I shall not embarrass myself

I shall not embarrass myself any further...

no, I ain't got no Charo CDs or anything like that.

real or fake? hmmm, good question, that requires further research. lucky I can scroll down / use the mouse with one hand. Playboy appearances, well, she was never in Penthouse, this much I KNOW. I will do some more 'ahem' research and let you know, but I do not think so. She was, however, married at age 15 to a 66 year old Spanish bandleader back in Spain, she later claimed it was only so she could get to the U.S. of A. There are disputes over her real age, adding more to the mystique and fascination of all that is 'Charo'

crazy/dumb like a fox -- perhaps, she still made money. That's show Business, with a capital 'B'.

yes, I am a pretty cynical fuck when you get in deep.

love and peace.

Schtick???

(in your best Peter Griffin - Family Guy voice) Schtick is what I got as youngster when I was up late enough to catch Charo on The Tonight Show. Schtick is what Donny Osmond got when he had a kissing scene with Loni Anderson (I heard something about schtick and his sister but that's gross). Schtick is Angelina Jolie in that movie...you know the one about....well, OK, it's just her but you get my point. I mean, you don't get my point but the schtick gets the point. Never mind...

Golden Road must be fucking around with his time resonator again. Damn you, Golden Road!!! (He hasn't been "right" since the Phil show, the other night).

Thanks CCJoe!

I never knew she was of any real substance (Yuk, yuk - picture me tapping invisible cigar). So you actually have, in your possession, a Charo CD or album? I could go to (if one still existed) a record store and purchase a Charo music conveyance of some type? Did she ever do Playboy? Were "they" real (your opinion will be accepted)?

annoying, sure... the thing

annoying, sure...

the thing I respect about Charo, she never went into that ever dreaded Hollywood category of

'forgotten but not gone'

one way or another, her schtick kept her fans paying cash to see her in Vegas or elsewhere.

Charo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charo

she got her break in LaLa land on Laugh In, the rest is history...

basically, a woman with real musical talent who developed an on camera / on stage shctick that made her millions and millions of dollars.

McGavin!!

McGavin!

I could have sworn he did... but since Charo also did a few guest spots on The Love Boat, I've had that show on my brain.

little know LaLa-Land Love Boat FACT: when Donny Osmond did his guest shot, he had a kissing scene with Loni Anderson; Donny KEPT flubbing his lines ON PURPOSE so he could keep kissing her. It IS true!

BTW

Who was or is Charo? I remember her from The Tonight Show, as Johnny's guest numerous times and I think The Bong Show but I honestly never knew what she did to be famous, except for her physical attributes, which were negated by her annoying personality, imo.
