Product description

Product Description

It began as the classic rags to riches story of a girl who escaped a life of misery to attain accidental fame and fortune in the United States.

But what happened to the girl when the American dream became a living nightmare?

Jeanie Clarke, who shot to wrestling stardom as Lady Blossom, reveals all in this frank account of her individual rise, fall and retribution, and struggles to sustain a family with a husband who was driven to become the greatest wrestling star the world had ever known.

For years, she suffered in silence to survive personal tragedy, the pressures of fame, and drug addiction: a self-destructive lifestyle that spiralled out of control.

This uncompromising autobiography exposes the dark nature of the substance abuse culture which gripped the entertainment industry, examining the consequences to a broken family that it created.

It is a detailed account of her highs and lows during a lifetime in the wrestling business, and the ultimate cost it had on those around her.

This is a story of personal survival that remained unknown... until now.

About the Author

Jeanie Clarke is a former entrepreneur, model, and professional wrestling valet from Southend-on-Sea, England. She is most famous for her appearances with Joint Promotions on ITV's World of Sport, the United States Wrestling Association, and World Championship Wrestling, where she performed under the name Lady Blossom. In 1991, Clarke decided to retire from wrestling to concentrate on her family life, and married Steve Austin two years later. She famously came up with his 'Stone Cold' persona, developing an edgy character which drove the professional wrestling industry to unforeseen heights. Jeanie remained close to the industry during the boom period of the 'Attitude Era' of the World Wrestling Federation, before returning to the United Kingdom in 2001. Despite achieving success in business and entertainment, her greatest accomplishments were to raise her children and to survive a seventeen-year addiction to drugs. Today, Jeanie focuses on making public appearances to share her incredible life story. Bradley Craig is a Chartered Architect and professional wrestling historian, based in the United Kingdom. Born in Aberdeen, he founded The Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame for Scotland in 2015, and is active in the research and ongoing cultural preservation of the sport. He has contributed written articles to a number of international magazines on the subjects of architecture and professional wrestling, and is a member of various institutions which honour the rich history of both industries.
