    • We are born alone, we live alone and we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we are not alone. Orson Welles O.k I love celebrity sexposes. I particularly like them when they involve outing male celebrities. If I were to examine this closely, I would find issues of both self-validation and ‘gotcha’ at the root of this appreciation. I love when Names are named and I can say to myself, “I knew it. This is one of my least attractive qua [...]


    • One can only imagine how any of Merv Griffin's older female fans would react to picking up this book! The Merv depicted in it is 180 degrees from the charming, cuddly, "safe" TV persona he projected for all those years on his talk show(s.) The book is good at relating the course of Griffin's career from big band boy singer to wannabe movie star to radio and TV host and finally to talk show icon and wealthy production and real estate kingpin.Where the books falters (yet simultaneously captivates, [...]


    • Either I missed his "outing" in the 90s or didn't think it was important. Lots of gay celebrity gossip, who did what with/to whom where and when. If I didn't like it does that make me homophobic? If I say I liked it, does that mean I have homosexual tendencies? Does it really matter if some think everyone has the possibility, thus there are "no homosexual people, only homosexual acts?" (Gore Vidal). Answers: I don't care, I don't care, and why should I care? Perhaps a little outrage might make t [...]


    • I somehow feel like I ought to be quiet and keep secret the fact that I am reading this book, BUT I am and I find it fascinating. People seeking FAME and notoriety GET JUST THAT in public life. People KNOW, and people TELL what they know. I don't see how this is any different from reading about Oscar Wilde or any other well- known homosexual and getting a glimpse into their lives. I think what is astounding is how many celebrities are mentioned here. There's reviews and comments on with discuss [...]


    • Not a bad book. It's well written and can be interesting more than once. Like all bios, no one will every really know the full truth. And there were a lot of things mentioned here that made me wonder. Do I believe everything in the book (the Desi Arnaz scene)? No way. Do I believe everything in the book could have happened? Definitely. Hollywood (and Washington D.C.) has a long history of covering up anything LGBT related, at the expense of others. It still happens to this day. And it's still of [...]


    • I was hoping for gossipy trash, and this book could have delivered, but its vanity publication lacked close editing. The book is a bloated 500+ pages, breathlessly imparting every detail and supposed encounter or indiscretion with equal weight, making none of it enjoyable. I gave up after the 40-page first chapter. Kitty Kelley this is not. I wanted to hang on for the talk show years and some fabulous gossip, but I just couldn't keep trudging through.


    • Wow-----------I knew Merv led a gay lifestyle, but I had no idea how many of Hollywood's stars he was involved with. He was so successful as a business executive and TV show creator and kept his private life really quiet. This blows the lid off of his personal life. He was way out there. Very eye opening as to how many of the most famous actors in Hollywood were gay or bisexual. The reader will be amazrd!!!


    • This book seemed to be nothing but story after story of different homosexual incidents that Merv had.I could care less if he was gay I was looking for more information about is rise to the top of the talk show circuit and how he created his fortune.This information may have been somewhere in the book but I gave up about half way through.


    • This book was so unreal with the details of every conversation & every event that happened, too much!!! I can only read half of it because the play by play only brought me to 1954 and the torture of reading anymore was unbearable. Total bummer.



    • yea, I read it. And it is sooooo juicy! You will learn a lot, things you wanted to know. and things you maybe wish you could forget!





    • Fascinating. Get the lowdown on every celebrity this Republican conservative blew, and only about 25% of them were "gay."


    • Fun readBeing GAY myself, and of the era 40-50's I found this veryinteresting concerning the stars who were Bi or homosexual and/or did what they did to become stars! Recommended A++
