Kenny Kingston: Psychic to the (Mostly Dead) Stars

Posted on Posted in Bizarre Personalities

Kenny Kingston was a pseudo-celebrity known for his wild claims of speaking to dead celebrities. He often claimed to have been the personal psychic for U.S. Presidents Harry Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower, Marilyn MonroeJohn WayneGreta Garbo, Sally Struthers, Lilly Tomlin, Carol Burnett, Josephine Baker, Drincess Diana, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Hugh Jackman. He explained that his psychic super powers derived from him being “born to a 7th daughter of a 7th daughter,” which supposedly had mystical meaning. He said that his grandmother had developed his psychic prowess by teaching him to read tea leaves when he was four years old. After he mastered that, his mother, Kaye, taught him “psychometry”or how to feel and interpret “psychic vibrations from objects” at the age of seven.  He also claimed that when he was seven, screen legend Mae West became his teacher by showing him how to become clairaudio.

Obviously, Kingston was an entertainer more than he was a true psychic. In fact, most of his claims are hard to believe. In 1975, a Los Angeles Times reporter commented to Kingston that he didn’t look old enough to have known some of these people in their prime. Kingston responded, “Anything is possible—if you try hard enough.”

When asked to comment on skeptics who accused him of fakery, he replied, “I just don’t dignify it. Why dignify somebody who doesn’t know what they’re talking about?”

So what’s the real story behind Kenny Kingston? Who was he and how did he become Hollywood’s most popular psychic?

Kenny Kingston (probably not his real name) was born in Buffalo, New York, on February 15, 1927. Because there’s no information about his father, other than Kingston once claiming that he was a P.R. man named “Jack,” details of the psychic’s early life remain a mystery. Kingston rarely discussed his father in newspaper interviews, which leads one to believe that he never had a relationship with his father, or at the very least, not a good one. However, he was close to his socialite mother, Kaye Kingston, who supported his endeavors. Later in life, Kingston referred to her as Catherine Walsh Clark, a name that doesn’t appear in census or death records.

Kingston claimed that he grew up in San Franciso and had served two years as a KP in the military following high school. He also claimed that he served in Italy. If true, his military would have been roughly between 1945-1947. Once again, there are no online records supporting these claims.

Kingston did start out, however, as a struggling producer-director-actor, not as a psychic nor talk show host (as he later claimed). In 1950, he and his mother lived in San Francisco, where he directed a musical version of Cinderella and the Magic Slipper for the Catholic Theater Guild of San Francisco. He was barely 23 when he opened the Kenny Kingston Studio of Drama and Music at 3595 Clay Street in 1951.  He was an ambitious young man determined to make a name for himself in the theatrical world. Not much is known about his early acting school, except that in 1952, his mother walked into a classroom to find one his students, Mrs. Marsha Hillyer, 23, unconscious on the floor in an attempted suicide. Although Hillyer didn’t take enough barbituates to kill herself, she had written five suicide notes speaking of her “unrequited love” for Kingston.

Vying for fame, Kingston convinced San Francisco television station KPIX to let him star as a live-action Pinocchio in a “new series” of adventures, which was broadcasted locally at 6:00 pm in 1952.

San Francisco critic Dwight Newton was not a fan of Kingston nor the show:

This one almost frightened me last week, Kenny Kingston, costumed as “Pinocchio” with a beak long enough to shame an ant eater, jabbered for fifteen minutes in a high pitched scream.

He was surrounded by kiddies who seemed as puzzled as your reporter about what was going on as he kept yelping, “Oh, it’s wonderful! I’m so happy!”

Eventually the purpose of the program sunk through. Kenny was pitching enthusiasm for the purchase of Christmas toys. Enthusiasm? Whew! Wonder how other participating sponsors reacted when he referred to one store as “the best shop in the whole wide world”?

He reached a climatic frenzy when he announced a contest to win “wonderful, wonderful, fabulous toys” by finishing a sentence beginning “I like Pinocchio because…”

Or could it have been, “I don’t like Pinocchio because…” Now there would be something to work on!

 

 

It appears as though Kingston‘s television show did not last long, although he later claimed that it aired for three years — as a talk show. In December 1954,  he was arrested for drunk driving while speeding along El Camino Real.  Afterwards, his acting school began to decline after local theaters turned elsewhere for talent. Hoping to remain relevant, Kingston cast his students in variety skits and he took his troup of students on the road, performing at military basis and hospitals.

 

In 1957, he closed his acting school and he and his mother moved  to Southern California. At the Miles Playhouse in Santa Monica, he directed his Cinderella and the Glass Slipper. He dubbed his variety act the Kenny Kingston Kaperettes and was hired as the drama coach at the Lois and Jeane School of Dance at 6469 Van Nuys Boulevard. In 1959, he opened his own acting school at 16000 Sherman Way in Van Nuys. He primarily worked as a children’s acting coach, charging parents for lessons and the chance for their children to act in his plays. His productions were vanity stage adaptations of Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, The Adventures of Pinocchio and Little Women. Thanks to his mother, whom he lived with, he became acquainted with a number of silent film stars, like Frances Lederer and Vivian Duncan; however, it is not clear how Mrs. Kingston knew them.

Kingston drifted from theater venue to venue, looking for a location to stage his children plays. He briefly served as the Sherman Oaks Playhouse director and produced plays at the Hollywood Cameo Playhouse. In 1964, he converted the back of the Kirkwood Bowl (a bowling alley now called Pinz) into a small upstairs theatrical stage that he called Kenny Kingston‘s Horizon Theatre. It’s location was 12655 Ventura Blvd.

In 1966, he briefly worked for Dorothy Shreve School of Charm and Modeling at 13444 Ventura Blvd. By this time, he was beginning to promote himself as a “producer and director and coach to some of Hollywood’s most famous names,” though there is no proof that he produced celebrity clients.
In 1968, Kingston‘s mother threw a birthday cocktail party for her son at his acting studio on La Cienega. Many socialites and faded movie stars attended. The featured entertainer was the Amazing Creswell, who made predictions for party guests. Edward Everett Horton was in attendance and Mrs. Kingston wore a gold gown designed by Mr. Blackwell. The party (and Creswell) must have made an impression on Kenny Kingston because in January , 1969, Kingston gave a demonstation on “psychometry” at an event called the Hangover Hop at the Ventura Club at 13920 Ventura Blvd. Although it was one of many variety acts on the evening’s program, Kingston‘s psychic act was a hit. Within the next two months, he began to reinvent himself as a “well-known practicing psychic” who performed at private parties around Southern California. He later claimed that he charged $5  a reading.
 (NOTE: Oddly enough, Kingston and Creswell never acknowleged knowing one another, though it is obvious that Kingston patterned his new career after him.)

After a return engagement at the Ventura Club in March of 1969, Kingston fully committed to his new psychic career by conducting an ESP Festival at his Coronet Theatre the following month. This time around, he called himself a “noted international psychic/E.S.P. authority.” By the end of the year, he called himself Dr. Kingston, claiming that he had earned his a doctorate in psychology and divinity studies. He would use his fake doctorate title, off and on, until the late 1970s.

At long last, Kingston had found the fame he sought. He closed his acting studio and never discussed his theatrical past. Beginning in 1970, he began to appear on daytime talk shows where he made Academy Award predictions and offered a positive, uplifting look at the afterlife. He spoke of being friends and a psychic advisor to Marilyn Monroe and James Dean.  He also appeared at parties and fundraisers with other minor celebrities.

Over time, Kingston‘s claims grew increasingly outlandish. By 1971, he began to say that he frequently communicated with the spirits of Clifton Webb, Chief Running Bull and the ghost of his great-grandfather. By 1974, he began to use his mantra “Sweet Spirit” when greeting people. He also became a favorite go-to person for newspaper gossip columnists, who loved the idea that Kingston held pre-Academy Award seances, whereby he would conjure up the spirits of Mae Murray, Erich Von Stroheim, Humphrey Bogart, and the always present Webb to make predictions from the other side.

By 1974, Kingston charged 25-30 people at a time to participate in celebrity seances in his Sherman Oaks home. Those who attended witnessed him conversing with the ghosts of Webb, Betty Grable, Monroe, and other dead celebrities. He also spoke of reincarnation, saying that he had once been “a medical doctor in England, and two lives before that” he had been “torn limb from limb in Florence, Italy.”

Kingston reached his apex in the mid-1970s; however, in 1974-75, he badly damaged his reputation by making numerous predictions that never came true.  By the late 1970s, he struggled to find reporters willing to give him news coverage without mocking him for his past flubs. His career slump also coincided with the slow demise of daytime talk show ratings and the ongoing retirement of his newspaper friends.

HE ‘KEEPS IN TOUCH’
Psychic’s Friendships Never Die
BY JODY JACOBS
THE LOS ANGELES TIMES — Jan. 11, 1974

In the world of parties and high living, no one has quite matched the zest and talent of Elsa Maxwell, who died in 1963. Neither has there been anyone in the theater world to quite match the urbane style of acerbic wit of Clifton Webb who passed into the beyond in 1966. Kenny Kingston knew them both while they were still more or less in their prime. And feels fortunate that he can still “keep in touch.”Kingston, you see, is a “gifted psychic.” It says so in small red shiny type beneath his name on small white calling cards. And for him “all things are possible…and love is the one eternal.” So, as in the past, his friendships with Elsa and Clifton and Marilyn Monroe and many more of the famous who are no longer with us continue.

Nowadays, this happy, tall man with reddish-gold hair lives in a color-drenched (colors are very important in his scheme of things) apartment in Horace Heidt’s Hawaiian Village in Sherman Oaks. That’s where he does his private readings for people like governors – “two of them flew in recently to consult with me…not the governor of California” – and psychiatrists “who park a block away” and political figures “who never come by day.”

The number of politicians who consult him shouldn’t come as no surprise, he says, smiling and settling down on a soft couch that’s vividly patterned. “Abe Lincoln had a clairvoyant living with him at the White House.”

Kingston also is connected with the Church of the Universal Master, which holds services in the Jewish Veteran’s Hall on Ventura Blvd.

His projections into the future are quoted in magazines and put forth on television shows. And Kingston claims his record is pretty good. As supporting testimony, he quotes Miss Maxwell.

The famous party giver for the international jet set often hired him to amaze and entertain her worldly guests. At one Paris party Kingston recalls, “a man asked how accurate I was. She (Maxwell) carried a pad and pencil in her bosom and she kept a record.” That was the night she replied, “Kenny is 86% accurate and he has an 86% sense of humor to go with it….

Meeting With Ike

Kingston has known about his psychic powers since he was 10, in Buffalo where he was born.

“I was going into an English and history exam and I didn’t know the answers,” he said. “A voice came and gave them to me.” Later the voice turned into an apparition – a man. “I asked who he was and he said, ‘Your grandfather, Henry C.’ I never knew him in life, but that’s what he was always called.” Ever since, “My grandfather has been my mentor.”

It took World War II to propel Kingston into the aura of the high and mighty. He met Gen. Dwight Eisenhower in Paris “in a most unusual way. I was assigned to the 85th Infantry and I was in the Officer’s Club reading for the officers when he walked in. Everyone stood up, and I started to, and he said, ‘No, I never disturb the spirits.’” 

(NOTE: The 85th Infantry was never stationed in Paris. The 85th fought in French Morocco and Italy.)

They met again at the St. Francis in San Francisco when “I had a talk show there.” Eisenhower, then President, came through with Gov. Earl Warren. “Eisenhower asked me, ‘Am I being reelected?’ I said, ‘Without a shadow of a doubt.’ He turned to the governor and said, ‘We can call the campaign off.’” Eisenhower, Kingston reports, “had a fantastic memory.”

In the infantry, Kingston was referred to as “a fortune-teller, and they didn’t know what to do with me.” Eventually he was transferred to Special Services and later assigned to accompany Grace Moore, the diva, on her tour.

But before the tour was over, Kingston’s grandfather appeared again, urging him to go home. “Grace said ‘OK, but you have to dine with Clifton (Webb) and Mabel (his mother), who are subleasing my apartment in New York.’” (A month later Kingston learned of Miss Moore’s death in a plane crash. “I was to have been in the seat next to hers.”)

Belief in Fun

That’s how that friendship began. Later, Webb moved to California. So did his psychic friend, and the friendship grew stronger.

Through Webb, he met Marilyn Monroe, and the two are among “my dear spirits” who keep life lively for the psychic. “If their pictures are put away, they don’t move them,” he said. “If they’re out, it’s chaos.”

His memories of Miss Maxwell are lively, too. “Elsa was a wonderful old shoe. If she didn’t like you, you knew it. She and the duchess (of Windsor) feuded about everything, but in the end they were friends. People like her don’t come very often.

“Elsa believed people who gave parties should enjoy themselves more. They should have fun. She always did. She believed that food, liquor and music were not as important as mixing the right people.

“She was a joy and so much fun. I told her once that she ought to be married to share that joy. And she told me that she would never marry because ‘I’m possessive and jealous and if my husband were untrue I would kill him.’”

Before her death, Miss Maxwell was asked by an interviewer to list the most fascinating men she knew. She led off the list with playboy-diplomat Ali Khan and Porfirio Rubirosa, both friends and frequent guests at her parties.

Love Story

Kingston also believes that Miss Maxwell “was a diplomat.” You might say the same about him.

“I learned to forget,” he says, about the time he first met the Duke and Duchess of Windsor (through Elsa Maxwell) and read for them in California and New York and Paris. “He wasn’t a true believer. She is. I asked him where he called home. He said, ‘Home is where my duchess is.’ That to me is a great love story.”

Of the duchess, he says, “Her aura is superb. She’s positive, no dillydallying. She’s a woman who gets what she wants. I always felt England did her a disservice. She gave the duke so many years of happiness and all he asked for her was that she be called Your Highness.

“If I could sum up her philosophy for other women, it is, ‘I never complain. I never explain.’”

About the time he became the psychic to columnists Louella Parsons, Hedda Hopper and Cobina Wright Sr. – all at the same time – he got even more practice in the art of forgetting.

“They loved Hollywood with a great passion. The so-called columnists today don’t have the same touch. I called Louella ‘Your Highness’ and she loved that picture of herself on the throne. Cobina spoke her mind just the way Elsa did. I have a compulsion to see that house of hers. I know Cobina is in it.”

Kingston believes in reincarnation, but also that ‘you choose to come back. You do not have to. And you chose your own parents.”

But before he goes on to that, he still has a few things he’d like to do in this reincarnation.

“More than anything I’d like to do a television show here and do it with one person – Pearl Bailey.” Although they’ve never met, he knows “she’s be the perfect one.”

Then there’s a book he’d like to write. But first, “If you’ll excuse the pun, I would like to get a good ghostwriter.”

Kenny Kingston

In 1978, Kingston released his first book Sweet Spirits  followed by Psychic Kenny Kingston‘s Guide to Health and Happiness in 1984. He earned his living, giving lectures on how to develop psychic ability and hosting private parties. One of his favorite venues at the time was the Amabassador Hotel in Los Angeles. He also contributed to tabloid magazines.

Following Mae West‘s death in 1980, her psychic friend Creswell’s death in 1982 and his own mother’s death around 1984, Kingston began telling people that West had taught him clairaudio when he was 7-9 years old.  He also added other newly deceased stars to his roster of former clients, such as John Wayne and Elvis Presley. Although claims such as these helped resurrect his ailing career, he never regained the same level of fame that he had attained in the early 1970s. He rebranded himself as the “Psychic of the Stars,” which brought him more admirers…and scorn.

 

 

Every time a major celebrity died, he claimed that he had known him or her.  For instance, when Greta Garbo passed away in 1990, Kingston quickly responded that he had first advised her in 1952 and that she had loved watching Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares. Years later, he called her a “parasite” who didn’t pay him for his services.

Kenny Kingston Psychic Hotline

In 1993, Kenny Kingston became the face behind the Kenny Kingston Psychic Hotline, a late night informercial whereby people could receive psychic advise by phone for $2.99 – $3.99 a minute. In 1995, his show became the 7th highest income generating informercial on television. At its zenith, Kingston‘s company employed approximately 400 people. His infomercial/hotline business lasted eight years. Although he did not participate in the phone calls, he was available for a private consultation at $250 per hour. In 1998, he increased his price to $300 per 45 minutes.

Kingston made a lot of money from his infomercials, which afforded him to buy a house and a white Jaguar with a SEERKK license plate. However, cable television quickly became oversatuated with competing psychic hotline informercials. Soon, all psychic hotlines became a national joke. Not only did MADtv lampoon Kingston, but newspaper columnists also joined in the fun by ridiculing his “gnomish” appearance and fake hairpieces. Around this time, Kingston began to complain that he was tired of his “Psychic to the Stars” title, saying that too many people were now calling themselves “dresser of the stars,” “chef to the stars,” “publicist to the stars,” etc.

In keeping with the times, Kingston began to visit haunted locations to report on its ghosts. The following article was published in Los Angeles Magazine in August of 1999 about the ghosts haunting Musso & Frank Grill on Hollywood Blvd.

 

SIGHTINGS: Get an Afterlife
By Joseph Tomkins

It’s just before eight on a Tuesday evening, and the dinner clatter at Musso & Frank Grill is percolating like 80-year-old decaf. Smallish, old waiters whose faces seemed tanned by sconce lighting deliver platters of fried shrimp and corned beef hash to vacationing Nebraskans and off-duty movie grips. The loud party of four near the back just hit another punch line; a burly man wearing an X-Files ball cap asks for more soy sauce. Cashier Ruth McCoy sits happily on her stool like a cherry on a sundae. The place opened in 1919, and the only thing about it that ever changes are the slogans on the tourist T-shirts.

But I’m not here for ambiance — nor is my guest, world-famous psychic Kenny Kingston. As the maitre d’ leads us to one of the swanky red booths in the side dining room, a woman recognizes Kingston and quickly turns her face away, as if trying to shield her mind. But ad hoc readings aren’t on the menu tonight, either. We’ve come to spot celebrities — dead ones. Musso & Frank was once the favorite Hollywood haunts of Golden Age A-listers from Chaplin to Crawford. And, according to Kingston, it still is.

Kingston, as any channel-surfing insomniac will tell you, is mostly known for his Psychic Hotline infomercial, The operation, which he helps oversee but doesn’t own, charges $2.99 a minute and rakes in more than $5 million a month. Kingston says he has been talking to spirits since his childhood in San Francisco, where the ghost of his grandfather helped him study for exams and his mother taught him the technique of psychometry — reading impressions from personal objects. Later, the spiritually endowed Mae West honed his clairaudient listening skills, which he now uses to channel via telephone.

Those gifts, packaged in the diminutive Kingston’s twinkle-eyed, almost elfin brand of mysticism, eventually earned him clients such as Greta Garbo, Harry Truman and a sizable portion of Britain’s royal family. He was the only medium Marilyn Monroe ever consulted, and his book “I Still Talk to…” details his confabs with other famous personalities no longer on “Earthplane,” as he calls it. When not stumping on the paranormal lecture circuit or doing private readings for $300 a pop, Kingston — who now lives in Studio City and refuses to divulge his age — is a fixture on talk-radio and TV. A recent appearance on “The Howie Mandel Show” generated more than 49,000 viewer letters. The first time I met Kingston, he saw my maternal mother hovering above me and warned that my colitis–which I hadn’t told him about–might flare up.

But the visit to Musso & Frank begins with a peep from the spirits. Kingston, whose short, near-white hair is neatly feathered, chatters about an upcoming trip to Paris. I fear the evening will be a flop.

Just then, however, his eyes fix on something over my shoulder and flash with amusement. I follow his gaze to a nearby table, where a handsome young man is scratching the back of his neck, then his nose.

“Know why he’s doing that?” Kingston asks. “Errol Flynn is standing behind him and tickling him with a feather.”

I grill Kingston on the ectoplasmic hows and whys. Does Flynn appear now as he appeared in bodily life? Yes. Does Flynn know that Kingston can see him? Yes. Has Flynn said anything to him? “He says he’s done more for L.A. real estate than anyone,” Kingston says, “since so many homeowners claim Errol Flynn lived there.”

Or maybe just slept there, I can’t help thinking. I tell my brain to shut up before Flynn turns the feather on me.

The swashbuckler isn’t alone. Kingston nods toward a table of four middle-aged men and says Lionel Barrymore is with them. Then he spots Orson Welles and Charles Laughton at the bar. All I can detect is a wide gap amid the living barflies, so I ask about the “Citizen Kane” director’s size in the afterlife. “He’s a large spirit,” Kingston admits. Near Welles, Carole Lombard is dueling with an Earthplane woman for control of a bar stool.

Soon the place is brimming with more late Hollywood greats than the wax museum down the street. Peter Lorre is dining at a booth across the room. Raymond Burr lingers near the restrooms with a thin man Kingston doesn’t recognize. Even Tiny Tim pokes his head through the front door. But gossip columnist Louella Parsons, Kingston says, refused to show up because of her hatred of Welles. (Some old grudges never die.) Meanwhile, Flynn is still at it with the feather.

As the beset young man heads for the restroom scratching his lower back, I ask Kingston if the movie spooks congregate at Musso & Franks every night. “They knew you’d be hear to write about them,” he explains. “They love publicity now as much as they did on Earthplane.”

The waiter arrived with out entrees, and Kingston seems intent on making him drop them. “Do you remember Father John?” he asks.

“Oh, yes,” the waiter says matter-of-factly. “He was the priest where…”

“Father John says hello,” Kingston interrupts. The waiter blanches slightly and hurries away.

Jean Harlow crashes a party at a booth near ours, and Orson Welles quaffs another Bud Eternal Light. Kingston devours a piece of swordfish and dishes up revelations about the few celebs who didn’t show up tonight. James Dean wasn’t driving the Porsche when it crashed — his mechanic was. Madonna’s daughter is the reincarnation of Eva Peron. Howard Hughes is still alive. Elvis isn’t.

By now it’s after 10, and bodies and poltergeists are clearing out. As we make our way to the door, Kingston suspects the spirits have been tampering with the kitchen lights. I stop to inquire with the maître d’. The man smiles and shakes his head politely. No wiring problems. Well, even a master psychic can get a little carried away.

But then I find Kingston near the kitchen entrance talking to a forty something busboy who looks like he could set a table in 15 seconds. “The lights in the kitchen, Kingston says slowly. “Do they flicker on and off sometimes?”

The man nods somberly.

 

Kenny Kingston

After his Psychic Hotline ended around 1997-98, Kingston quickly faded into obscurity. He spent his remaining years making a few public appearances, peddling books and making occasional predictions in newspapers.  By this time, he had become irrelevant and largely forgotten to the newer generation of paranormal fans.

He published his final book “I Still Talk To…” in 2000 and did a small promotional tour. In 2011, he gave his last interview to the Los Angeles Times. When the reporter asked him about the legal problems that had befallen Miss Cleo, one of his psychic phoneline competitors, he replied, “I don’t mean to be unkind about this, but there are so many bad apples roaming.” Throughout the interview, he sounded tired and weary with scarsely a mention of Clifton Webb. In defending his own phoneline, he replied, “I have to live. Everybody has to charge something to navigate.” 

 

Kenny Kingston

Kingston spent his final years with his longtime companion, Valerie Porter.  Then on June 30, 2014, at the age of 87, he quietly passed away at home from heart disease. Although newspapers across the country published his obituary, his legacy was long over. All that he had  left behind was a trail of bad predictions, memorabilia (much of it questionable) and a pair of rose-tinted glasses…

A List of Kenny Kingston’s Predictions over the years:

1971:

  • “I also predict it is safe to smoke in Southern California. The tobacco puts a coating on your lungs to fend off the damages of smog. Nicotine is less dangerous than smog.”

 

  • “I regretfully predict Nancy Reagan will be hospitalized in the next few months suffering from a malady beginning with the letter A.”

 

  • Elizabeth Taylor, who will always have Richard Burton as her true soul mate will become romantically involved with a prominent member of royalty. She should definitely consider marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco.”

  • Donald and Ivanka Trump will reunite.

 

  • Adolph Hitler did not die in his underground bunker. Instead, he worked as an accountant in Austria and passed away at the age of 91.

KINGSTON’S REPORTS ON THE AFTERLIFE OF DEAD CELEBRITIES
