"People always ask me if I'm like Blanche. And I say, 'Well, Blanche was an oversexed, self-involved, man-killing, vain Southern belle from Atlanta--and I'm not from Atlanta!" Rue McClanahan, perhaps best known for her Golden Girls role, shares her personal story in a witty memoir that is every bit as colorful as the characters she plays. From her arrival in New York with little money to her name, to her time studying with theater legend Uta Hagen, to her first television role on All in the Family, to The Golden Girls years and beyond, Rue chronicles her life in Hollywood--and all the men (five big ones) and adventures that happened along the way. Now happily married to her soul mate, Rue is proof that many things can and do get better with age--and that, if she keeps her wits about her, even a small-town girl can make it big.--From publisher description.… (mer)

Funny, insightful, and above all, honest. It's worth a read both as the story of a woman who somehow landed on her feet, and as the story of a seasoned performer with a lot of hilarious behind-the-scenes stories about some of her roles. Golden Girls fans in particular will want to pick this one up. ( )

Rue McClanahan's Emmy Award Acceptance Speech, 1987

Let me preface this by saying that it's deeply satisfying to wake up to a Mooch alert - an email telling you in so many words that a book on your wishlist is now waiting for a new home. I really enjoy Bookmooch and I wish more of the books I wanted were given up by other people. I really urge you to give it a try - I got rid of titles I no longer cared for and I'm receiving books I'm interested in in exchange.

Rue McClanahan, as you may know, is most famous for her role as the scandalous Southern belle Blanche Devereaux in one of my favourite TV shows, The Golden Girls. She passed away last June and there's always something slightly peculiar reading someone else's life after their death. But what a life that was! I found My First Five Husbands... and the Ones Who Got Away to be a truly inspirational account of an ambitious, disarmingly funny woman who did everything from waitressing in her underwear to acting on Broadway. She met lovely people and terrible ones whom she ended up marrying but learned a lot from everyone.
The book is interesting and written in a friendly manner, which I greatly enjoyed. It's more Rue talking to a pal and exchanging gossip than Someone Famous cashing on their fame. Rue worked from day one and never stopped - she says at some point that she saw other people whose ambition in life was to marry into money but her wish had always been to earn it. Her life really deserved its own book - she accomplished so much and did got everything she wanted in the end.
I dreaded her chapter narrating her days filming The Golden Girls, I didn't want my superlative opinion of the show and its stars to be tarnished - while she reveals that the set wasn't the idyllic place I imagined it to be (somehow I thought such wonderful women with such a wonderful script could only have been best friends all along), it remains special and I can now add a very nice anecdote in my collection of Golden Girls gossip - one involving no less than The Men of Blanche's Boudoir, a scrapbook Blanche puts together with nude pics of her lovers that she offers to her housemates and which remains to this day one of my favourite scenes of the series.

I truly enjoyed this book, which was one hell of a ride. Turns out Rue wasn't very different from Blanche, though Blanche got truly lucky in her choice of men. At the beginning of the book, Rue explains that she devised a system to rate her lovers' performance in bed, ranging from A to F. I have a feeling Blanche got a life filled with As. Now let that be something to look forward to ;)

Rose: Is it possible to love two men at the same time?
Blanche (not missing a beat): Set the scene - have we been drinking?

The Golden Girls is one of my favorite shows so I borrowed this from a friend. I read it in a weekend.

One of my favorite quotes from the book is

Eating habits are hard to change, but it can be done, and with some added exercise, you can change your weight, which matters a lot more than your age. Regular sexual activity is excellent exercise. So is lifting weights. It all depends on what's available. Dumbbells are pretty easy to come by, but since many of them are married, I suggest lifting weights.

Now that's funny. ( )

Rue is a class act. Whimsical and entertaining autobiography about her life and, more specifically, her love life.

I learned a lot about her - her theatrical background was most surprising. Can't wait to discuss it! ( )
