The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

of the stars of 1970s TV hit The Par­tridge Fam­ily, Shirley Jones (pic­tured), is writ­ing a mem­oir that re­veals she was no Shirley Par­tridge. The Os­car-win­ning ac­tress and singer starred in films such as The Mu­sic Man and Ok­la­homa! but is best known as ma­tri­arch of the singing TV fam­ily. Any­one ex­pect­ing ‘‘All-Amer­i­can mum’’ Shirley Par­tridge should be ready for a ‘‘few jolts’’, she says, of the book which will be re­leased next year. The mem­oir is co-writ­ten by celebrity bi­og­ra­pher Wendy Leigh.
