Personal Quote:

[on actress Clara Bow] She wasn't acceptable socially. Eddie Sutherland, my husband, gave absolutely the best parties in Hollywood. So I asked him one day to invite Clara Bow and he said, "Oh, good heavens, no! We can't have her. We don't know what she'd do. She's from Brooklyn.". See more »

Trivia:

In 1943, she was paid $1500 for the rights to publish her ghostwritten story by "The American Weekly" magazine, but it was never published because Brooks refused to name names or provide salacious details. See more »
