Homer Laffoon, son of Anne Heck, shares details about his mother’s diary

Anne Heche’s son Homer Laffoon has shared details about his mother’s upcoming memoir Call Me Anne, five months after her tragic death at the age of 53.

Lavon, 20, who was given control of his mother’s estate in November, thanked fans for their “love, care, and support” while discussing the release of her second memoir and an event celebrating Heche’s life and her book.

“Homer is here,” the letter, posted on Thursday, began. I never imagined I’d find myself in charge of my mom’s IG account, but here we are. First things first, from August to now, the amount of love, care, and support shown by those on social media and IRL has been overwhelming and has been greeted with my blessings – thank you.

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

‘But that’s my mom’s account enough about me. I have a responsibility to share with her community what she’s been working on and how excited she’ll be to tell you herself.

My mom had a complete manuscript for a second book at the time of her death. The book is the product of my mom’s extra efforts to share her story and help others where she can.

“Call Me Anne is the result and I know she was excited to share it with the world. So, Mom, here I am sharing it with the community I created, may it thrive and take on a life of its own, as you would have it.”

Laffoon then invited fans to an upcoming event celebrating Heche and her diary.

For those in Los Angeles, there will be a special event at Barnes & Noble in The Grove. I know my mom wants to see everyone’s smiling face as she reads excerpts and signed copies.

I don’t plan on using this platform much, but I know she loves her fans, I love writing (she’s been writing endlessly) and it wouldn’t feel right not to communicate at a time like this.

“I also love my mom’s signature, Peace and Love, Homer.”

Anne’s book, due out this month, is set to cover her career in Hollywood 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 sustaining injuries during a fiery crash in Mar Vista, California on August 14, 2022. She was 53 years old.

Call Me Anne is the 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, Jared Weisfeld, said he signed a deal with Heche in May and that she turned in a manuscript shortly before her death.

She’ll also write about Harrison Ford’s presence as a mentor, along with stories about Alec Baldwin, Evan Reitman, and Oliver Stone, among others.

The book’s release was first announced by Publishers Weekly. Heche mentioned writing a diary during a podcast earlier in 2022, where she promised to include “a few facts” about her and DeGeneres.

The actress shared candid thoughts about her relationship with DeGeneres in the late ’90s, when they were among the first gay couples in Hollywood.

I was labeled “outrageous” because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen,” Heche writes in Call Me Anne, which is from Start Publishing.

Heche, whose films included Donnie Brasco and Wag The Dog, was a successful movie and television star.

In her lifetime, Heche said Hollywood effectively blacklisted her for being with DeGeneres, who made television history around the same time by having her character on the sitcom Ellen come out as gay.

Anne's book, due out this month, is set to cover her career in Hollywood as well as her relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres and her friendships with Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin.

“I never personally identified as a lesbian,” she said.

I simply fell in love! It was, to be clear, as foreign to me as anyone else. There were no words to describe what I felt,” Heche wrote in her book.

“What, why, and how I fell in love with a person rather than their gender, I would have loved to answer if anyone had asked me, but as I said earlier, no one has ever done that before. I’m glad I was able to tell you in this book—once and for all.”
