I Don’t Kiss And Tell

A friend of mine suggested, I write a tell-all book, about men I’ve known.

Please don’t mistake this for hubris, but models quite often are thrown into the path of the rich and famous.

“It would be a hit,” my friend said.  “You’d make money.”

If anyone needs cash, it’s me, but to earn it by telling secrets, taints the privilege, to say the least.

I treat others the way I want to be treated, therefore, HATE when I’m gossiped about.  I mean, really HATE it.

Recently, on a job, I overheard someone telling someone else I suffer from hearing loss, like I was some kind of freak at a carnival.  I was so upset, running into the bathroom to cry.

It wasn’t the hearing loss part, since I’ve finally owned my plight, it was how she spoke of me, as if I’m half a person it’s best to stay clear of.

I knew a girl, once married to the comic Richard Pryor, who wrote one of those books….Tarnished Angel, l believe is what it was called, and she went on all the top talk shows carrying on about, who was great in bed and who wasn’t.

I remember cringing as I watched, the display, so very awful.

I’d rather be broke then globally offensive.

My friend…very connected in the publishing world, meant well, but it’s just not in me to kiss and tell.

Not my 20, as they say in Harlem, discretion being a trait, I can’t help but to admire in myself.


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    There are those who’ve made kat their life’s endeavor. I’m with you: I think it stinks. But it’s very difficult to legislate for: when does prurient intrigue become public interest? There’s a fine line to be trod.

  3. Not that I’ve had the opportunity to romp around with anyone people would care about, I feel the same way. When I’m driving down the road and Madonna’s Borderline is on the radio, I can pause, smile and have a moment.
    When the whole world already knows it’s just not the same.

    Good for you, Susannah. Imagine how horrid it would be if some famous man wrote a tell-all book about the models he has known. Same thing, just that the shoe is on the other foot. What happens in the bedroom should stay in the bedroom.

    • That’s how I feel, even if some are not worthy of such avid protection. In the times we live in Skinny, privacy is no longer. We should have no desire to help that along. Nothing is sacred any longer…sigh


  5. A book on sex romps? May be very successful but….perhaps there are other fun stories that don’t diminish the person that could be told?

    Like Kate, I think you could write a book about people you know/knew. Wouldn’t have to be a tell all kinda thing just a memoir of some of your experiences and adventures.

    • All three of my ebooks bombed…who’d read it.

        I would read it…but I don’t buy books. It’s part of my decluttering and simplifying life thing by not buying something just because you want it I have to need it. I’m not always successful but for books I go to the library or friends lend them to me. Guess I am no help.


      • You’re a very nice person. Does Teddy read? How bout Jack? Bet he’d love the Hardy Boys. Teddy of course would purr over The Three Muscateers, all that bluster and swagger. 🙂
