"Playing Reva Shayne was so much more than just a job and a paycheck. It was the role of a lifetime." -Kim Zimmer, from I'm Just Sayin'
The landscape of daytime television will dramatically change next year when soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live go off the air, cancelled after more than forty years on television. No one knows what the demise of these shows will mean for television and for the affected actors better than Guiding Light veteran and one of daytime's favorites, Kim Zimmer. Her show was cancelled in 2009, ending one of television's longest-running success stories and leaving Zimmer without a job.
This August, New American Library is excited to publish Zimmer's new book, I'M JUST SAYIN'!: Three Deaths, Seven Husbands, and a Clone! My Life as a Daytime Diva (New American Library Hardcover; August 2, 2011; $26.95; ISBN: 978-0-451-23343-1).
Zimmer, a four-time Emmy Award-winning actress, is known around the world for her twenty-seven year portrayal of Reva Shayne on the popular daytime drama Guiding Light. While on the show, Zimmer played a vixen, a manic-depressive, an Amish woman, a time traveler, a Civil War belle, a talk show host, a cancer survivor, a loving mother, and a devoted wife. But now in her new memoir, Zimmer shares the story of the woman behind Reva-from her beginnings as a small-town Midwestern girl to landing one of the greatest roles in the history of daytime television and becoming a soap opera icon.
In I'M JUST SAYIN'!, Zimmer also talks about:
* Why soap operas are going off the air after decades of popularity
* Her struggles with alcohol and how it impacted her family and her career
* How she balanced being a busy working mother (her "greatest role") and a full-time career woman
* Her encounters with such celebrities as Kathleen Turner, Alec Baldwin, and Oprah Winfrey
* How she has managed to maintain a successful marriage for thirty years
* The difficulties of losing a job later in life, especially in a field that is youth and beauty focused, and how she continues to pursue her acting dreams
Blatantly honest and wildly entertaining, I'M JUST SAYIN'! takes readers on an insightful journey through the parallel lives of Reva Shayne and Kim Zimmer and chronicles the stories behind Guiding Light, the longest-running drama in television and radio history (72 years!).
