She's my cherry pie. Tastes so good, make a grown man cry.
Who could forget the sexy "Cherry Pie" girl from hair metal band Warrant's infamous music video? Bobbie Brown became a bona fide vixen for her playful role as the object of lead singer Jani Lane's desires. With her windblown peroxide mane, seductive scarlet lips, and flirtatious curves, she epitomized every man's fantasy. But the wide-eyed Louisiana beauty queen's own dreams of making it big in Los Angeles were about to be derailed by her rock-and-roll lifestyle. Ever wonder what it's like to f*** a rock star? After her tumultuous marriage to Jani imploded, and her engagement to fast-living Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee ended in a drug haze - followed by his marriage days later to Pamela Anderson - Bobbie decided it was time Hollywood's hottest bachelors got a taste of their own medicine. Step one: get high. Step two: get even. In a captivating, completely uncensored confessional, Bobbie explicitly recounts her encounters with some of the most famous men in Hollywood: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Mark McGrath, Dave Navarro, Sebastian Bach, Ashley Hamilton, Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Orgy's Jay Gordon, and many more. Who's got the most titanic dick in Tinseltown? Whose bedroom did Bobbie (literally) set on fire? No man was off limits as the fun-loving bombshell spiraled into excess, anger, and addiction. Bobbie survived the party - barely - and her riveting, cautionary comeback tale is filled with the wildest stories of sex, drugs, and rock and roll ever told.

"A pleasant surprise"
I've read a lot of autobiographies and I have to admit this one surprised me. When I heard her mention revenge in the first chapter, I thought she was going to tactlessly air out other people's dirty laundry but she is equally hard on herself. The other autobiographies I've read are all peppered with wishy washy "love yourself" self-help reminders that don't seem to be coming from the heart and just seem like a way to fill up space and gloss over the tougher details of their life that they do not want to share with others. Of course it is one hundred percent understandable that they wouldn't want to share private details but as a result the books seem more like a money grabber. We can get a brief summary of anyone's life from a magazine interiew. Bobbie fearlessly bares herself and teaches everyone else the lessons she learned in the process.
I'm embarrassed to say I had really low expectations for this book, but thought it would be a fun read anyway remembering my own days on the Sunset Strip. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I usually can't stand it when the author is the narrator. This book is the absolute exception to this rule. Bobbie Brown did a phenomenal job narrating this. You felt like you were right there with her. I think she's missed her calling. I would listen to her as a narrator on other books as well. She was THAT good.
As for the story... where to begin? I have no clue how she managed to pack so much into less than 6 hours. She found a way to make the stories fun and at times gut wrenching, too. You really felt like a friend of hers living it with her. Also, I can't say she threw anyone under the bus really. YES she spread dirt on many a "dirty rocker boy," but not in such a way as to make you feel like she sold anyone out. She spoke her mind about some of the different nasty girls from Hollywood, but I never felt like it was a cheap shot. I'm pretty sure I'll have to read this one again.
My only complaint.... is that the book was too short. I would have gladly listened to another 6 hours :-)
"She tells it all."
I had never heard of Bobbi Brown before I listened to her book. I always like it when the author reads their own books but she struggles with it. Crazy stories of the very famous. Satisfied my need for hollywood gossip.
Very interesting story, some parts very graphic, but the narration was horrible. It sounded many times like she was rushing through the story to get done which was very distracting from the story.
"I had no idea who she was - and loved it anyway!"
Hearing her voice. Her audio inflections of outrage, sarcasm, or subtle disgust come in loud and clear. I felt like I was hearing a story told by a good friend over a drink or five.
I love her humility. She started out on top with everything handed to her, and when things go wrong, she has a dark but very human sense of humor about it.
Davd Navarro's "introduction tape".
I was especially glad that her child came out alright.
"It's awesome to hear Bobbie read her book to you"
Honest life story of Bobbie Brown in her own words and tone.
unique book; no other like it
I loved the honesty and way that Bobbie conveyed her story.
I bought the book and to have her read it to me; such a great story and book.
Bobbie is honest about her life and this is a true and real story told in an awesome way. I am happy to own it and have the audio version as well. I am a fan of Bobbie and Jani.
Its difficult to believe that Bobbie Brown actually wrote this book. When the author narrating the book cannot pronounce words correctly like Chutzpah or Mores its obvious.
"Not Exacly What I Expected"
Yes, This book gives a insider look into the rock lifestyle of the time. Bobbie doesn't hide things because she doesn't want to make someone mad or to make herself look better. Everyone's flaws are out on the table and so are hers.
Bobbie is so transparent in this book that you can really get a feel of the ups and downs in her life. She is also careful to tell her story from her perspective. Others are discussed in detail but she doesn't really speculate on their story as much as her perspective and experience.
I love reading biography or autobiography types of books. You can tell when a book is written on the fly or with certain things omitted or glossed over so that the person telling the story is seen in a better light. Bobbie doesn't hold back her own short comings and you can tell what she has learned from her experiences and how she really feels about everything around her. Is she a saint? Hell no. But is she just cold hearted and out to get everyone, not really. This is a down and dirty book and I loved it.
"amazing story no filter"
she left nothing out amazing story , her performance was an A+ I loved how she showed the truth behind every one in her life and left nothing out as bad as it got.
Exactly what I was looking for, entertaining and interesting! Some lives are fascinating! Enjoyed it!
