The 77-year-old actress, says she got crabs after a fling with former New York City Mayor John Lindsay in the 1960s.
In her new memoir, Henderson says she cheated on her husband after the also-married Lindsay put the moves on her at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Henderson recalls waking up the next morning at home and seeing “little black things” crawling on her bed and body. After a call to the doctor, Henderson found out she had pubic lice.
Lindsay, who was the mayor of New York from 1966 to 1973, sent a note of apology and flowers. “Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata,” she says. “He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”
Lindsay died in 2000. So obviously isn’t here to defend himself, or his Crabs.
