2012 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 4: Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to Day Four.
We live in a world where female celebrities are known more by one name then by two; divas like Mariah, Angelina, Christina, and others rule the headlines. But in the history of fame, the single female celebrity who singularly deserves the singular name … Marilyn.
