This book feels like her attempt to sway the courts and public opinion in her favor in the battle over her dissolved marriage. On almost every page she paints herself as a saintly, lowly servant who suspects her husband is cheating, yet she says nothing to him about it. The one time he does pull her aside to tell her about another woman, she isn't smart enough to stand up for herself and instead enables him to continue his behavior.
The fact that she thinks we'll sympathize with her proves how out of touch she is with her own reality. Hulk is no angel but the picture she paints of herself is of a ditzy golddigger (she even complains about the $9 million house they build) who likes his rough sex and wants to live the good life so much that she doesn't ever really stand up for herself. It's clear that her attitude came from parents who always told her how wonderful she was, no matter who she slept with or what bad choice she made. She makes absurd statements like, "Linda was always the last person on my priority list." No--she always appeared to place her selfish feelings first and never really dealt head-on with life's circumstances.
The other question is just who wrote this book? This woman whose career was doing nails and only had a high school education? I doubt it. No ghost writer or co-author is named. It's all too neat and tidy for a woman of her limited education to write.Read more ›
This book is propaganda at it's highest form. From a woman who was nothing and still is nothing. Who basked in her husband's fame and the perks that go with it (none gotten on her own, mind you, it was ALL Terry's). This is the kind of woman who would lean over and stick her face in a camera trained on her husband to try and get her own "15 minutes".
I wasn't there, none of was were. But i find it hard to believe almost all of these exaggerations and so do most of the people who WERE as close you possibly could be.
The likely lies and exaggerations in this book are many and are numerous. Not only did this woman use Hulk for his money and bank accounts to give her riches and possessions she never deserved, but her family and her family's businesses also took advantage of Hulk's money.
She doesn't deserve a book and doesn't deserve any of the "face" time she's getting. A true 'user' and real-life gold-digger, its a shame there's people out there like this. Poorly written as well and again...most of it is just really hard to believe. I'm glad i got my hands on a copy that was passed to me, instead of buying this trash. AVOID at all costs.
Poor Hulk! He's no angel, I'm sure, but I sure would not have liked to have lived with this nasty woman.
Maybe her recopies are good? They take up a lot of pages and they are probably the best pages in this thing.
There was a feeling that there was a lot of "filler" items to make the book a bit longer (as the book is a thin, short, easy read as it is.)
I was not interested, I was bored to tears, and I would not recommend this book.
