**Attention, NP Fans!**

You folks may remember the post we made in regard to the impending sale of Davy Jones’ house in Beavertown, and the harassment that the Realtor was receiving from Monkees fans as a result. Well, we also made a post on the NP Facebook page about it, and today we received a lovely message from the Realtor herself, Melissa, who thanked us (and all of our fans!) for sticking up for her in the comments on that post.

Melissa told us that almost all of the Monkees fans she has heard from have been kind and supportive of the Jones family (which unfortunately the newspaper article neglected to mention), and that she feels that the negativity of a small minority of Monkees fans do not at all reflect poorly on the majority, who are lovely and decent people. She also said to us that the negative comments say more about the person making them than they do about her or her job, and we highly agree with this statement, as it applies not just to this particular situation, but to many others that we all face in life.

So a very big “Thank you!” to Melissa the Realtor for messaging us with such kind words, and an equally big “Thank you!” to all of you guys for truly being the best darn Monkees fans we at NP could ask for. Yay!!

DAMN YOU, psychojello AND bethpurple!

Pull excerpt from this article (note the bolded portion):

”[…]Bowen Agency Realtor Melissa B. Laniewski said fan reaction to news of the property sales was swift, and negative.  

“I have heard from some angry fans who feel that this was their last connection to him,” she said.

…This is completely ridiculous (though not altogether surprising), and almost exactly what we anticipated happening the moment the decision was announced. While it is understandable that people feel a connection to the house because of Davy, the house is not all that remains of him. His memory is and will continue to be kept alive through his music and the Monkees’ TV show, and through the lives he touched. 

The amount of ownership and entitlement that people feel toward Davy (and the other Monkees) is disturbing, however…and to make an already difficult decision even harder by going after someone who had nothing to do with the decision to sell the house is beyond the pale. This woman is doing her job—nothing more, nothing less—and she should not be attacked for it as if she pilfered the house of Davy’s belongings and is selling it off for personal gain. Totally unacceptable.

Hello! I was wondering how young each of the Monkee's girlfriends have been (like the ones with the biggest age gaps between them and the girls) bluejay--way

Well, from the relationships and dalliances that we know of, all of the Monkees clearly have a variety of ages in the women they’ve dated. But of the confirmed girlfriends/significant others that each Monkee has had—and let’s be honest, we could all use a color-coded flow chart at this point, though it would probably look something like this:

image                                   By all accounts, it doesn’t make sense.

—the two Monkees with the greatest age gaps between them and their girlfriends/significant others have been Nez (he married Victoria Kennedy in the year 2000, when he was 58 and she 32, giving them a 26-year age gap) and Davy (he married Jessica Pacheco in the year 2009, when he was 64 and she was 32, giving them a 32-year age gap).

So we would say that the largest age gap between the Monkees and their girlfriends/wives has been in the 30-40 year range. Hope that answers your question!
