Sneak Peek into Kim Zimmer's tell-all memoir: I'm Just Sayin'!

TV Guide’s Michael Logan today haa a very exclusive sneak peek at Kim Zimmer (Echo, OLTL) new memoir, I’m Just Sayin’ due out in August! After his read-through he pointed out several fantastic moments that Zimmer brings to light in her astounding and legendary daytime career. And for those who were wondering if Kim would dive into what happened in the final years of Guiding Light? It appears she does!  Here is an excerpt from the TV Guide preview:

“Then there are the gut-punches, with Zimmer finally revealing how hard it was for her to handle exec producer Ellen Wheeler’s mismanagement of Guiding Light, how she wishes the soap had been canceled two years sooner, and how she often performed drunk to get herself through the last difficult months of the show. Zimmer does not hide the DUI arrest and the mandatory AA meetings that forced her to reexamine her life and clean up her act.

This is a tough though never bitter or bitchy memoir. In fact, Zimmer shows uncharacteristic restraint while still delivering the goods in a scorchingly fabulous way. There’s a lot of love and passion and grace here, too. Always an open book, she is hardest on herself.”

Right now fans can pre-order Zimmer’s tell-all at Amazon.com! Make sure to get you copy.

I’m looking forward to this book. I’m a Kim Zimmer fan. She tells it like she sees it. I didn’t know about the Oprah Winfrey incident though. Interesting. I was no fan of Guiding Light’s final executive producer. I thought she was horrible….so, I can’t wait to read her take on Ms. Wheeler.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
