Did you ever feel like that Hollywood trophy wife think that you supported your husband that you didn't have an identity. I have to say we're in so many years I I was very happy to play that part. And it was it was nothing that was ever said or did -- that I really felt I I was happy to play it because. I -- I was shy and I was happy to let Aaron tell the stories and -- those spokesman for the family out that was fine. I just thought you know I had to look good and -- the Parton you know that was all that was expected of me. -- and and now. You talk about the transformation in fact you can -- you wrote about the specifically. Because you're also a Broadway producer is well promises promises. How to succeed in business without really trying in fact is that the Tony Awards when -- walking the red carpet that you had said for the first time I was no longer just Aaron spelling's wife. Or -- -- Melissa sent mother. At and at that age you had felt as if -- their there was a new chapter that had started. Absolutely and Aaron always said to me follow your dreams. And having -- have that you know his terrible illness led me there -- -- that this is what happened -- I actually it prepared me. Four career at my age I now have a career. In. On -- overwhelming.

Being encouraged by some of your girlfriends to get back into the dating world. -- -- yes and and -- that was quite an experience and and I think as I've gotten older I've lost a lot of my filters so IE. I shared a lot more intimate things in the book but I think that I thought I would of Africa. And it -- it was kind of they really push me into it and one of my girlfriend's daughter was 27 years old have it. But talk -- tell you used to describe this wonderfully but -- -- and and that talk was about well if you're going to be intimate with a man. Things have changed since it and it was not not a talk that was a mother has that the teenager here's here's a 27 year old having a -- -- a very grown lady. And I didn't have a clue she's had you have to -- -- medical report from every man that you intend to be with them. How can get that from just house. -- -- It's tough times have changed to a little bit a lot candidate I also -- talking there about how that. I -- she said that I had to get condoms because I had that protected sex so right. I go with. I go to the drugstore and I literally who -- -- no I mean there is such -- selection but. As an entire islands. Basically it really hit it takes almost as much for was the toothpaste does -- -- in the market. It's huge and I had no idea I've got to say I'm gonna say when I got to that point of the book eight people people really struck me because you know you've described and you -- you go -- there's some great pictures I mean the who's who of Hollywood. And you described the -- building. The matter -- -- your your house that is so famously -- 56000 square feet just as beautiful this is beautiful home. And I was thinking to myself how how -- -- relate to this how does America how does the rest of the world relate. To someone had lived this life and when you started talking about the story about dating. About learning about the Internet about hiding condoms. It was like it was it was a very real very -- revealing news sort of sort of share that you had. It's true again it's you know what even though I had a very peer groups have been privileged life. And I'm I'm so thrilled and I'm very fortune. But. In so many ways -- like everybody else I'm really not any different and it it it all those things are not any different for me than they would be for someone else. We think the biggest misconception about humans. Pardon we think the biggest -- -- the biggest missed all I think that. A lot of the first of all my shyness always comes off as eight and hold us you know she's a -- cold and and it's not that is I'm always embarrass someone won't know why am. And so I kind of look away because well they won't remember me. And in I think they think that -- this mean witchy woman. A lot of there's been a lot of paparazzi. -- and about a lot of things of the -- the last few years that has made me really looked terrible and it as real hurtful but. -- will be the infamous feud with the territory. -- -- to set the record straight then because there -- as as you well now as we both know that often times those kinds of headlines you can be -- sells newspapers from a -- it sells tabloids. What -- it wet -- but what what is the relationship with -- right now. Absolutely terrific -- it there -- there was a period where we really you know word.
