I'm confused about her celebrity rehab show, I thought at the end of the book she said she was clean and had been clean for 10 years, but I thought I heard on celeb. Well, my Rock and Roll side says she wrote this interesting and insghtful book all by herself; with warmth and a self-deprecating style which constantly evokes sympathy She was an actor who could act but only took it so far; as a singer, well, not exactly an avocation for her.

Through all the turmoil, she arrives on TV in '09, as a still sensuous and charismatic presence, very articulate, and seems to believe in this project. Of course, the shocking, disgraceful, incestuous encounters supercede tales of illegal drug use and generally out of control, decades-long partying. Our pupils dilate as we read the part about this liaisan. But as soon as it's mentioned, it's dropped The lights were off Was more detail needed? In a way, yes. To this reviewer, the real importance of this work is in its' value as a primer in the "underbelly" of the new Hippie Culture of the '60s.
For every story of magic and wonder; of glorious creativity, of busting down social and artistic barriers, there's the criminal-minded, spaced-out, heroin-laced fallout.
