By the age of 20, Anicka Bakes was earning her living as a model in the fashion capitals of the world - Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and New York. Beautiful, wealthy, but still innocent in the ways of the heart, she met a sensitive and talented athlete on the rise named Dennis Rodman. The two fell in love. In seven tumultuous years, their daughter Alexis was born, Anicka suffered from a tragic car accident ending her modeling career, Dennis and Anicka married, and the two engaged in many vicious private and some very public fights. Dennis Rodman, as the money and fame poured in, was revealed as immature, manipulative, dishonest, and abusive to his wife and child. Instead of living in a happy family with a loving man, Anicka went through seven years of living hell.
In Worse than He Says He Is, you'll hear Anicka's story about the young man from the ghettos of Dallas who became one of the world's greatest professional athletes, master showmen, and outrageous cultural icons.
