Sinatra's Widow Speaks, Says Frank Took 12 Showers A Day!

frank sinatra loved to shower

Who doesn't love a good shower or two twelve…every day! LOLz.

Frank Sinatra's widow Barbara Sinatra has opened up about the legendary singer in a her new memoir Lady Blue Eyes: My Life With Frank, and she's got some very inneresting things to say about the man.

Here's Barbara on Frank's obsessive cleaning habits:

"He was a guy who took about 12 showers a day. I mean, he was neat. He always smelled of lavender."

Barbara on how Frank was able to win her heart over after she first met him:

"I didn't recognize him. I recognized some of the others. I said, 'I don't care. I'm not dealing with a bunch of drunks.' Once he turned on the charm, my defenses rolled away like tumbleweed."

Barbara on Frank's intoxicing scent and "sexual energy":

"Inhaling his heady scent of lavender water, Camel cigarettes, and Jack Daniel's, I could do nothing but savour the moment of intoxication, oblivious to the consequences. He had a sexual energy all his own. Even Elvis Presley, whom I'd met in Vegas, never had it quite like that."

And Barbara on Frank's mood swings:

'I don't know that I handled his moods. I lived with them. He could be moody. I didn't want to be around him if he drank gin. Gin, I think, made him mean. [If I saw] a gin bottle on the bar I'd turn right around and go back in the room and lock the door because I didn't want to deal with that."

Barbara goes on to say that Frank never apologized for anything, and that she "looked the other way" with regards to his womanizing, but despite all that, she had the following to say about being married to Frank:

"[I was the] luckiest woman in the world."

How sweet!

The womanizing and gin drinking don't come as major surprises, but the obsessive cleanliness is def news to us! There may have been some infidelities, but at least his wife never had to deal with any B.O. Ha!

What do U think about these new insights about Frank Sinatra? Surprised by any of this?

    wow normally tell all books trash people or share way too personal info..You know this man is a legend if no one said anything about him. Most of these youngins don't even know who this guy is. Which is sad really.

    Perez, you are so full of shit. She did not say that Frank took 12 showers a day. She said he was a guy who took "about" 12 showers a day. She was speaking figuratively, you dumbass! He probably took 2 or 3 showers a day, and she said 12 as a joke, because he always smelled so good. You could probably learn a thing or two from him.

    But did she like to lick his taint?

    Too much information, Barb.

    'Interesting', 'inTeresting', there's two 't's no two 'n's. Again, Interesting. And indeed, to much information.

    i find it interesting that you referred to her interview as "sweet". i say that because she talks of ignoring his bad habits (drinking & womanizing) and no one says boo but when it's the same situation but involving an African American entertainer/athlete/celebrity everyone is quick to say that a woman that puts up with that is in it for the money or perks or whatever. the prejudice in the media is astonishing.

    he may well have taken 10-15 showers per day
    I have heard of obsessive/neurotic/compulsive people who shower each and every time they finish going to the bathroom
    .
    and that would be around a dozen times a day if you think of how may times you have to use the restroom
    .
    so her statement isn't inconceivable
    .
    and who would dare to suggest to him that he had a "problem"
    because of who he was he was surrounded by YES people and ENABLERS (like his wife was when she kept looking the other way during his drinken episodes-his mean, explosive side when drinking gin and his numerous affairs)

    She wasn't being literal about the showers. He like to keep himself fresh, and smelled like lilacs.
