I was there. The author was being kind to Randy Quaid (or possibly feared for her life). It was much worse that she made it seem. The Quaids’ demands were completely unreasonable. His contract allowed him the same reasonable approvals that any star would have (although it's debatable if he even was a star worthy of such), but the couple took that to mean total artistic control.They would make late night (more precisely early morning) calls to the producers and management, with what seemed to us as drug-fueled ravings. Cast members were afraid to be near either him or her when not onstage.
