Sheilah Graham Westbrook

Sheilah Graham (born Lily Shiel; 15 September 1904 – 17 November 1988) was a British-born, nationally syndicated American gossip columnist during Hollywood's "Golden Age".

Graham also was known for her relationship with F.Scott Fitzgerald, a relationship she played a significant role in immortalizing through the autobiographical Beloved Infidel, a bestseller that was made into a film.

In her youth, she had been a showgirl and a freelance writer for Fleet Street in London and had published several short stories and two novels.

These early experiences would converge in her career in Hollywood, which spanned nearly four decades, as a successful columnist and author.
