“One day at a time is working for me as I am sure the journey to recovery will be a long one. Your kind thoughts and good wishes will continue to comfort me on my journey.

Anne’s book, due out this month, is set to cover her Hollywood career as well as her relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres and her friendships with Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin.
The Six Days, Seven Nights actress died after being injured in a violent accident in Mar Vista, Calif. on August 14, 2022. She was 53.
Call Me Anne is a sequel to the memoir Call Me Crazy, published in 2001.
Start, an independent publisher based in Hoboken, New Jersey, shared the excerpt in September with The Associated Press.

The book’s publisher, Jarred Weisfeld, said he signed a deal with Heche in May and she returned a manuscript shortly before her death.
She will also write about having Harrison Ford as a mentor, as well as stories about Alec Baldwin, Ivan Reitman and Oliver Stone, among others.
The book’s release was first announced by Publishers Weekly. Heche had mentioned writing a memoir during a podcast earlier in 2022, in which she promised “some of the truths” about her and DeGeneres would be included.
The actor has shared candid thoughts about his relationship with stand-up DeGeneres in the late 1990s, when they were among Hollywood’s first openly gay couples.

“I’ve been called ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before dating Ellen,’ Heche wrote in Call Me Anne, who is from Start Publishing.
Heche, whose films included Donnie Brasco and Wag The Dog, was a successful film and television star.
During her lifetime, Heche said Hollywood effectively blacklisted her because of her time with DeGeneres, who around the same time made television history by having her character appear in the sitcom Ellen as gay.

“I personally didn’t identify as a lesbian,” she said.
‘I just fell in love! It was, to be clear, as strange to me as it was to anyone else. There were no words to describe how I felt,” Heche wrote in her book.
‘Gay didn’t feel right, and neither did straight. Alien might be the better choice, I sometimes thought.
‘What, why and how did I fall in love with a person instead of their gender, I wish I had an answer if someone had asked, but like I said earlier, no one did. never did. I’m glad I could tell you in this book – once and for all.’
