Synopsis:

“WARNING TO READERS:

The Author of This Book is Kind of Crazy, Kind of Delusional, and All Kinds of Hilarious

Whether she’s driving a limo for former Family Ties star Justine Bateman, dancing in the dark for a rarely seen Bob Dylan music video, or stalking a bachelor reject from TVs Love Connection, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is kind of a big deal at least in her own mind. Smart, screwy, and scathingly funny, her tell-all essays capture every cringe-worthy moment of her kind-of famous life. From bombing as a stand-up comic for born-again Christians, to winging it as a singing waitress in an Italian restaurant, to posting open letters to Angelina Jolie and David Hasselhoff, this unstoppable L.A. transplant refuses to give up on her dreams, no matter how ill-advised and shows us a side of Hollywood better kept hidden. When it comes to funny women unplugged and unleashed they dont get any wilder than Stefanie Wilder-Taylor….”

        1. YES! That’s exactly what I was thinking! She’s a stand-up comedian so she’s definitely funny but the stories she decided to share in this book were just not quite book-worthy, in my opinion.
