Sylvester Stallone Grieves The Loss Of His Mom, Famed Astrologer and GLOW Promoter Jackie Stallone

Sylvester Stallone's mom Jackie, famed celebrity astrologer and former GLOW promoter but her proudest role was as mother, died at age 98.

Sylvester Stallone is grieving the loss of his mother, Jacqueline “Jackie” Stallone who was known in her own right as a celebrity astrologer, GLOW promoter, and even a castmate on UK’s Big Brother. But her most important role was as mother to her four children.

While the Stallone family was blessed to have her in their lives for such a long time, there now is a sudden void. 

Remembering Jackie: Trapeze Artist, Psychic, Astrologer, GLOW Promoter, Wife, Mom

Jackie Stallone was an eccentric person.

In her younger years, Jackie performed as a trapeze artist in a circus and also a chorus girl in a nightclub. She was the first wife of n hairdresser, polo enthusiast, and Army veteran Frank Stallone Sr.

While she stayed out of the spotlight during son Sly’s rise to fame as “Rocky”, her quirky personality helped her land a role as a wrestling promoter with GLOW in the 1980’s. The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling were so culturally iconic that Netflix eventually brought GLOW back as a series.

By the 90’s, Jackie became famous in her own right as a psychic and astrologer to the stars. Sylvester Stallone’s mom had her own psychic hotline, published astrology books, and even appeared on various mainstream shows.

The celebrity astrologer was seen on Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, David Letterman, and Howard Stern’s shows.

This morning my brothers and I lost our mother Jackie Stallone . She was the mother to four children, Tommy, Sylvester, Frankie and my late sister Toni Ann. She was a remarkable woman working out everyday full of spunk and fearless . She died in her sleep as she had wished. It was hard not to like her, she was very eccentric and flamboyant person. She was born on November 29 th 1921 in Washington DC ,she lived through prohibition , the depression and World War II . I would talk to her for hours about the 20’s 30’s and 40’s. It was a history lesson. Her mind was as sharp as a razor till the day she died. She never wore a mask a true revolutionary gal . I guess I’m drowning my emotions in tears and to much vino. But when you’ve known someone for 70 yrs it tough and sad. She had seven grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren . My brother Sylvester took care of her like a Queen for all of her life. I will never be able to call my mom again or have her yell at me why I never got married . But we all loved her and her sprit to survive and prevail . I’ll miss you always mommy. @officialslystallone
