From Publishers Weekly:

For 35 years, Eileen Fulton has played the scheming Lisa on As the World Turns. Here is her frank and often funny autobiography of her Southern childhood as a minister's daughter, her rise to stardom and a personal life as dramatic as the soap she stars in. Fulton survived six marriages, 52 lovers, death threats from fans and attempts on the part of network executives to "kill" Lisa. Fulton is full of funny anecdotes: for instance, during one live episode, she was locked in an oxygen tent; unable to breathe, she had to wait for a commercial break before crying for help. In addition to her daytime TV job, Fulton also had a lucrative career as a singer. Today she is a businesswoman and still holds her own as Lisa. Although this book will undoubtedly entertain fans, reading it leaves the unsatisfying feeling that Fulton has presented only the surface. Coauthors Athull and Chernikian are freelance writers.

From Library Journal:

Soap opera fans will dote on every word penned by the original "Glamorous Scheming Vixen," whose own story is a little tamer than that of the character she has portrayed on television for over 30 years: Lisa on As the World Turns. With a light touch and more than a bit of humor, Fulton relates a series of anecdotes about her life on and off camera. The early days of live daytime drama are recollected, as are Fulton's forays into stage, screen, and recording. Although candid, this is no tabloid tell-all; those looking for dirt will have to dig elsewhere. Those looking for a mildly amusing account of life on and off the soaps will find it here. Recommended for public libraries where Soap Opera Digest is read.
