Same Gripe...Different Day

Sigh. More celebrity book deals. Check it out.

Condi Rice...a three book deal worth $2.5 million.

Diane Keaton...$2-plus million

But here's the killer...Kathy Griffin, $2 million.

Kathy Griffin?

Sorry, I had to remove my previous comment because it made no freakin' sense. Let's try this again:

Don't be so quick to scratch your head - the woman has branded herself successfully as an underdog, a D-list celeb, a small fish in the big Hollywood pond. And, as much as she dishes on the stage and screen, I'll bet her fans will still line up to read about her personal life, especially why her marriage broke up.

I know I'd read her book before I'd read Condi Rice or Diane Keaton. At least she makes me laugh.

THERE - I'd like to thank my editor for making this comment possible.

Unbelievable--New York publishers don't have a clue.

It’s disheartening that it’s the celebrity that makes a book an instant success and not the quality of the contents.

If Madonna could write a children's book and get it published... Need I say more?

The saddest part is that these advances are actually pretty conservative for celebrity books. It burns my biscuits, too.
