Authors of the New York Time Best Seller "You'll Never Make Love In This Town Again" "The Frankel's.... have relied on the schmooze factor to break into and maintain a toehold in the business." Hollywood Reporter "I wish I had your creativity, but what do you expect from Middle America!" Dr. Phillip McGraw Sharing their Hollywood memoirs with candor and humor, Jennie and Terrie prove once again they have their pens on the pulse of the Hollywood scene with their legendary twinography ME TWO TWINS in HOLLYWOOD! The Twins collectively spent dozens of years in Hollywood performing comedy, writing, producing, agenting, managing and serving on the Board of Directors of industry organizations. In this all true tell all they share their personal experiences with famous and influential people, including: Garth Brooks, Dr. Phil, David Letterman, Joey Bishop, Barbra Streisand and others. Jennie and Terrie also reveal intimate experiences with Hollywood insiders who took advantage of the hopes and dreams of young nubile women. These men in positions of power found it easy to cash in on the dreams of ingénues in search of stardom as well as those young innocents willing to do whatever it would take to close a deal and ascend the Hollywood corporate ladder. From their first taste of Hollywood to the last dance on their Tinseltown Dance Card, the Twins' personal and sometimes shocking experiences are heartwarming, heartbreaking, surprisingly funny and oh yes, sizzling hot! The twins have known the best and the worst of the people who grease, fuel and power the Hollywood Star-Making Machine. And yes, there was indeed an abuse of power in Hollywood that they witnessed and knew first hand in the '70s, '80s and '90s, during a freewheeling time when sexual attractions were openly expressed and often pursued––unlike today, where a mere flirtatious glance can be perceived to cross the line.

Me Two Twins in Hollywood based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Me Two Twins in Hollywood is an easy and fun read! These are experiences the twins had with moguls in Hollywood, long before the Me To movement had a name. The book features highlights of their decades of struggle, survival and success, as they climbed the corporate ladder - beginning with performing at The Comedy Store to eventually becoming Hollywood insiders. They also share their personal experiences with stars during pivotal moments in their careers. There are lots of photos in the book. I was surprised at how funny the book is, as well as touching. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Hollywood from an insiders point of view... make that TWO insiders points of view.
