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 f

Cool drink of water such a sweet surprise

Sweet cherry pie


When I picked up this book, I was not familiar with Bobbie Brown. All I knew was that she is the crazy, extremely beautiful and sexy woman in Warrant's Cherry Pie music video. After reading Brown's "autobiography", I am not much smarter when comes to my knowledge of her. I still don't know who she is outside of that famous (and smoking hot) video.

Dirty Rocker Boys is not so much a book a

This book is the biography of the woman who starred in Warrant's Cherry Pie video, Bobbie Brown. I read it because I am crazzzy about '80s music and there was a time when the only thing I'd listen to was Hair Metal. Def Leppard, Skid Row, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi on repeat.

So I was just curious to know about my favourite bands but this book was …well, I’m going to sound very crass but reading this book was like reading a whore’s journal who is high all the time and actually took pride in whatever s

Wow. Just wow!!!

I've read a few rock 'n roll bios and there is nothing more brutally honest when someone can talk about how great the music scene and then talk about about how great the drugs were...up until the social taking turns into full blown addiction. This was a brutally honest tale of how great the Sunset strip was in the late 80s/early 90s to the metal/glam hair bands and then how it all came crushing down. Bobbie was a full part of that, but from the other side. No, she wasn't in a ba

Anyone who grew up in the 80s remembers the first time they saw the "Cherry Pie" video starring the absolutely gorgeous Bobbie Brown. I always wished I'd had the guts to move to L.A. when glam rock was It and all of the guys were hot, sleazy musicians with long hair. Bobbie did it. I loved living vicariously through her as she dated Tommy Lee, one of my first crushes. She doesn't hold anything back. You laugh and you cringe on the same page. This woman has been through a lot and admits she's not ...more

I was very young when Warrant's "Cherry Pie" was a hit, with its video constantly rotating on MTV. Even though I was just a kid, it was clear who the star was of the (very popular) music video: the blonde bombshell with cherry red lips, Bobbie Brown.

I grew up with older siblings, who were very much into Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Guns 'N Roses, glam metal, and metal in general. Their tastes rubbed off on me, naturally. I vaguely remember reading in the paper about Bobbie and Jani, and then Bobbie and

I grew up listening to rock and hair bands in the 80s, thanks to my dad. He was a big fan of the music but just as big a fan of the hot video vixens, women like Tawny Kitaen and Bobbie Brown.

The first time I saw the video for Warrant's "Cherry Pie" I was mesmerized and it had nothing to do with Jani Lane or the rest of the guys. I saw Bobbie Brown and thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world. When I read she came out with a book I knew I had to pick it up. I'm so glad I did!

I read it in one night - good book for those who lived/loved the 80s and like to read juicy stuff on them. She pulled no punches and told as much dirt if not more on herself than the other people she was writing about.
Heather Mckenna
Eh. What a disappointment. I felt like I was reading the ramblings of a druggie.

MY THOUGHTS: Unfiltered doesn't even begin to describe Bobbie's mouth. She's blunt and doesn't hold back much and is hilarious. The memoir flowed nicely and I really didn't want to put it down. It was a quick read, 264 pages, but it's not for everyone because of her coarse language.

Bobbie Jean Brown came from an abusive home (her father Bobby, for whom she's named after, was a wife beater, as was his father) but wasn't abused herself. She went on to be in countless dysfunctional, sometimes abusi

Who can forget Warrant’s Cherry Pie? Blasting the song that came on almost every hour, and the video that played just as much – Bobbie Brown, the new metal goddess. This is her story. A small town girl from Louisiana, growing up in a volatile home until her mother finally left her father for good sneaking both her and her brother out of the house in the middle of the night with suitcases that were already packed. Winning Miss Louisiana Teen pageant without “trying” to going National second place ...more

Read this in one sitting and loved it!!! When Cherry Pie first came out I remember thinking holy shit this woman is the epitome of beauty and why the hell do I NOT look like her? lol Even though my current bf at the time said we look like twins hehe bless his soul. I always thought she was better than Pam Anderson who always seems to have a perpetual bitch face going on or else a phony smile. Yes Pam was beautiful but very much knew it and that made her unattractive to me. Back in the day we did ...more

It was a fun read! I loved many of the 80s and 90s musicians mentioned in the book and enjoyed this insider look into the whole LA scene behind the music.
Marissa
Better than I expected. I envied her in my younger days for marrying Jani Lane before I got a chance, of course, but no more! She wasn't exactly what I expected, but still led quite a life.

Also, just reinforces the fact that the members of Motley Crue are all pieces of garbage.
Kristin
Takeaway: Leonardo DiCaprio is extremely well-endowed, even more so than Tommy Lee. Mark McGrath, not so much. And Dave Navarro is insane.

This book contains strong language, descriptive sex, drugs, booze and disturbing scenes.

It was one of those boring evenings that I had nothing to do but youtubing random things...from how to's tutorials to music to top 10 things etc etc and then I found myself watching the first season of Ex Wives of Rock. Two of those ladies seemed familiar to me. One of them was Athena Lee which I had seen live with her then husband James Kottak of Scorpions at a Scorpions concert in Gre

Not what I expected when I started reading but a very entertaining and likeable book. No great insights into the lives of the hair rock heroes that she has been intimate with but some nice stories and gossip.

Incidentally I was at a Las Vegas party a few months ago and apparently Bobbie was there as well. Wish I had been a little more sober that night and I could have shaken her hand.
Marilyn Vix
This was a good book, esp. if you're going through any struggle. Bobbie relates all of her ups and downs, opportunities and regrets. From winning a beauty contest, to eventually modeling and marrying her teen idol, she gets into all of the nitty gritty of the path of destruction that goes with all of these choices. Be careful what you wish for. Sometimes you get it. This story shows that all your dreams can come true, and that's when you should question, is this dream really what you want? Somet ...more

Such an honest book about her life as a model and meeting all the rock stars she befriended and dated. This book was really good to read. Definitely recommend it if you grew up in the 80s/90s Rocknroll era as I did and she brought me so many cool memories. Bobbie you rock!!!!!!
Melanie Call
This book turned up in my Kindle book recommendations one day, and I thought, why not. I chose it purely as a guilty pleasure, and was not disappointed. People need to remember she was not a rock star herself, she just happened to be on the scene. Yes, she was a sexual person, and she did drugs, but in the end she seems to have realized where she went wrong. I don't feel that she spends her time blaming everyone else for her shortcomings, it just comes off that way. I found her to be explaining ...more

I also read this book in one sitting. I'm not going to lie, I love gossipy Hollywood stories, and this book satisfied that addiction. I liked that names were named. Kevin Costner? Really? Who would have known.

It also showed that in Hollywood you can be at the top of your game and the next minute spat out as we all know. This chronicled this perfectly with Bobbie's life and Jani Lane's.

I couldn't help but like Bobbie and reading about her experiences. I didn't think the book was badly written and

I wouldn't normally have picked this book up to read but one of my book clubs was reading it. I thought it brought back good memories of a lot of 80's and early 90's bands that I listened too- and I definitely remembered the Cherry Pie MTV video. Beyond that I was just amazed at how the author let herself be passed around in the scene. I guess her honesty is therapeutic for her and I appreciate that, but at times the book just felt like she was bragging about the who's-who of the business and he ...more

I'm a reality show junkie and love the Ex-Wives of Rock show, Bobbie being one of my favourite's. So of course I was curious to see what she had to say about her time in the spotlight and I was really interested in her relationship with Tommy Lee specifically.

I felt like she needed a good slap across the face at some points and to wake up to herself and I felt her pain and regret in other parts. I think she was openly honest with some of the content in this book which is admirable since it does

It took a lot of courage to for Bobbie to write this book. It's revealing, raw and ribald. I went through a range of emotions while reading it: disbelief, disappointment, shock and finally... empathy. I understand how it could happen: how the opportunities slipped away, how the men used her, how she became so entrenched in each relationship that she lost herself. Every woman should read this whether they are involved with a dirty rocker boy or not.
Kristina
If you grew up in the hairband era, especially in So Cal- this is a great read. I read it in 2 days & appreciated Bobbies candor.
Erica
I devoured this book in two sittings! I have always admired Bobbie since I saw her in the Cherry Pie video and she married a rock star. It seemed like she had the perfect life. I had no idea that she was just like the rest of us, always searching for that perfect love. Everyone can relate to her story. We have all wanted to be loved and wanted the perfect relationship. I respect her so much more now after reading her story. Her life was far from the fairy tale that I thought it was and being the ...more
Marie Johnson tribble
This is a must read! Bobbie truly opened up her heart and her soul and shared what life was like living in Hollywood. I can only say that I highly respect Bobbie for sharing her most intimate times in her life, and allowing us in to read how she made it through some of the most hurtful things someone could possibly go through!

you really feel like you personally get to know her and I can't say enough how much more I respect her for sharing her life with us!

Kim
I've never been big on bios of the famous. I've read a few - Ellen, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, Betty White...but, I always find them a bit underwhelming. I've never starred one more than a 3. I guess I expect BIG stories from these extraordinary BIG lives - but what I feel like I get instead....general blabber. Words filling in space.

Never before have I had interest in a rocker bio. Just not interested in the lifestyle. Or so I thought.

Yesterday, I read Dirty Rocker Boys. In one si
