Monroe’s mum paid the Goddards $25 a week to raise her.

The couple were intensely religious, and they practised biblical doctrines; Monroe was not permitted to go to the cinema among other banned behaviours.

But the couple could not afford to bring Monroe with them when Doc’s work was moved to the East Coast.

 Lindsay Lohan

Early life

Born on July 2, 1986, Lindsay Morgan Lohan was part of a family closely related to the entertainment world.

His father Michael, a former child actor, had several careers;

He owned a pasta business, worked in finance as a Wall Street merchant, and produced films.

Lohan’s mother Dina has also been shown to have many talents.

The former professional dancer, one of the Rockets of the famous Radio City Music Hall,

also worked as an analyst on Wall Street and later became the manager of her daughter.

Lohan’s younger brother, also named Michael, is also an actor,

as he made his film debut in a small role in The Parent Trap. Lohan has two other younger brothers, Aliana and Dakota.

Professional life:

The role of Lohan took place in 2002 when she was chosen as teenage girl Anna Coleman in another Disney remake, Freaky Friday.

Lohan plays a teenage girl involved in constant conflict with her widowed mother, Tess Coleman, played by Jamie Lee Curtis (1958–).

Anna and Tess hardly understand each other Tess complains

about her daughter’s loud music, punk-rock clothes, and a love for children.

Anna regrets her mother’s plans to remarry, her attempts to

control the details of her daughter’s life, and her refusal to take Anna’s musical ambitions seriously.

After having dinner in a Chinese restaurant one evening, Anna and Tess receive identical messages on their makeshift cookies,

a sign of the mysterious event which causes the mother and daughter to wake up in each other’s bodies the next morning.

Jessica Simpson

Early Life

Jessica Ann Simpson was born Joseph “Joe” Simpson and his wife Tina Ann on 10 July 1980, in Abilene, Texas.

She has a younger sibling, Ashlee Simpson, who is also an actress and singer-songwriter.

Jessica enlisted in J. In Richardson, Texas, J. Pearce High School, where she became involved in theatre.

In her junior year, however, she left school to study music and later completed the GED exam.

The family often moved when she was a child to work for her father, but eventually settled in Richardson, Texas.

As a child, she sang in the church choir, and when she was 11, she discovered her passion for becoming a musician.

Professional Life

At 12, Jessica Simpson successfully auditioned for a worldwide talent hunt for ‘The Mickey Mouse Club,’ singing ‘Amazing Grace’ and dancing to ‘Ice Ice Boy.’

She eventually won the different levels to become one of the six finalists, along with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Justin Timberlake.

Still, She failed to perform due to nervousness at the final audition.

Luckily, her second chance came in a couple of weeks when she was singing in a church choir.

A guest speaker about to launch a gospel label invited her for an audition and signed her after listening to her interpretation of the version of ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston.

She collaborated with Proclaim Records for the next few years to record her debut album, ‘Jessica,’ which in the end remained unreleased as the record label went bankrupt.

Her grandmother personally sponsored the release of a few copies of the album in 1994, to be submitted as a demo to different record labels.

In July 1997, Columbia Records head Tommy Mottola signed her as a contrast to contemporary singers Spears and Aguilera.

She stormed with her debut single, ‘I Wanna Love You Forever’ in the music industry on September 28, 1999, which reached No.3 on the US ‘Billboard Top 100’ list.

Her debut studio album, ‘Sweet Kisses,’ was released on November 23, 1999. Her then-boyfriend, Nick Lachey, starred on the ‘I Think I’m in Love with You’ single and the title track, ‘Warm Kisses,’ charted on ‘Billboard 200’ at 25.

Following her record label’s suggestion, she expected a polished image for her second album, ‘Irresistible,’ released in May 2001.

The album debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at No.6 but was less commercially successful, and criticized for sexual themes on its lead single.

In 2006, she signed a new record contract with Epic Records and released her fifth studio album, ‘A Public Affair,’ which was the last of her collections to achieve moderate commercial success.

She went on to release two additional studio albums, ‘Do You Know’ (2008) and ‘Happy Christmas’ (2010), both considered to be flops.

Around this time, she also appeared in a few movies — including ‘Employee of the Month’ (2006), ‘Blonde Ambition’ (2007), and ‘Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous’ (2008)— all of which struggled at the box office.

But her 2010 VH1 documentary show, ‘The Price of Beauty,’ which saw her travel around the world in various cultures finding various definitions of beauty, was a success.

In 2002, Palin ran her first statewide campaign in a Republican nomination bid for lieutenant governor but lost by less than 2,000 votes.

Then, in 2003, Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski appointed Palin to preside over the Oil and Gas Management Commission.

A year later, she resigned in protest at what she viewed as

the “lack of integrity” of fellow Alaskan Republican officials, including Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich.

In 2006, Palin beat Murkowski, winning the Republican primary for Governor.

She went on to win the November 2006 general election by beating former Democratic Governor Tony Knowles, 49 to 41 percent.
