Order I'm Just Sayin'! by Kim Zimmer by clicking above!
Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of elderly women who won?t give up their remote controls until somebody gives mouth-to-mouth to their afternoon shows? in the new new media capital of the world, St. Petersburg, Florida!

Kim Zimmer was with the soap opera Guiding Light for 26 years ? more than a third of the 72 years the show was on radio and television.
But a look at the picture of her on the cover of her new memoir, I?m Just Sayin?! Three Deaths, Seven Husbands, and a Clone! My Life as a Daytime Diva, doesn?t suggest someone headed for a rockin? chair.
She?s too feisty ? based on the content of her book ? to ever just fade away.

I?m not a big soap fan, as regular viewers and listeners to Mr. Media know. But the last time Kim Zimmer was on this show, in March 2010 ? along with her TV husband, Robert Newman ? she was a lot of fun. So I had to invite her back to talk about a book that she clearly invested a lot of personality and truth in.

KIM ZIMMER audio excerpt: “It wasn’t like I was falling down drunk when I went back to Guiding Light after lunch. I had just numbed myself with a couple glasses of wine so I didn’t freak out on people. It put me in a place where I was able to handle my disappointments a lot better… It was unprofessional… I guess… but I was never sloppy drunk when I was doing my work. By the time I got to the set, the wine had worn off, like when you cook with it.”
