" chapter in the book...so what was said, she said berself. There are not that many of us (homosexuals/bisexuals) in the overall population, but it is true that there is a higher percentage of gay people in the arts. I don't find the assertions that someone is gay/bisexual as an insult to them...On the contrary, I (like lesbian comedienne Suzanne Westenhoeffer) find my opinion of them elevated!!! But, after all, I am one of them...I am gay. I am not one of those people who accuses everyone of being gay, I am just recounting things I have heard/read (yes, I do own the book). Even if you consider all the celebrities which have been mentioned in the threads about gay/reportedly gay celebs, they represent only a small fraction of celebrities as a whole. I am trying to not have a thin skin here, but--as I don't feel that being gay is bad or that the assertion that someone is gay/bi is an insult--I certainly don't intend to be dissing ONJ with my statements. I have nothing against her.

    OLIVIA Newton-John's former partner is alive and on the run after staging his own disappearance almost four years ago, according to US investigators.

    A team of private investigators from Texas said they believe Patrick McDermott has been travelling along the Mexican and South American coastline since disappearing from a fishing charter in June 2005.

    Lead investigator Philip Klein said he believed that the former cameraman had disappeared so that he could avoid paying debts and enable his teenage son Chance to receive a $A150,965 ($US100,000) life insurance policy.

    Gallery: Olivia Newton-John

    "He's alive - there's no doubt in my mind, this guy's alive," Klein said.

    "Everything was bad in this guy's life. There was nothing good.

    "Maybe in his mind if he stages his death, the insurance policy will pay off all his debts and he can leave his child a gift by pretending he's dead."

    McDermott, who had been in a relationship with Newton-John for nine years, was 48 when he disappeared after boarding a boat called The Freedom in California.

    An official report from the US Coast Guard released in November (2008) concluded that McDermott, who had previously filed for bankruptcy and owed thousands of dollars in child support payments to his ex-wife, most likely drowned.

    Klein, whose agency specialises in tracking down kidnap victims and missing people who do not want to be found, was hired by US current affairs program Dateline in March 2007 to investigator McDermott's disappearance.

    In an episode devoted to the mystery this week, Klein revealed that his agency had set up a hi-tech trap to help locate McDermott by making a website called findpatrickmcdermott .com, which secretly showed investigators the locations of people accessing the site.

    Klein said he suspected McDermott has regularly been logging on to the "spider site", with the team tracking hits from what he believed was a boat traveling along the Mexican coastline as far as South America.

    "We put what we call a trap on the web site where we can tell each I-address that comes in to the web site," Klein said.

    "The rule of thumb is always this - when you're running you always are looking over your shoulder and we're going to catch him looking at us.

    "The most interesting hits have come directly from Cabo San Lucas (in Mexico)last place anybody saw Patrick McDermott."

    Klein said he believed that Olivia Newton-John, who refused to be interviewed for the investigation, had regularly been logging on to the site to get updates on the hunt for her former partner.

    "The most unusual hits we've gotten were Olivia Newton-John when she was on tour in Asia, every hotel she was registered at and staying at there were hits from that hotel on that night where she was staying," Klein said.

    "So it's quite obvious to us that the Olivia Newton-John camp is following it."

    Klein, who claimed to have confirmed sightings of McDermott from at least 17 witnesses across Mexico, said he was confident that his team would track down their target.

    "Patrick McDermott walked off The Freedom and Patrick McDermott's running in Mexico - that simple," Klein said.

    "We're close.

    "He's going to make a mistake - they (people on the run) all make mistakes.

    "He's going to do something and I'll be right on his tail."

    Newton-John, who married Amazon herb millionaire John Easterling in June, sold her four-bedroom Malibu mansion for $A14.2 million last month.

    The Grease star has moved to the upmarket Florida community of Jupiter Island where Easterling owns a three-bedroom house, which is located in an exclusive gated estate and is currently listed for sale at $A1.28 million

    I guess they have proof.

    "In the most recent fax, McDermott's supposed rep wrote, 'Pat has asked that I portray to you his innocence. Pat has committed no crime. Pat simply wishes to be left alone. Let him live his life in peace and harmony. He is safe and has started anew again in a new place both physically and mentally.'"

    I'm glad that he thinks significant money owed for child support isn't a crime. I had read he won't come back to the states because he could get arrested over the child support deal and he knows Mexico and US won't extradite him. I don't care why he was running but I think it was horrible to do to the people who loved him- Olivia, but especially his child(ren). But he apparently doesn't give a crap about abandoning his kids if he doesn't care enough to pay child support for them. What a douchebag!

    If his insurance company paid out I'm sure they would be very interested in meeting with him. Isn't that fraud?

    I loved Olivia since she came out with her first hit song "I Honestly Love You" in 1974. Unlike your ID Forever-27, Olivia can't stay 27 years old forever. She's still attractive and looks good for her age (she turns 61 in September).

    I didn't think there was a thread on this guy by himself, but Olivia's ex-bf has told Allen Klein he is alive and to stop looking for him.

    http://www.popeater.com/2010/04/02/o...dermott-found/

    I can't imagine that will halt the search, though. Wonder how Olivia is taking it.

    The guy is a cad to put someone through that.

    Karen Carpenter, Tina Turner, Peaches from Peaches and Herb, Toni Tenille, Andy Gibb, Cliff Richard, Dan Akroyd, Chantal Contouri and Olivia all together onstage singing an Eagles song. Amazing.

    I hope she is okay. I would worry more about her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, with all the "work" she'll end up like Pete Burns !1026-chloe-inset-810x960.jpgdonotuse_Chloe-Lattanzi_150517.jpg

    At 70 she looks absolutely amazing. A delicate beauty. I wonder what she thinks of her daughter's forays into cosmetic surgery and she's only 33. Sad that in Hollywood that no one can look like themselves, or be happy with it. Olivia on the other hand has aged gracefully. A true sign that she is comfortable in her own skin . Bless her.

    I saw her do an interview the other day, and her face has fallen. Perhaps it'll get up again.

    Yeah, but she still looks like ONJ. Unlike Kim Novak, when I saw her at the 2014 Oscars I thought "Jesus Christ, what the fuck !" I don't think she has been seen in public since.
