Ahh yes, the ultimate attention whore. Who gives a rat's ass about some minging chick who's so desperate for the spotlight she first goes on Big Brother, then pops up wherever there is a camera, and then writes a book about her attention-whoreness? No surprise that this one goes unfinished. I probably wouldn't get passed the 'This book is dedicated to...' page.
