S5E7: Strangers In The Night | Jane Wyman and Ronald Reagan & Diahann Carroll

Sinatra was a big booster for Ronald Reagan as California governor, part of Sinatra’s own shift from Democratic to Republican politics. This week in our Ocean’s Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra season, Stacie has the 1940-1949 marriage and divorce of Academy Award winning actress Jane Wyman and future president Ronald Reagan. Then, Alicia has the incredible life and loves of icon and trailblazer Diahann Carroll, a friend and frequent performing partner of the Rat Pack.

Can’t get enough #trashcandy? Join us at for early ad-free releases, bonus divorce stories, weekly Trashy Tidbits, limited series like Trashy Tudors, Funne with Dunne, Side Pieces, and a whole lot more.
