  1. This does not sound like Deke to me at all....

    This does not sound like Deke to me at all. Sounds to me like the work of someone who didn’t push her as hard, but I have no idea who. I like it enough, though I prefer the Danny Thomas version.
  2. I think all this publicity will be a big help to...

    I think all this publicity will be a big help to Mary as far as her solo bookings girl. She was quite interested in getting the gig at Cleopatra‘s barge and so far they have not made a right offer...

    you are spot on about Cindy, except a reunion has to be three Supremes - it can’t just be Mary and Ross, so a third will have to be added and then it will not be a true reunion which is what mary...

    WHAT THE HELL IS MARY TALKING ABOUT??? There cannot be a reunion and she knows it.

    Who is the public? Most of the public doesn’t know who they were anymore.

    This does nothing to anyone’s...

    Her gig at Senaca is 99% sold out and I’m sure she’ll play it.

    Its all cool. I do need to re-read what I post to be sure it’s clear to those not privy to the rusty mechanism that passes for my mind these days.

    I thought Mary was stunning. I wasn’t and I’m not expecting her to be a great dancer because what they are doing on this show is completely different from what she did with the Supremes and the...

    Mary looks amazing and is always such a great interview - I’m sure there will be a lot more DWTS clips like this - thanks for posting.

    I remember that Soul article. That pic of Mary still jags me, she looks so forlorn. If you have the Detroit Free Press article, please post it.

    ‘’All Of The Motown deaths are sad, but Marvin, Flo...

    I have stated many times that Mary had talent and could have, with the proper direction, have had a much more lucrative singing career. What I find ridiculous is blaming Motown for her failure to...

    I'm not bothered by opposing viewpoints in music nor was I calling those with opposing viewpoints losers. I was referring to the artists who resort to that time and time again. I think if you...

    I never saw that cool ad, but I lived in Bloomington and Chicago that summer and record stores in both cities had posters of the album on display in the record stores and every club, I assume, I was...

    When a performer signs a contract with a venue or a promoter, they are guaranteeing that person that they will be there in good faith. That would preclude them from Entering into another engagement...
  15. That’s not an attack at all, I am simply...

    That’s not an attack at all, I am simply comparing her inability to cope with high school and her inability to be in the Supremes And how she dealt with both situations. I’m not judging her at all...

    i agree that Mary knew her place in the group, Flo was unusually wonderful for a bg singer, but, as anyone can attest who saw them live, Mary was clearly an asset as well and she knew it. All the...

    Exactly! People like to assign blame for what happened to Florence and definitely there were outside influences that contributed to her problem but the bottom line is it was the life of a Supreme...

    I don’t know the demographic for the show, the only person I know who watches it is 92 but that doesn’t mean that it only attracts an old lady audience……mary looks fabulous and will be a great...

    And so many folks in the business wind up on substances to help them cope with performing, partying, flying, being critiqued, the career ups and downs, competition....... add the rape, dealing with...

    The lifestyle is not for everyone. Imagine being a teenager on The road at Christmas time for birthdays or other important events…… It’s a lot to give up and it’s no embarrassment For people to quit...

    The convo has morphed to Flo. The point, again, is that no one helped until AFTER she was out of the group. No one stood up to BG or tried to intervene on her behalf. No one.

    As for the top top...

    i think you’re missing the point. So what if The Temptations sent Mary a telegram? To show support for Florence they should’ve sent that telegram to Berry Gordy. And Mary didn’t take their advice...

    its true that everyone acted in their own best interest or dis-interest. I don’t think anyone is to “blame” per se’ and am tired of the finger pointing. Gordy had his interests to protect as did...
