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.
If you could pinpoint one wife of a rocker who has known how to fend off determined grupies over the years, it would be the wife of Gene Simmons from KISS. Now actress and one-time Playboy Playmate's Shannon Tweed-Simmons experiences with backstage bimbos have inspired a new video game app called 'Shannon Tweed's Attack of the Groupies' that's available now for the iPad and iPhone.
Attack of the Groupies came about after a chance meeting Tweed-Simmons had with Gogii Games president George Donovan, who liked her off-the-cuff idea for a game that would feature her killing groupies.
"It's something I've always wanted to do, is just take something and just blow 'em away, and this is a chance to do that without actually hurting someone," she declares.
Attack of the Groupies features the animated likenesses of Tweed-Simmons and her daughter, Sophie, as they try to keep a variety of obsessed female fans away from Gene.
"Each groupie has their own sort of special powers or they might be able to leap over a weapon, so the players will select the weapons and use them to repel the oncoming hordes," Shannon explains about the game.
As for the types of groupie characters features, Tweed-Simmons says, "There's a crazy cheerleader type, who will keep going forward no matter what, and then there's the ones where they've been groupies for a million years and they are not as attractive as they used to be." Regarding, the latter variety, Shannon notes that "when we throw weapons that take off their makeup or ruin their hair, they run screaming away, and it's just funny because they weren't that great looking in the first place."
Tweed-Simmons and her daughter both did voice-overs for the game, as did Shannon's sister Tracy, who sometimes can be seen with the Simmons clan in their A&E reality series Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Gene, meanwhile, can be seen lurking "in the shadows" while his wife and daughter try to "protect" him from the attacks.
Attack of the Groupies can be downloaded for free at www.itunes.apple.com while a more in-depth version and an extra level featuring Tracy Tweed costs an additional 99 cents.
