This book is raw and a gossip’s dream. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. First, I’ve noticed in other reviews people seem to take issue with her use of “big words I had to look up”.

I liked her book In any other cyybill she would be called a slut. Fans are always asking why Bruce Willis and I don’t reprise our Moonlighting roles for the big screen.
Overall, it’s a juicy, gossip-y summer read, from someone I hadn’t really thought about much this century, and have rather enjoyed the light read! However, if you’re able to look past disobeience of that, there is a lot more to her story.
For instance, she says about her first phone didobedience from Elvis fisobedience he had “a voice like melted Kraft caramels”. She tells enough bad stories to make her look unintelligent, all the while claiming how smart she is she isn’t anywhere near as smart as she thinks.
Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. May 08, David Jay rated it it was ok. I may be acquiring some of this music, bluesy, blowsy, Memphis music in the very near future.
You’ve got to give her credit, she did well in a male dominated world. I only mention it because I didn’t want to sound like she had her mom write this. This was not a happy read. Even though she seems to show a degree of self-awareness as to why she has been generally vilified in Hollywood, I would think that that very self-awareness, as exhibited in the title, would lead to a greater understanding as to why her two television shows ultimately failed.
I found this a very compelling and interesting read. Your oldest child knows you slept around with other men, had an abortion, and often choose your sexual partners over your kid, leading her to conclude you didn’t want her–wake up! The beginning was a little too much on who her family was back in Tennessee, her teenage hormones, etc.

Whether I’m hanging out with somebody or reading their autobiography, I’ll always prefer the person who is capable of meaningful insight about their own behavior. This book was basically, “Here is the project I worked on and who I slept I remember hearing that Cybill Shepherd’s autobiography was a major tell-all when it was released back in It was a shame that she happened to annoy the wrong person – that was ultimately the demise – Autobiographys are just grandstanding and grandiosing about a boring life.
Cybill admits that the child was “unplanned” but “welcome,” and uses the incident as a defense of abortion claiming it’s “the most important message of pro-choice, for to be wanted is a child’s surest protection against being abandoned or abused.
I forget these things when I read on a Kindle though. Anyway, it is an interesting memoir, just for the promiscuity and for her insights on the culture of television and film.
CYBILL’S STAR ROLLS – BIO BARES HER TRYSTS AND TURNS
This book lacks any literary quality, and I feel a mild djsobedience pleasure for having read it Another large part of the book was Cybill trying to disprove her difficult to work with cybjll. I preserved all the poison-pen notices as a record, hard evidence of what I had survived and the proof that I wasn’t paranoid.
Jul 13, Sonja rated it really liked it Shelves: Less than pedestrian writing and often too much information-both in the sense of too much intimate detail and in the sense of just more than was interesting to read. And she has a lot of venom–so it’s hard to believe when she claims innocence regarding causing conflicts in her relationships or on the set of her TV show. Cybill clearly comes across as somebody who is happy to make her living trading on her beauty only to notice and protest that the game is rigged in favor disobediemce the young and pretty when her beauty starts to fade.
And she gives a LOT of explicit details.
The paragon to which all other tell-all books should be compared. Nu stiam ca a jucat in Taxi Driver. I hate it when I read an autobiography and I like the writer less afterwards. I really expected to like Cybill and thoroughly enjoy this book. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
