It's truly shocking how fascinating this autobiography is. Poor Loni had quite a time of it, even before hooking up with the slap-happy (in the negative sense of the term) Burt Reynolds. I don't remember the specifics, but I seem to recall someone she knows having their mother murdered right in front of them, or something equally pleasant. I don't know, it's been a couple years. I should probably purchase this book.

And she doesn't completely eviscerate Burt, who at the very least doesn't seem to have brutalized her on a daily basis, and in the mid-80s underwent a bad experience on a movie set wherein all the bones in his face were pulverized after being hit with a prop chair that was supposed to have splintered upon contact. I guess if one day you're a sex symbol, and the next day your face is a flappy pink sac of skull powder, you might be entitled to bouts of grumpiness, if not bouts of harming your spouse.
