I don't get why she had to write this book. Why air dirty laundry? Most of the book is about her mother being drunk. She doesn't cover much about her own life (2 marriages, etc.). No mention yet of having to make 2 billion commercials for money (toothpaste, la-z-boy furniture, eyelash medication, etc.)

Its appalling how she describes her Mother's last moments. This really is a "Daughter Dearest" kind of book. She seems so high and mighty for a second rate B movie actress. She is resentful and demeaning. I was growing tired of her "disses" of other more famous people. Best Seller my foot!!

Even when you think you do, you really do not know much about another person's life until you have walked in that person's shoes. Or read his/her book. And I suggest you read this one. Brooke has done a marvelous job with the book and with her life.
