"Riding Lessons" with Bo Derek

The name "Bo Derek" conjures up many "B" words;
"Riding Lessons Everything that matters in life I learned from horses" is Bo Derek's autobiography.
Born Cathy Collins in California, Bo was a child that used to hang out with her Mom's showbiz friend, Ann-Margret. As a teenager she met actor John Derek and eventually married this man, 30 years her senior.

Bo discusses her friendships with John Derek's ex wives;
Ursula Andrews and Linda Evans. She describes her adventures in film making and her iconic 1979 film, "10." Bo honestly admits that she knew that she was not a good actress, but she knew how to pose in front of the lens. He most passionate writing concerns her love of horses and horseback writing.

Bo is smart enough not to bad mouth people, but she has some choice comments about certain individuals. One wishes that she discussed her last financially successful movie,
"Tommy Boy" with the late Chris Farley and David Spade.

A woman with a definite independent streak,
Bo Derek bucked the Hollywood elite by being
a spokesperson for the Republicans during the 2000 and 2004 Presidential campaigns.
A fun read.
