From the Back Cover
All the dirt on Tinseltown - 100 years of sex, suicide, sudden death, robbery, murder and mayhem
From the 1920s to Hollywood's Golden Age in the 1960s and right up to the present day, get the low-down on La-La Land, behind the scenes. Times may change, but people, it seems, don't.
Michelle Morgan draws on fresh archival material to uncover more than 60 Hollywood scandals in intimate detail. Each chapter is a story in itself, a fascinating glimpse into the more sordid side of storied showbiz. The scandals are by turns revealing, tragic, outrageous and even, at times, entertaining, such as when Zsa Zsa Gabor clobbered a policeman.
They include the tragic death of Whitney Houston; the fatal stabbing of Lana Turner's boyfriend; the disappearance of Walter Collins, whose abduction was revisited in the movie Changeling; the sad story of Patricia Douglas, raped at a party for MGM executives, then humiliated in court; the death of starlet Virginia Rappe which resulted in the downfall of comedian Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle; the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split, and many more.See all Product Description

If you like reading about,the Hollywood "set" this is for you.
Older stars as well as new ones,I wonder how they are even
able to stand up,never mind function and learn lines?
While it covers most of the more publicised events from the past it gives a good insight into the more obscure incidents too.
A good read, would recommend it to all movie buffs.
I especially loved all the chapters about early Hollywood, even though I had to Google who most of them were :p
I couldn't put this book down :)
Whether your taste is stars of the silver screen or modern day actresses/actors, this book covers it all.
It's obvious the author has thoroughly done her research, I found myself reading new info on scandals that I thought I already had good knowledge on.
I found due to the chapters, each being a different scandal, it was easy to pick up and put down, which was perfect for travelling etc, mind you I also found myself going through the index to read the chapters that mostly appealed to me first.
Having read all of this authors previous books, I can honestly say I was not disappointed and can not recommend or speak highly enough of it.
Looking forward to whatever the author is planning to pen next.
