    So the Pointers move over to Motown, but two years after Berry left. Ruth says the one record they did for Motown, Right Rhythm, was so depressingly average that today she can't recall a single song...

    Ruth is on husband #5 at this point and he is a winner. Apparently Miss Ruth got her chit together for the most part, so I say all's well that ends well.

    Serious Slammin' was the group's final LP for RCA, and their last with Richard Perry. Ruth said he was going for a harder funk sound like what Cameo was doing and although she understood the...

    I am now at 1988 in Ruth's book. Everything is falling apart. Ruth said that the Pointers' high point was Breakout, and it was, but going forward after that huge success was scary. She even wonders...

    Thank you, Peace. You can get the book on Kindle for $9.00 [[Amazon). Anyway, Ruth gets Meningitis and winds up almost dead in the hospital--and she had to stay for weeks so she finally sobered up....
  9. Sorry I got so mad yesterday but honestly I could...

    Sorry I got so mad yesterday but honestly I could not believe what I was reading. I try not to be judgemental, I really do, but some of this is just too much. I had no inkling, when starting this...

    Okay I'm done with this book. What I just read is so disgusting, so repulsive, that I have to stop. I was not put on this earth to judge anybody but what I just read was so vile that I'm done. There...

    Oh man, this is so sad. Papa started losing his eye sight and hit a girl while he was driving somewhere, and he killed her. After that, he couldn't drive anymore so other people had to take him...

    Fire: It's amazing how two people in a group can have very different versions of the story behind a song. I already posted Anita's version. Ruth says Bruce Springsteen originally wrote the song for...
  15. Ruth becomes so down and out that she had to take...

    Ruth becomes so down and out that she had to take anonymous, small backing gigs just to get by. One of those were Rick James, whom she sang for on a song called Little Runaway. This was before his...

    Ruth gets pregnant for the third time, and when she told Dennis Edwards about the baby on the way, Dennis promptly left her alone in his CA home and moved in with another woman!! At this point, the...

    Ruth calls Jeffrey Bowen a "weasel who convinced Dennis Edwards to record a solo album behind the backs of his fellow Temptations." Bonnie Pointer then leaves the group, and it's obvious Ruth blames...
  18. Boogie--I am not sure if Rose Royce had anything...

    Boogie--I am not sure if Rose Royce had anything to do with Motown--Ruth is talking about Gwen doing a one off for the Car Wash movie. I know Norman produced RR in the 70's and yes I Wanna Get Next...

    Wowsee wow wow! On the set of Car Wash, Ruth overheard Norman Whitfield demanding of Gwen Dickey [[Rose Royce) "Why can't you sing like the Pointer Sisters? Come on! Put some guts into it!!" I guess...
  20. I'll tell you one thing, Ruth is way more candid...

    I'll tell you one thing, Ruth is way more candid than Anita. She compares having success in the biz is like the old cliche "As soon as you're born you start to die." Ruth explains how a group, even...

    Did they chant "Chaka Khan" at the beginning?
  23. Man, Anita, in her book, comes off as funny,...

    Man, Anita, in her book, comes off as funny, likeable, grounded and normal, whatever that is. Ruth, whom I had always felt, for whatever reason, was the sensible, level headed girl of the group. Just...

    Fair warning: I'm reading Ruth's book now--look out!
  25. I am going off memory here--but Jeffrey Bowen...

    I am going off memory here--but Jeffrey Bowen produced a few albums on the Temptations in the 70's, and the group couldn't stand him. He was just rude, with no tact. At some point the Temptations...
