Shirley Jones memoir expected next year
Associated Press Tue, Aug 7, 2012 4:02 PM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) "Partridge Family" fans beware: Shirley Jones is writing a memoir that will reveal she was no Shirley Partridge.

The Oscar-winning actress and singer, best known as the matriarch of the singing television family, has a book deal with an imprint of Simon & Schuster. She warns in a statement: Anyone expecting the "All-American mom," Shirley Partridge, should be ready for a "few jolts."

Gallery Books announced Tuesday that the memoir, currently untitled, will be co-authored by celebrity biographer Wendy Leigh and is scheduled for release next year. Gallery said Jones is an "earthy, gutsy" woman who will write openly about everyone from Frank Sinatra to her famous son, David Cassidy.

Besides "The Partridge Family," Jones is known for such films as "The Music Man" and "Oklahoma!"

This sounds great as long as she doesn't go too Florence Henderson on us!

So she had sex with her husband.. Big deal. What she says about David is a bit weird. I mean he was still her stepson,but she was married to Jack and that's what married people do. They have sex. At one time that was the reason to marry in a hurry, so you could have sex. ( I know it's not required, but it was very much expected in earlier times, especially if you were going to admit to it). I guess it just doesn't seem like that big a deal to me. Heck, we know Mrs. Partridge had to had been a busy wife, before Mr. Partridge passed. She was young but still had 5 kids and they weren't adopted. ( even if Danny thought so). Smile

So she saw David naked, what's the big deal about that?
A stepmother sees her stepson naked. Rolling Eyes

These news releases and "leaks" aim to do one thing: sell books. They often inflate the truth or make the mundane seem more exciting than it really is. This is what grains of salt were made for.

Wasn't it Eve Plumb's book where the "news" about it beforehand hinted at a lesbian encounter with Maureen McCormick? And didn't that turn out to be completely untrue, and wasn't in the book? (I'm asking both rhetorically and actually, because I'm sort of hazy on the details).
