Portia de Rossi on "Meet the Author"
The episode released last week was evidence that iTunes should do more of these (though Apple's hands have been full with other important things).
In the podcast, de Rossi opens up about the difficulty she had with divorcing her husband (who left her for her sister-in-law), coming to terms with her sexuality, and learning to love her body in the Hollywood world of size zeros. She tells Goldberg that at one point she weighed 82 pounds, and she spent almost all of her time working out to keep control of her weight. De Rossi has an amazing, inspirational story, and she should be viewed as a role model to individuals hoping to succeed in Hollywood, as well as those struggling through their own identity issues.
I generally like reading memoirs by people I admire or respect, so I am looking forward to picking up de Rossi's.
