Yes, she was big news back in the early sixties. Also Mandy Rice Davies. I did not know she had died. Perhaps it's not news worthy in Australia. I remember that she wrote a book about her life & came to Australia to promote it. The interviewers were very tough with her & she looked uncomfortable, insisting she was just a young girl looking for a fun time.

I've heard of her. I believe her photo on a chair was considered rather risque, back in the day. Oh how times have changed.

Life not so hard at the top in those days. Profumo dead aged 91, but his partners in rumpy died aged, Mandy 70 and now Christine 75, no age at all today for women.

I have to say that scandals like this did take your mind off the fact that nuclear armageddon was just 4 minutes away.

Sorry to see her go.

I remember the movie Scandal about the Profumo affair... thought it was a good take on it all, although it all happened before my time, but remember my mom saying it was pretty accurate portrayal.

daveincolchester is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Christine Keeler ........

I was a teenager when this happened.
A few years ago a newspaper article showed a picture of her and described her lifestyle.
She was living on welfare and hadn't, worn well.
Around the same time, there was an article in the news about her former friend, Mandy Rice Davies.
She had done well for herself, with a successful marriage and successful bar in Spain.
Funny world.
