When Billie Beat Bobby: The True Story Behind Battle of the Sexes

Forty-four years ago this month, Billie Jean King, one of the top female tennis players of all time, beat Bobby Riggs, a retired former #1 player in the men’s circuit, in front of an estimated worldwide audience of 90 million people.

Besides sending the cocksure and (admittedly) chauvinistic Riggs into a depression, the match, which some dismissed as a publicity stunt, would go on to be remembered as a symbolic achievement for women in a decade of tremendous social progress.

Now, the story behind the game, and the changes it helped inspire, is on the big screen in Battle of the Sexes, with Steve Carell as Riggs and Emma Stone as King.

Here’s the true story behind the historic showdown:

Meet Bobby Riggs

When we first meet Riggs in Battle of the Sexes, he’s a 55-year-old has-been with a gambling problem and a desperate need for attention. But back in the 1940s, he was one of the best tennis players in the world, with six major titles under his belt. He had won Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships as an amateur and was ranked the #1 player internationally for three years.

After he retired in 1951, Riggs used his considerable prowess as a promoter and entertainer to keep the spotlight on tennis — and himself. Ultimately unsatisfied with his life outside the court, he found he could gain attention in the press by disparaging the quality of women’s tennis and claiming that he could beat any of its top players.

While Riggs’ pronouncements failed to gain much traction among female tennis pros — including King, who turned him down repeatedly — he finally found a taker in Australian champ Margaret Court, who, at the age of 30, was the top women’s player in the world.

They played each other in front of 5,000 fans in Ramona, California on May 13, Mother’s Day. Using a series of drop shots and lobs to fluster Court, Riggs won the match easily. Dubbed the Mother’s Day Massacre, the event earned Riggs the cover of both Sports Illustrated and Time.

“Now I want King bad,” he proclaimed after the game. “I’ll play her on clay, grass, wood, cement, marble or roller skates … We got to keep this sex thing going. I’m a woman specialist now.”

Billie Jean King 

At 29, King was at the top of her game when she finally accepted Riggs’ challenge in July 1973, agreeing to participate in a $ 100,000, winner-take-all televised showdown dubbed by promoters as the “Battle of the Sexes.”

At this point in her career, King, who would go on to win a total of 29 Grand Slam titles before she retired, was already an outspoken advocate for women’s tennis and women’s rights in general.

For instance, when the Pacific Southwest Tennis Tournament offered women just 15% of the prize money that it awarded the men — despite the fact that both finals earned equal ticket sales —  King led a walk-out. She and several other women went on to create the Virginia Slims tour and later the Women’s Tennis Association.

Although she was in her prime, like Riggs, King was also immersed in her own personal problems at the time of the match. During the lead up to the game, she was in the midst of an affair with her hairdresser-turned-secretary Marilyn Barnett. King was still married to her husband, Larry King, at the time. The couple divorced in 1987, and King has since become a prominent LGBTQ advocate.

The Battle of the Sexes

Despite her seriousness about promoting women’s tennis, King did playfully engage in the outrageous trash talking — led by Riggs — that drove press for the match throughout the summer.

The duo held a series of press conferences together, where banter included barbs from Riggs like, “I’ll tell you why I’ll win. She’s a woman and they don’t have the emotional stability.”

Finally, on September 20, 1973, 30,000 fans filled the new Houston Astrodome to enjoy the spectacle. King made her grand entrance on a Roman-style litter carried by four buff, shirtless members of the Rice University track team. Riggs, meanwhile, opted for a rickshaw driven by a group of buxom models dubbed “Bobby’s bosom buddies.”

They even exchanged gifts: King received a novelty-sized Sugar Daddy lollipop (Riggs’ personal sponsor for the match), while Riggs was given a baby pig, a symbol of his self-proclaimed chauvinism.

While the final score card suggests an easy victory for King, she later admitted to getting rattled early on, telling CNN that after Riggs broke her serve in the first set, she realized she “had to win” given the implications of the match.

Having learned from Court’s mistakes, King refused to be fooled by Riggs’ tricky drop shots and lobs. She ended up winning the contest in straight sets: 6–4, 6–3, 6–3.

The Aftermath 

The match represented an enormously satisfying win for women in tennis, but critics were quick to downplay its significance.

Many argued that the age difference (26 years) between King and Riggs played too large a factor in the outcome, while others theorized that Riggs lost the match on purpose to settle gambling debts.

Years later ESPN would even report that the entire game was rigged by the mob, but those close to Bobby have said the rumors are “ridiculous” — citing Riggs’ fragile ego as proof enough alone that he’d never bet against himself.

Another clue lies in their personal post-match conversation, in which King later revealed Riggs told her, “I really underestimated you.” He also reportedly later said after the match, “This is the worst thing in the world I’ve ever done.”

On a positive note, after the “Battle of the Sexes,” King and Riggs remained close friends until his death in 1995. King said she spoke to Riggs the day before he died, and they said “I love you” to each other.

Battle of the Sexes is in select theaters now — it opens wide Sept. 29.

I Barely Beat The Easiest Level of Cuphead

Listen, it could have even been the tutorial, I’m not sure. But whatever it was, it was an early level, and it was absolutely brutal.  I’d never played Cuphead before –  in fact I think I’m the only person I know who hasn’t – and as I began my journey through a simple forest area it felt pretty natural and intuitive. It is a platformer steeped in history, after all.

But then the enemies started flying at me from all angles, many of them spitting rocks and other deadly projectiles. I kept forgetting you can’t jump on them, it’s a run and gun action platformer, so I had to spin right and left constantly, then shoot up, then shoot down, then jump to avoid an oncoming leapy guy. My health bar was at four, then three, then two, then one. I died. I died again. I died again.

Olivia Newton-John Is ‘Totally Confident’ She’ll Beat Breast Cancer Again

Olivia Newton-John is staying optimistic following her recent cancer diagnosis. 

The Australian songstress revealed earlier this month she was battling cancer for the second time, forcing her to postpone her nationwide tour to focus on her health.

Newton-John was first treated for breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43, undergoing a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. After canceling shows two weeks ago due to back pain, testing revealed that the cancer had returned and metastasized to her sacrum, a bone in the lower back.

“I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you. I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the U.S. and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia,” the singer told People in an exclusive statement. “I’m totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others! Love and light, Olivia.”

The “Grease” actress is currently laying low in her southern California ranch home with husband John Easterling while she undergoes photon radiation therapy, in addition to pursuing natural wellness therapies. After just a week of treatment, Newton-John’s pain level has already “gone from [level] eight to about a two,” according to her husband. 

“We both have the same unshakable belief that she’s going to have a wonderful success story,” Easterling told People. “We’re not trying to be positive. We have an absolute knowingness that we can turn this around.”

“She’s not naive and doesn’t get immobilized,” friend and talk-show host Leeza Gibbons added. “She finds light in the darkest corners and just always has.”

If all goes well, Newton-John reportedly plans to return to the stage later this year and resume touring for her album “LIV,” which was partly inspired by her cancer battle, as well as the death of her sister from brain cancer in 2013.

Matthew Perry Once Beat Up Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

He certainly wasn’t there for Justin Trudeau.

Actor Matthew Perry awkwardly revealed Wednesday how he once beat Trudeau up years before he became Canada’s prime minister.

The “Friends” star told Jimmy Kimmel he was around 12 years old when he and a friend rounded on Trudeau, who was a couple of years younger than them and attended the same school in Canada.

“I think he was excelling at a sport that we weren’t as good at,” Perry said. “It was pure jealousy.”

Although Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, was Canada’s prime minister at the time, Perry said he didn’t think that was the reason why they beat him up. 

I’m not bragging about this. This was terrible,” Perry said. “I was a stupid kid.”

Havana Ball: Chanel Gives Cruise a Latin Beat

HAVANA – Here’s a little-known fact about Karl Lagerfeld: He’s a massive fan of Latin music, which he reckons is in the throes of a comeback.
“Mambo No. 5” by Xavier Cugat, who popularized the genre in America in the Forties and Fifties, is a particular favorite.
Probably even lesser known is the fact that Lagerfeld was once a cha-cha and tango champion. The German designer took lessons in his early days in Paris at the Georges & Rosy dance academy on the Rue de Varenne, and would practice in nightclubs.
“I won contests,” Lagerfeld said Monday as he put the finishing touches on Chanel’s cruise collection, which he dubbed “Coco Cuba” and paraded Tuesday night on El Paseo del Prado, a handsome tree-lined boulevard framed by four statues of lions, a symbol of Chanel.
The audience took in the open-air show seated on park benches as the Latin beats ricocheted off the handsome buildings, capturing the essence of lively, steamy Havana, where music leaks from open windows at night and dancing can spontaneously erupt on sidewalks.
The collection riffed lightly on Cuban-isms: The neat vertical pleats of guayaberas — typical men’s shirts — were incorporated into Chanel jackets; beach-y colors and slogans were splashed

Wade, Heat beat Raptors in OT after Lowry’s halfcourt heave (Yahoo Sports)

TORONTO, CAN - MAY 3: Justise Winslow #20 of the Miami Heat looks on as Kyle Lowry #7 of the Toronto Raptors sinks a game tying 3 point shot with no time remaining during Game One of the NBA Eastern Conference Semi Finals at Air Canada Centre on May 3, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It only counts as one win, though the Miami Heat had to work twice as hard to get it. Goran Dragic scored 26 points, Dwyane Wade had seven of his 24 in overtime after Kyle Lowry’s halfcourt shot tied it at the buzzer, and the Heat beat the Toronto Raptors 102-96 on Tuesday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. ”We had to win the game twice tonight,” Wade said.

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss


Ask any doctor or nutritionist who treats patients with diabetes: the first focus for controlling the disease is a healthy eating plan. But typical plans have been all about what you can’t eat and what to do if you fall prey to a craving. Now a diabetic’s day might start with a smoked salmon-and-dill omelet, continue to a lunch of three-bean chili, and finish with a dinner of grilled shrimp with a dessert of chocolate terrine. It’s a kind of eating that virtually guarantees not just control of the disease and a satisfied appetite, but an emphasis on nutrients that target diabetes, beating back its potential side effects and maintaining a healthy weight. Dr. Howard Shapiro uses the same visual method of food comparisons that made his bestselling weight-loss books so popular and easy to use.

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss: The Visual Program to Prevent and Control Diabetes

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss: The Visual Program to Prevent and Control Diabetes


Beat diabetes "and" lose weight Ask any doctor or nutritionist who treats patients with diabetes: the first focus for controlling the disease is a healthy eating plan. But typical diabetic eating plans have been all about what you can’t eat and what to do if you fall prey to a craving for foods you shouldn’t have. But now a typical day in the life of a diabetic might start with a smoked salmon-and-dill omelet, continue to a lunch of three-bean chili, salsa and guacamole, and finish with a dinner of grilled shrimp and shaved fennel, topped off by a dessert of chocolate terrine. It’s a kind of eating that virtually guarantees not just control of the disease and a satisfying of the appetite, but an emphasis on specific nutrients that actually target diabetes, beating back its potential side effects and maintaining the healthy weight that is key to controlling the disease. In "Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss," Dr. Howard Shapiro uses the same visual method of food comparisons that made his bestselling weight-loss books so popular and easy to use. Now he has teamed with top chef Franklin Becker, a diabetic himself, and together they reveal the secrets to a diet that can actually help you prevent and beat diabetes–without depriving yourself of delicious food.
