The list author says: "There's a guilty pleasure that goes with reading about what really happens behind the headlines of the rich, famous and infamous. But, nowadays there's an endless supply of folks - whether because they have an axe to grind, want to make a quick buck, or just get their story told - that are willing to tell-all about those they've come in contact with. Here's a list of some of those tell-all memoirs that provide an entertaining, informative, guilty pleasure."
"All his castmates went off to build their careers - so what's the poor "Screech" to do but write a tell-all? Well, he's got a lot to tell including accusation of a rape by Mario Lopez, plenty of drug-use and sleeping around run amok on the cast of the kids show."
"This one is often referred to as the "Hollywood Chain Massacre", because of how strongly it attacks the Hollywood elite like Steven Spielberg. Julia, who was the first woman to win a best picture oscar for co-producing "The Sting", had a meteoric rise to fame that fell apart nearly as rapidly. In this book she tells all on everyone."
"Cloris Leachman has reached an age where her dirt can be more easily told. She tells it about the Kennedy's, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn - just to name a few, and she does it in her "say anything, terribly entertaining way.". For the younger crowd, she also dishes dirt about her experience on Dancing with the Stars."
