cubill Quinn, Medicine Woman all disappeared the same year. I read the book and discover, ok, this person let’s say Cybill may in fact be smart and funny and politically aware, but WOW, she is an incredible narcissist and I find it shocking that she choose to write a book about herself and be so honest and so lacking in self awareness about what a dysfunctional and unpleasant person she seems to be. Mar 20, Paul Baker rated it liked it Shelves: While the real reasons for the show’s dsiobedience were never made public, I was accused of professional paranoia and megalomania, of being, as Lady Caroline Lamb famously said of Lord Byron, “mad, bad and dangerous to know.
She shares the good, the bad, and the ugly – about herself, and everyone else. The paragon to which all other tell-all books should be compared. Not everyone she worked with on or off camera gets away lightly, but there is no nastiness and nothing that sounds too outrageous to be true. Love her or hate her Interesting moments were reading about her fling with Elvis, friendships with Hollywood heavyweights like Orson Wells and Stella Adler, the ups and downs of the acting scene, her rivalvry with Christine Baranski.
I have deliberately chosen to say “sounds like”, because I can of course not really tell how much honesty there is in an autobiography by someone I do not personally know. It is clear from this book that Cybill disobedienfe not and does not live a “morally clean” life by the standards that I adhere too.
I do appreciatre that she does not go into lurid detail, however, so that I did not feel that I needed to stop reading her cybil. But I put this aside as she was honest about her involvement and she was pretty young at the time.
And the Cybill show did not go gently. Read that as a woman who doesn’t mind standing up for what she believes in, and you have a big problem in old boys school hollywood. Overall a decent read Late in the book she inserts some “lessons” learned from therapy, but they don’t seem to go very deep and they certainly don’t permeate the book.
I was really disappointed. I think people have a problem with women acknowledging that they’re Beautiful, and certainly with them being powerful and sexual- and thats were the bad reviews come from.
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 don’t think I’d want to work with either Cybill or Roseanne, but I know who I’d rather have a drink with and who is capable of a much more insightful and interesting account of their own life.

The ones she thinks stabbed her in the back. Oct 27, Tabitha Ormiston-Smith rated it did not like it.
The worst part of the book is that she tries to use her life as a role model for women’s liberation, yet in truth she’s a complete hypocrite. I admire her frankness while being put off by her total self-absorption. You’d think I were getting paid Perhaps keep it to yourself. dlsobedience
Dec 12, Madelon rated it it was amazing. I was ready to bring this down a star for multiple spelling and grammatical errors, which tend to drive me insane while reading, but it occurred to me that those errors may only be in the Kindle version I was reading, dizobedience I will leave this at Instead, it started with sisobedience blow-by-blow of Ms Shepherd’s teenage backseat fumblings and progressed to the main part of the book which was chiefly concerned with her congratulating herself on wrecking people’s marriages.
Cyblll are just grandstanding and grandiosing about a boring life. Cybill Shepherd is a woman I have always admired because of her willingness to call a spade a spade and not sugar coat it. The problem the writer had is that those three things are pretty much the story of Shepherd’s life. I also think that dragging a person’s name into a book, completely irrelevantly to the main subject, just so as to make some scurrilous allegation about the person, especially when he is dead and can’t retaliate, is plain tacky.
She did well getting out of there. Shepherd’s response should have been to mourn that she wasn’t communicating that she cared for her kid and to change her vagabond ways.

Jan 23, Mariana rated it it was amazing Shelves: But I would have liked more disobedifnce on the world and craft of film and television, less childhood memories, and less detail about her sexual choices. Why are these people spared being named in her book where others are not? She was successful and I’m guessing she did have to stand her ground a lot.
