I have heard that "money" from this book will be donated to CASA - not "any money." I don't believe the percentage was mentioned. It's easy to see that could be misleading. I'm happy if any money will be used to stop child abuse - but I don't think "all" of the proceeds will be.
Just clarifying that part.
I have not (yet) read the book. But I did read Mommie Dearest (I actually read it *because of Kate* - maybe two years ago). So I can extrapolate. Based on the way Kate treated Jon *on camera*, I could only guess how she treated small, helpless children behind the scenes.
I was duped - but only for about 3 episodes. Then I was annoyed, and then I was curious, and then I googled, and then I read a lot of stuff online. But yes, of course, her whole act was designed to dupe people.
I'm still dumbfounded that she would document it all, though.
