Hollywood gossip:

For most of her adult life Liz Taylor who attracted to homosexual/bi-sexual men who reaguarlly beat the %$#@# out of her. In the filming of "Cleopatra" they had to hault production for three days because Richard Burton beat her so badly that even the best make-up folks could hide it. So, production was haulted for three days to allow it to get to the point where carefullly applied make-up and camera angles could mask it.

And no, it wasn't the first time with Burton and, as said before, he wasn't the only one -- not by a long shot. Eddie Fisher and a whole slew of others used her for a punching bag.

The result is a strikingly beautiful young woman of mixed ethnicity...

She looks like a cartoon character.

Sorry.

I’ll bet she made the best grilled cheese in the entire Nile Delta, because THAT’s how you really earn the adoration of men.

Ode to Cleopatra

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You’ve got a nose

The look they put on her face insinuates that Mark Anthony was a real stud...

This is a crock- Cleo was NOT- I repeat- NOT of mixed heritage. She was NOT black.
Cleo was a Ptolemy- a MEDITERANNEAN and the daughter (or granddaughter) of one of Alexander’s generals.

I cannot express my contempt enough for those who wish to remake historical figures in the form of some blighted “minority group”. Enough.

Maybe that’s when she sent back to Chasen’s restaurant in Hollywood for a shipment of their famous chili?(!)

A few years back, based on a image from ancient coins and writing from that era, it was determined Cleopatra was probably not that attractive. The conclusion was she obviously had other skill sets that made her appealling to men ... ;)

This is BS! That's no real depictions of the actual Cleopatra, its modern political correctness gone a muck!! Trying to make every ancient person into 'blacks or mixed' even historical people like Cleopatra who CLEARLY were not black nor mixed black, based upon nothing but their own heresay and "ethnic diversity" of modern ignorance. Do you guys want to see the actual ancient depiction of young Cleopatra that these clowns used to come up with this FAKE modern revisionism "black African Cleopatra"? It was this one:

And hair is styled in a very distinct youthful Greek style known as "melon", not black dreads....this hair fashion for young Greek girls & ladies was named "melon" because the hair was divided into a number of segments running like the ribs of a melon from the forehead to the back of the head:


Now tell me where on Gods Green Earth do they see ANY resemblance with the ancient depiction of young Cleopatra in the first picture I posted above as well as the ancient depiction of the older Cleopatra I post below in where she clearly has white European feature from her thin lips, melon fashion hair which was typical of young Greek girls back then, pointy chin, fat neck, hooked nose and droopy eyes which was an indication of her families constent inbreeding so they can preserve their European Ptolemaic bloodline, to make her look like a black African girl with black features and dreads is beyong logic itself.

They didn't even give her the famous 'Ptolemaic hooked nose' for Gods sake. Cleopatra came from a family, the Ptolemaic Dynasty, who were of Greek origins and INBRED with one another, this inbreeding not only suggests they preserved their Hellenic ethnicity and culture but their bloodline would have been preserved as well and since they came from a region in Greece where fair coloring is very common then Cleopatra as ancient depictions clearly show, was fair colored, not some 'mixed African black' girl. Take a look at her ancient busts and coins: they show a European light skinned woman and this bust from her time period still has traces of reddish gold that was her hair color, not some black African with dreads in her hair.
