Early life

Stallone was born Jacqueline M. Labofish in Washington, District of Columbia, USA, the daughter of a Breton socialite, Jeanne Clerec, and a prominent attorney, John Labofish.[1] Her mother was born in Brest (Brittany) in 1901,[2] while her paternal grandparents, Rose (née Lamlec) and Charles Labofisz, were Jewish immigrants from Odessa.[3][4][5][6] During her youth, Stallone was a trapeze artist in a circus and a chorus girl in a nightclub. She was also a hairdresser. Stallone lived a relatively quiet life for most of her years. Even after Sylvester starred in the film Rocky in 1976 she remained unknown to the general public.

Television appearances

Stallone appeared on the 1980s wrestling program called GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Stallone was shown rapping with Americana, Mt. Fiji and Susie Spirit behind her. She rapped about Aunt Kittie's girls and making them kitty litter. Stallone became famous in her own right during the mid-1990s, by publishing astrology books, making television appearances, and setting up a psychic hotline where she would charge telephone callers for the advice of her and other operators. She also invented the term "rumpology", which, according to her, is an art similar to that of palm reading except that the procedure is done by examining pictures of people's rear ends. She also claims that she can consult dogs to find out about the future. She also became involved in the cosmetics industry, launching facial masks and other products that she claimed cured skin problems.

On May 21, 1992 Stallone appeared on The Howard Stern Show and engaged in a heated on-air argument with Sylvester's dad, Frank Stallone Sr. She accused him of being horrible in bed and that he wanted to have Sylvester aborted. She said that she faked the abortion and that Frank didn't know about it until she gave birth.

In January 2005, she appeared in the UK TV series Celebrity Big Brother as a "surprise" contestant. She was brought onto the show to create tension within the "house", as her former daughter-in-law Brigitte Nielsen, with whom she notoriously did not get along, was also a contestant. When Jackie entered, Brigitte exclaimed "Oh my God, Jackie!" to which Jackie replied "Yeah, Yeah, it's Jackie". She was the first contestant voted out by viewers after spending four days in the house.

Stallone appeared on BBC TV Show Through the Keyhole in March 2007, where Stefanie Powers explored her LA home and then interviewed her.

Jokes

Her claims have inspired many jokes, and she has been widely ridiculed by the media about her alleged powers. On one edition of Saturday Night Live, actress Janeane Garofalo played her during a skit that mocked her psychic hotline.

In their 2005 Christmas Special, comedic duo French & Saunders parodied Jackie Stallone's appearance on Celebrity Big Brother UK and her interaction with her former daughter-in-law Brigitte Nielsen. But Stallone has also made many friends in the entertainment business after becoming famous herself. One of them is Cristina Saralegui, who proclaimed her friendship with Stallone during a show where she was a special guest.

Quotes

  • “I was the only astrologer to forecast Bush-Jr’s victory during the presidential election. I was the only one to forecast that the margin would make up only 200 votes; none of the astrologers did, but I was correct. It is impossible to make mistakes in forecasts, because any mistakes can ruin the credibility of the astrologer. However, I sometimes run such risks.”[7]
