Well, the Clintons thought the tape had been destroyed. A bombshell sex tape that former White House intern Monica Lewinsky made for ex-president Bill Clinton was obtained by The Enquirer -- insiders say it could torpedo Hillary Clinton's expected run for the White House! The steamy tape, along with other explosive documents and mementoes related to Clinton's scan- dalous affair with Monica, was meant to be destroyed. "I was supposed to shred every- thing in late 1998, but for some reason I kept this material," the "cleaner" told The Enquirer. The audiotape recorded by Monica drips with sexual innuendo and reveals how she ranged from playing hot-blooded vixen to smitten schoolgirl and jealous lover with Clinton. Releasing it now could explode in the face of former first lady Hillary as she weighs a run for the presidency in 2016, according to one political insider. "The Clintons thought this sex tape was dead and buried," said the source. Monica was just 21 when she arrived at the White House in July 1995 as an unpaid intern for Clinton's chief of staff. She's claimed her sexual relationship with the president began in November 1995. Enough said! Doubt it will affect Hillary Clinton's ex- pected run for the White House. Go for it Hillary! More inside stuffi As published, in a des- perate attempt to make fans forget his nu- merous gay scandals, John Travolta agreed to co-star in Kirstie Alleys' new sitcom, an insider says. The 59-year-old married father of two -- who rocketed to fame on the clas- sic sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter" -- hopes that when he returns to his comedy roots, fans will be distracted from the lawsuits and sordid stories that have plagued him. Travolta was also rocked by lawsuits from male masseurs who charged the actor with inappropriate behavior, and The Enquirer in- terviewed John's former personal assistant Joan Edwards, who said she worked for him from 1978 to 1994 and said: "Of course I knew he was gay." Actress Valerie Harper is still going strong -- despite deadly cancer. More than six months ago, doctors told cancer-stricken Valerie Harper that she could be dead in three months. But the 73-year-old "Rhoda" star looked the picture of health at California's Del Mar racetrack, where she attended a Lung Cancer Foundation of America fundraiser. She vowed to beat it. But this past January, doctors told her the cancer had spread to the lining of her brain. TV Legend Lucille Ball had the classic sitcom I Love Lucy named for her, but she spent years heartbroken and battling dev- astating depression because she thought everyone hated her! The flame-haired com- edy queen was convinced no one loved her, a feeling enhanced by the blistering com- ments about her by many of her Hollywood colleagues. And it didn't help her self-esteem when her marriage to skirt-chaser Desi Arnaz collapsed, say sources. When Lucy died on April 26, 1989, at age 77, it was said it was because "she simply did not want to live anymore." The amazing Lucille Ball is resting at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles. Lucille's true name is Dianne Belmont. Desi Arnaz true name is Desidierio Alberto Arnaz y de Acma. Speaking of true names, the true name of Peggy Lee is Norma Egstrom. Shirley MacLaine's true name is Shirley MacLean Beaty. Madonna's true name is Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone. Ramon Novarro's true name is Jose Ramon Samaniegos. Martha Raye's true name is Margaret Yvonne Reed. Susan Sarandon's true name is Susan Tomaling. For the record, Susan has Italian blood in her gorgeous body. One more time! Frankie Valli's true name is Frank Castelluccio. A reminder! Barron's true name is Joseph Barisano. Pay attention! Healthy people who are con- cerned about subtle lapses in their memory -- like forgetting the plot of TV shows or get- ting lost in familiar places -- may be pick- ing up on early signs of dementia that their family members, friends and doctors can't yet detect. "Every time you forget someone's name," says Reisa Sperling, director of the Alzheimer's center at Brigham, "you don't need to go running to the doctor." Symptoms that do appear worrisome include getting easily confused or becoming disoriented in familiar places. And so, the average U.S. work week has shrunk by nearly 12 percent since 1964, from more than 38 hours a week to fewer than 34 in 2013. The decline is largely due to the growth in part-time employment, spurred by the surge of women into the workforce and the proliferation of restau- rants and retail establishments. It's predicted that in twenty years people will work two days a week and relax five. Some employers think that's happening now. Carlo Scostumato, says, "It isn't the number of people employed in a business that makes it successful. It's the number working." Holy news! Pope Francis has given gay Catholics hope "that the church still has a place for them in its heart," said Mark Brown in the Chicago Sun-Times.

For instance, this meal can beprepared using Italian pork sausages, or shoul- der pork chops in place of veal shoulder. The meat used in preparing this will determine the flavor of the stew. priesthood."

A Florida day-care teacher was fired for leaving her classroom to put out a fire. Michelle Hammack traced a burning smell to an oven fire in the kitchen, led her stu- dents outside and extinguished the fire Owner Olga Rozhaov then fired her. "I fired her because she left the room," Rozhaov explained. What you should know about Sal Mineo. A one-time street fighter himself, Sal Mineo was a natural for his early roles (Dino, Crime in the Streets, etc.) culminating with his Oscar-nomination performance as the un- derdog in Rebel Without Cause, 1955. Born January 10, 1939, in the Bronx, New York, the son of a Sicilian casket maker, Mineo was expelled from school at the age of nine. While attending dancing school, he received daily beatings from street associates who were not sympathetic with his theatrical ambitions. Wee bit of Italian contributions to the world of music from our noted musicologist Albert Natale. Italians gave birth to jazz! It began in the 1880's in New Orleans by Sicilian immigrants, who came to New Orleans with their musical instruments. With them they brought the Sicilian tradition of white-clad musicians who accompanied funerals. They also performed at tributes to saints. Nick LaRocca and his Original Dixieland Band was the first jazz band to cut a record, sell over one million records and tour America and Europe. New Orleans was also the home of many talented Italian American musi- cians such as Wingy Manone, Leon Roppolo and of course, Louis Prima. It was Louis Prima who wrote "Sing, Sing, Sing," which was first performed by Benny Goodman at Carnegie Hall and featured a young drum- mer Gene Krupa. One more time! East Bos- ton produced many, many, great Italian American musicians from 1920 to 1960. One of the most famous of all was Geraldo Graziano ... Jerry Gray. Reminder! The first piano was created in 1700 by Bartolomeo Cristofori who called it piano e forte. The music scale, do, re, me, fa, so, la, ti, do, was created by an Ita_!ia_n_.
