Having been interviewed myself a few times and listening to countless Osmond interviews over the past 37 years, it was delightful to read from the journalist's perspective, their personal experiences and stories when interviewing celebrities. Francine even mentions how her phone interview with Donny and Marie went.
What would it be like to interview your favorite celebrity? Would your favorite have the same personality that you have envisioned them to have in your mind or would they disappoint you? What did the male journalist do when the female star came to answer her door with only a towel wrapped around her? What were some of the funniest interviews? What were some of the most difficult interviews? What were the most bizarre, memorable or elusive interviews?
What movie star can entertain and enthrall a journalist for an hour and then leave the journalist with nothing or very little to write about him? Which entertainers are willing to share private information about other stars they have worked with? Who is just downright rude and arrogant?
What is required to be a successful entertainment journalist? Would it be a dream come true to get paid to write about the stars, attend their cocktail parties, receive gifts and VIP treatment for show openings and performances? You'll absolutely love "Beyond the Red Carpet" if you are interested in the world of entertainment and the inside scoop of entertainment journals and celebrities. Not only does this book give you great insight into the pros and cons of the entertainment business but you just might read about your favorite celebrity!
