As the notorious Reva Shayne on the daytime television drama Guiding Light, Kim Zimmer portrayed a vixen, a manic-depressive, an Amish woman, a time traveler, a Civil War belle, a talk show host, a cancer survivor, a loving mother, and a devoted wife. In her more than two decades on the show, she earned eleven Daytime Emmy nominations and four wins, not to mention a legion of loving fans. Now, in this heartfelt memoir, Zimmer delves into her experiences as a daytime diva.


Packed with on- and off-set photographs and behind-the-scenes information, blatantly honest and wildly indiscreet, I’m Just Sayin’ tells all in an insightful journey through the parallel lives of Reva Shayne and Kim Zimmer—and the true stories behind the longest-running drama in television and radio history.


“This book is brassy and bodacious, just like the author. A riotous read." — Susan Flannery

"The first job I ever had was on a soap opera, and the first great actress I ever worked with was one of the stars of that show, Kim Zimmer. Kim showed me, early on, that acting required talent, but also hard work—and most of all that it had to be fun. And no one, over these many years, has proven to be more talented and more fun than Kim. She is a woman to love" — Alec Baldwin
