Mae West: Gurley

MAE WEST gave good advice. In fact, there is speculation that the secret to Helen Gurley Brown's long life — — the former Cosmopolitan editrix turns 87 in three weeks — — may lie with the Hollywood sex siren.
• • The Cosmo gal's husband, David Brown, tells Charlotte Chandler in her new West bio, "She Always Knew How" (Simon & Schuster): "I remember Mae's advice to Helen was, 'Always have two almonds a day to keep cancer away.' Helen has observed that ever since."
• • David Brown notes that even later in life, Mae West was doggedly pursued by men: "We used to have dinner with Mae . . . and during dinner, several sorts of mash notes came over from businessmen at nearby tables."
