    "I don't know what she accomplished with this book"

    [I wrote this review for my goodreads account]

    11/1: So I've always wondered why there were two mom's on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and didn't realize that there was drama associated with the switch. Apparently Janet Hubert was railroaded out of Hollywood because of the split up. She certainly has no love lost for Will Smith. I definitely preferred the show when she was the mom, and it will be interesting to hear her take on why she was removed. I'm listening to this as an audiobook where she's the narrator and it's excellent so far. She reads it exactly as I remember her acting. I'm definitely enjoying it so far.

    11/4: So I'm sorry I used one of my free audible credits on this book. It would have been better borrowed from the library. It's hard to critique someone's memoir - it's kind of like saying "I don't like your life", but the person's life is what it is. :-) But by the end of the book I was tired. She whined a lot, I felt. She was indeed "done wrong" by Smith and the studio - if you accept her version of the story - and a lot of awful things happened to her as a result of getting kicked off the show, but some of it was the result of crazy decisions she made. And she kept flip-flopping throughout the book - she hated what the cast did to her, but she's always wondering what they're doing. Really? The book is also a bit disjointed in places as she jumps back and forth between stories, but she said she wanted to tell the story "in her own words" without any editors or publishers telling her what to say.

    Anyway, I'm she was able to get her life back under control, but this book didn't really do anything for me. You kind of want memoirs to inspire you or at least make you think. She confirms that Hollywood is a crazy place, but we already knew that. :-)

    I think you can safely skip this one. There's also quite a bit of swearing in it, if that bothers you.

    "You'll Want to Listen Twice!"

    A "must read" for anyone who has survived personal crisis. Janet Hubert puts her life on the line and pulls no punches. This is not a "tell all" gossipy account for revenge, but a very personal story of endurance, survival, love, and remarkable strength. Janet Hubert's voice (in reading and song) makes it a compelling listen!
