Katy Jurado (January 16, 1924 - July 5, 2002) was a Mexican actress. Gypsy went on to host a television talk show, Gypsy. The play and the subsequent movie deal assured Gypsy a steady income. June did not like the way she was portrayed in the piece, but was eventually persuaded not to oppose it for her sister's sake. Gypsy's memoirs, titled Gypsy, were published in 1957, and were taken as inspirational material for the Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim, and Arthur Laurents musical Gypsy: A Musical Fable.

With their mother dead, the sisters now felt free to write about her without risking a lawsuit. When you get your own private kick in the ass, just remember: it's a present from me to you.".

This incident was explained as a suicide. Rose shot and killed one of her guests, (according to Erik Preminger, she killed her own lover, who had made a pass at Gypsy). This property and a farm in Highland Mills, New York, had been rented for her by Gypsy. She and her sister June, who had also become successful, continued to get demands for money from their mother, who had opened a lesbian boardinghouse in a ten-room apartment on West End Avenue in New York City.

They eventually divorced. Gypsy was married for a third time in 1948 to Julio de Diego. While married to Kirkland, she had a son with Otto Preminger; he was named Erik Lee, and has been known successively as Erik Kirkland, Erik de Diego, and Erik Preminger. They divorced in 1944.

Her acting was panned. She eventually went to Hollywood, where she was billed as Louise Hovick, and married Arnold "Bob" Mizzy on August 25, 1937 at the insistence of the film studio. She took the name Gypsy Rose Lee and stripped at Minsky's for four years, where she was frequently arrested and had relationships with unsavory characters such as Rags Ragland and Eddy Braun. Her innovation here was her sense of humor, for while she stripped quite as thoroughly as any burlesque star, she made the crowd laugh.

Eventually it became apparent that Louise could earn money in burlesque. Louise's singing and dancing talents were insufficient to sustain the act without June. June left the act. She pulled the trigger, but the safety was on, and Bobby was freed.

Rose had Bobby arrested and met him at the police station carrying a hidden gun. At the age of 16 June married a boy in the act named Bobby Reed. Her two daughters earned the family's money by appearing in vaudeville, where June's talent shone, while Louise remained in the background.
