The Crescent City seems to have a way of attracting this kind of energy...

"Verita Bouvaire Thompson, the hard-drinking mistress and long-time companion of Humphrey Bogart who described herself as 'Bacall's worst nightmare', has died aged 89...

Following Hurricane Katrina, Thompson was one of those who refused to leave her home. She commented: 'Lauren Bacall failed to chase me out of Hollywood; Katrina won't force me out of New Orleans.'
