"Her mother and grandmother both had syphilis"

Dragging her relatives, probably dead by now, through the mud is just disgusting.

Common story--fame comes early and destroys childhood. Glad that my kid is normal and not talented in this way.

I'm not sure why ex-hollywood stars think we'll all be shocked and intrigued at their former drug use and illicit affairs. I'd be more shocked to read about someone who wasn't involved in that stuff, this story is just trite. There's no purpose in it.
Just like your posts right Alec..

She worked the entire time she was a "child star".

She's retired now.

Marcia Brady is the child star turned adult we've been waiting for. She is the change that we seek.
A light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the bookstore and buy the book of Marcia.

Marcia Brady aka "the 70's Obama" is back and better than ever!

Here's what people are saying about "Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice":

"This is bigger than Kennedy.... This is the New Testament. I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event."

-- Chris Matthews

"We're here to evolve to a higher plane ... she is an evolved leader ...[she] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth."

When I read the story, I knew some horse's behind would say, "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia." Come on, give us a break and find something intelligent to say.

Please! A good portion of Hollywood celebrities still do this so this really isn't anything new, not only that but this was how many years ago.
Hollywood needs to seriously clean up it's image, studios need to tell their clients to either clean up or their out! I can't imagine how they can tolerate celebrities getting caught with their hand in the cookie jar, this is why I don't go see movies anymore. Why support a movie/studio/celebrity who acts the way they do? Clean up and have respect for yourself and then I will consider to have respect for you too.

Another broke, dried up has-been. What's even more amazing, is that a publisher actually funded this piece of wasted prose. NEXT, person in line please! Geez! >:(
