Simonetta Stefanelli Lives!

From a newsletter I receive:
Newsday interviews Simonetta Stefanelli, an actress made famous for her role as the Sicialian girlfriend of Micheal Corleone in the movie The Godfather. Stefanelli is plagued by reports that she is dead, which, she says, is bad for business. "While it is hard to get bad information off the Internet, some sites like Wikipedia can be easily self-corrected, said Peter Levine, an information expert at the University of Maryland who is an advocate for funding by government and institutions of reliable Web portals. Stefanelli said her lawyer, Rosanna Grillo, has asked without success for information about the source of postings. Grillo couldn't be reached for comment yesterday. Stefanelli said she hasn't gone to the Italian media about the problem, fearing more unpleasant publicity. But she decided to talk to Newsday because she recently opened a boutique on Rome's Via Chiana, called Simo Bloom, and wants people to know she is alive."

It is sad that someone would spread such terrible rumors about someone else. But, I am glad to hear this beautiful lady is still alive and hopefully will be entertaining us for many years to come.
