Lest we forget, there were two other contemporaneous parties to the complex parentage saga Mia Farrow has hinted at — and they’re both raising a skeptical eyebrow.

The Desert Sun of Palm Springs, Calif. asked Frank Sinatra’s widow, Barbara about Farrow’s insinuation in Vanity Fair that Ol’ Blue Eyes may have fathered her 25-year-old son Ronan decades after her divorce from him. “I can’t hardly believe that,” said Barbara, who was married to Sinatra from 1976 until his death in 1998. “It’s just a bunch of junk. There’s always junk written — lies that aren’t true.” She also noted that Frank left nothing to Ronan (whom her stepdaughter Nancy said was considered a member of the family) in his will.

Meanwhile, a rep for  Woody Allen — Mia Farrow’s partner for 12 years and Ronan’s presumed dad until now — told AP that the claim “is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment.”
