What’s the connection with MD and KZJ?
She was dumped for KZJ. Starting her rampant alcoholism. (See Mo, I can play too.)
Dowd dated Michael Douglass and lost out to that lovely young lady.
IIRC, Catherine Zeta-Jones snaked away MoDo’s main squeeze.
The latter has been bitter & b!tchy ever since.
The former just goes on being beautiful.
Explanation of the Dowd/Douglas connection: by Miss Marple- 2/11/03
Ms. Dowd was escorted around New York and DC for many months by one Michael Douglas of Hollywood fame and fortune. She got to go to all the best parties, was photographed for the tabloids, and was picking out a gown to wear at the Oscars. Of course, Michael had become interested in her during Clinton’s impeachment, when she had written some very anti-Clinton columns. After a few weeks of the Michael treatment, she began to write anti-Starr, ant-Newt columns, ignoring Clinton.
Then Clinton was acquitted by the Senate. In an amazing coincidence, Michael Douglas dropped Ms. Dowd like a hot potato, and instead picked up a hot tomato, Catherin Zeta-Jones, who subsequently bore him a son and they were married.
Ms. Dowd cannot get over her tragic loss. Her columns are increasingly anti-Bush, in the hope of impressing her lost love, Michael.
In addition, we think she has a secret crush on the President [Bush] and is trying to get him to pay attention to her. Ha!
You have to ask other freepers who can tell you
FR rules require a pic of CZJ when ever MD is featured in a thread.
