NEW YORK (WLNY) – From Broadway to the big screen, Rita Moreno has done it all — and she has the awards to prove it.
Now on the hit TV show, Happy Divorced, the 81-year-old Hollywood legend has penned a memoir.
She said the book touches on a lot of issues she had yet to open up about.
“I really wanted [the book] to have some sense of elegance, I didn’t want it to be a flashy tell-all,” she said. “It’s my story. It’s the story of an immigrant girl who comes from another country at a time when it was very difficult to be an immigrant girl and to be in show business.”
She also opens up on relationships with high-profile personalities like Marlon Brando and Elvis — but you have to read the book to learn the juicy details.
Rita will do a book signing in New York City Tuesday evening and will appear on Long Island for a book signing and West Side Story screening.
