Has anyone else read the book "Show Biz Kids"? The main character, Cilla Best is a thinly veiled portrayal of Liza. It's scandalous, I'm surprised that Liza (and some of the other Candace Bergin, Jane and Peter Fonda and Natalie Cole) don't sue the author, Rick Karlin. He calls it an "homage" to Jackie Collins, I call it trash!

Thank you, it is supposed to be trash! BTW, I love Liza, have been to dozens of her concerts and even met her twice. The character inspired by her is supposed to be a strong confident woman. The entire book is about kids who grew up in screwed up surroundings and how they managed to come out stable human beings.
