RIP Pineapple Princess
I've read this book at least once before, but this is the first time I've read this book since her death. She was an absolute sweetheart, the true epitome of a Disney Darling. She had a whole fandom and franchise. When she was on the Mickey Mouse Club, she would receive thousands of fan mail a month.
She was even marketed with the early Disney Princesses and Alice. She was truly Disney royalty.
From what I understand reading the biography, young girls loved her because she wasn't exceptional at one thing, rather, she was more of a jack-of-all-trades. She wasn't a prima donna ballerina, but she could go up en pointe. She wasn't a chanteuse, but she could carry a tune. Little girls would watch her on TV and they'd say, "I can sing and dance just like Annette!" She was the girl next door, the daughter of Italian immigrants who pursued the American Dream to the fullest.
It must have been so hard growing up. She was scrutinized for her figure and that must have been really awful. Puberty is awful enough. I can't even imagine.
I loved reading about her interactions with Mr. Disney and the Mouseketeers.
I really appreciate Annette being unflinchingly honest throughout her book, even including the part where she slapped her son. Annette doesn't shy away from the pain, she describes the sad parts of her life with as much detail as the happy parts.
Reading her account of MS helped me, as I myself struggle with a chronic illness.
When she passed away two years ago, I remember crying. I was so, so sad. But her MS was severe, towards the end she was in terrible pain.
She's up in heaven right now, with Jimmie Dodd and Walt Disney, she's singing and dancing and laughing.
