OK, so I got what I deserved reading this book.  When you read a “tell all” book written by a famous actress, you should expect the strange.  Spelling writes about what it’s like to raise children in the limelight.  She herself longed for, and never got, a “normal” childhood.  Now she’s trying to create an idyllic normal childhood for her children.  Someone should tell her that if you want “normal,” maybe you should cancel the reality show being filmed in your house.  Maybe you shouldn’t let your best friend (she calls him her “gay husband!”) sleep in your bed when your real husband is out of town.  Maybe you don’t need to spend an entire chapter documenting the “normal” Halloween costumes you and your kids wore one year.  Maybe you shouldn’t live in Hollywood.  Maybe you shouldn’t write “tell all” books!
