"People always ask me if I'm like Blanche. And I say, Well, Blanche was an oversexed, self-involved, man-killing, vain Southern belle from Atlanta--and I'm not from Atlanta!" Rue McClanahan, perhaps best known for her Golden Girls role, shares her personal story in a witty memoir that is every bit as colorful as the characters she plays. From her arrival in New York with little money to her name, to her time studying with theater legend Uta Hagen, to her first television role on All in the Family, to The Golden Girls years and beyond, Rue chronicles her life in Hollywood--and all the men (five big ones) and adventures that happened along the way. Now happily married to her soul mate, Rue is proof that many things can and do get better with age--and that, if she keeps her wits about her, even a small-town girl can make it big.--From publisher description.
