Book Review: Never Say Never by Ricki Lake


I have been on an autobiography kick lately! Trying to clear out my book shelf. The book thing is bending (Note: Do not buy cheap Wal-Mart book shelves…and then pack them to the hilt. Oops.)

I found Ricki Lake's book on the sale rack at TJ Maxx.

  1. I absolutely loved The Business of Birth and used to watch her show when I was a kid! I had no idea that she'd written a book. I'll have to look for this one!

  3. She's had quite the life, hasn't she? As a teenager, I had a crush on her. I had no idea of the struggles she's encountered along the way.
