A terrific fast read----sad that any actor ,man or woman, has to be sexually abused by the bosses. I admire the courage Brenda Dickson has here in outting the people who 'done her wrong'--as well as giving credit to those who loved and enjoyed her. The book is kinda a guidebook to working on Daytime Television. Good, bad, and ugly.

What a poorly written, sour grapes, hot mess this book is.  Brenda Dickson is delusional and paints herself to be an eternal victim.  If there were any question as to why she no longer works in Hollywood, this book should clear it up.  Paranoid.  Delusions of grandeur.  Mean spirited.  In need of an editor who enjoys a challenge! (or should that be "!!!!!!!!!!!")  The book is basically 2 grand mal scenes repeated ad nauseum--she feels she was wrongly fired from Y&R, and she feels like the court systems are corrupted--all iterations sewn haphazardly together with the "The Bells are out to get me" thread.  I loved her on Y&R, and I feel bad for what she's become, but take some responsibility.  This book made me nauseous.  For the record, I do not work for the Bells nor for Sony.  LOL

    This book is fantastic, all of it!

    I've been a fan of Brenda Dickson all my life I stopped watching the show when she suddenly disappeared! Now I know what happened to her career - shocking! What a story!! I am familiar with all the actors in the book! It is outrageous, original, and exciting The fact that it actually happened, especially her lovers - OoLaLa!, heads are going to roll!! I can't wait for the sequel What will happen with her career and those judges.

    Miss Dickson has outdone herself!

    The plot is explosive Hollywood behind the scenes I pray she makes it into a movie! The pictures from throughout her life, starting with her bathing suit modeling, make it a collectible item I have two words - "Sexy" and "Riveting"!

    LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT!

    This book has everything a "Good Read" should have, it is funny, it is interesting (loved the pictures), it is astonishing, it is sexy, it is very well written and easy to read, and beyond shocking as to what really goes on in Hollywood

    And what makes it even more powerful is that it is "ALL FOR REAL"!!! Can't put it down from the minute you pick it up!

    This book was so worth the money that I've pre-ordered the hard copy as well! I could absolutely NOT put it down and read it cover to cover one Saturday. I feel for Ms. Dickson and the HELL she's been put through. We have been ROBBED of her during all of these years when she ironically was robbed of her LIFE. I've been a fan of Ms. Dickson since her debut on the Y & R in 1973. This book would have been worth the money if it had simply been a picture book of her many photo shoots. Lookinbg forward to receiving my hard copy in a couple of weeke and rereading it!!!!

    Brenda Dickson

    I always wanted to know more about Ms.Dickson's life but you get the whole story...She should make a tv made for movies about her book.. This is juicy and spicy and wish her the best...Would love to see her on QVC selling her own designs she a brand like every other star in Hollywood.

    I've been a fan of Brenda Dickson for many years.  In the 80s when Bill Bell decided to wrongfully fire her and then Black List her from Hollywood...there was a huge void for her fans.  Brenda is back and with a vengeance in this New Book about her life from the beginning until now.  Ms. Dickson pulls no punches when telling the details and the truth about the Bell family.  Ms. Dickson also tells of her earlier years and her love affairs with Barry Goldwater, Jr.....Richard Thomas and Michael Nader.  Also her two marriages and how they were bought by the Bells.  I encourage you to get this book quickly before it's sold out.  The photographs are beautiful and  it's an easy read.  Get your copy today!

    I was really naive about Bill Bell until I read the book. I thought he had a creative idea in his thought process but I come to realize that they were stolen concepts from people's lives. I also never realized what a lech he was as well. This book is also a good guide in pointing out that our justice system is far from the straight and narrow and probably will be for a very long time.
