Brooke Shields Plans Tell-All Memoir


Brooke Shields has lived most of her life in public, but there are still some details she’s kept private…until now. The model-actress-eyelash baldness sufferer is penning a memoir that will air some dirty laundry, specifically about her ex-husband Andre Agassi. Shields has already written two other books about her personal life, Down Came The Rain,  which was a look at her own battle with post-partum depression, and On Your Own, an advice book geared toward teens that she wrote when she was a young model and which sounds amazing, though it’s out of print. (After taking a look at its Amazon page, we so want a copy). Finally in this latest book, she’ll give us the good dirt we’ve been waiting for.

Shields explains that after Agassi’s own memoir, Open, came out last year, she realized his stories about their two-year marriage were very one-sided. One such anecdote was about Shields’ turn as a guest star on Friends. Agassi turned violent after he watched Shields lick Matt LeBlanc‘s hand in a scene, and he drove home in a rage eventually smashing several of his tennis trophies. Shields’ version of the story will pick up where his left off,  and she says “Does he mention I spent the next three years replicating those trophies? He doesn’t say that, does he? Of course not. That’ll be in my book!” What we’re more fascinated by is the fact that Joey Tribbiani inspired such rage. He was but a humble, sandwich-loving soap opera actor, he never meant any harm.

Andre Agassi: Surprise Methhead


In a new bombshell book, tennis star Andre Agassi reveals that he played a secret dangerous game off the court with a sometimes fatal opponent – crystal meth. Andre says that in the early 90s, he used the drug often: “I can’t speak to addiction, but a lot of people would say that if you’re using anything as an escape, you have a problem,” he says.

In addition to his drug use, Andre serves up quite a whopper about his other struggles in life: his hair loss, troubled marriage to Brooke Shields, and eventually finding love with current wife Steffi Graf. As for revealing his secret to the world, Andre says he has no regrets.  “I was worried for a moment, but not for long. … I wore my heart on my sleeve and my emotions were always written on my face. I was actually excited about telling the world the whole story,” he says. [Source: People; Photo: Getty Images]
