You might think you know Brigitte Nielsen: Big Brother star, supermodel, ex-wife of Sylvester Stallone - but prepare to be surprised. Brigitte was once a shy recluse, shunned by school friends because of her impossible height and her unbelievably skinny looks. And in this book she charts her journey from troubled childhood in Denmark all the way to Hollywood. For the first time she reveals her fling with Arnold Schwarzenegger, her blacklisting from Hollywood and her attempt at suicide. She made her film debut in Red Sonja and for a while it seemed as if Brigitte Nielsen had everything. But in fact she had to struggle to overcome addicition, weight gain, abusive relationships and countless professional setbacks. Now a contented wife, mother and television star she describes her inspirational story. As someone who has experienced the highs of life as Hollywood royalty and the depths of despair, Brigitte has first-hand knowledge of how to retain your sanity and self-respect in the face of toxic relationship with toxic men.
