Despite her hectic schedule, Hollywood’s new glamour girl always manages to spend time with her daughter, Jayne Marie, 4, product of an early marriage that ended in divorce. In on this particular act are Jayne’s two Persians, Sabrina and Ophelia. Jayne also extends her hospitality to an ordinary alley cat named Romulus, a Chihuahua, a Great Dane, two turtles and a rabbit.
