Though it's been more than 50 years since Debbie's husband left her for her dear friend, Debbie and Eddie's divorce remains one of the biggest scandals in Hollywood history.

Debbie says she started hearing rumors of a relationship between Elizabeth and Eddie. "He had gone to New York for some business," Debbie says. "But I didn't know it was monkey business."

Elizabeth was also in New York, and Debbie tried to call both of their rooms. She got no answer. "I called his room and he wasn't there. So then I called Elizabeth's room. Eddie took the call," she says. "So then I heard Elizabeth saying, 'Who is it, darling?' I said, 'Would you just roll over and put Elizabeth on the phone?' So he did. She wouldn't take the call. He rolled out of bed and [came] home."
