I'm in love with the men of Old Hollywood. I like to imagine I was the wife of Henry Fonda in another life. I also love Gary Cooper, Joel McCrea, Tyrone Power, John Wayne, Robert Taylor, and Clark Gable.
A Little about me: I'm a registered nurse born and raised in Arkansas. I am of Irish and English descent and embrace my family's heritage. I love my home state of Arkansas as well as the South in general. I will post a lot about the South, about Ireland, mountains, and the beach, my favorite places on earth.
I make gifs and headers, so feel free to inbox me anytime with request. Cheers!
In 1967, CBS was eager ta have Burnett up in a series so they had offered her a ultimatum. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. Biatch could either star up in a situation comedy or her ass could headline a variety series. Burnett chose tha latta option. I aint talkin’ bout chicken n’ gravy biatch fo’ realz. As a result, tha hour-long Carol Burnett Show, which debuted up in September, 1967, garnered 23 Emmy Awards n’ won and was nominizzled fo’ multiple Emmy Awardz n’Golden Globe Awards every last muthafuckin season it was on tha air. Itz ensemble cast included Tim Conway (who was a hommie playa until tha ninth season), Harvey Korman, Lyle Waggoner, n’ tha teenaged Vicki Lawrence (who was cast kinda cuz her ass looked like a lil’er Burnett). Da network initially did not want her ta do a variety sheezy cuz they believed only pimps could be successful at variety yo, but Burnettz contract required dat they give her one season of whatever kind of sheezy her ass wanted ta make.
