BARBARA SINATRA, the widow of legendary crooner FRANK SINTRA, describes her late husband as being a "Jeykll and Hyde' personality in her new memoir 'Lady Blue Eyes: My Life with Frank', reports USA Today. BARBARA SINATRA speaks in-depth about her tumultuous relationship with the RAT PACK star, but says she was the "luckiest woman in the world" to be his wife.
A former model and Vegas showgirl, Barbara was previously married to the American film star Zeppo Marx before meeting Sinatra, who quickly won her over. Barbara describes Frank as having a good eye "for stone", meaning he could pick out expensive jewellery, and the couple regularly made flights to Paris for dinner. However, Barbara recalls how Sinatra was "definitely a Jekyll and Hyde" personality, recounting numerous occasions when he was drinking heavily and making a scene in New York, and Hong Kong. Elsewhere in the memoir, Barbara reveals that a prenuptial agreement was delivered to her on the morning of her wedding and how the legendary singer loved grilled cheese sandwiches, unfiltered Camel cigarettes and Jack Daniels whisky.
Frank Sinatra died at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in 1998, with BARBARA SINATRA by his side. The singer had previously been married to NANCY BARBATO, and the actresses Ava Gardner and MIA FARROW.
