Funny, witty... yet odd at times.
on April 29, 2009
I've always liked Kathie Lee, but I was a bit surprised by this book. While I enjoyed the funny Cassidy and Cody stories when they were little, I was surprised by some of the odd things she choose to write about. Some of her language was a bit of surprise to me, since I know she is spiritual and her brother is a minister. Maybe that was to sell more books, I'm not sure.
At times I felt that she will never be happy with her body or getting older. (She brings those up often)
She calls her Mom by her first name, but yet her Dad was always called Daddy. I found that a bit odd. But then again I thought the title of the book was a bit odd also.
I did like the quick short chapters making this book a fast read. It was almost written like a blog or a diary, as sometimes she mentions where she is writing it. Some were witty and well written, yet other stories were just down right weird. I guess we all have our good days and bad.
Overall though I think she gave it her best shot. I admire her charitable causes and enjoy her with Hoda on the Today Show.
(In small doses that is... mostly just the chat session in the beginning and not everyday either.)
