I think that's my issue with the book. I was ON twitter when everything went down, and there is no denying what happened. I give people far more leeway than they deserve, and I'm still willing to give CC quite a bit here, but since I know she was supporting NB when he went on his RIDICULOUS tirade, and then claimed to have no knowledge of it afterwards tells me that what she says isn't 100% trustworthy.

Some folks really have Crystal on a pedastal, if you look at the comments in response to her book. I don't get why she would be on one. We SAW her behaving badly, and then we saw her go into deny, deny, deny mode in the hours and days following. I guess she was waiting to write her book to tell the truth so she could squeeze some money out of fans for the "true story."
Seems like a pattern, though. She admits she behaved badly during her first stint. We SAW her behave badly during her second one, too.
Does she really think everyone who was there for her first go round has amnesia? Some of the cast and crew that were there the first time are still around. They probably remember the way she behaved and weren't all that thrilled she was returning. If someone was unkind years ago behind the scenes, why would they roll out the welcome mat? Why wouldn't they be at least cautious or wary of her?
