Synopsis
"'You will do foolish things' said the great writer Colette, 'but do them with enthusiasm!' And that, my darlings, I have done! So put your feet up, relax, and let me take you on one woman's journey through the beguiling, bewildering wilderness of romantic encounters, replete with puppy love, Latin love, smoldering lust, stardust, obsession, high comedy, high camp, and all manner of peccadilloes and misadventures. A rollicking, madcap ride through the wide-open countryside of love. Just watch out for land mines." --FromMy First Five Husbands . . . And the Ones Who Got Away People always ask me if I'm like Blanche. And I say, 'Well, Blanche was an oversexed, self-involved, man-crazy, vain Southern Belle from Atlanta -- and I'm not from Atlanta!'" -- Rue McClanahan Who can forget Rue McClanahan as the sexy Southern vixen, Blanche Devereaux, on the Emmy-award winning seriesThe Golden Girls? With her breezy sex appeal and sharp comedic timing, Rue infused her character with a sassyjoie de vivrethat captured the hearts of audiences around the world. Now, the actress behind the magic reveals her life in and out of the spotlight in a laugh-out-loud funny memoir about love, marriage, men, and getting older that is every bit as colorful as the characters she plays. Raised in small-town Oklahoma in a house "thirteen telephone poles past the standpipe north of town," Rue developed her two great passionstheater and menat an early age. She arrived in New York City in 1957 with two-weeks worth of money in her pocket, hustled her way into a class with the legendary Uta Hagen, and began working her way up in the acting world against the vibrant, free-spirited backdrop of the sixties. That's when she met and married Husband #1a handsome rogue of an aspiring actor who quickly left her with a young son. Still, she was determined to make it on the stage and screenand in the years that followed, rose to the top of the entertainment world with a host of adventures (and husbands) along the way. From her roles on Broadway opposite Dustin Hoffman and Brad Davis, to her first television appearances onMaudeandAll in the Family,to theGolden Girlsera and beyond,My First Five Husbandsis the irresistible story of one woman's quest to find herself. Now happily married to Husband #6, Rue is proof that many things can and do get better with ageand that with tenacity, talent, and a little help from Saint Dymphna, even a small-town girl can make it big. Told with Rue's saucy wit and Southern charm,My First Five husbandsis a deliciously entertaining take on life and love from an irrepressible star.

"People always ask me if I'm like Blanche. And I say, 'Well, Blanche was an oversexed, self-involved, man-killing, vain Southern Belle from Atlantaand I'm not from Atlanta!" Rue McClanahan Before Carrie Bradshaw and her cosmo-sipping friends onSex and the Cityor the Desperate Housewives of Wisteria Lane, there were the Golden Girlsfour sassy seniors living out their years in Miami Beach. InMy First Five Husbands...And the Ones Who Got Away,Rue McClanahan, known for her role as everyone's favorite Southern vixen, Blanche Devereaux, shares her personal story in a witty memoir that is every bit as colorful as the characters she plays. From her arrival in New York with little money to her name, to her time studying with theater legend Uta Hagen, to her first television role onAll in the Family, toThe Golden Girlsyears and beyond, Rue chronicles her life in Hollywoodand all the men (five big ones) and adventures that happened along the way. Told in Rue's inimitable voice, and flavored with her sharp humor and vivacious Southern charm,My First Five Husbands...And the Ones Who Got Awayis the story of one woman's quest to find herself. Now happily married to her soul mate, Rue is proof that many things can and do get better with ageand that, if she keeps her wits about her, even a small-town girl can make it big. A memoir of surprising depth and intelligence,My First Five Husbandswill have you rolling with laughter, aching in empathy, and cheering out loud for this unforgettable, irrepressible star.

"This book is about men I have known, in both the Platonic and Biblical senses. Some I knew only slightly, some quite well. Some I'll love always, some I no longer like very much, and there are a few I'd like to strip naked, tie to a Maypole, smear with sweet syrup near a beehive, then stand back and watch. I'll describe a goodly number of these hot dudesanddudskeeping the nicest man for last becauseif for nothing elseI'd like to leave you, dear reader, with a good taste in your mouth, and Hubbies #3 and #4 might make you want to rush to gargle. There were times I truly wondered,Lord, will I EVER get it right?Thank God I thrive on variety." --FromMy First Five Husbands . . . And the Ones Who Got Away People always ask me if I'm like Blanche.
