“This whole experience [was] closer to who I am than many things I have done,” he said.
“I suppose because the subject was so dear to my heart.
I really couldn’t have asked for a better job than this.” Although inspired by the bestselling “Girlfriends’ Guide” book series whose author, Vicki Iovine, went through a similar public divorce from music mogul Jimmy Iovine, the star made it clear that the series isn’t based on the author’s life. I am not trying to be Vicki Iovine,” Edelstein emphasized.
“The book that my character will ultimately start writing is not Vicki’s book. Many shows about divorced women quickly dispense of the ex-husband as she goes her own way.
“I couldn’t have designed this job better if I tried,” Edelstein told The Wrap of choosing her first series regular role since leaving Fox’s “House” in 2011.
