I was excited to find that Susan Lucci was narrating her own memoir, that made it more personal and more interesting. But it never came to fruition. I've been an AMC fan from the beginning, and I wanted to hear some of the stories from behind the scenes...what really happened when Dimitri was kicked off the show, what was the conflict with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, how did Lucci feel about having to act out the reversal of Erica's ground-breaking legal abortion decades later? THAT'S the kind of stories I was looking for. Instead we get dull and bubbly, like she's giving any one of a dozen interviews over the years. No introspection, no revelations. Every single person Lucci has ever worked with is portrayed as the Most Talented, Most Generous, Most Wonderful person in the Whole Wide World!!!!!!!!! And Lucci herself comes off as a name-dropping diva, despite her multiple multiple protestations to the contrary. Did you know she was personally responsible for saving the NY theater after 9/11? Ugh.
