Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Morgan Carter (Jo Jo) is only seventeen years old, but she's already on top of the world.

Audience Reviews for True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet
Like many Lifetime movies, this one is ripped from the headlines of troubled child stars abusing substances and jeopardizing their amazing talents and careers for momentary pleasures. Valerie Bertinelli, once a child star herself, stood out in this movie. Though the subject is intense, this is really a lighthearted skimming with lots of teen angst and awkwardness thrown in. JoJo handles the lead role well. Not a bad way to spend an evening.
Mildly entertaining fluff. Not really a movie of substance, but sometimes you are in the mood for a movie that is sure to have a happy ending. This movie delivers on that.
Pretty good. Really good Lifetime movie. Mostly all the Lifetime movie's about bad teens or anything teenagerish at all are good. Great movie.
