Grease is one of my wife’s favorite movies. She will love this story when I share it with her, so am sharing with others reading, too …
Sadly, singer and Grease actress Olivia Newton John has been diagnosed with breast cancer three times since 1992. Recently, she donated the jacket and her iconic black pants from Grease to an auction for her cancer center.
CNN you did a wonderful thing with this news story, especially this time of year, about a wealthy super fan who chose to remain anonymous, that purchased Olivia Newton John’s iconic black Grease jacket for nearly a quarter of a million dollars — and then returned it to her.
“This jacket belongs to you and the collective soul of those who love you, those for whom you are the soundtrack of their lives. It should not sit in a billionaire’s closet for country club bragging rights,” the anonymous buyer said in Los Angeles this weekend, in a video posted on Facebook by Julien’s Auctions. “For this reason I humbly and respectfully return it to its rightful owner, which is you.”Olivia Newton-John’s ‘Grease’ jacket: A man bought it for $243,200 and gave it back to her – CNN Style

The talented actress was surrounded by friends while jumping up and down on her bed when she got excited over the nomination and when she realized the bottom part of the blue robe she was wearing opened, the video blanked out with a beep. When it cut back to the clip, it showed the blonde beauty and her friends laughing hysterically as she covered herself and gushed to a cute dog about the nomination.Hollywood Life
