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.

Bad. Just Bad.
What would have made Train Wreck better?
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.
What didn’t you like about Shannon Engemann’s performance?
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.
Any additional comments?
Please- save yourself time and a credit: do not get this audiobook.

All News Based
If you followed the story in the news and media, then basically you do not need to read the book. Anna's half sister just wrote about news accounts and spewed off dates the entire time. She based this book on media stories and really nothing else. Do not waste your time
