Rita Cosby - Blonde Ambition--Book Review

Title: Blonde Ambition
Author: Rita Cosby

First book I finished reading this 2014! yay! :)

This is the untold story of the events that led up to Anna Nicole Smith's death in 2007. As a Pop-Culture geek, and some sort of a fatalist, when I came across this book, I realized that I really had to buy it because I always like getting an inside look regarding these mysterious Hollywood Deaths. 

Anna Nicole's death affected me in such a way that back then, it really opened up my mind to what drugs can do to someone. She was trying to get her life back, but people around her were vicious, and yes, she really fell into the perils that greed, loneliness and despair can bring. 

This book was written well and is a fast-paced read. I barely like non-fictional books because they bore me but this one was very effective. It was written with the help a series of investigations, and is something that will help you understand what happened to Anna Nicole Smith. It's shocking, it's poignant, and it's albeit disturbing, but worth reading.

Whether or not you were a fan of the deceased model, this book is worth spending your time on.

  1. Author of Blonde "Ambition" Rita Cosby was sued for libel in 2007 because she did not verify the sources for her book and she tried to bribe the Haitian nannies to confirm that sex tape beetwen Stern and Birkhead did exist. The lawyer for the nannies Liz Thompson called Cosby a liar.The whole book was based on lies created by Smith's estranged mother Virgie Arthur, her lawyer John O'Quinn and their private investigators Don Clark and Wilma Vicdomine. Virgie desperately wanted to obtain custody of Smith's heiress daughter and created wild allegations about Birkhead and Stern. New York Federal judge Denny Chin called them liars. Not to mention convicted criminal Mark Hatten and his sister Jackie who had hurt Smith while she was alive and sold Smith's underwear, belongings in order to make a quick buck. Mark Richmond Hatten spent six years in state prison because he attacked Smith and her neighbor Rene Navarro with a knife. The federal libel lawsuit against Cosby was settled in 2009 after judge Denny Chin determined that book was fake.
    You should get a proper information about the Cosby's book of lies and smut before you write a review... or maybe Rita Cosby's PR is at it again.
