After eight years on the air, Desi Arnaz did not love Lucy any more. On screen, they were dynamite, a comedy pairing more successful than any Hollywood had ever produced. But when the cameras stopped rolling, they fought, screamed and threatened each other more each season. Finally, an argument in Desi's production office turned violent. Lucy hurled a cocktail glass past his head, and Desi demanded a divorce. He moved out that night. After nearly 20 years, America's favorite couple was finished.

I was willing to overlook the silly need to use f##k to make a point but the content is a rehash and not insightful. It comes down to being yourself. That's all folks. Too much about the author's me me me problems. In the book Ms Owen states."my girlfriend dropped me" what,was the point? You have no idea,why??That is hard to believe.
Where there is smoke there is,fire.
I'm sorry about her father's death but having to fly there for the last few days of his life was a sacrafise?
Really. I spent 7 years watching my husband decline in front of me from renal failure. fighting Medicare. dealing with doctors and hospitals etc.. You need to be older to write a book like this one. You are still wet behind the ears. Not much for a mature person to gain in this read.
