“Maid in the living room, cook in the kitchen, whore in the bedroom” (Jerry Hall)

Jerry Hall was married to Mick Jagger (of the Rolling Stones) and is, perhaps, the most famous Texas model. She came a long way from the woman who once worked at a Dairy Queen in Mesquite, Texas.

Hall said she had this advice on keeping a man like Mick: “My mother said it was simple to keep a man; you must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom.” Hall then added her personal touch to that advice.


Wikipedia: Jerry Hall
Jerry Faye Hall (born July 2, 1956 in Gonzales, Texas) is an English American supermodel and actress known for being Mick Jagger’s long-time companion and possibly wife (in 1990, the two were married in Bali but the legal validity of the marriage has since been questioned). Hall began a secret affair with Jagger while still engaged to Bryan Ferry.

Hall has written her autobiography, entitled Jerry Hall’s Tall Tales, published in 1985. In this book, she describes her early life in Mesquite, Texas. She also relates her experiences as a young model living in Paris.

In 1989, she appeared in director Tim Burton’s Batman, in a supporting role as Alicia Hunt, a gangster’s moll who is disfigured by the Joker.

In 1990 she joined many other guests for Roger Waters’ massive performance of The Wall in Berlin. She also starred in commercials for Bovril.

Her marriage to Jagger was annulled in 1999. They have four children together: Elizabeth, James, Georgia, and Gabriel.

Pg. 83:
My mother said it was simple to keep a man; you must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. I said I’d hire the other two and take care of the bedroom bit.
--JERRY HALL, former Texan model and vice versa, sharing her strategy for encouraging mate Mick Jagger to spend some quality time at home.

3 December 1959, Long Beach (CA) Press-Telegram, Molly Mayfield column, pg. B7, col. 3:
A man wants a woman that is a lady in the parlor, a good cook in the kitchen, an economist when she goes shopping and a wench in the bedroom.

27 November 1990, Elyria (Ohio) Chronicle-Telegram, “Stones’ Mick Jagger finally ties the knot,” pg. A3, col. 3:
Jagger and Hall, 34, a model and former Dairy Queen employee in Mesquite, Texas, have been together for 12 years. She has often said her mother taught her three secrets to keeping a man happy. “Be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen—and a whore in the bedroom. And I figure so long as I have a maid and a cook, I’ll do the rest myself.”

26 February 1993, Chicago Daily Herald, “Actress Diane Ladd: Don’t call her a Southern belle” by Dana Kennedy, sec. 6, pg. 12, col. 1:
NEW YORK—At 50, actress Diane Ladd still has the honeyed drawl of her Southern girlhood. But she’s worked hard to overcome her roots.

“Southern women are supposed to be the greatest wives—next to the Japanese, we were raised to be slaves,” says Ladd during a break in a whirlwind trip to Manhattan to promote her new film, “The Cemetery Club.”

Ladd swivels around in her chair and pauses dramatically for emphasis.

“They’ve got to be the best cook in the kitchen, a lady in the parlor and a whore in the bedroom. I believe that totally. I’ve come a long way.”
