Queen of Pinups - Bettie Page
No frills, Just pictures!
Bettie in my own words
Who is Bettie Page? A question I hear every time I mention her name in casual conversation, or someone spots a piece of Bettie memorabilia of mine. Ask many of her fans, and each will probably have their own version to tell.
My story is that I was recently divorced and I was really in a dark place in my life. I was angry it seemed at every woman on the planet and very depressed. I had never heard of Bettie Page before, until then by chance, I bought the December 1995 issue of Playboy Magazine and read an article titled “The Real Bettie Page”. Suddenly I was enamored with her. I sought out all the information and pictures of her I could find. In a small way, I almost became obsessed with her. More than anything she became a bright burning candle in my pitch black dark days. As silly as it may sound, she gave me something to live for and want to wake up for the next day. Finding another picture of her soon became the highlight of my day. With Bettie being the only woman in my life, I soon realized what I was really missing.
I married again to a beautiful woman that loves me as much as I love her. We started a family together, bringing with it some of the very best days of my life. Do I love Bettie more than my wife and children, of course not. However, I am still enamored with Bettie and I am sure that will never go away.
Bettie Mae Page died on December 11, 2008. “I want to be remembered as I was when I was young and in my golden times,” she told The Los Angeles Times in 2006. “I want to be remembered as a woman who changed people’s perspectives concerning nudity in its natural form.” I honor her wishes always remembering her just as the photos and videos on this website capture and immortalize her. My hope is that this website helps others to honor her wishes as well. We love you and we will miss you. Thank You Bettie!
