Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Wild, graphic, sometimes funny, ultimately sad -- this is the book that had Hollywood hiding behind closed doors and "no comment". Four beautiful young women tell the stories of the famous, the sexy, the rich, and the sadistic. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is not a fun or light hearted book.

I felt sorry for these girls when I started reading this book, but the feeling mostly left me near the end of it.

It turns out the powerful like to exercise their power and the powerless don't have any.

Hee hee--who could resist? It names the names and details the perversions. There are no heroes or heroines in this book, dear reader. The four women who wrote their 'memoirs' are some of the silliest, stupidest, most banal creatures ever to stalk the earth. I loved the story about the woman who 'serviced' George Harrison about two minutes after she met him. Then she got angry that he never asked her name. You just want to shake the pathetic girl and holler, 'You're a HOOKER! You're a GROUPIE! They don't WANT to know your name!' The men don't come off as any better: slaves to their wee-wees, intoxicated with the power of their money and fame, able to get anything for a price. Hollywood is revealed as a place where shallowness, money, idiocy and bimbos reign (surprise, surprise, surprise). So, no big revelations--unless learning about Stallone's very abnormal fetish is your idea of a good time. (And after you read it, think about the big lunk earning $22 million a picture. Do we as a nation have our priorities screwed up or what?)

I gave this book 5 stars because it appears to be true.

It provides insights into the lives of people who have the resources to create a living hell for themselves in preparation for what I assume is waiting just ahead for them.

However I suffer from mild depression and this book doesn't help any.

The second case study was particularly disturbing. Here's a tormented soul who was sexually molested, raped by sex fiends, and slit her wrists twice by the time she reached about age 20.

The father can take credit for the rape. He allowed a 12 year old girl to go to a strange house with strange people who he knew were in the pornography business. Anyone with even minimal intelligence would realize this was a dangerous situation for a young girl.

She was wreckless and exploitive of herself also. Prostitution is after all an exploitive activity.

The second case study came very close to getting pulled into a white slavery ring in Paris. This was done under the guise of a modelling engagement by an enterprising individual who turned out to be cunning, devious, and sinister.

If that would have happened the things in this book would be kids' stuff compared to what would have happened to her. I assume her family and friends would never have seen or heard from her again.

Girls thinking about getting into prostitution should be intelligent about going to strange places with strange people, especially about going to another country. In a situation like that the line between asking someone to do something and forcing them against their will is very thin. You can never be sure who you'll run into in that business.
Danger and death are always lurking in the shadows of this dark world.

I read this book within 2 days and then I read it again. I loved all that movie star gossip. I dont think i will ever look at Vanna White, James Cann, Sylvester Stallone, Warren Beatty, Bob Evans, and lots of others, the same way again. The Biggest SKUMBAG of all is Don Simpson! Its a good read, found it very entertaining.

Total trash. Funny, the women tell their stories but none of the real consequences like STDs, unwanted pregnancies, abuse. Fast read without substance. Good for an airplane. Bought it because it was cheap. And we wonder why Bill Clinton's eye wandered. This book says it all...until women draw the line, men will make the rules.

I walked away from this book with conflicting views about it and its contents.
On one hand, I felt very sorry for the girls about some of the experiences they had, but one of the girls still seemed somewhat smug about the sexual experiences she had with certain celebrities and considering the fact that she said she had suffered so much , that kind of dampened the effect of the horrific things she went through.
Another thing is that 3 of the girls kept going on in their sections about how sexy and beautiful they were or how hot their bodies were or how hot and sexy they looked at any given moment.

I'm sure that they are all beautiful girls-I think its a given that prostitutes to the stars would have to be very attractive-it got kind of grating hearing it repeated over and over again.

I think its sad the way they allowed themselves to be used and degraded for so long , but I do admire them for writing this book as a cautionary tale for young women though.

Although every girls story was a sad one,Liza stirred my sympathy the most.
I hope they are all doing well now.

Format: Paperback
This book can't decide if it is Celebrity Gossip or anti-prostitution.

While starting out with a blurb from someone writing about the terrible world of women being dragged down into prostitution, the girls go on talking about their jobs with the calmness of a fast-food worker talking about his job. The women ramble on for pages and pages about the gifts they got and the free shopping sprees, and they would even talk about the sex in a non-committal way. For some of them, it only seems like they felt like they were wronged when they were spurned by their "boyfriends".

Don't get me wrong, that world really does chew up women and spit them out. It's just this book does a really inconsistent job of pointing that out to readers.

Also - if you were born past the time this book covers, or like me during that era weren't paying attention a lot of attention to soaps and gossip magazines, the "big names" won't mean squat to you.
