In My Life on a Diet, Academy Award–nominated and Emmy Award–winning writer and actress Renée Taylor looks back on a life full of memorable roles in Hollywood and on Broadway, and just as many fad diets. A self-described “diet junkie” who used to think that if she ate like star, she just might look and live like one, Renée dishes out juicy anecdotes about, and weight loss tips from, Hollywood legends such as Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand. She also shares hilarious and poignant stories about Joseph Bologna, her partner in work and life for 52 years. In telling about her highs and lows—on and off the scale—this comedy legend proves that the ability to laugh gets you through it all.
