Celebrity Book Sales and Fails

Dear Sillies,

   If only Hollywood knew that not everyone can and should write. Put those gold studded pens down, people. Leave the writing to us lowly types. We got this.
   So yeah, I've some books you must avoid - some reviews, some personal snark, lots of well wishes.

Here's The Story
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! You shouldn't have!
Her mispronunciation of "exacerbated" as "exasperated" is only one of the recording's unintentionally uproarious howlers. McCormick has embraced the wretched excesses of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs...that is, until she meets Jesus. And I mean she literally meets him. McCormick describes a very real and physical encounter with the Son of God, whom she says knocked her to the ground and then helped her back up off the sidewalk Did she get up saying "My nose! My nose! My nose! Oh, . . . It's YOU. You're sooo dreamy!"To that, He responded, "Sorry, girlfriend. I was watching your show and something suddenly came up."?


Inside Out: A Memoir by Demi Moore

I am sick to the core that you chose to share such private and personal information about your relationship with Ashton. Completely inappropriate.She needed better advice on what to include and a ghostwriter (No pun intended.)

  1. Is there anything we don't already know about Demi Moore at this point?

  2. The picture of Maureen McCormick makes her look like is popping out of a coffee cup. I wonder if she sings, "Drop kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Posts of Life." Gimme Moore needs to stop...everything, including the leeches. As for Elton, he has a wee bit of the narcissism spilling over.

    1. That's a great summary of these three so called authors, Birgit. Thank you.
      PS You'd think Maureen would've dyed her roots for that photo, right?

  3. Sigh. Each and every one of these celebrities undoubtedly was paid to produce their work. Which I really, really wish was true of 'real' writers.

    1. I know, EC. We real writers are the ones who deserve compensation. It's an unjust world, that's for certain.

  4. It is as if we needed any details about celebrities. Standing in line at the grocery gives me enough time to read the front page. Oh those poor people. Life is so rough and tough.

    1. I know, Susan. I get a lot of "news" that way - like Jennifer Aniston's 57th pregnancy. Must be so hard to be so popular and filthy rich.

      Thanks for chiming in.

  5. I'll skip Demi's TMI, but I'd like to read Elton's. He seems like he'd be the best sort of friend- kinda like a Robyn with man parts. :)

    1. To Elton's credit, he got a ton of 5-star reviews. But I still won't read his book, because I trust the substantive negative reviews more than the "Love him" ones.

      Aw, thanks for comparing me. That's a high compliment. I saw him and Billy Joel in concert years ago. What a remarkable combination - probably the best performance I've seen.

      Enjoy.

  6. I embraced the wretched excesses of cigarettes once upon a time too, back in my wild, hedonistic, out-of-control days of youth. Jesus did diddly squat to cure my addiction though.

    1. That's cuz you're not Marcia Brady, Debra. Were you, Jesus would've happily felt you up. I mean, leant a hand.

  7. And yet they still make millions off them. 50 pages of toilet training, a hobo Jesus, and all. lol

    1. Right? Oy - 50 pages. That's enough to keep an reader in diapers for a lifetime.

      Cheers, Pat.

  8. I just read this early this am, and I'm slow on the uptake. Ghostwriter....!!!!....had to do a double think...good one!

    1. Yeah, that's pretty brilliant. I had to post that one.

      Thanks, Joanne.
      Stay well.

  9. Toilet training? Things I didn't need to know.

    1. Yet there was consensus that readers wanted to know about his talents - does he even realize he's a prodigy? What inspired his songs? None of that - but we can learn about his toileting. Stick to your music, Sir Elton.

  10. That's funny! Of course we would all want to know how Elton John was toilet trained. Oy Vey!

    1. Haha. Yes, Sherry, Oy Vey! Thank you for that.
      Be well.

  11. So what is a good celebrity read?

    1. Good question, Bathwater.
      I haven't come across one for adults yet. But Jamie Lee Curtis writes very warm loving books for children. I'll keep searching.

  12. I do like Elton but his huge ego has been well documented. Saw him a month ago in concert. Pretty amazing that he's been going for over 50 years. Yes it's not right that people reveal details of their relationships. Its just one opinion. There's something to be said for biographies rather than auto, that are perhaps less biased.
    Sorry I have not been commenting on your blog as for some reason I am unable to post comments via the PC only the phone which is more tricky for me. I still read some though. Hope you're well. Love to you Robyn. Xo

    1. Thank you, Anthony. I miss you and keep in my thoughts. I really hope things are calming down, that life and hope continue for you and your communities. I also hope your not-so-little gem slows down on the growing up process. You're a precious duo. Love you.

    1. Sure. Thanks, TiM.
      Please don't judge my lack of fashion sense, though. As long as it can manage chocolate stains or smudges, I'll wear it. Cheers. Welcome to this silly tribe.

    1. I'm doubtful of that too, Sage. You read works by real authors.

  15. Musically, Demi Moore was named in the middle of the hemidemisemiquaver--a 15 second note. She has extended herself far beyond that Worholian calculation of general fame. I admire and respect her work beyond that limitation.

    1. Oh, Geo, my dear friend, you manage to make me guffaw heartily in the most unique of ways. I have no idea what any of the above means, or if it means anything at all, yet I appreciate you. Love and gratitude.

    1. Sweetheart, please, please, please, do NOT read this novel. Not if "this novel" means any of the ones I pointed to in my post. But if "this novel" means Woman on the Verge of Paradise, yes. Read, read, read it to your heart's content. It's a good one! You will love it. Thank you.

  22. I think I'll pass on all of these. Perhaps, they would make better use of their time by sticking with acting, singing, and songwriting.
