Celebrity Health: Dancing Through the Pain
When I do a show I have to eat more vegetables and protein, especially as I get older. My body is breaking down a little, so I do physical therapy and Gyrotonics for my hips and joints.

The show was very hard, and I was in almost every number. The stages werent the greatest dance floors either.

Carolyn Blaine, 65: Celebrity events organizer, TV game shows contestant
Blaine, a University of Georgia graduate, learned to love travel during a two-month tour of Europe. Joining Osborne Travel Service in Atlanta , she divided her time between lining up clients for luxury and student trips to Europe, Asia or the South Pacific and acting as a guide overseas. In 1972, an airliner carrying her and her clients overshot the runway while landing in Tahiti and had to be evacuated because the plane had caught fire. Her sister, Helen Heyd of Atlanta , said Blaine was the last passenger to exit after checking to make sure all her clients were safe outside and after rescuing a satchel containing their travel documents. Thats just the way Carolyn was, Heyd said. She stayed cool during a crisis. Heyd said her sister prized orderliness, adding that Blaine arranged her clothes closets as meticulously as she planned celebrity events. In 1986 Blaine moved to California and was always on the go during the Hollywood phase of her career, according to a friend, Bill Leonard of Rancho Mirage, Calif. He said she became a personal assistant of Los Angeles Dodger star Steve Garvey and arranged social and publicity events for him and charity affairs for the Dodger organization. She networked with other personal assistants and got to know movie stars who employed them, becoming a regular presence at Academy Awards ceremonies. She went on to coordinate Elizabeth Taylors 65th birthday gala and several Emmy award nights. During this period she also worked for Prince Albert II of Monaco, staging a succession of annual events in Monte Carlo both the World Music Awards and a pro-celebrity tennis and golf tournament.
