Despite some folks' good-natured claims to the contrary, Jo Marie insists that Mark is only a friend. However, she seems to be thinking about this particular friend a great deal lately.

Reviews of Rupert Everett's first memoir, "Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins", compared him to Evelyn Waugh, David Niven, Noel Coward, and Lord Byron. But Rupert Everett is - of course - one of a kind. Mischievous, touching, and nothing less than brilliant, this new memoir is filled with brand-new stories, from childhood to the present. Astonishing encounters, tragedy and comedy, vivid portraits of friends and rivals, razor-sharp observations of the celebrity circus from Los Angeles to London and beyond, there is something extraordinary on every page. A pilgrimage to Lourdes with his father is both hilarious and moving. A misguided step into reality TV goes horribly wrong. From New York to Moscow to Berlin to Phnom Penh, this memoir takes the reader on a wild and wonderful new journey with a charming - and rather disreputable - companion.
