Re: Celebrity Apprentice (with Dionne)

Sorry one more thing .. wouldn't you have to be tough and haughty as a black woman in the 50s and 60s to fight your way through that white male dominated racism crap that completely controlled the entertainment industry at that time?

Re: Celebrity Apprentice (with Dionne)

More Dionne bashing!! You don't sound like fans to me at all! Do we actually know that all the women in the Warwick household are/were a bunch of rattle snakes? Please tell me who has had the perfect career in the music industry as it seems like longevity in it is virtually on impossible? Dionne is ...

Re: Celebrity Apprentice (with Dionne)

Hi Nikray .. yes I agree .. they don't lose the qualities they had to get them to the top. They are tough and rise to the challenge which may not always suit us. The music industry has you on your toes all the time and they have learnt to keep in the public eye even if we think they use the wrong ki...

Re: Celebrity Apprentice (with Dionne)

Yes I agree .. but I just love her! I don't think she is too impressed by the celebrity mix. Not over overcome by it. Who would be with her heritage? I think she's just having fun and this exposure broadens her personality and keeps her in the loop. She's 70 now, with grand children, and survived in...

Re: Celebrity Apprentice (with Dionne)

I think Dionne Warwick just simply wants to have a bit of fun! She has toured for the past 50 years, often at quite a gruelling pace and maybe both the Psychic Friends Network and now Celebrity Apprentice provides her with a chance to do something different. She was very successful presenting the So...

Re: Dionne Arista Reissues Due this Month

I love both these albums .. especially her Brazilian one .. some say her voice is most at home with those fabulous soft samba rhythms.

Re: Happy 70th Birthday Dionne!

Along those lines, I have just received 'Dionne Warwick Sings Cole Porter' CD for Christmas. Just brilliant!! So look forward to her Sammy Cahn recordings this year .. She interprets all the classic composers like Burt Bacharach effortlessly. Her Cole Porter songs should get far more exposure intern...

Re: Happy 70th Birthday Dionne!

I absolutely agree with your feelings bachtobacharach about us being so fortunate to have the music of Burt Bacharach, Hal David and of course Dionne Warwick in our lives. For me from the age of 14! I was hooked. Happy birthday Dionne!
