Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Literary assassinations don’t come any more vitriolic than Hollywood Interrupted…fascinating stories and explosive revelations…” (Daily Record, 24 April 2004)

“… capitalises on our base interest in the more scandalous antics of the showbusiness elite…” (Birmingham Post, 17 April 2004)

“…makes for a riveting read.” (Hotdog, May 2004)

"...a wildly... entertaining jeremiad against the entertainment industry...against the perverts, flakes, egomaniacs, junkies, bullies and criminals..." (Rick McGinnis/Metro Toronto)

“…lifts the lid on some of Tinseltown’s weirdest and most notorious celebrities…” (Western Daily Press, 3 April 2004)

"...the industry has never been without a scandal, as this jaw–dropping book reveals..." (Hot Stars, 3 April 2004)

ANY ENTERTAINMENT hack worth his saltpeter understands that he is compromised – effectively neutered from word one . . . in toto, entertainment journalists are disgruntled; they are professionally castrated. And to top it off, these masochists are in turn, castigated and hated by the stars they′ve just fluffed up."
So write Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner in "Hollywood Interrupted." Hmmm . . . interesting point. As a lowly gossip columnist myself, I′d say the authors hit the nail on the head.
This book, which will land on the best–seller list next week, is an unabashedly right–wing, conservative one–note samba on celebrity culture. Is it the truth? Sure – from the authors′ point of view, but with no balance. All stars are the devil here. I can′t say I enjoyed this one; it′s tone is often nasty and even petty – "the aging actress" . . . "the portly actor . . . " But as an antidote to much of what passes for entertainment coverage – or even this column – "Hollywood Interrupted" has appeal and certainly it has shock value. After a while, however, shocks lose impact. Chapter after chapter on those bad people in show biz! And it′s not as if anybody′s going to stop attending the movies, buying records or being fascinated with celebrity just because these writers are able to reveal clay feet under every heavenly Hollywood body. (The New York Post, Liz Smith, March 15th)

Not since Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons have two journalists (Breitbart feeds stories to Internet scandalmonger Matt Drudge and Ebner wrote for Spy) gathered more mean–spirited gossip about celebrities they condemn as sick and depraved. (Publishers Weekly, February 2, 2004)

CELEBRITIES are skewered like shish kabobs in Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s upcoming book, Hollywood Interrupted (Wiley). The veteran journalists air embarrassing anecdotes about everyone from egomaniacal producer Robert Evans to Tinseltown train wreck Courtney Love to fallen power agent Michael Ovitz. The authors disclose a previously unheard 1993 wiretap of Evans chatting with Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss in which Evans seems to be ordering up a 17–year–old girl he calls "the little one." A chapter titled "Heroine: Love Means Never to Have to Say You′re Courtney" was so damning in its details of Love′s many meltdowns that her agents at Vigliano & Associates demanded that it be cut from the book (it wasn′t). The tome also recounts how, after being terrorized by Ovitz′s spoiled b rat childre n, the power agent′s nanny quit and was subsequently blacklisted from working in Hollywood households. (The New York Post, Page Six, February 5, 2004)

Celebrity excess is being skewered in a pointed new book about the alleged bad behavior of some of Tinseltown′s bigger names.
Hollywood Interrupted is the work of writers ∗Mark Ebner∗ and ∗Andrew Breitbart.∗ While writing the book, the authors parted ways with their literary agent, ∗David Vigliano,∗ over a less–than–glowing chapter they penned on another of his clients, ∗Courtney Love.∗
Some examples: ∗Barbra Streisand∗′s ex, ∗Elliott Gould,∗ is criticized as an absent parent.
∗Cher∗ gets praised as "a wonderful mother."
∗Suzanne Hansen,∗ a nanny who worked for power agent ∗Michael Ovitz,∗ claims Ovitz and his wife, ∗Judy,∗ spent so little time together that they communicated via notes sent through the office mail of Ovitz′s Creative Artists Agency, where Judy also worked.
The authors recommend mandatory sterilizations for aspiring celebrities. (Daily News, Rush & Molloy, February 5, 2004)

"The perfect Oscar–Night side dish...Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s Hollywood, Interrupted is a terrific book, both snappy and snappish.... The next best thing to a Los Angeles friend with a nose for juicy gossip. (The Wall Street Journal

"A Hollywood horror–fest. Celebrities are skewered like shish kabobs in Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s... Hollywood, Interrupted." (Page Six, New York Post)

"Entertainment journalism has become a stampede of a–list a∗∗–kissing. The authors of this bracingly impudent expose, however, have declined to pucker up." (Penthouse, February 2004)

"In this juicy Hollywood exposé, a pair of investigative journalists talks to the hired help, including former butlers and nannies, to peer inside the bad behavior of stars like John Travolta, Liz Hurley and Winona Ryder. Shockingly delicious!" (Star magazine, March 1, 2004)

The entertainment industry ...takes a beating in [this] scathing collection of revelations about ... scores of luminous entertainment media personalities. (Fort Worth Star–Telegram)

"This is a fun book!" (Jon Stewart, The Daily Show)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Hollywood, Interrupted is a sometimes frightening, occasionally sad, and frequently hysterical odyssey into the darkest realms of showbiz pathology, the endless stream of meltdowns and flameouts, and the inexplicable behavior on the part of show business personalities.

Charting celebrities from rehab to retox, to jails, cults, institutions, near-death experiences and the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Interrupted takes readers on a surreal field trip into the amoral belly of the entertainment industry. Each chapter — covering topics including warped Hollywood child-rearing, bad medicine, hypocritical political maneuvering and the complicit media — delivers a meticulously researched, interview-infused, attitude heavy dispatch which analyzes and deconstructs the myths created by the celebrities themselves.

Celebrities somehow believe that it's their god-given right to inflict their pathology on the rest of us. Hollywood, Interrupted illustrates how these dysfunctional dilettantes are mad as hell... And we're not going to take it any more.

Not your typical Hollywood gossip book. This one comes from the angle of, "This is how truly screwed up the people who dictate our culture are, and this is why no one should have less influence on us than they do." Written by two people (Breitbart and Ebner) who truly despise Hollywood and for all the right reasons.

What a grotesque look into La-La-Land. How strange, unusual, and foreign to an almost extraterrestrial level our favorite celebrities are. But if they are asked, they'll tell you how to live, and those reporting will give them great platforms to preach their nonsense to. This book really brings Planet Hollywood down to Earth one star at a time.

We think we would want to live in their world, but this book let's me know what a fantasy world they live in and they gradually kill themselves. Why we look up to them and listen to them is baffling to me. They have such a high opinion of themselves, their friends, an vs their own opinions. The public has allowed this.

the intelligentsia on the left coast are more arrogant and pushy than one would imagine. Caution: if you love America and it depresses you to witness the total undermining of morality here, bring a bunch of skankerchiefs because, although informative, it is a sad state of affairs that the know-it-all Hollywood gliteratti have mastered
