In her heyday, Eartha Kitt was asked to perform for the King and Queen of Greece. The next day, she got a call from a reporter claiming: "They say you shocked the King And Queen Of Greece. What did you do?"
Kitt asked him, "What are you talking about?" He replied, "It's being reported that you were risque and vulgar and you should have never been asked to perform for royalty."
Kitt was shocked.
The following day, the headlines read: "Eartha Kitt Is Vulgar In Front Of King And Queen Of Greece."
Finally, the King and Queen were located on a yacht in the Pacific. They were wired to give their opinion about Eartha Kitt, they said: "We don't know what all the fuss is about. We thought Eartha was wonderful."
Due to the scandal, Kitt's salary went from $2,500 dollars per week to $10,000 dollars per week.
