Well, with that article my disappointment is sealed. She told a show creator who, as far as I know has proven himself to be completely oblivious to anything regarding women, things that she was still working on from the point of view of a women, at a time that, more than ever, women's voices should be amplified at every turn.
It doesn't really matter then if she started writing the book before the show started. She gave away her best asset - her creativeness - to a low level writing team. That's a shame. It is mind boggling that she would do that and allow them to get ahead of her book, using her ideas, and destroying the genius part of it. I guess capitalism wins, and art loses (because I cannot see any other reason, other than money, for her to simply allow her book to be massacred by a - many times - mediocre TV show.) Really disappointing.
