Lilia B[edit]

I took this sentence out:

Restaurateur and TV cooking show host Lidia Bastianich, four years younger than Walken, worked at the Walkens' bakery when she was a young teen.[1]

after pondering for several minutes who the heck she was. Was she related to him somehow? Was she his sister? Why is she mentioned in this article? Is every random person who knew Walken as a kid going to be mentioned in the paragraph about his roots and early family life? If someone can clarify why this character is important to Walken, and then make a transition where this information fits in somewhere sensibly, that would be good.--LeValley 19:17, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

In the Christmas 2011 episode of Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations,' Walken and Bastianich appear together in a segment. While Bastianich cooks octopus, she and Walken talk about their youth in the 'hood; Walken made deliveries for his parents' bakery, while Bastianich worked in the bakery itself. There are a couple of photos at this link where you can see Bourdain, Bastianich and Walken together in a kitchen: http://eater.com/archives/2011/12/13/bourdain-holiday.php
I certainly won't claim that Bastianich and Walken were the best of friends in their childhood, but they certainly seemed to know and remember each other, judging from the conversation during the segment. They may be a link to the episode or segment available online; I refer the interested and assiduous reader to said link to draw their own conclusion.

Natalie Wood[edit]

Are there any reliable sources that can give weight to this? Because otherwise I don't think it's relevant for a summary of Christopher Walken's personal life. I'm sure it's important to the Natalie Wood article, but Wikipedia articles are supposed to be a summary of a subject, not a complete exposition of all possible details, and without a source giving weight to that subject being in this article, it seems a bit WP:UNDUE. - SudoGhost 22:42, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

I have since fixed this problem. Stoopsklan (talk) 23:27, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

No, you haven't. A coroner's report doesn't give weight to the material being in this article, and this isn't any new source, it's the same source you inserted before, why would this suddenly make it WP:DUE?. - SudoGhost 23:34, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok! I'm sorry for the inconveince and apologize. I have since found this, [2] and would like your input as soon as possible. Stoopsklan (talk) 01:17, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Do you have the url link to that article? - SudoGhost 01:20, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Except, that wasn't Walken. It was someone doing an impressionKarin Anker (talk) 16:07, 26 April 2012 (UTC).

Good catch on the mistake. But, I have this that does prove Walken was one of the last persons to see Wood. Which should be put in the proper section, 1980's. [3], http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/natalie-wood-death-christopher-walken-263792 Stoopsklan (talk) 02:05, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
