She reveals that she had a one-night stand with a New York politician who gave her a sexually-transmitted disease.
Do we really need to know this?
Ms. Henderson defends her decision to “tell-all” this way:
“I love to read memoirs but I know when they’re not being really honest and I thought if I’m going to write this I’m going to write about myself as a human being who has had to overcome an awful lot in my life and had to face a lot of challenges, make a lot of mistakes, make some bad choices but I’ve managed to keep growing and evolving to live a very full life filled with friends, four children that I adore, five grandchildren and a career that I dearly love. So I just want people to know that they can make mistakes, have a hard childhood, but you don’t have to be a victim of all of it.”
Who is she trying to kid? She’s not being honest, she’s being undignified. She’s showing no class, and I suspect that Ms. Henderson is indeed a classy lady.
To me, the lesson from celebrities is that a little discretion can go a long ways.
