If you’re in New York and have a chance to see Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words, run, don’t walk. Celebrities like SNLers Kristen Wiig and Rachel Dratch, along with Sherri Shepherd and Ryan Reynolds (yum!) read straight out of celebrity autobiographies (like Suzanne Sommers, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Debbie Reynolds, Eddie Fisher) and it is beyond words. Because it is in their own words. In their exact words. Learn that even Debbie Reynolds believes that her former BFF Elizabeth Taylor deserves a lover — even if that means losing her own husband, Eddie Fisher, to the grand dame. The self-adulation is bananas, and the current celebs do a brilliant job with the comedic timing (Rachel Dratch’s “eye-acting” alone deserves some kind of award).
