Regarding Joan, Dietrich says:
"I am shocked that Paramount bought that filthy book "Mommie Dearest", and made that frightful bitch who wrote it rich (and that rhymes). I did not know Joan Crawford, but nobody deserves that kind of slander.
Too bad she did not leave her where she found her, so that she could now spit her poison in the slums of the big city. I hate her with a passion, and I know the public will.
Faye Dunaway should be ashamed of herself, but then she probably needed the money to pay her liquor bills."
