(HOLLYWOOD, CA. November 10, 2014) On Saturday December 6th at 3 pm, author Brandon James will be at the West Hollywood Library to discuss and sign “My Wild, Wild Life” the biography of legendary pin up, trick shot golfer, Sinatra girlfriend, and friend of Marilyn – the incomparable Jeanne Carmen.

Carmen, who passed in 2007, was one of the last great Hollywood broads, who was honored by being selected as the first subject of the long running E! True Hollywood Story series. She was a certified member of the Rat Pack – having dated Sinatra on and off for decades, and was a dangerously close friend of Marilyn Monroe.

“So many people think Jeanne’s story is all about Marilyn, it’s not. While I love Marilyn, I have to tell you – Jeanne’s life was far more interesting and eventful than Marilyn’s ever was.” – says Hollywood producer, Jeannine Madsen. “But the association is eternal because of their close friendship. You will never find an interview of Jeanne where she is not crying while speaking about Marilyn.”

“Jeanne was a captivating personality which is why so many greats were drawn to her,” says James, who is also the subject’s son. “I had no idea my mother had this wild life until one day, in my teens, I discovered boxes of photographs and she came clean about her storied past.” Carmen had left Hollywood after Marilyn’s untimely death, which she always, outspokenly, maintained was murder. Jeanne was forever indebted to Sinatra for protecting her. An intimate of Sinatra, and legendary mobster Johnny Roselli since the 40’s, many claim next to Ava Gabor – Carmen was the love of Sinatra’s life – and it is an oft spoken rumor that Sinatra is the one that ordered no one hurt her. “She was told if she didn’t leave town immediately, she would leave in a body bag” James continues “she left and started a whole new life and it wasn’t until the 80’s when biographers started to track her down did she put herself back in the spotlight.”

While her friendship with Marilyn may be the defining public perception of her, one shouldn’t forget her career as a top billed B-Movie Queen. “She is part of the Hollywood mythology – she is absolutely fascinating”, says celebrity biographer J. Randy Taraborelli (Call Her Miss Ross, Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness).

Prior to the B-Movies, Sinatra, the Kennedy’s, and Marilyn there was golf, “she was the first female trick shot golfer” says Golf Central. Jimmy Demaret, legendary golfer and winner of 31 PGA titles, called her “amazing”, bred her as a trick shot golfer and that’s what led her to Hollywood – and history.

“She was the Queen of the B-Movies and worthy of having a movie made about her”, says James. “How fortunate am I, as an author and to have a woman like this for a mother. Even if she weren’t my mother I would have felt compelled to tell this story.”

My Wild, Wild Lifechronicles her entire, and indeed, wild life.

Copies of My Wild, Wild Life will be available for purchase at the event.

Marilyn & Diana: Sex, Lies & Murder! What They Knew! Why They Died!

August 10, 2014

This explosive new special report — just published in a special edition magazine by the National Enquirer — blows the lid off the evil web of lies that have surrounded the deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana for decades.

Both were MURDERED – and The ENQUIRER has uncovered top-secret official documents, diaries and tapes that tell you why!

MONROE’S LITTLE RED BOOK: SHE WROTE IT ALL DOWN: Mobsters, gay trysts & orgies with the Kennedy’s

Some experts on the screen siren’s life and death have suggested [Chicago Mob Boss Sam] Giancana — or even FBI director J. Edgar Hoover — wanted Monroe’s ledger to gain political influence. They’ve suggested that shadowy power players snatched the journal after Monroe’s death or even killed her for it!

Certainly, the Kennedy clan had the most to lose if Marilyn opened her mouth. Both JFK and Bobby Kennedy were bedding the blonde bombshell and were to officials in the U.S. government.

While JFK was said to be very careful about engaging in pillow talk with his bedmates, Monroe did manage to pick up tidbits of political gossip and inside information, the friend added.

The president’s curvy mistress found most of the talk “boring” but did write down his snappy comments about other world leaders, which would have proved very embarrassing if made public.

“Marilyn told me her diary was her closest friend and constant companion,” her pal said. “She’d write in her book every day – and sometimes more than once. She’d leave it lying around her house like it was nothing.”

Another friend JEANNE CARMEN, revealed she witnessed RFK waiting for the superstar to get dressed when he “saw a little red book on the coffee table, looked through it and seemed to get upset.”

Says Carmen, “When Marilyn came out of her room he asked, “What’s this?” She said, “That’s my diary.” And he said “Get rid of it!”

And yet another pal said said the actress told him the diary was her “insurance policy.”

Investigators claim desperate Monroe tried to play her trump card when Bobby threatened to break off their affair a few weeks before she died. She told him she’d tell-all at a press conference – and back it up by producing her diary, which also noted times and places of ALL her romantic rendezvous.
