There is one more point about the diary that seems questionable. On October 13, 1983 Vanity attended the premier for Michael Jackson's Thriller video. The premier was held at a movie theater in L.A. and was attended by many celebrities including Eddie Murphy. Vanity attended the event with Mickey Free and there is a famous photo of the two of them together that was taken at this event. I remember it well because it was the first photo I had ever seen of Vanity. According to the diary she was still in mlps until October 26th or 27th. So the writer of the diary expects us to believe that she flew to L.A. to attend that premier (with another man) on the 13th and then flew back to mlps to say her goodbyes. Denise said herself that she was not making much money in those days I doubt she was flying back and forth at this period in her life. Look if the diary is legit then I will stand corrected but I don't think we should just accept it as truth without fact checking it first.

Look, people are splitting hairs here. But I do have my own suspicion/conspiracy theory about the diary, only about 'who' bought it, and how it was obtained. If it is one person I suspect, then they seem like an opportunist and at that time they would have grabbed what they could get. Don't bother asking me who I suspect because thats as far as I will go. And if its them, then its just wrong and then I wouldn't put it past them to doctor some stuff and that would also explain why some pages are missing.

On another note, you need a person who is trained at studying handwriting to know if its hers throughout the diary. Other than that its just guessing that its not hers.

Whatever the case may be, somebody paid a good sum of money to get it and thats the risk they took. Happens all the time. No different from buying fake designer goods on eBay. Its a mindfield.

Overall, all of our theories are just guess work.

I liked the 'God has blessed this body' and 'Vanity will be Vanity' lines in the diary, because they seem like something she might have written.

Hello,

I started working on this track as a tribute to Denise. I was unable to finish it in a more timely manner because I was swamped with working on finishing up my degree. I finally got a chance to finish it last night and I just wanted to share it. My hope is that it makes you smile and remember how wonderful she was. It's just a fun track and I hope you like it. It is the first track "4D Pt.3 (Feat. The Starr Company)."

odd question-how tall was V?

5 foot 7. Was Denise buried or cremated? Did Wendy, Lisa or Morris go to her funeral? I was so shocked when I heard that she had died. She was (and still is) one of my favourite performers. The most beautiful & sexy woman that ever lived. Vanity will never be forgotten, she will live on through her TV/film roles and songs. 57 was too young but at least she is free from pain now.

It must be said, the hard sober truth when it comes to drug addiction, there is never anyone to blame but yourself. It's never a good time too hear it, but when the impact is the greatest it must be said. It wasn't the persona or the music or the sex that destroyed her kidneys, it was hard drugs. Crack cocaine. When you smoke crack cocaine, you don't live happily ever after. [Edited 2/15/16 21:41pm]

Drug addiction is a disease. No-one chooses to be a drug addict. In her case she was abused as a child and I'm fairly certain her addiction stemmed from a desire to escape that inner despair.

If we have to play the blame game, blame child abuse (&/or hollyweird/the biz).
