DEE DEE ALWAYS FELT THAT DIONNE WAS TRYING TO STEAL THE LIMELIGHT AWAY FROM HER

FEBRUARY 3, 2022

1969, Dee Dee Warwick’s career looked as though it was about to catch fire and she was being interviewed by a major Hartford newspaper. Dee Dee arranged for the visit to occur at her parent’s home in East Orange, New Jersey.

Dionne and Bill were visiting for Christmas along with their infant son David and Dionne’s mom was out with David doing some Christmas shopping. The Warrick home in East Orange was a quaint two-storey Colonial tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques.

On her best behavior, Dee Dee was serving tea in the dining room to the reporter and they were chit-chatting when there was a thunderous slam upstairs and Dionne began screaming at Bill. Doors were slamming, things were breaking, epithets of the most base nature were flying (Dionne is known to favor the f-word) and Dionne and Bill brought their verbal shouting match downstairs.

Dee Dee apologized to the reporter and went into the kitchen to settle things down between Dionne and Bill, who were still screaming at each other. She got them settled down enough and told Dionne that the interview was going on and asked Dionne why she was always trying to grab attention away from her.

Dionne, apparently shamed, shut up and Dee Dee went back to the interview. The quiet lasted only a few minutes though. Soon Bill and Dionne were hurling insults at each other again. Dee Dee slammed her fists down on the table, apologized to the reporter and remarked that those two “epithet deleted” were going to tear the house down and needed to get the hell away from each other for good

When the shouting match between Bill and Dionne continued, Dee Dee escorted the reporter out of the house, apologizing profusely for the base behavior of her elegant and refined sister and brother-in-law and arranged to continue the interview away from the Warrick home.

Unfortunately for Dee Dee, the interview was never completed. Dee Dee always felt that Dionne was trying to steal the limelight away from her… although they loved each other very much.
