Meanest Story nominee:
Glenn Ford was a drunken wife beater.

Publication: Globe
Date: 18 April 2011

Welcome to 2011 gossip hell, the ghost of Glenn Ford! The Globe does a little corpse kicking and some serious Hey Old Timer Gossip, since Glenn was first famous not when I was in high school but when my parents were in still in grade school.

The story is that Glenn's son has published that favorite object of tabloid existence, the tell all book, and he's dragging his dad's name through the mud, saying he was a drunken wife beater.

(Note: the woman in not Glenn Ford's wife, but an actress. I think it's Erin Gray.)

This is nominee for Meanest Story of the Week.
