Also, I love stories about beautiful women. I read this book in less than hours. She ignored Calvin Klein's comment, "models aren't supposed to think.
Her reflections on the past are littered with profanity, pointed observations about herself and others and even humor. Her ability to look back on her mistakes with fairly clear eyes lends her memoir a certain depth. But at least you can tell that Dickinson really is trying to examine her life and change it for the better. And that is truly refreshing.

Finish this book in 2 days and all the sleepless nights were worth it. It's not only about the glamorous life of a supermodel, it's about finding yourself and how to love yourself. Yes, of course I love the jawdropping stories about celebrities but what makes me love Janice is that she's being super bluntly honest and that she worked her ass off to reconcile with herself. I find it both entertaining and educating. Trust me, this memoir is not shallow at all.
I already had a pretty substantial 'thing' for Janice Dickinson before picking this up ANTM has never been the same without her ; I love her take-no-prisoners attitude and wicked sense of humour, and think she'd be the ultimate best friend, and this book definitely did not disappoint.

Starting with her appalling home life, through her getting the door slammed in her face early modelling days, right through to life at the top and the inevitable crash that comes with the party lifestyle, Janice is extremely candid about everything that has happened to her, the choices she's made and the people she's known.
Packed with more than enough gossip to keep the most voracious smut-hound satisfied, Janice writes the way she speaks, raucously funny and loud it seems odd to say that about someone's writing, but I could almost imagine her cackling next to me at some points of the book. Additionally, she is as brutally honest about herself as she is about the people around her which only left me admiring her even more. I see now that she's since written some other books, and I'll definitely be checking those out. View 2 comments. Jul 09, Kirsty Shark rated it really liked it.

Lifeguard on duty: White supremacist posts tied to Markham employee | Ricochet
The very first chapter, which addresses the horrific abuse Janice suffered from her Father, made me realise this story was going to have much more depth than I expected. Don't get me wrong there's still plenty of easy trashing reading here as Janice dishes the dirt on her outrageous diva behaviour, drug and alcohol fuelled antics and the sex she's had with a long list of rich and famous men. But what I really like I have to admit I picked this book up expecting it to just be an easy trashy read. But what I really liked about this book is that throughout it all Janice owns up to her weaknesses and takes an honest look at how and why she made some of the choices she did, particularly with regards to her childhood.

It might be a book that looks at a life of fame, beauty and excess, but at its core this book is about a woman learning to love and accept who she is despite her mistakes and despite the abuse she suffered. I like the balance of trashy humour yet brutal honesty and introspection and I'd recommend this book if that combination appeals to you.

May 22, Briana rated it really liked it. I've always been fairly indifferent when it came to Janice Dickinson, my only real knowledge of her coming from her time as a judge on American's Next Top Model. I didn't love her, I didn't hate her I didn't really care either way.
But this book just made me love her.

The writing is engaging and heartbreaking and frustrating. You find yourself watching her downward spiraling and just keep hoping that eventually she'll get it together. Her stories are hilarious, and the gossip-loving side of me I've always been fairly indifferent when it came to Janice Dickinson, my only real knowledge of her coming from her time as a judge on American's Next Top Model.
Her stories are hilarious, and the gossip-loving side of me loves all the stories about the famous men she slept with. Overall, it is a very well written book about someone who lead a pretty extraordinary life. Janice knows how to dish the dirt! I appreciate her candor and humor because she had quite the one-two punch upbringing as she starts the book out with that and always refers back to her dad, the "rat bastard," throughout the rest of the book.
She does not hold back with her feelings and with her life with celebrities Bruce Willis, Sly, Cosby, Christie Brinkley to name a few and all the famous fashion photogs of her day. This is what a celeb trashy bio should be. I love this woman! At times I wanted to shake her and tell her to stop messing up her life, but I loved the fact that she knew that anyway.
Coming through a nightmare childhood, Janice is strong, to-the-point and completely honest throughout this book. I'm not usually one for biographies, especially of a model - but I wouldn't have missed this one for the world. Jan 24, Lisa rated it really liked it. Janice has always been fascinating to me and this book really explains a lot. Janice shares a lot of herself and you can see why she is the way she is.
I actually have a lot of respect for her and everything she has been through. I recommend you give this one a shot! Let's just say now I know more about Liam Neeson's junk than I want to, and you'll never look at Sly Stallone the same way again. Celeb Trash Book Club scores another winner. Everything a celebrity tell-all should be. Candid and full of gossip How can anyone not like Janice Dickinson. She is sometimes brutally honest, very funny and candid. Very good light read. Nov 18, Kitt-e-kat rated it it was amazing. Don't judge me, it was surprisingly good.
Dec 26, Samantha rated it really liked it. I'm a fan of Janice so naturally I liked it. Interesting autobiography, but oh Janice, your antics never cease to amaze me. I don't watch Janice Dickinson's reality show; I wasn't even aware that she had one. I watched for all of five minutes maybe, just a blip on the radar, television background noise while I Wow. I watched for all of five minutes maybe, just a blip on the radar, television background noise while I was otherwise busy being domestic.
Of course I know who she is, because I'm infatuated with everything seventies. Besides the fact that I was spawned at the beginning of the 'Me' decade, some really cool stuff came out of that era.
Ziggy Stardust. Evil Knievel. The birth of the Godfather saga, and countless other great films. Oh, and the birth of the Supermodel. Janice was one of the first in an era where the most sought-after models were "All American" blue-eyed blondes. She wasn't as popular in the States as she was in Europe, but she was a workhorse with staying power.
Being that I am infatuated with the 70's and I had to take a break from all the death and dismemberment I've been reading about as of late, I bought a copy of her book, thinking it would be quick, light on-the-potty reading, full of fun gossipy tidbits about my favorite decade and all the beautiful people who were there. And it is gossipy and fun, but it was more than that. It's also about surviving her godawful childhood: the sexually and physically abusive father, the drug-addicted, absentee mother and her subsequent battle to overcome her own self-loathing, told in a brutally frank, no-bullshit voice.
As I read, I started to like her. Once I finished reading I had a complete reversal of opinion on Janice Dickinson. I know other women like her and I am completely in love with them: fiery, smart-mouthed, quick-witted, no-bullshit chicks. In other words, she's the kind of woman I'd be happy to hang out with. And yeah, I felt bad about that Muppet comparison. It was bitchy. I'm only classifying this as a "craptastic guilty pleasure" because I can't exactly file it away next to To Kill a Mockingbird.
She's not Harper Lee and this is not great literature. But, I'm impressed. She's a survivor and one tough cookie. Plus, the whole trailblazing thing just makes me admire her even more. Every "exotic" looking woman out there striking a pose and earning the cash for it should bow down to Janice. Dec 04, Ticky Sowdenham rated it it was amazing. Janice Dickinson hired one hell of a ghostwriter for this book.
It is one of the best celebrity memoirs I have read. It paints a vivid picture of Janice's family and her inner life and offers more detail than most celeb autobiographies. Whether that is a result of the ghostwriter's skill or Janice's gives-zero-fucks attitude, it really makes this book crackle. It also contains a scene in which Bill Cosby invites her back to his hotel room and she refuses him, a scene that she says Cosby's lawyer Janice Dickinson hired one hell of a ghostwriter for this book.
It also contains a scene in which Bill Cosby invites her back to his hotel room and she refuses him, a scene that she says Cosby's lawyers forced her to change. Supposedly, the original draft revealed the story of how Cosby drugged and raped her, but when his lawyers got wind of it they threatened her and the publisher. As a result, the scene in the book ends with Cosby giving her "the meanest look" she had ever seen.
Even without the full story, the book manages to show what an entitled, rapey individual Cosby is. If you are interested in the world of fashion, Studio 54, photography and Hollywood celebrities, this is a book you will enjoy. A funny , sad , slightly shallow look at the modeling world through the eyes of one of the best. Kept me turning pages. Oct 15, Christina rated it really liked it.
I had low expectations coming in to this book, but I was thrilled to find that the former supermodel has a sharp wit and a solid talent for setting up and describing scenes and personalities. The story of her rise to fame is as fascinating as it is familiar, and her brushes with other superstars are illuminating.
