Did these celebrities from classic TV ever write an autobiography?

You've watched them on TV, but have you read about them in a book?

 Warner Brothers/MGM Television

If there is anything we love just as much as we love watching our favorite celebrities onscreen, it's getting to read all about their time on our favorite series. Many stars, both old and new, have written books about their unique journey to success. 

Many share stories of their childhood, personal experiences, stories from the set, and usually a little industry gossip — which many of us are guilty of loving a little too much. 

Some of the best stars have books of their own, and today we want to put your memory to the test. Whether you're in a book club, read casually, or haven't picked up a book in years, these celebrity-written books are perfect to add to your list of "Good Reads."

Some of these celebrities have written books, and some haven't. See if you can figure out who wrote what! Be sure to share your favorite book in the comments section, and good luck!

13/ 13. Kind of an autobiography fan, so tend to keep track. Still have MacLeod's on my shelf. Really enjoyed that one. Very inspirational. 🙂

"You got 10 out of 13. You've really read up on your classic TV stars! You should start a MeTV book club because you read this situation well. Great job!"

I guessed on a lot of them. I just finished "Forever Dobie" by Dwayne Hickman which was a
nice read. He is quite circumspect when it comes to any details regarding the starlets he dated.
I had no idea he was such a ladies man, he seemed like an average guy to me.
Yvonne "Bat Girl" Craig was just one of them, she was so blessed by Nature that when she strode
thru a studio all conversation would stop as men just stared glassy eyed.
That sounded overblown to me but her looks actually hurt her career, Sherry Jackson's as well,
as female leads in movies and TV shows - and producer's wives - didn't want her around.

My mom loves celebrity memoirs. She recently read Henry Winkler's (the Fonz) memoir. She wasn't a Happy Days fan at all but she really enjoyed the book! So I'm sure if you're a Happy Days fan you might enjoy it!
