Enhance your purchase
Who wouldn’t want to read about celebrities behind the facade, in their dressing rooms, in the wings? What are they really like?
In STARS IN THEIR UNDERWEAR Diana Eden, dancer, actress, and costume designer, pulls back the curtain on stage and screen personalities such as Carol Burnett, Debra Messing, George Clooney, Betty White, Dixie Carter, Thomas Haden Church, Kaley Cuoco, and many more. She shares her experiences from the heart of numerous history-making events: the Inauguration of President Lyndon Johnson, the Diana Ross concert in Central Park, the MGM Fire of 1980, and appearances in two iconic films The Producers and Valley of the Dolls.
An assistant to famed designer Bob Mackie, Eden launched her own costume career designing TV series and films for stars Kaley Cuoco, Alyson Hannigan, Shelley Long, Melissa Gilbert, Tony Danza, and Lea Thompson.
As a special bonus for soap opera fans, there are chapters with behind-the-scenes stories and photos from Santa Barbara and Passions.

When you watch TV or go to the movies, you take for granted the clothing and costumes the stars are wearing. The outfits are just as important in telling the story as the actors themselves. Did you ever wonder how much work was involved, and who was that person in charge of making sure every stitch was perfect on sometimes hundreds of people at the same time? Diana Eden is that person. She tells a fascinating story about where she started and how she became an award-winning designer, working and traveling with hundreds of eccentric stars and their sometimes unrealistic expectations. She had a gift of calming reason and would put them at ease while they are standing in their underwear. I got so excited reading about the details of her projects that I was continually searching YouTube and IMBd to see her designs in motion, including Diana Ross and Reba McIntyre. And there on IMDb was Diana’s profile, too!
I am now writing my memoir, so I read every memoir I can get my hands on. This one was special. This one is so utterly different from any other ‘career’ memoir. What a breath of fresh air! There are movie and TV stars in there for everybody. I learned not only about her personal story but also about writing a memoir that will keep the reader turning the pages. Whom will she be dressing next?
At the end of the book, I learned that the author, too, sat on a mountaintop, discussing careers, and missed opportunities with one of the biggest stars in Hollywood! "Commonality of our experiences gives me comfort," she said. "And life is good for both of us!"
And so much info what it was like being in New York City and then Hollywood and all the great entertainers who crossed our paths both as viewers and participants. Diana tells the story of being a dancer on Broadway and in Hollywood and her transition to being a costumer and designer. Very entertaining and informative……it’s saying that I’m posting as music eater….it’s MUSICBEATER!!!
