DOROTHY DOES PUBLISHING

1976 Olympic Champion Dorothy Hamill will release an autobiography, A Skating Life, this October from Hyperion Books.

(Hyperion is a Disney imprint. With Disney being the ultimate expert in synergy, should we be looking forward to an ABC/Wide World of Sports skating special this Fall? After all, Dorothy did make her television skating debut on their network. And will Michelle Kwan be making a guest-appearance? Disney loves Michelle Kwan!)

Interestingly, when Dorothy shopped around a book proposal in 2003, it was turned down at several houses for being too nasty and bitter -- not the image America wanted for their ice princess.

So either Dorothy had cleaned up her manuscript since then, or publishing has decided Ms. Hamill can be as nasty as she wants to be!
