Open Question: How many children did Ronald
Posted on 11 March 2016 | 10:02 am
Resolved Question: Ronny Reagan, Jane Wyman
Reagan launched a bevy of affairs with such glamorous icons as Lana Turner, Betty Grable and Susan Hayward, even a “too young Elizabeth Taylor.” He eventually married Jane Wyman, but he was not faithful to her, enjoying back alley affairs with the likes of “The Oomph Girl,” Ann Sheridan.
Jane, too, had her affairs on the side, notably with Lew Ayres (Ginger Rogers’ ex) while filming her Oscar-winning Johnny Belinda. After dumping Reagan, Jane launched a series of affairs herself, battling Joan Crawford (for Hollywood’s most studly and newsworthy attorney, Greg Bautzer), and Marilyn Monroe (for bandleader Fred Karger, divorcing him, marrying him again, and finally divorcing him for good.)
Reagan’s oldest son, Michael (adopted), later said, “If Nancy knew that one day she would be First Lady, she would have cleaned up her act.” He was referring to her notorious days as a starlet in the late 1940s and early 50s, when the grapevine had it that: “her phone number was passed around a lot.” The list of her intimate involvements is long, including Clark Gable, whom she wanted to marry; Spencer Tracy; Yul Brynner; Frank Sinatra; Marlon Brando; Milton Berle; Peter Lawford; Robert Walker; ad nauseum.
