Sure, SAG has a retirement fund for actors but it seems like someone should establish a 'keep your memoirs to yourself fund.' This way celebs could avoid embarrassing tell-alls when they need some extra pub or scratch. They call up the fund with their grievance, the fund sends them a small check, and then a writer comes by to turn the tale into a fictionalized account of the incident. The celeb gets a creator/co-writer credit on anything that comes out of the story and can rest easy that the other side "knows what they did." This may give the actors and writers a little synergy against the studios for the next round of negotiations when their current contracts expire (we are not smiles times, my friend).
