According to Connie‘s agent, Loch Powell, Ms. Meester began writing “3 to 4 years ago”.

    Lol, I was gonna say 1st! But 2nd will do! Doubt I’d give this book a read although I like Leighton.

  • Sami

    people, especially hollywood parents should seriously learn to keep their family life private…

  • kim

    yea leightons awesome,
    buh i really dnt wanna read this book.sounds lyk its gunna be bad

  • gaby

    4th and omg who cares she a great actresss~!

  • ÍSABELLA

    agreed with #3 !

    Seriously I would break the kontakt with my mom or dad if they wrote about my privacy life like that!

    I hate britneys mom, what an asshole! I hope britney breaks the kontakt with that bitch.

  • lene

    Yeah i agree.
    Just because their CHILD is famous doesn’t make the parent(s) famous.

  • love her

    thats a shame that her mother is going to do that to her! I have never viewed her to have that type of upbringing and this will make people see her differently. People love to see her as he character and to believe she nails this role b/c she was brought up that way! She is a FANTASTIC ACTRESS BETTER THAT SERENA (over acts looks fake) but no matter what she over came her white trash upbringing and she is a fantastic actress!!! Her mother was and always will be TRASH for doing this to her! BOYCOTT THE BOOK IF YOU LOVE HER!!!!! WHY FEED HER MOTHERS DRUG HABBIT?????

  • Kira

    If I were Leighton and my mother tried to cash in on my fame like that, I’m pretty sure I would cut her out of my life. What is it with these famous people’s mothers? Do they all go psycho and jealous as soon as their daughters become famous? There was Jennifer Aniston’s mother, Lynne Spears and now this!! It’s disgusting.

  • AShley Rose

    Thats horrible, Leighton is the one whose image is to be tarnished by her mothers airing out the family laundry. Some people need to think.
    I however do still adore Leighton.

  • megan

    That’s a really awkward picture of her.

    But her mom still needs to STFD.

  • Magali

    NAY ! agreed with #3 too.

  • agi

    this is so wrong….for her mothers should have wanted to protect her not to damage her….
    but i love leigh no matter what,..

  • B

    according to the original article, leighton’s fine with the book being published but i have no idea how true this is. however i think it’s pretty ridiculous and ballsy of her mother to announce the book at this specific moment. even if she has been writing it for a few years now, it’s obvious that she is trying to use the current media attention her daughter is getting to up the prospective sales. at least wait a little longer until your daughters name weighs more than ‘blair waldorf’.

    @love her: although i am immensely against this book being published, i think it fucking sucks how much you assume about leighton’s upbringing and her mother. did her parents make mistakes when they were younger? clearly. did she sit off the time in prison? yes, we know this now. but is she still involved in illegal activities? fuck if we know. from all that i’ve heard of leighton growing up, she was nowhere near white trash, maybe slightly lower class, but that’s about was “trashy” as it gets. connie and doug meester tried to provide their children with a good surrounding to grow up in, so for you to just assume that leighton grew up in a trailer while her mum was out dealing drugs or whatever the fuck you picture white trash to be, makes you just as bad as the people judging leighton by her mother’s doing.

  • gnmc

    That would be an interesting book even if her daughter wasn’t famous. It will probably be more about her own journey anyway, so Leighton could maintain her privacy.

  • whoo

    i tried to ignore this bitch, but actually she’s damn sexy

  • whoo

    sewing machines.. remarcable!

  • Peekaboo

    Megan #11, pretty much says it all

  • http://alannaisbored.blogspot.com alanna

    That’s a really bad pic of her.

  • Kat

    NAY

    The mother is serious trash to attempt to cash in on her daughter.

    The irony, no one will buy the book anyway, but the damage is already done. Leighton’s reputation is forevor altred. Good work mom.

    As for Leighton, of course she released a statement of indifference. What choice is there?

  • Brianna

    Wow. Her mother should be ashamed of herself!
    If I were Leighton, I would be furious!
    Family life is PERSONAL. The fact that her mother would cash in on her family life is disgusting.
    :( Poor Leighton.

  • Hm

    NAY

  • samfromitaly

    Leighton rocks, as an actress and as a girl.
    I don’t care about what her mother will write in the book.

  • Divya

    i guess she just wants to get her 5 min of fame!

    luv leighton though :)

  • http://www.leighton-meester.org Annika

    This doesn’t change my view on Leighton. Your parents wrongdoings do not change your personality and I think Leighton grew up just fine. She seems like she’s such a sweet person and I’d love to meet her one day.

    I don’t think I would buy the book.

  • nadine

    Oh, another “writer-mom”. Seriously.

  • tiffany

    Well if Leighton was okay with it then i see no harm done but if she isnt then her mom really shouldnt do it.

  • leighton meester fan

    I agree with # 3 completely.Still love Leighton though

  • carolyn

    leigton is not poor, if her mother and family was a drug dealer they are RICH !!

  • naty

    It seems to me that they just want a piece of the cake. If my mom or dad did that to me I would of be so mad, that is just disrespectful.

  • Portia

    I think its horrible her mother would be doing this to her daughter, taking advantage of her daughter’s success. Leighton is a good actress and doesnt need this.

  • TANIQUA

    ARE YOU SERIOUS? WOA! I BET YOU ALOT OF THESE THESPIANS’ PARENTS WERE DRUGGIES.

  • love her

    @love her: although i am immensely against this book being published, i think it ******* sucks how much you assume about leighton’s upbringing and her mother. did her parents make mistakes when they were younger? clearly. did she sit off the time in prison? yes, we know this now. but is she still involved in illegal activities? **** if we know. from all that i’ve heard of leighton growing up, she was nowhere near white trash, maybe slightly lower class, but that’s about was “trashy” as it gets. connie and doug meester tried to provide their children with a good surrounding to grow up in, so for you to just assume that leighton grew up in a trailer while her mum was out dealing drugs or whatever the **** you picture white trash to be, makes you just as bad as the people judging leighton by her mother’s doing.

    DEAR B
    DO YOU KNOW HOW TO READ???? I SAID THAT HER MOTHER IS TRASH FOR DOING HTIS TO HER! AND I’M SORRY BUT IF YOU DO DO DRUGS YOU ARE TRASH!!! PEOPLE WHO DO DRUGS/SELL THEM AND THEN TRY TO TARNISH THEIR DAUGHTER’S REPUTATION AND THEN TRY TO MAKE MONEY OFF HER DAUGHTER’S MEGA TALENT TO ME ARE TRASH!!!!!!!!!!! YOU PROBABLY DO DRUGS/SELL THEM AND THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T AGREE WITH ME! IF THAT’S YOUR CASE YOUR TRASH B!!!!!!!!!!!

  • mmmmm

    this is just ridiculous
    i felt so sorry for leighton when the fact that she was born in jail came out, and now this..
    i love her though, i think she’s amazing on gossip girl

  • Monica

    All i have to say is, poor Leighton.

  • Crystal

    I don’t buy the mother’s agent’s claims that she started writing the book 3 to 4 years ago. Leighton wasn’t famous then and without her, there’s no way her mother would be able to publish a book since she’s a nobody.

    If the book gets a publisher and people buy it , Leighton is going to be the reason why. I feel bad for her, first it comes out that her brother was accused of rape now it’s revealed that her mother was a criminal not to mention her mother is going to expolit her.

  • kyla

    leighton is a great actor and i think her mom should rite the book if leighton agrees its their decision not ours.

  • jesse

    i know for a fact connies mom didnt write any book 3-4 years ago…she was to busy being an alcoholic and stealing every check her daughter ever got in. The earliest she could have started was 2 years ago, and shes only doing it for the money, and Leighton is NOT ok with it…her mom just has power over her. connie has been a movie and tv show writer for years with no success what so ever….the ONLY money she has made is from the checks they have been coming in since 2003 up mostly from all her guest star roles and the tv show SURFACE. now shes prob raking in the gossip girl checks, now she wants to put out a book all her mess…good god

    She doenst even like her mom, but her mom has a son ( leightons little half brother) so its not like leighton can break contact…plus Leighton supports her mom. put it this way, if leightons mom broke contact leighton would have NO ONE in her life. As messed up as connie is, its all leighton gots.
