Zeppo's Ex Writes a Book

Barbara Sinatra, fourth and final wife of Frank Sinatra, has written a book about her years with the singer.

In an interview appearing in the Sunday, June 6, 2011 New York Times Magazine, she answers a number of questions about Frank's violent streak, his drinking, and his infidelity--none of which seemed to bother her very much as long as he gave her birthday presents like a Rolls Royce Corniche. The subject of her marriage to Zeppo Marx, to whom she was married when she met Sinatra, gets only a brief mention by the interviewer. I don't imagine Zep was that easy to live with, but I think he came out ahead in the deal.

Barbara Marx today, with the same smooth skin she had several decades ago on the book cover.


  1. I bought this book just so I could read about Zeppo! I don't even care for Frank Sinatra, but my sister once I do actually read it (I've had it for months, and haven't touched it) I plan on giving it to her.

  2. Gaaaah! That last picture is so freaky! I think Barbara Marx just replaced Tim Curry's clown in my future nightmares.
