Nine memoirs that reveal the dark side of Hollywood

At Bustle, Sadie Trombetta tagged nine memoirs that reveal the dark side of Hollywood, including:
Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

Though it is rife with humor and wit, Carrie Fisher's bestselling memoir reveals darkness behind the laughter that so often serves as a mask in Hollywood. In Wishful Drinking, the Star Wars megastar uses her personal experience growing up as Hollywood royalty and becoming a famous actress herself to explore the rampant sexism, substance abuse, and scandal in Tinseltown. Sharp and unapologetic, this celebrity memoir is unlike any other, and a must read for fans who want to know what it was really like in the limelight for the dearly departed star.
