Is it me? Or does it seem like with a year, to 2-3 years after someone famous dies someone finds a “secret” diary they kept, a hidden “unpublished” manuscript of some kind, a “unrecorded” song, or a “undiscovered” tell all memoir?
Then there are the nannies, personal chef’s, gardeners, butlers, personal assistants, personal assistants to the personal assistants, shoe shiners, trash taker outers, cat wranglers, dog walkers, garden hose security detail, food getters, chia pet mentors, pet monkeys, body image coaches, and personal scrap book therapists who also have a tendency to want to cash in, have their 15 minutes of fame, and write their own version of events that no one can prove or disprove.
This is how movies on the Life Time network with Joanna Kerns with titles like “All the chia pets she ever needed”, “Romancing the garden hose”, “Heaven’s shoe shiner”, and “Poor little pet money girl” get started. Add a guest appearance from Wilford Brimley, or Betty White as the wise grand-person and then you can get the Oprah seal of approval.
Its been 4 years since Michael Jackson died and I am still convinced Bubbles the chimp is chomping at the bit to write his own tell all book. I can only hope for Joanna Kern’s sake she is busy with another project because I have bad feeling who might be cast as bubbles in the Life Time movie adaptation.
