Shatner Book Re-ignites Feud

27 Comments

Over the years, William Shatner and George Takei have taken shots at one another and Shatner’s new book, due out next month, will only continue their feud.

In his new book, Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large, it’s Shatner’s turn to attack Takei.

Takei has been “”saying mean things about me for nearly forty years now,” said Shatner, who then went on to say a few mean things of his own.

Regarding Takei’s wedding several years ago, Shatner said that contrary to what Takei said, Shatner did not get an invitation. Furthermore, Shatner believes that Takei asked Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols to be best man and maid of honor for one reason only, to get media coverage of the wedding.

Takei “says that I have a ‘big, shiny ego,'” wrote Shatner. “Well, actors have big egos. If mine is shiny, it’s because I tend to it very carefully and lovingly. Perhaps George’s needs a good polish.”

Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large goes on sale October 4.
