This is the definitive story of the rise and tragic fall of a woman who became one of the world's most recognized celebrities, thanks to her voluptuous beauty - and her devotion to sex, drugs, money, and fame. Donna Hogan, Anna Nicole Smith's sister and a confidante to her and other family members, provides an intimate and mesmerizing account of how Anna escaped poverty, anonymity, and an abusive family as she rocketed to fame. All too soon, Anna crashed to earth at the age of 39, weighed down by drugs, alcohol, lawsuits, scandal, and the unexpected death of her 20-year-old son, Daniel. Born Vickie Lynn Hogan, she left school in 10th grade, had a son by age 18, became a stripper at 20, and married a billionaire at 26. She transformed herself through plastic surgery and sheer determination into Anna Nicole Smith, Playboy's Playmate of the Year in 1993, and a spokesperson for Guess Jeans and TrimSpa. She later starred in her own reality TV series, The Anna Nicole Show, on E!. She told everyone who would listen that she would be the next Marilyn Monroe. And she pursued that dream right to its tragic end.More

Bad. Just Bad.
I enjoy having audiobook bios/memoirs of very controversial, polarizing people. This sounded like a very bad, never ending high school one-sided tirade against Anna Nicole Smith.
Hearing a very formal English narrator completely threw me off and was absolutely unnecessary. Then, when Hogan begins narrating, it gets even worse because she's a poor narrator.
Please- save yourself time and a credit: do not get this audiobook.
