"GAWD!!!!!! The author, Adrienne Trier-Bienick contacted me when she saw I was reading this...and I have to admit, I read EVERYTHING Tori I can get my hands on (unless is "what was she thinking" in the worst-dressed comments in US magazine) and I said the stupidest comment to her! I said: I'd rather find out what Tori eats on her pancakes in the morning. So....I apologize, as this is NOT a book about what Tori eats!" Oct 14, 2013 11:52PM

Melinda is on page 26 of 169 of Sing Us a Song, Piano Woman: I only found out this book existed a few days ago...I am very eager to get into it...since it is basically a book about me!
