    memories of a jealous background singer, apparently mary was strapped for cash so she has a Book- Rag written to try and portray herself as a victim. She never got over the fact the supremes like any other group wouldn't go on forever.
    After 1969 all the fancy clothes and Top Billing and Top Venues were over. I could've saved my money on this one,
    I've used most of it to line the birdcage

    This Is The Tell-All Tale of The Millenium

    As a long time fan of The Supremes, I was both shocked and extremely interested in this book. Mary Wilson tells what happened behind all of the sequin gowns and the make-up; behind all the smiles and giggles; behind the dream that America (and the world) thought they knew. I recommend this book for anyone who either loves the Supremes or not. Mary, being a founding memeber of the legend, tells just a bit more than the group's present-headliner, Diana Ross, did in her well writen autobiography. You'll also be amazed when you get the info on Mary Wilson's domestic life (i.e. her abusive marriage; her long battle with Motown Records for ownership of the 'Supremes' name).This is truly a legend, as was the music of The Supremes, and it would be smart to buy it now before it disappears.

    Excellent!

    I thought Mary Wilson did a GREAT job on writing her experiences as a Dreamgirl, to Supreme, to solo. She is a true survivor. She expresses her love for Diana, her memories for Florence and others she lost. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the story of the Supremes.
