Wentworth takes us through the looking glass and into the wonderland of her life, from a childhood among Washington's elite to a stint in the psych ward they called a New England prep school; days doing L.A. sketch comedy to a series of spectacularly failed loves that eventually led her to Mr. Right. Constant throughout is her mother, Muffie-- a flawlessly elegant yet firm, no-nonsense force of nature and pure WASP convictions.
Chelsea Handler meets Nora Ephron in this uproarious memoir from the acclaimed actress and comedian.

Cute read but somewhat disjointed in places, as though the author feels above maintaining the reader's interest.

She has absolutely NO self-knowledge. She actually claims to have gone up "middle class" even though her family was very wealthy including a house on Embassy row in DC and a teenage summer aboard in Europe! She is delusional about her self. I stopped reading after she started in about how her mother would take spa days at the Plaza hotel to revive her flagging spirit. Shouldn't we all!! Gross!!

This is an entertaining book about the story of Ali Wentworth, who is the wife of the ABC News anchor, George Stephanopoulos. It encompasses her hilarious experiences from when she was just a child to when she was in relationships with people. Her sarcasm throughout the book adds to the humor and will leave you doubled over with laughter.
