Jackee Harry hilariously recalls being slapped by Eartha Kitt over boyfriend drama


Michael Schwartz/Getty ImagesAs fierce as she was feisty, the late, legendary entertainer Eartha Kitt certainly didn’t tolerate nonsense when it came to matters of the heart — and Jackee Harry can attest to that. 

Wednesday, Harry revealed on Twitter that the late actress had once gotten physical with her over some boyfriend drama. 

“Eartha Kitt slapped the f— outta me! She thought I was sleeping with her boyfriend…which I was, but I didn’t know he was taken,” the Sister Sister actress shared while responding to a post asking people to describe their most surreal encounter with a celebrity. 

Harry then went on to hilariously explain that the man who they were both involved was quite the catch. 

“He didn’t just eat the groceries, he restocked the shelves,” the comedian quipped without naming the mystery man.

An Emmy-winning actress and singer, Kitt was perhaps best known for her role as Lady Eloise in the 1992 film Boomerang and for playing Catwoman in the final season of the campy Batman ’60s TV series. She died in 2008 at the age of 81.
