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

Probably interesting to anyone who knew much about the hair metal scene in the 1980s or who likes the music of such bands. I enjoyed it more than I expected really. I thought it was hilarious in many places, and actually quite touching at the end.

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.

It's exactly what you might expect...coked out (and later methed out) 80's video tramp blames her shortcomings on everyone else. The encounters with Hollywood actors and musicians are entertaining though.

I love the days of the 80's hair
bands. I was born and raised in
B.R. La, and had heard many
stories about Bobbie Brown.
None were flattering. I was
friends with a girl who attended
her wedding.

I take offense to how she has
us Southern's speaking, because
she has us all sounding like we
were raised in the swamp, but other
than that, this was an entertaining read, and

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

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.

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.

She's on drugs and uber slutty, rock stars are drugged out cheaters, Tommy Lee has a big penis, & Leonardo DiCaprio is bad in bed. There. Now you don't need to read it. If you are/were a fan of the hair bands, you might enjoy the little tidbits dropped here and there about various groups.

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.

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

This was an easy, quick read about something I grew up with - 80's hair metal bands. Bobbie tells her story with no holds barred. I recognized a majority of the players in her tale which kept me into the book.

There were a few things I knew as fact that Bobbie didn't speak to at all, which surprised me. Events such as the death of Vince Neil's daughter, Skylar, considering how good of friends Bobbie and Sharise are/were, the death of a child at a birthday party at Tommy Lee's house, and the deat

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.

First off I would like to applaud Bobbie for being soo open and honest. It takes a lot of balls to name names and risk backlash. One thing a lot of people don't realize is that when you're in the music world, it's not name dropping it's just who your friends/lovers are. If she was doing this for attention she would not have focused on all the drug use and bad decisions in her life. This was a great look into the reality of pretty faces and the days of hair metal. The reason I rated it only 4 sta ...more

I loved this book for so many reasons. I am a Fan of the Ex Wives of Rock show and Bobbie was instantly one of my favorite ladies. I love reading biographies of people that have led extraordinary lives, lives that the average person couldn't even imagine. I love reading about famous people that lived the Sunset Strip and the glory days of Hair metal/Rock. Bobbie is so open, no filter for telling her life to the world, as she says! Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. I wond ...more

I was in just the right headspace to read this, right on the tail of John Taylor's autobiography (Duran Duran). I was 15 when Cherry Pie hit the airwaves and once anyone has clapped eyes on Bobbie Brown in the film clip, there's no forgetting her! I played this album on high rotation for a year solid, so I was thrilled to find out Bobbie had written her own story.

I couldn't put it down - I read it in two nights. Bobbie was affected by her amazing beauty in her youth (who wouldn't be?!), but alwa

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!!!!!!

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
