Shirley Jones: Mrs. Partridge Was a Wild Sexy Beast?

Q. I just heard some story about Shirley Jones who played the Partridge Mom being some wild sex-crazed woman. What's up with that? -- Aida, Las Vegas.

Aida, Shirley Jones, who played the Mom in the Partridge Family comedy on ABC years ago, has just published an autobiography in which she confesses to being one sexy beast during her glory days in Hollywood.

According to the Associated Press, Jones says her late husband, the actor Jack Cassidy, was extremely well endowed and she was engaged in a threesome with him and another woman. Not only that, she writes, she could have an orgasm at the drop of a hat.

While now married to comedian Marty Ingels, it appears that old Shirl still has feelings for Cassidy, who was the father to David Cassidy, her co-star in The Partridge Family. The AP story suggests Ingels is still jealous of Jack, although he died in a fire more than two decades ago.

Shirley discloses that Jack Cassidy had an affair with gay songwriter Cole Porter in the early days of their relationship but it didn't faze her. The AP article doesn't share any other sexual tales from the former Mrs. Partridge, but Jones says in the book that the details within contain "the surprise of your lives!"

Let's just hope the rumors about Shirley and David Cassidy aren't true. Right, Shirley?
