Gypsy Rose Lee (February 9, 1911 - April 26, 1970) was an American actress and burlesque entertainer.
She was born Rose Louise Hovick in Seattle, Washington Gypsy was initially known by her middle name, Louise. Her mother, Rose Thompson, was fifteen when she married John Hovick, who, according to Rose's 1911 birth certificate was an ad salesman with a newspaper. Rose Thompson Hovick was the classic example of a smothering stage mother, though the more horrid details were reportedly whitewashed in Gypsy's memoirs.
A second daughter, Ellen Hovick (better known as actress June Havoc) was born in 1916. She too would be known by her middle name, June (although some sources indicate that Ellen Hovick's middle name was "Evangeline"). After Rose T. Hovick divorced her husband John, the girls earned the family's money by appearing in vaudeville where June's talent shone, while Louise remained in the background.
At the age of 16, June married a boy in the act named Bobby Reed. Mother Rose had Bobby arrested and met him at the police station carrying a hidden gun. She pulled the trigger, but the safety was on, and Bobby was freed. June left the act and went on to give birth to April Reed.
