Memoirs by funny, hardworking women are the best. They just are. There are a lot of parts to Kristin Chenoweth that I’m not so much a fan of: so much Jesus, a super strange speaking voice, she’s made more money from being short than I have. But I cannot deny that she is hardworking, funny, and positive.
Her memoir is the story of her life thus far. We get stories of her upbringing in Oklahoma, her adventures through college (did not know she had a Masters), and eventually on to New York and Hollywood. Interspersed are stories of her love life, the most interesting of which is her on-again/off-again love with Aaron Sorkin. Who knew? I would have never put those two together which just goes to show you how little I know either of them. I thought it was really interesting that (at least in the audio book), Sorkin tells the story of meeting Chenoweth from his point of view. As in, he recorded the story for her audio book when they were in an off-again status. Interesting, right?
It was a read that kept my attention and went by quickly but didn’t change my life (accept for Sorkoweth; that fascinates me). I would say it is a good listen but I don’t think I would have taken the time to sit down to read it.
