Actress Ashely Judd, sister to Wynonna and daughter to Naomi has written her memoir and it is due to hit stands tomorrow. The book is titled; All That Is Bitter and Sweet. It sounds like it will be a juice tale of depression, abuse and even suicide attempts. Naomi and Wynonna have both written books now little sister Ashley has done the same, guess I'll add it to my Kindle, I read the other two. This one is Ashley's story of growing up and being left by her mother and sister as they hit the road to become one of the biggest country music duos in history. She suffered depression, loneliness, molestation and incest but somehow made it to the top of the box office as a movie star herself. However, it took therapy to help her deal with all of that, the therapy she received was right here in the big country. Buffalo Gap to be exact.

Ashley says she only learned to fight her demons after entering rehab for depression at Shades of Hope in Texas. Therapy sessions there exposed memories of childhood incest. Judd said she still has bouts of depression.


Ashley has, of late, thrown herself into philanthropic work and in 2001 married race car driver Dario Franchitti. She splits her time between Scotland (her husbands home) and Tennessee on the land she shares with her mom and sister.

The books release date is tomorrow, April 5th.
