I DO enjoy the many reviews that the Hymans have penned themselves or had their flock write. Forget the scathing reviews, Jeremy, and GET A JOB.
I always thought MOMMIE DEAREST needed to be taken with a grain of salt; some of Christina Crawford's stories smell like fish to me and the publication of her book so soon after being publicly and humiliatingly disinherited by her mother seemed a bit too serendipitous for comfort. But whatever the truth was, at least Christina Crawford managed to paint a vivid picture of an extremely abusive control freak who used her adopted children for publicity and then shipped them off to boarding school when she had no further use for them, and beating them mercilessly on the occasions when they were at home.
B D Hyman's attempt at a similar "exposé" is, in a word, laughable. For starters, she was not adopted: she was the only child Bette Davis gave birth to.Read more ›
