Portia de Rossi weighed only 82 pounds when she collapsed on the set of the Hollywood film in which she was playing her first leading role. This should have been the culmination of all her years of hard work - first as a child model in Australia, then as a cast member of one of the hottest shows on American television. On the outside she was thin and blond, glamorous and successful. On the inside, she was literally dying.

Such a wonderful story. You can't even begin to imagine what Portia went through! So brave to be able to relive it. It was a joy to listen to this audio book, however heartbreaking at times!
