Wendy's book is a must read. Powerful. Captivating. Former Miss Universe knocks the ball out of the park. Awesome. Informative.

This indulgent book is an embarrassing setback to Caribbean women. The former Miss Universe from Trinidad (1999) chronicles her affair with a Jamaican married man (she claims his wife is an ex-wife, not actually true til later on in their strange relationship). In pompous vanity, Fitzwilliam demonizes the "ex-wife" who happens to be an ex-Miss Jamaica and also has a son for the man for whom she is pregnant. Then likens her own unborn son to Jesus Christ! Later in the book she demonizes the child's father and portrays herself as a sort of innocent bystander.
She refutes her religious faith because it doesn't pander to her wantonness. As though every moral rule should be changed to suit her choices. Just another example of a shameless person making an irresponsible decision and hoping to being praised for it. She criticizes all who judge her and is softly defiant of her trusted professional friends who try to steer her to a better path. Fitzwilliam boasts she has enough money to be mother and father to her illegitimate child and expects everyone should be loving and welcoming to her. She may be independent but she is defintely not someone to emulate. 2 stars because this is as much truth you will get from her (including the news articles), even if her ego is over inflated. Her delivery is simple and artless and the book can be read in a mere 2-3 hours. I believe she did indeed write this herself, so kudos for that honesty.
