Profile Bio Text
Say what you want about Janice Dickinson, she doesn`t hold back. The Florida native -- a model and photographer whose work on both sides of the camera has graced the covers of most of the major magazines in the world has written a pretty candid book about her tumultuous life.
From her deeply troubled her relationship with her parents (her father beat her and sexually abused her older sister, as her mother stood by doing next to nothing to help her children) to her many problematic romantic relationships (she`s been married three times, and, it seems, dated half the heterosexual men in the fashion and entertainment industries) to her early struggle to succeed as a model and her battles with drugs and alcohol, Dickinson`s life has been packed with drama.
Dickinson left home in her teens to pursue a modeling career and found doors slammed in her face, because she was an exotic brunette at a time when all-American blondes were the rage. However, her persistence and drop-dead beauty won out and she went on to become a huge success, particularly overseas.
No Lifeguard on Duty charts her journey to the top, and the problems she encountered both along the way and after she attained success. It`s fairly typical celeb-bio stuff. The thing that makes it interesting is Dickinson`s complete candor. It`s no wonder so many of the people she encounters seem so enchanted with her. She has no fear of speaking her mind. Her reflections on the past are littered with profanity, pointed observations about herself and others and even humor.
