Andy rooney dating older women
or those of you sick of the negativity on television news shows, and wish we still had Andy Rooney's humor on 60 Minutes, maybe you'd like to know what he was really like off-camera. I didn't even care if his eyebrows entered a room five minutes before the rest of him. I'd had phone calls at home from ageless hunks like Michael Douglas and Bob Barker, but nothing prepared me for a call from Andy Rooney. There are those who may think that "I love you" are the best words to hear, but I maintain that the best words legitimately came from the mouth of Andy Rooney himself, when he growled, "Go ahead and use 'em." I choose to think the gruff-but-kindly way he spoke those closing words was really his version of affection.

The Mafia wanted him dead as he racked up huge debts but realised "it would be bad for business for them to put him in a cement block," actor Wally Cassell told the authors."Mickey put everyone around him in jeopardy from the Mob," adds Lertzman.
Born Joseph Yule Jr to parents in burlesque, his first crib was a trunk. When I was 40 nobody wanted me."But hard times did not stop him womanising, boozing, gambling and marrying.
Divorce followed and Lertzman says: "It cost Mickey his entire fortune to buy his wife's silence and keep him out of jail."But debauchery ran in his veins.
Comedian Groucho Marx introduced Rooney to a Hollywood brothel where the girls had all undergone cosmetic surgery to resemble actresses and he became a regular.
Well, I didn't exactly dance with him but I was at a charity ball, and in an accidental partner switch, his wife ended up with my date, and I ended up with Jimmy. I asked Andy Rooney if it was okay to use the alleged Andy Rooneyisms in my column.She said: "I finally told him: 'Look, Mickey, I'd have to lose my soul to do what you want to do.'" Divorce followed swiftly.
