Lady Blue Eyes: My Life With Frank Interview: Here are two interviews with Barbara Sinatra about her recently released book, Lady Blue Eyes: My Life With Frank.
Barbara Sinatra: He says, hey blondie! Come on and join us! I didn’t really recognize him. I recognized Dean and Sammy and some of the others. I said, I don’t care! I am not dealing with a bunch of drunks.
Chris: That was your future husband!
Barbara Sinatra: But I didn’t know that.
We’ve been playing gin rummy with a group of people. He said Barbara come in here I wanna show you something, we were kissing.
Chris: What did that feel like?
Barbara Sinatra: Wonderful. Wonderful. He was a great kisser. He made me feel special. He treated me like a queen.
He was a guy who took about 12 showers a day. I mean he was neat. And he always smelled of lavender. He just thought of every single little thing to make it romantic.
Chris: What song would he sing to you, Barbara?
He had one the George Harrison wrote, called Something. He said it was a great love song and it never said I love you. He didn’t like anything that was right on the nose.
Chris: You said once that he thought that My Way was a little too on the nose.
He did. That wasn’t one of his favorite songs.
Chris: Did Frank Sinatra ever apologize?
Barbara Sinatra: Never. Absolutely never.
I kept saying, you have beaten tougher things than this. I think you can beat this, too. Then all of a sudden he just looked at me and he said, “I can’t”. That was it.
Chris: Why did you and Frank stay in love for so long?
Barbara Sinatra: You know, I don’t know why he stayed in love with me. But I think it is obvious why I was in love with him. The blue eyes, the romanticism, the kindness, the generosity. Everything.
Quite interesting pictures can be seen on the videos.
