Comment Box: Celebrity Memoir Redux

By Liz Kelly
Comment Box

Months ago (maybe it was last summer??) you had a blog entry about memoirs or autobiographies by celebrities that you would recommend. Do you know where I can find that link? -- Zenya, via e-mail

Here you go, Zenya: Stars By the Book. Though since that post was written back in December 2006, we've been subjected treated to first person accounts from Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx, "90210" alumna and reality TV regular Tori Spelling and self-banished "View-ster" Rosie O'Donnell. And although I'm not sure I'd recommend it, "View" doyenne Barbara Walters is the latest entrant on the celebrity memoir scene with this week's release of "Auditions." Here's what The Post's Howard Kurtz had to say about Walters's revelations (including her admission that she helped Star Jones cover for weight loss surgery and her own affair with a married Senator):

"What emerges from the book is a tenacious 78-year-old woman who, despite occasional mistakes, has managed to overcome every setback in achieving her exalted status as veteran journalist, celebrity interviewer and world-class yenta."

Still hungry? Mark your calendar for 2009 tomes from one-time Wham frontman George Michael and 15-year-old Miley Cyrus's chronicle of her life so far (which, judging by the past week or so, could be more interesting than previously thought).

Comment of the Week (like you didn't see this one coming 10 miles away)
"Yo fatty, carm down." -- An anonymous tweener drops in to lay down the law during last week's Miley Cyrus throwdown.

Creative Captioning Winners: Quick Draw McGraw


We asked you to caption this fey photo of country crooner Tim McGraw. As usual, you came through like gangbusters, making us all feel good like a cowboy (or girl) should. Without further ado, the five funniest captions:


I'm too sexy for my scent. -- Em


Country singer Tim McGraw reaches for another sample of the chief raw ingredient in his namesake cologne. -- byoolin


McGraw Cologne: Who says cowboys can't be metrosexuals? -- bahston


Just one drop behind the ear will render even the toughest music critic completely immobile for up to 24 hours. -- td


"Does the bottle make my but look big?" -- EricS

And, a bonus caption:

Yo fatty, carm down and try this here McGraw. -- jes
