Important Amazon Review of Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour

Some days you just want to cry because you are so relieved to be supported and believed by someone close to the story. Reading Ginger's review at Amazon.com makes today one of those days for me.

Ginger Suger Blymyer also wrote a book titled "Hairdresser to the Stars" that included poignant information about her friend, Natalie Wood. Ginger had been Natalie Wood's personal hairstylist for over 17 years, and they had confided in one another on many occasions. They had traveled together, ate together, and were on long-hour studio set days together. Ginger adored Natalie, and Natalie adored her. I'm glad they shared a working relationship and a friendship. Ginger's book, and her review of Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour is so appreciated. 


  1. Marti,
    This is so ironic because I was sitting here at my computer debating whether I should write to Ginger or not to ask her what she thought about Natalie's death.
    I got to know Ginger a little this past summer when I emailed her and asked her her thoughts about Natalie. This is what she had to say:
    "Hi Kevin, Yes Natalie was nice and great. Unlike many she never took out her problems on her coworkers. She was actually very supportive of all of us. She took us places we would never have gone. Ginger"
    I was uncertain how to broach the subject with her, but I can see I had nothing to worry about. Ginger knew Natalie very well and I love what she wrote about giving Natalie her dignity back. Thank you Ginger.

  2. I agree, Kevin. It's all about giving Natalie back her dignity. Thank you for caring about that, too. Marti

  3. Kevin, thank you for sharing what Ginger told you. As I said in another thread, I am so glad that someone else who was close to Natalie sees this story for what it is. That is HUGE. It's very meaningful and touching to get Ginger's thoughts on all of this.
