A new reality show 'Ex-Wives Of Rock' chronicling the highs and lows of the lives of four women who have led the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll life... and have survived to reinvent themselves premiered on August 31rd on the Canadian network Slice. The show follows video vixen Susan Dixon (ex-wife of Warrant bassist Jerry Dixon), Cherry Pie rock goddess Bobbie Brown (ex-wife of Warrant frontman Jani Lane), drummer and Tommy Lee’s sister, Athena Lee (ex-wife of Scorpions drummer James Kottak) and Sharise Neil (ex-wife of Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil).
'Ex-Wives of Rock' is co-produced by the former Femme Fatale frontwoman Lorraine Lewis and narrated by Shannon Tweed (wife of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons).
Throughout each episode, you will see all sides of the four ex-wives: the good, the bad and the ugly. You’ll witness family drama, messed up love lives and friendships crash and burn. We’ll see the glamorous red carpet events, the seedy rock clubs, the fabulous hotel lunches and the quiet dinners at home.
Being 'hair band groupies' is far in the past for these now late-thirties, early-forties ladies; but that doesn’t mean their rock ‘n’ roll days are over. Their journey begins where one life has ended and another one has just begun. They are Mothers. Business Owners. Partiers. And ladies of the L.A. lifestyle.
Meet each of the ladies and get a preview clip of the latest episode below:
Bobbie Brown, the ‘Cherry Pie’ video girl to release tell-all book, star in new reality series ‘Ex-Wifes Rock’
Bobbie Brown, most famous for her appearance in Warrant's 'Cherry Pie' video, is set to release a 248-page tell-all book in early 2013 via 4th Street Media. After winning a spokemodel competition on 'Star Search,' Bobbie landed on the Sunset Strip, eventually becoming a video vixen, and hooking up with th likes of Tommy Lee, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Slash, Dave Navarro and more. Here's a description of the book:
"Before American Idol there was Star Search. Before there were sex tapes, there were sexy videos. And before there was Pamela Anderson, there was Bobbie Brown. 'Sex, Drugs, And Cherry Pie' is the outrageous true story of a Louisiana beauty queen who became an L.A. Goddess, and the dozens of celebrity encounters, rock stars, and tumultuous affairs that followed - Tommy Lee, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Slash, Dave Navarro, and more. In 1989, America tuned in each week to hear Ed McMahon announce Bobbie Brown as their choice as Spokesmodel Champion. She soon landed on the Sunset Strip, and the dream girl seemed to be on her way to a dream life, taking Hollywood by storm as the ultimate video vixen in Warrant's infamous 'Cherry Pie' video. Her future seemed as bright as her smile, but the world of privilege and adoration was filled with demons, drugs, and a downward spiral of self-destruction. In 'Sex, Drugs, and Cherry Pie,' Bobbie takes us on a journey of debauchery, excess, fame, and hair products; detailing how touring the world with music royalty can sometimes lead down a rocky road towards redemption."
Brown has just finished filming a new reality television series titled 'Ex Wives Rock,' which debuts August 29th on the Slice network. The show is co-produced by Loraine Lewis (Femme Fatale) with narration by reality show vet Shannon Tweed-Simmons (Gene Simmons Family Jewels).
'Ex Wives Rock' features Brown, Athena Lee (ex-James Kottak of Scorpions and sister of Tommy Lee), Susan Dixon (ex-Jerry Dixon of Warrant) and Sharise Neil (ex-Vince Neil). During the course of the series, the cast spends time at locations including the Rainbow Bar & Grill on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip and Brown struggles with the passing of Jani Lane, who died during the filming of one of the episodes.
Tomorrow night, February 25th, an all-star jam band will open for Michael Schenker at the House Of Blues in Hollywood, CA.
