Your Serve Is Rather Weak

renee-richards.jpgAccording to a Reuters report:

“As Renee Richards, the world’s most famous transsexual athlete, looks back on her life, she has one regret — the fame she attained.”

Dearest Renee, your 15 minutes of fame are WAY past. If you’re so against the fame you received, why are you writing another book?

“In the mid-1970s and when her memoir, “Second Serve: The Renee Richards Story,” came out in 1983, was treated as an curiosity and besieged by television chat shows. But with the release this month of her second memoir, “No Way Renee, The Second Half of My Notorious Life,” few came knocking and television showed no interest. ‘It is annoying to me,’ said Richards. ‘I’m so ordinary now; they’re not interested. There’s lots about transsexuals now.'”

If you are serious about having a normal life, shut up and you’ll have one.

*edit*

My friend just responded with one of the best lines EVER.

”She doesn’t want her fame but she’s annoyed that no one is interested in her second book? Isn’t that like Dietrich saying she’s annoyed no one is coming over?”
