(Newser) – Frank Sinatra was known for his handsome looks, and apparently there were quite a few showers behind those looks. "He was a guy who took about 12 showers a day," widow Barbara Sinatra tells ABC News. "I mean, he was neat. And he always smelled of lavender." Because of that, he signed his love notes to her "Charlie Neat," she reveals in her new memoir Lady Blue Eyes, which reflects on their 22-year marriage.
