Cindy Williams dishes to ET about her new tell-all, Shirley, I Jest!: A Storied Life, which covers everything from her time on Laverne & Shirley to her love life.
Cindy and her partner in crime, Penny Marshall, became television icons through their characters originated on Happy Days. Spinoffs in the '70s were rare, but for Cindy and Penny the decision seemed to be a no-brainer. Their sitcom Laverne & Shirley became the No. 1 show on TV in the late '70s and was nominated for six Golden Globe awards.
In her book, Cindy also dishes on her romantic relationship with the late comedian Andy Kaufman.
"I just adored him," Cindy said. "From the moment I laid eyes on him on Saturday Night Live I just thought, 'What a huge talent!' He just made me laugh."
Cindy famously appeared on Andy's ABC special, Andy's Funhouse, and it became one of the most awkward (albeit hilarious) TV interviews of all time. In the 1979 special, Andy feigns total ignorance of Cindy's career.
