The Legs Are the Last to Go

Luding her marriage to Vic Damone and her torrid relationship with Sidney Poitier The Legs Are the Last to Go is an unforgettable self portrait and revealing Hollywood memoir at its fines. This was an enjoyable memoir You could tell it was written from the vantage point of a mature woman at peace with her life and her decisions good and bad It is filled her self acceptance a surprising amount of candor and an ability to laugh at situations that might and did cause a younger Diahnah much angst I was surprised at how open and transparent she was regarding child rearing and her sometimes turbulent relationship with her daughter her parents choosing men and career decisions Although we no longer have Ms Carroll in this realm to look up to she is definitely at peace Favorite uote And I m so glad my father and I had a chance to reconcile and have a proper and uiet goodbye just days before his passing The peace we found with each other before it was too late is something the has brought great comfort to me When you re forgiven it makes you understand just how much you are loved And when you forgive The whole world opens up to you and you make yourself available to the highest form of happiness p 247 No it isn t of a lady with a body to die for all of my Pilates training notwithstanding The lady on the cover of this book is one who has lived and still has some lines of experience on her face at least before the retoucher got to it The lady on the cover may or may not be the perfect mother or grandmother and heaven knows she has nevr been very good at selecting men But you know what she most definitely is She s happy I hope you like her I do p 267

The actress who broke through television’s color bar entertainment legend Diahann Carroll tells all in her candid memoir The Legs Are the Last to Go The first black woman to star in h. I hope this book was cathartic for Ms Carroll because while it is interesting The Legs Are the Last to Go certainly does not put her in a favorable light In alternate chapters and sometimes in the same chapter she is sympathetic pathetic vain self centered and selfish Both boastful and contrite she weaves an interesting tale in her memoir Diahann Carroll occupies so many firsts in the African American pantheon Yet for all her achievements for all her intelligence charisma charm and beauty her inability to sustain or cultivate loving relationships repeatedly sabotages her own happiness with help she discovers this Unable to convince herself that she was worthy of a loving reciprocal relationship throughout memoir she repeatedly allows herself to be subjected to treatment in her personal life that I cannot believe she would tolerate in her professional life The Legs Are the Last to Go has huge gaps and the reader may wonder where were her friends and family when she pushed aside her husband for a punishing and degrading 9 year affair with Sidney Poitier As written I am led to consider this book an explanation and apology to her daughter with whom she has thankfully reconciled She discovers very late what Jacueline Onassis once so elouently stated If you bungle raising your children I don t think whatever else you do well matters very much With all that she has learned this reader believes there are still other lessons awaiting Diahann Carroll and this book is somewhat unsatisfying

    It is uite possible that my tracks were shuffled So I won't spend a lot of time on how the stories seemed a little all over the place That might be on me This is not Carroll's biography so it is not meant to be linear anyway this is a sort of supplement subtitled Aging Acting Marrying and Other Things I Learned the Hard Way and that is inde
