The truth about Bill Shatner and James Doohan
 
I have read so many silly rumors about why Jim hated Bill by now and the latest offending poor Anita - that I've just got to speak up.

Yes. Jim disliked Bill. End of statement. There was little more to it than that. They simply didn't hit it off. OK people?

Now the latest rumor was that Bill had slept with Jim's 2nd wife. I can understand how Shatner's reputation probably sparked these rumors. But if people, who know neither of them go saying Doohan's wife cheated on him, then this is very unfair to Anita Doohan because she really is the sweetest woman. And has had a lot of bad luck with her ex-husbands. Including Jimmy Doohan.

True. Shatner had affairs with beautiful women. The real ladiesman on Star Trek was however Jim Doohan. He would hit on every attractive woman within sight.

Well, Jim always took responsibility for his marriage falling apart so please don't call Anita a cheat. Jim was the cheat here. Jimmy Doohan was a funny bastard and everything else but his second wife divorced him over spousal infidelity because he was notoriously chasing everything that wears a skirt.

OK? That's all.

I know this because I know Anita Doohan-Dwyer. And I post this because what people are saying is very unfair to both Anita and Bill.

Who's saying it? I haven't read anything on this subject here. But, if false statements/assumptions are being made then I can understand you wanting to rebut them...

I don't think this is appropriate without some form of corroboration.

I would just like to make clear that I did not sleep with either Jim Doohan or William Shatner.

Unless this thread is going to have some really bad photoshop proof of Jimmy and Big Bill sleeping together, it probably doesn't justify its title or the right to remain unclosed.

Instead of K/S, it would be K/Sc, right?

Why does it even matter?

I never have and never will understand people's explicit need to know and judge the actors who portray fictional characters personal lives. If you enjoy the show, that should be enough. It's not as if you know these actors and are friends or family with them, so who cares what they do on their own time?

You wouldn't get this into your barber or banker's life would you? But you still use their services, yes? So the same should apply to actors too. :rolleyes:

Someone should get that picture of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in bed together and photoshop James Doohan's face and Shat's face on them...:guffaw:

That would be priceless! :lol:
