In this candid and memorable autobiography Sheila reveals how she picked up the pieces. For a time she starred as Alice Kramden on "The Honeymooners" with Jackie Gleason, and eventually launched "The Sheila MacRae Show," a syndicated TV talk show. Hollywood Mother of the Year is peppered throughout with Sheila's compelling remembrances involving the stars of Hollywood--from Shirley Jones to Frank Sinatra (who became Sheila's lover)--and an unforgettable scene in which President Lyndon Johnson tried to bed her in the White House. And throughout this remarkable story of a woman striving to find herself, there is always Gordon MacRae--her first, true love--and the touching, moving end of his life.
