Susan is the most gracious woman in daytime.

Therefore I will not be buying this syrupy autobiography.

(And you just KNOW that Susan can be a bitch from hell in real life- I don't care what anyone says, but this ultimately readable side of her personality will inevitably stay hidden

Now Kim Zimmer's autobiography??? I will buy 10 copies!

Susan won't dish about SMG, sadly.

But if she did, I'd like to think it would go something like this:

...and then an interesting thing happened: Head writer Megan McTavish decided to give Erica another daughter -- but this offspring would be the result of a terrifying rape Erica had endured on the night of her fourteenth birthday. Judy Blye Wilson ended up casting a totally unknown actress named Sarah Michelle Gellar. No one on the set had heard of her; but then again, no one heard of me when I started. I had high hopes for her.... until she walked into the rehearsal hall!

I wonder how many ghost writers went into the writing of this book.

I've heard Agnes Nixon's got some experience in ghost writing... :ph34r:

Exactly. I wish her luck, as I said, but the writing is on the wall...

Wonder if she'll mention anything about how she really felt about the unabortion storyline. And please, none of this "it's the genius of Agnes Nixon to create a story with ties to history" crap that she spewed during the original SMG Kendall storyline in the early 90s. She kept her mouth shut during the whole Josh train wreck. Would love to know how she truly felt about that story, in terms of it reflecting a trend in inane, shocker storytelling that has come to grip daytime, and also in terms of it totally negating the show's place in daytime television history as having the first character to have a legal abortion. That story was profoundly damaging in so many ways, I'd love to get her take on it.

The only comment she ever made about Josh was that she was surprised, because she'd thought he was the product of stolen eggs. I too wonder what her real feelings were on it. If she's truly fine with it, so be it. But sometimes, silences speaks louder than words.

Remember Agnes's reaction...she thought it was "an interesting idea" or some nonsense along those lines. Though someone obviously had a gun to her head LOL, she lost points with me on that one. Privately she must've been seething, considering the fact that it was a groundbreaking storyline and that she essentially trained Megan and unleashed her on the show. Lucci also always plays the party line, and I'm not really sure why. I understand her trying to be classy and gracious, but there's a way to sound off without coming off as crass and Zimmer-ish. Slezak has voiced her opinion without sacrificing class. Not sure why Lucci isn't willing to do the same.

I agree with you on that one. I can't possible imagine (knowing how much Susan treasures the character of Erica Kane) that she was thrilled about it. Unless her Republican political views played a role in how she felt? She is a republican is she not?

I hope not...AMC is like one of the most liberal soaps in daytime history. I remember reading years ago some speculation that she might be fiscally conservative but socially liberal.

Yes, Susan Lucci is a Republican. But she's a Republican like Judge Judy is a Republican. A common sense Republican if you will. Lucci's a class act all the way. Her book will be dead boring because she isn't doing to dish the dirt. All we can hope for are nice pictures and an interesting dedication and acknowledgements section.
