A Little Bit Wicked

Book:  A Little Bit Wicked
Author: Kristin Chenoweth with Joni Rodgers

You might know her as a Tony Award Winning Broadway star, who originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the smash musical "WICKED" & won a Tony for 1999's "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". Or you may recognize her from starring roles on TV - The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, Seasame Street... Or maybe you say her sexy spread in FHM Magazine?  Or her appearance on Pat Robertson's The 700 Club?  Kristin is a wonderful collection of contradictions - but everyone who's ever met her remembers her as the little girl with the big voice.  At four foot eleven, Kristin Chenoweth is an immense talent in a petite but powerful package.


First Line:  "I face myself in the full-length mirror, stability in one hand, sex in the other"

I adore Kirstin Chenoweth... everything about her.  Her voice is like an angel, she always seem like Ms. Perky in every interview I've ever seen her on, & who doesnt love a girl that can make you believe she's really Glinda, floating in a bubble?  Not to mention, she totally rocks every time she's on GLEE & how did you not love her on Pushing Daisies?  (I'm still bitter the show got canceled... bitter...)

I love an autobiography anyways, but I especially loved reading the life of this lady.  She is exactly what I expected her to be.... charming, funny, talented & full of love for her family & friends.

I also learned more about her... I never realized she was adopted.  I never knew she was in a serious on/off relationship with Aaron Sorkin (aka Mr.Writer).  I never knew she was shunned from Women of Faith because of her love for people... (that part made me very sad & disappointed in fellow Christians)....

.... I do love most of all that she always keeps her faith & her relationship with God close to her & to who she is.  One of my favorite pages of the book, she writes the questions she wants to ask God when she gets there.  My favorite question she asks, "Are you proud of me?" .... that thought from her speaks tons of who she is... adorable

The book sort of jumps from current to past in weird ways... making it a little odd to read at times.  I did enjoy the book though... not sure if its because I love Kristin or if it was a good book... I do know, I'd love to be Kristin's friend. 

My Rating:  4 skeins

Last Line:  Life's too short. I'm not.
