Supermodel Janice Dickinson’s over-the-top quest for Mr. Right is a hilarious rollercoaster of famous names, outrageous stories, and vicarious thrills.
The inimitable, outrageous Janice Dickinson—America’s first supermodel and the bestselling author of No Lifeguard on Duty and Everything About Me Is Fake... And I’m Perfect—now serves up her most scintillating kiss and tell-all yet in Check, Please! Loaded with uncensored dish on her dating sagas and her stranger-than-fiction bedroom adventures, Check, Please! shows Dickinson as a real life Samantha Jones, and three decades at the top of the fast-track, glamorous world of modeling have given her a wealth of juicy stories.
Dickinson dissects nearly 100 dates over a 25-year span—each one more jaw-droppingly outrageous than anything Jackie Collins could dream up. (There’s the Big Pharma billionaire, for example, who blurts out his fantasy of having Swarovski crystals shoved in every orifice before they’ve finished the first course of their first date—a declaration that forces Dickinson to quickly abandon the fantasy of “free botox forever” that he’d inspired in her.) Dickinson’s dates also reflect the changing times and the evolution of what she’s looking for in a man. From the unfettered hedonism of the 80s, a decade spent in white-hot one night stands and steamy affairs, to her heightened desire to find Mr. Right during the 90s, to her current state of play, Check, Please! is a fun, over-the-top vicarious thrill ride—with a core that’s highly relatable.
