Who is mel brooks dating
The management made a fuss and took lots of pictures. Hollywood had a great sense of humor; but we barely had a chance to say two words to each other. when we finally got up to leave; and then we found out that Mel had dismissed his car and driver, assuming we’d take him back to the Fontainebleau with us. And then Mel got semi-serious—and a new side of him emerged. When you’re on a date with Mel Brooks, the laughs and the patter and the jokes never stop. So the three of us headed back in my car–me driving, Mr. Even with jet lag, Mel was wired in the middle of the night, and continued entertaining us as I drove towards Miami Beach. He leaned way forward between the two bucket seats, and aimed a pointed question right at me. My station had arranged a private interview with Mel Brooks; my cameraman Larry was a big fan and brought along a box of Raisinets which he knew Mel loved.After the interview, the guy with Mel handed me his card and asked me to send a videocassette copy of the interview to him in Los Angeles. You should dump this boyfriend, marry my manager, and move to California.” I was so flustered I missed the turnoff and had to get off the highway—the guys had no idea where we were, but I did— in the most dangerous neighborhood in Miami.I was used to guys like this: I figured he was Mel’s publicist; and either wanted to represent me, or he was hitting on me. And somehow I found myself agreeing to meet him back at the Fontainebleau for a drink, after I finished the late news. The call caught me off guard; and now I couldn’t stand him up. I could just picture the newspaper headlines: Little did I know that there would be headlines– of a very different kind– in Liz Smith’s syndicated column when I took Mel’s advice —four months later, I married his manager Howard Rothberg, and moved to California.“I don’t know why I said ok; I couldn’t think of a fast excuse,” I told my producer when I got back to the station from the interview. So after the news, I headed back to the Fontainebleau. Howard and I got divorced 13 years later; and the story of how I met my second husband (18 years so far) isn’t nearly as romantic.He reportedly started dating her first wife, Florence Baum when both were 20-year old, after his girlfriend went off to Europe for the summer who was incidentally, Florence’s friend and she was the one who helped Mel through his difficult times and then eventually married in 1951.
