The beloved Hollywood star and New York Times best-selling author of Unsinkable continues her intimate chat with fans in this entertaining collection of anecdotes, stories, jokes, and random musings from a woman who has seen it all - and done most of it.
From her acclaimed performances to her headline-making divorce from Eddie Fisher, from raising a famous daughter to hitting the road with a successful one-woman show, Debbie Reynolds has been in the spotlight for decades. She's met presidents, performed for the queen of England, and partied with kings. A show business icon, she continues to sing and dance - and can drop more names than Andy Cohen.
In this fabulous personal tour, she recalls wonderful moments with the greats of the entertainment world - Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Phyllis Diller, and many, many more - sharing stories that shed new light on her life and career and the glittering world of Hollywood then and now. Debbie has plenty to tell - and in Make 'Em Laugh, she dishes it in the warm, down-to-earth voice her fans adore.
Debbie shares memories of late-night pals and some of the greatest comedians of all time, stories from the big screen and small, and tales of marriage, motherhood, and children. Combining her wicked sense of humor and appealing charm, she reveals the personal side of show business and fame in funny, poignant, and delightful reminiscences. Nothing is off limits: Debbie talks about her sex life, her family drama - and even shares a few secret recipes.
As irresistible as the woman at its heart, this collection shows the consummate skill of a beloved entertainer who truly knows how to make 'em laugh.

Love the book just wish it had been Debbie.
Yes. There is always something about hearing a book that makes it better. If they reader is good at what they are doing.
Hearing all the funny things she did in life and hearing about all the movie stars she knows/knew.
What she said to the reporters about shooting her son Todd.
Very much so and I have listen to it twice now.
I love the book and I love Debbie. I just wish she could have read the book herself. Judith did a good job and you could hear Debbie in her in many ways.

no way to judge, I didn't like her book so probably audio version of this was better.
Mae West, I don't think Ms Ivey's version of Debbie's imitation was as good as hers.
I think the only thing that seemed at all recent or topical was her receipt of the SAG award and I liked hearing about the commotion happening around her while she was violently ill.
I think Ms Ivey does her justice but her intonation comes off as a little sly and southern.
