You won't regret reading this! Oh and I forgot to mention Adrienne managed to have all this success without falling victim to being sexually harassed to get jobs, without drugs, and without alcohol.

I enjoyed this book written by Adrienne Barbeau

Written by young Adrienne Barbeau January 5, 1960: Excerpt from ninth grade term paper entitled To Be or Not to Be: Acting as a Vocation. Corny as this may sound, I’ve wanted to act ever since as far back as I can remember. I’ve had to act to get attention, and I’ve never thought of myself as anything else. For that matter, neither has anyone else. I enjoyed this book written by Adrienne Barbeau. I have always been a fan of hers and she has always seemed to be a down to earth person.

Adrienne Barbeau never set out to be a sex symbol and she never planned on giving birth to twins when she was 51 but both those stories and a lot more are detailed in this witty, revealing memoir. From her early years as one of the first Go-Go girls in New York ('No one said Mafia out loud in those days. There was always the fear you wouldn't live to say anything else. ) to starring on Broadway in Grease ('Alexander Cohen swore the only way we'd win a Tony was over his dead body') Adrienne tells tales about her two hit television series (Maude and Carnivale), her.

Adrienne Barbeau never set out to be a sex symbol and she never intended to become the poster girl for women over 50 having babies, but both those stories and a lot more are detailed in this memoir. She covers her early years in New York ("No one said Mafia out loud in those days. ), to starring on Broadway in Grease.

Adrienne Barbeau's first book is a wonderful testament to a life lived. When reading this book, I was reminded of being lost on occasion. In THERE ARE WORSE THINGS I COULD DO, the reader, along with Adrienne, takes a journey. Good, bad or indifferent she propels her readers to LIVE. Memoirs are always tough, and Barbeau nailed it! Even if I did not know her voice, from the many films, plays and TV shows she has been a part of, her written voice comes through so clearly. It is simultaneously kind, comic and sad without ever being maudlin. Barbeau reminds us that when we are lost we seek acceptance, regardless of what that acceptance might mean.

No other voice in Hollywood can you imagine as Creepshow’s Billie growling, Get out of the way, Henry, or I swear to God you’ll be wearing your balls for earrings. Twelve-year-old Barbeau entrusted her journal with a secret: she must become an actress.

Hurray for Adrienne Barbeau. I have always been a fan of her work and wondered why she was not first choice for a part in a lot of things and now I know. Her honesty and wit shine in this book and I hope she continues to write.
Her spirituality parallels mine and I hope she is blessed many times over in her life.
Her book caught me by surprise a beautiful little surprise...

Adrienne Barbeau shares her life with us. She talks about her career covering her Broadway performances, her early days as a go to cancer and waitress in various nightclubs, her television role on Maude, and she even takes us through her journey becoming a heroine in action and horror movies despite only ever watching one horror movie herself. She shares her insecurities, her life as she goes through different types of therapy, her personal relationships, her business relationships, and motherhood.

I thoroughly and honestly enjoyed reading this book straight through. Adrienne shared her entire life, the good the bad the ugly and even the mundane. She talked about being on Broadway, about working on a TV series with veteran actors and actresses, and about the horror movies she did and why she chose them. She wrote about her marriages, her children, how she juggled an acting career and motherhood. She shares much personal growth. While she didn't realize it at the time, she is smart, strong, talented, and wise and has been since as early as 9 th grade when she wrote a paper about choosing acting as a vocation. She tells it like it is and proves that just because you are a famous star, acting isn't always glamorous, pretty, or easy. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is familiar with Adrienne Barbeau, has self-confidence issues, or thinks things have to happen according to some imaginary schedule. You won't regret reading this! Oh and I forgot to mention Adrienne managed to have all this success without falling victim to being sexually harassed to get jobs, without drugs, and without alcohol. Kudos to her!!!!

I really only remember Ms. Barbeau from Maude, and even then only in syndicated reruns because I was too young to watch it when it first aired. I never saw any of her movies, as horror is not my thing. But from what I did know of her, I liked, so I was excited to read this book.

It was *meh*. I thought it was a bit short; she could have fleshed out parts of her life better. She also comes across as a bit naïve, in fact too naïve to have made it as far as she did, at least in the beginning. I also wish I got to learn about her more as a person and not as an actress. That could have helped beef up the book a lot.

Would I recommend this book to others? Maybe, if they were to get it as a free download on their Kindle or check it out at their local library. Otherwise, I don't think buying it would be a wise investment.

This wasn't a terribly interesting book. I liked Adrienne Barbeau from Maude but wasn't impressed much with her life story. She isn't afraid to share of herself but I found book boring.

I enjoyed the " Behind the camera's viewpoint from a
Seasoned actress . "
There is little doubt in Adrienne's mind that her " Claim to fame " is her generous breast which she mentions often
Throughout the book, therefore I think it would be appropriate for her to include a photo of her unclothed famous Boobs.

My husband has always been a fan of Adrienne Barbeau, thus my finding myself wanting to know more about her. This is probably an unfair review as I'm only half way through the book but find it difficult to read. The author's writing clearly shows she's not a writer per se but, hey, it's her life and let her tell it her way!

It was fun to read a first-person account from a star I'd always known of, but knew nothing about. She's an interesting woman with a warm, genuine voice and a great story to tell. Because she never quite fit the dolly-bird celebrity mold, she had to work hard to make her way through roles in TV, cult movies, and some real stinker projects to keep doing what she loves. All with good grace and humor. A fun read from an interesting woman.
I enjoyed this book written by Adrienne Barbeau. I have always been a fan of hers and she has always seemed to be a down to earth person. This book confirms she has a wonderful sense of humor and is well grounded as well. I recommend this book and am interested in reading her other books.
