We finally had our first reading for Roberta. I love readings they help me learn the lines and get into character! The play isn't anything like our script. For example, my character was a villian in the play and had very little screen time. Now I have more screen time and I am not a villian! Fred and Hermes already have ideas for our dances. Fred and I have a plan of stealing the movie with our dances so we are going to try really hard on this one! I love Fred to death, he is such a cutie! Anyway Irene (Dunne) has the lead. She is such a doll. Anyway I'll tell you more about my character. Her name is Comtesse Scharwenka. She is pretending to be a Countess when she really isn't one. She is also pretending to be Polish. It turns out she is American and she grew up with Fred's character. That's all for now. Lela and I are going out to eat tonight!

I just finished my last movie. It was alright but The Gay Divorcee was such a huge hit so RKO has decided that Fred and I will star in another movie! This time it will be from the broadway show Roberta. Irene Dunne has the lead so me and Fred are stuck as second banana roles again! Irene is nice though. She is the reigning queen of RKO. Well that's all for now! I must get my sleep I have to do some errands tomorrow!

We finally finished filming The Gay Divorcee I hope it does well at the box office. We will have to see though. The last scenes we did were our big dance and production number. The song is called "The Continental." It was actually a lot fun filming it. I learned the steps really easily. There is this cute number in the movie called "Let's K-nock K-nees" and this girl named Betty Grable sang it. I think the girl might have something. Well I start filming another movie called Romance in Manhattan. Sounds like any other movie I've done.

We finally started filming "The Gay Divorcee" and no offensive but I hate our director Mark Sandrich. He is always telling me to do this, not this! He thinks I can't act! I know I'm no oscar material but he didn't have to insult me like that! It seems that I can't do anything right! He feels that I shouldn't even be in this film! Fred and his pal Hermes Pan came up this really great dance for our new song "The Continental." Right now I am learning the steps and I am catching on quick.

We filmed this scene today. In this scene Fred sings "Night and Day" to me, and then we dance. Sadly this is the only Cole Porter song from the orignial stage version. I love this dress by the way.

Well Lela is cooking me dinner tonight so I must do my duty and eat. Good night!

I always get excited when a new year comes! I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years! My mother Lela and I had our family come over for Christmas! It was wonderful seeing everyone again! I saw all my aunts and cousins and my Grandpa! We had a big dinner and exchanged presents! It was quite fun!

Well it turns out for our next movie The Gay Divorcee, they got rid of the whole Cole Porter score! What a shame! The only Cole Porter song that is staying in the movie is "Night and Day." They decided to have someone rewrite new songs!

It turns out the movie Fred and I are making is The Gay Divorcee! Actually it's really called The Gay Divorce and office code said the title had to be change because there is no such thing as a "Gay Divocre." Fred actually had the starring role in London. So he is very familair with the plot and music. Just think our very own musical with a Cole Porter score! Anyway here is the plot:

Mimi Glossop (my role) wants a divorce so her Aunt Hortense (Alice Brady) hires a professional to play the correspondent in apparent infidelity. American dancer Guy Holden (Fred) meets Mimi while visiting Brightbourne and she thinks he is the correspondent.

So it may not be the greatest plot but I think I am going to enjoy filming this one!

Well it turns out Flying Down to Rio was such a big hit that RKO is giving me and Fred our own movie! We are the stars! It's "our movie!" No more second banana roles! Anyway filming isn't due for a while and I am taking some time off. Actually they are working on the script right now as we speak! I think I am going to throw a Christmas party for my friends. I still don't know what to get Lela for Christmas. Maybe I'll get her some expansive perfume. She might like that! I just finished filming Upperworld and Twenty Million Sweethearts. I sure wish I had diffrent roles then these showgirl golddigger roles! Oh well! I should be gald I have the work and I do enjoy it most of the time! I went on another date with Lew Ayres. He is a very charming man! Well let's just say that he is my prince charming. The guy a girl dreams about. Love does silly things to you. I felt this same way when I married Jack. I can still remember my Lela giving her motherly advice to not marry him. Well I did and it turns out he was a drunk! I do think Lela likes Lew though. I hate it when we go out on dates we always have to hide. I guess it's the price of stardom. Well I going to stop writing. That was a quite a bit of info I wrote! Good-bye!

It's been a while since I have written in here and Flying Down to Rio has finished. It was just released and it's a huge success! I had a lot of fun filming with Fred! The director let us do our dance number. It's called The Carioca! I think the real reason the film is a huge success is in the big production number we had girls dancing and doing stunts on airplanes! Anyway here is a photo of me and Fred doing The Carioca!
