Shirley MacLaine is having a good run on “Downton Abbey,” but her personal life just took a turn for the worse with the publication of her daughter’s book, “Lucky Me.” According to a People Magazine, Shirley MacLaine’s daughter, Sachi Parker, has written a tell-all book that is not at all flattering to the famous mom. In her statement to People Magazine, MacLaine calls the book "virtually all fiction. I'm sorry to see such a dishonest, opportunistic effort from my daughter".
According to Daily Mail.com, Sachi Parker alleges that her mother arranged her first sexual experience at 17 years of age, complete with sex therapists in attendance. Shirley MacLaine denies this and the other accusations of abandonment and poor parenting alleged in the book.
People.com explains that Sachi was raised by her father, sent to live with him in Japan at 2 years of age. She saw her mother in the summers, but felt distanced from her. She describes the relationship as one of love, and she seems to have come to understand her mother for who she is. She did state that Shirley MacLaine's role on “Downton Abbey” was “true to form” for her mother.
