Sachi Parker, the daughter of Shirley MacLaine, has written a tell-all book about her colorful mother entitled, "Lucky Me." People Magazine had the details on Thursday, Feb. 7. Shirley MacLaine is currently appearing in "Downton Abbey," the British period drama on PBS, which her daughter said is "true to form."
Parker was predominantly raised by her father, Steve Parker, and she was sent to live in Japan with him at 2 years old. Sachi Parker came to stay for summers with her mother in Los Angeles where she described a fun-loving MacLaine meeting her at the airport.
According to the article on People Magazine.com, Sachi Parker discusses her feelings of distance from her famous mother who flatly denies the accusations in the book.
In her memoir, "Lucky Me," excerpted below, she shares her painful story (a story her mother, in a statement to PEOPLE, calls "virtually all fiction. I'm sorry to see such a dishonest, opportunistic effort from my daughter").
Sachi Parker told Fox News that she had abandonment issues from her experiences. She also shares that her mother would charge her interest on any money that she loaned her.
You can watch Shirley MacLaine in “Downton Abbey” on PBS on Sundays at 9 p.m.
