Charlie’s Angels star Kate Jackson is writing her memoirs, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The tell-all tome is bound to be a controversial read, after the veteran actress vented sadness and disappointment at actor Ryan O’Neal, claiming he prevented her from seeing her from co-star Farrah Fawcett‘s during Farrah’s final months alive.
“I was shut out,” Kate told RadarOnline.com, earlier this year. “I was prevented from saying goodbye to one of my best friends.”
Jackson, 61, is teaming up with Gallery Books, an imprint of publishing powerhouse Simon & Shuster, to write a book about her long career: including her on-set and off-set feuds, personal crises and triumphs — from beating breast cancer to adopting a son.
The book, currently untitled, is scheduled for release in June 2011.
“Kate plans to tell her story which is a raw and powerful tale,” a Jackson pal told RadarOnline.com.
“Farrah will play a significant role in her story, including how she wasn’t allowed to say a final goodbye to her dying friend and co-star.
“She will also be brutally honest about her reliance on painkilling drugs after several car accidents left her in agony.
“There is obvious interest in Kate and Farrah’s life and the time is right to capitalize on that.”
In the 1970s, Jackson starred with Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith on the hit TV series Charlie’s Angels.
