Books Penned by Celebrities You Must Read

I was blessed again this year receiving a few books from Santa. This year I was given “Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me” by Chelsea’s family and friends and “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)” by Mindy Kaling.

Santa typically brings me a few books every year. I figure he probably thinks one of two things:

1. She really needs to learn how to read.

2. Someone give this girl something productive to do besides dancing around her room all day.

So I have decided to share with you my favorite books written by celebrities.

‘How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale’ – Jenna Jameson

I’ll be honest, I picked up this book solely because of the title. As you should know, Jenna Jameson is a porn queen. Hey, a girl has to pay the bills somehow.

Jenna’s real name is Jenna Marie Massoli and that is one of the billions of things she reveals in her autobiography.

Even though I was slightly disappointed that it was a more biographical story then a guidebook, Jenna did us ladies a solid and gave us her ten commandments of dating and sex! My favorite: pineapple does a world of good.

From reading this book, I learned that Jenna has had a tough life and that’s putting it lightly. From abusive boyfriends, debilitating drug addictions and crawling her way to the top of the porn industry, Jenna has had quite the ride so far.

One of my favorite parts of the book was her tryst with the one and scary Marilyn Manson. I recall Jenna saying that Manson was a fan of “the C word” and by C word, she meant cuddle. Who would have thunk it?

If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Jenna’s book, Oprah comes to the rescue again and provides the first chapter on her website. I’m warning you now, you’ll probably have to buy the book immediately after…it’s just that good.

I have read my share of biographies and at almost 600 pages, I finished this tale in about 2 weeks. That’s a personal best. I also gave this bible, I mean book to anyone that wanted to borrow it, even strangers. See, Jenna brings people together and not just in a creepy porn way.

Jenna – Thank you for sharing your story. If you ever need a friend to go to a pole dancing class…I can be ready in 6.7 minutes.

  1. I’ve read Jenna’s book twice. I am in the adult industry and she inspires me. She is my hero. I’m always bashed by others, have had a rough life and am just looking to find my niche in the world and reach my own goals. This book was very touching, motivational, funny and at times sad. But really shows what a strong and wonderful woman she is. Does she have any more books or just wrote that one?

    Interesting. I was suprised to see you endorse Jameson’s work – her literary work – but I’ll have to give it a look-see now.

      Career directions is a personal choice. There was nothing illegal, as Ms. Jameson was of legal age when she was an adult film performer. However, her book was a very interesting insight into her life, the adult film industry, sharing the fact that she was sexually assaulted at a very early age. I found the book to be very frank, honest and even though I have never met Jenna, she seems to be warm-hearted, caring and a devoted mother to her twin sons. I’m a judgmental person, what so ever.

    • It will completely change your view on Jenna

    I believe I made a typo on my earlier response. I am NOT a judgmental person. Hope I was able to clear that up.

    I agree with above comment by”karibestrycki”.
