Bryan i do not spread rumors, many times in the past I have alerted Doris of rumors and once she even sent me a thank you card, Someone close to her told me these things and I hope they are wrong because i certainly want Doris to be Happy at her age, maybe the person was slighted by Doris and her staff and is venting. Doris sounds wonderful via phone all this year. If this were true to just do nothing is correct? And that story of the couple taking care of Doris's estate was from a tabloid story. No more news from me because I always end up the bad guy!

Don't be silly - if you give it out, you have to learn to take it back. You know we try to not get too personal when talking about Doris. But it's not the end of the world! No one thinks you're a bad guy - just the guy who danced with Doris and has been dancing ever since!
I do think that Bryan has to put something in writing so as not to allow a conversation about Doris' personnel trying to take advantage of her. It's the right thing to do. And really, as fans, what can we do anyway but worry.
Given Doris' age and the fact that so little about her life comes from her camp, one wonders sometimes about he well being. I have to rely on her voice, her mood, memory and interactions with interviewers. That's all I have.
Mike you are so right about her smile, it widows The Love in her heart that we all Love about her. At 100 she will be always young at heart with that precious smile. I am also content now that Doris is fine and happy with her living situation, I just worried because I do care for her as you do, my secret Love for her began when I was thirteen, only a few years ago
Bryan, I think they were pre recorded. I have most of them. The "Doris Day Special" Where Perry Como was her guest and a brief appearance of Rock. I remember they let you see behind the scenes on some of the shots when you order the DVD. Was kind of funny in one where she is trying to do a scene with all her dogs around her and they have to keep doing it over, she is kissing on all of them and the next scene is with Perry and at the end of their song she says "Kiss Me" Perry looks kind of embarrassed. Now all you guys on here I bet there is not one of you that would hesitate if Doris ask you to kiss her. But Perry did.
Both were pre-recorded in front of just cast and crews, unfortunately. I still say that Doris would have commanded big bucks had she done Vegas as Frank Sinatra tried to convince her. I guess from Big Band Days to Later time, that stage fright entered the picture; not sure what brought it on. Maybe someone who knew her on a personal basis could comment on that. Perry did not kiss her because his wife was on the set!
Mike, the stage fright first started as a child when she had her first part in a play. She had to go to the bathroom but put it off because it was time for her to go on stage. She wet her pants and it was very obvious when she was on stage. She said everyone started laughing, she looked at her mother and said I am sorry but I had to go, and started to cry. She said after that she never wanted to do anything live.
Yes, we all know there are no boundaries for a dog's tongue! I had a dog of my own plus family dog - never remember kissing them - is that a woman thing? (hope that's not sexist!) You'd get the odd lick but it was mostly playing and running.
I remember taking my dog out once without realising she was on heat and some huge dog got the scent and it became a bit scary as he kept charging us to get at her- I had to beat him off with a large branch. I felt bad about hitting an animal but I had no other choice. There are so many dogs in London it gets a bit much - a lot of people seem to use certain breeds as weapons or to intimidate people - they snarl at you as the go by straining on their leash.
Bryan your a little horror!LOL Who needs the songs done live? Its mostly an ego thing having an ugly audience watching you. Doris makes it magic with her lip singing, also just starting to read Mike's book. I am really enjoying it and to think Doris signed her name on his hand. Thats different. Mike is a lucky man to have seen her singing live!!!
I was lucky enough to be on the set when Doris sang with John Denver and when she sang the beautiful "The Way We Were." She sang the "Follow Me" and the novelly tune about their similarities live on stage. No lip-synching! She also sang "The Way We Were" live. Let me tell ya folks, it was a great moment in time for me!
