Trisha Goddard is Britain's number-one talk show host. Every day, millions of viewers tune in to her television program to watch ordinary people share their problems, worries, and experiences; she is the nation's favorite confidante. But behind the assured, poised professional is a woman with a remarkable and intriguing past. After years of listening to other people's life stories, Trisha is now ready to tell hers. As a child, Trisha was on the receiving end of violence from her father, a psychiatric nurse; and her teens were scarred by depression and eating disorders. Her real adventures in life began when she left home at 15 to tour in a band. Having tasted freedom, Trisha then became a stewardess for Gulf Air--a job she claims prepared her well for the crowd control she would need to exercise on her television show. Having settled in Australia, she launched her television career and her success as a broadcaster was cemented when she became the first black news anchorwoman on Australian television. In this intimate, no-holds-barred autobiography, Trisha lays bare the details of her fascinating life. She speaks candidly about her suicide attempts, nervous breakdown, and two-year recovery in a psychiatric unit. She tells all about her past relationships, including a string of violent relationships, a brief marriage to an Australian politician who she later discovered had died of an AIDS-related illness, and a marriage that ended in infidelity. She also describes her devastation when her youngest sister, who had suffered from schizophrenia, tragically committed suicide. Never one to let life's problems drag her down, Trisha reached a turning point when she met and fell in love with herfuture husband Peter. Soon after their marriage, her life was to be turned upside down once more when she was headhunted from the UK to front her own daytime talk show. Trisha instantly won the affection of her viewers and her show was a roaring success. This tremendous autobiography tells of a life lived to the full and a career that has gone from strength to strength in spite of adversity. It is packed with hilarious stories of showbiz life and heartbreaking accounts of personal tragedies, all told in Trisha's unique style--up close and very personal.
