Eddie Fisher's tell-all book about his marriages to Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Connie Stevens is out in bookstores, and Taylor is not pleased.

"I think Eddie Fisher must have been in another world when he wrote his book," she said in a statement released Saturday. "Have you ever noticed that he is the only ex-husband I don't talk about?"

"Been There, Done That" was released last week and is billed as an "insider tale of two decades of American pop culture and celebrity royalty."

Fisher wrote the book, published by St. Martin's Press, with celebrity profiler David Fisher, who is unrelated to the 71-year-old singer.

He said he never thought of having a "love affair" with Taylor, and became intimate with her only after she requested he visit her early one morning following the death of her husband, producer Mike Todd.

"I never saw her as a beautiful, desirable woman. She was my best friend's widow, she was my friend," he wrote in the book. "I assumed she wanted to talk about Mike. Which demonstrates how little I understood women."

Taylor suggested that Fisher concocted stories about her in his book.

"I can't seem to get his name out of my mouth, but I would never make up stories about him. I wouldn't have to," she said. "But I do hope he gets better."
