[on Loretta Young
] She was, and is, the only actress I really dislike. She was sickeningly sweet, a pure phony. Her two faces sent me home angry and crying several times.
Her marriage to composer Howard Grode lasted only three months before they separated. In 1951, she married actor Willard Parker
and the marriage lasted until her death in 1992. Parker later became a successful real estate dealer in Indian Wells, near Palm Springs, California. Virginia owned and operated a boutique near his office.
