Description: Cybill Disobedience: How I Survived Beauty Pageants, Elvis, Sex, Bruce Willis, Lies, Marriage, Motherhood, Hollywood, and the Irrepressible Urge to Say What I Think
From the jacket: Few women in the past three decades have lit up the American imagination like Cybill Shepherd. From wholesome beauty queen to saucy cover girl, from heartbreaking movie star (The Last Picture Show) to one of television's most beloved comediennes (Moonlighting and Cybill), she has imbued each of her roles--right down to her current passions as devoted mother of three, champion of women's issues, and sultry cabaret singer--with an indomitable spirit that has made her, at fifty, a female icon to an entire generation. Now in her much-anticipated memoir, she tells her remarkable story with humor, pathos, and more highlights than her famously blond hair. Cybill has absorbed the lessons of Southern womanhood, including the whispered message about sex: Wait until you're married, then you won't enjoy it, and certainly never speak of it. She gleefully disobeyed these and other rules of decorum in a career laced with controversy, featuring unforgettable cameos by Martin Scorsese, Peter Bogdanovich, Orson Welles, Robert De Niro, and Jeff Bridges. Whether stepping on Elvis's blue suede shoes or going toe-to-toe with Bruce Willis, Cybill has never held anything back, and it's all in Cybill Disobedience, including:
» the night a network executive tried to barter thirteen episodes for a horizontal tour of Cybill's bedroom
» why she'll never be invited back to Ryan O'Neal's beach house or Marlon Brando's island
» the time she greeted David Letterman in nothing but a towel
» the real reason two of television's most popular and acclaimed series died premature deaths
» how she made Richard Nixon blush for the first and only time in his life
Author: Cybill Shepherd with Aimee Lee Ball
Condition: Good, I'd say. This is a former library book and, as such, has a couple of rubber stamps on the first few pages, a sticker on the dust jacket, and short pieces of tape on the outside of the covers. The dust jacket is a bit wrinkled and a number of pages have mild creases.
