They were her constant companions on her journey to fame and fortune as an actress on the US hit series Ally McBeal and Arrested Development. After being outed in a high-profile lesbian relationship, Portia has since embraced her homosexuality and created showbiz history marrying popular talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, as well as beating her eating disorder. This is her story of triumph (with a bit of starving, bingeing, vomiting and lying along the way, but also a lot of laughs).Hide synopsis

This was a surprisingly well-written book. Portia's personal descriptions of her battle with not only gender issues, but also weight and body image, were very poignant. Readers of adolescent ages should probably have adult supervision, as some of the content can be rather confrontive and confusing, but nonetheless, extremely relevant in today's world, where on every magazine cover is someone's battle with weight and sexuality.
