Porfirio Rubirosa and Johnny Stompanato


Zsa Zsa and Rubi

Porfirio Rubirosa Ariza, (January 22, 1909 in San Francisco de MacorĂ­s, Dominican Republic - July 5, 1965 in Bois de Boulogne, France) was a Dominican diplomat, polo player and race car driver who competed in the 1950 and 1954 24 Hour of Le Mans, but was best known as an international playboy for his jet setting lifestyle and legendary prowess with women.

His suave manner and rugged good looks came with a prodigious male appendage and sexual prowess, both subjects of much gossip.[citation needed] Truman Capote described his male organ as "an 11-inch cafe au lait sinker as thick as a man's wrist".[citation needed] At the time, large pepper grinders were sometimes referred to as "rubirosas" in the fast international set.1 He was linked romantically to Dolores Del Rio, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Soraya Esfandiary, Veronica Lake, Kim Novak, and Eva Peron. He dallied with his ex-wife Flor during his marriage to Doris Duke, and with Zsa Zsa Gabor during his marriage to Barbara Hutton. He was named a co-respondent in at least two divorces, the husbands charging adultery. (from Wikipedia)



Lana Turner, Stompanato, and Cheryl Crane

Johnny Stompanato, Jr. aka Handsome Harry, John Steele and Oscar (October 9, 1925 – April 4, 1958) was a former United States Marine, the mobster boyfriend of actress Lana Turner, and a bodyguard for gangster Mickey Cohen.

On April 4, 1958, Johnny Stompanato was stabbed to death at Turner's Beverly Hills, California home. The assailant was Turner's then teenage daughter, Cheryl. The girl claimed that Stompanato was attacking her mother and she had to defend her. The courts agreed, ruling Stompanato's death to be justifiable homicide. After the ruling, Stompanato's family sued Turner for $7 million; gangster Mickey Cohen supposedly paid the family's legal costs. The case was finally settled out of court.

There have been endless rumors since 1958 that Turner was the actual killer. Her daughter supposedly took the blame because she was a minor and would face minimal judicial punishment under the circumstances. However, there is insufficient evidence to prove such claims. (from Wikipedia)

The rumor in Hollywood was that Johnny was as big as an Oscar! That's why when Lana lost the Best Actress award someone said it was O.K. because she had a live one at home. Oscars are 12" tall.
