9780071408196: Hollywood Divas : The Good, The Bad, and The Fabulous

A tantalizing peek behind Hollywood's most hard-tohandle leading ladies

From the birth of the silver screen, "It Girls" laid down a sequined trail of self-indulgence and scandalous bad behavior. The stars in this exclusive sorority are both loved and loathed by the press, the fans, and even by each other. Bette Davis once said of Joan Crawford, "I wouldn't sit on her toilet!" Crawford and Davis raised the bar for the women who followed them into Diva-dom. Hollywood Divas traces that glittering path­­from legendary icons to today's most high-maintenance celebrities of film and TV.

Includes such stars as:

  • Gloria Swanson
  • Joan Crawford
  • Judy Garland
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Cher
  • Madonna
  • Julia Roberts
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Britney Spears

Bestselling showbiz author James Robert Parish delivers an eye-popping behind-thescenes peek into the wild private lives of 70 rampaging bad girls of Hollywood.

From the Back Cover:

Tantalizing tales about Hollywood's most demanding leading ladies

Which slapstick redhead reduced Joan "Mommie Dearest" Crawford to tears? What tragic songbird secretly carried vodka to her ambulance as she was carted off on a stretcher? Can you name the blond prima donna who went on a shopping spree so wild that she bought a whole town? These are but a few of the high jinks of Hollywood's favorite "It Girls," whose overdrive to personal and career excess has earned them the rank of diva.

From Marilyn Monroe to Madonna, Zsa Zsa Gabor to J. Lo, substance-abusing Drew Barrymore to her regal but tipsy great-aunt Ethel, Hollywood chronicler James Robert Parish reveals all the exciting details in Hollywood Divas. This photo-filled volume delivers an eye-popping, backstage peek into the wild private lives and cutthroat careers of 70 rampaging bad girls of Hollywood, assembled here for the first time and guaranteed to titillate you with shocking tales of:

  • Unrestrained lust
  • Drug addiction
  • Alcoholism
  • Hushed-up pregnancies
  • Out-of-control tantrums
  • And just plain bratty and brazen behavior

A must-have for every pop-culture fanatic, Hollywood Divas promises to tantalize you with juicy tidbits and saucy scandals that earned each of these devilish darlings the title of Diva.
