Courtney Love’s Memoir Sounds…Interesting

If there’s one thing Courtney Love is not, it’s boring, and that aspect of her was on full display when she sat down for an interview last night (June 6) on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Love was on the show to promote the new Lifetime original movie Menendez: Blood Brothers, in which she plays Kitty Menendez the slain mother of Lyle and Erik Menendez.  When asked if she remembered the infamous Menendez brothers murder trial, Love naturally said that she was in a Seattle during that time “kinda doing different stuff.”

However, the topic changed to how she’s working on a memoir, but already, she’s now working with a second writer after the first writer she initially brought on to ghostwrite wanted to make her memoir too much of a tell-all.

Instead, Love said that the only secrets she’s willing to elaborate on are the one that magically leaked via her Wikipedia page, which means she’s using her Wikipedia page as a guide to writing her book.

If any high school/college students are reading this right now, don’t follow this advice when writing your next paper!  Telling your instructor, “But Courtney Love is using Wikipedia to write her book!” isn’t a good enough excuse to get you out of any bind.
