I'm Just Sayin' by Kim Zimmer

From Amazon - As the notorious Reva Shayne on the daytime television drama Guiding Light, Kim Zimmer has portrayed a vixen, a manic-depressive, an Amish woman, a time traveler, a Civil War belle, a talk show host, a cancer survivor, a loving mother, and a devoted wife. Now, in this rollicking, heartfelt and surprising memoir, Zimmer delves into her experiences as a daytime diva.

I admit I used to watch Guiding Light years ago as well as Days of Our Lives and Young and the Restless.  Reva was and is a fabulous actress and I completely enjoyed the candidness in her book, I'm Just Sayin'! 

I find it funny how a character in a soap can die so many times, get married, be cloned and much more.  It  says a lot for the actress who can continue to do her job without batting an eye. Not only does Kim talk about Reva and other characters and celebrities on the show over the years, but she also talks candidly about her personal life.

What I really enjoyed was the glimpse into the backstage and how soap operas were shot and how the actors and actresses interacted with one another off-camera.  A sparkle in her eye, from the times I recall when I watched the show, Kim just puts it out there like it is, leaving no stone unturned.  She talks about how she let her character be put in the situations she was in because Kim didn't speak up, she talks about the budget cuts, and the love of her life, A.C. Weary. 

If you enjoyed watching Guiding Light or want to more about soaps, pick up Kim's new book, I'm Just Sayin'! With behind the scene tidbits and an upclose look at Kim's personal life, fans won't want to miss out! I found the book to be very engaging and entertaining.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
