The only thing I love more than a good celebrity memoir is a celebrity memoir audiobook. I buy them on iTunes or sometimes on CD so I can listen to them in the car or have a hard copy for the rest of my life (Barbara Walters’ Audition is something you want to hold on to) and I fall asleep to them almost every night. Creepy? Sure. I’ve listened to dozens of them (most recently Tina Fey’s Bossypants), but my favorite would have to be Tori Spelling’s sTORI Telling.
I recently had my heart broken when a friend drove home for me that basically none of these memoirs are actually written by the celebrities (I am very naive about such things), but regardless, every single second of sTORI Telling felt incredibly real to me. From the tales of her childhood at the Spelling Mansion to her explanation of how she wound up hooking up with and later marrying her husband Dean, who was totally married when they met, it’s truly riveting stuff.
Plus, when Tori reads each line with the slightly disappointed or overly excited tone that she recited all of her lines on 90210 with, you really get the sense that this woman has experienced zero personal growth over the last twenty years, which is sad but fascinating. That’s really not supposed to be as mean as it reads, I promise.
Y’all got any celebrity memoir audiobooks to recommend to me?
