Below The Belt! How The Beautiful People Get Ahead? Casting Couch Confidential - Sexy! Stunning!
Bessie Bardot and Geoff Barker, both models themselves and the former managing team behind the highly innovative modeling agency, Bardot's Bodies, have lifted the lid on an industry where beauty is often only skin deep. Using their own experiences and anecdotes, as well as the accounts of a host of models, photographers and industry insiders, CASTING COUCH CONFIDENTIAL is a collection of the most mind-blowing real-life stories imaginable. These are authentic tales of people desperate for fame, who will do anything to get to the top?and the famous people at the top who do anything!
For ourselves, after ten years of modeling each, we decided to take a look at the other side of the business, the side that buys and sells the beauty. As models and actors we'd constantly heard whining at castings about how unfair the whole game was and the lack of respect that everyone felt the industry gave them. We thought we could do it better. Although we thought we were prepared for the ride, nothing could have prepared us for the shock of getting to know the underbelly of the modeling world close up. Many readers would not believe it unless they saw it, and only those of you who've been there could know the amazingly good and heartbreakingly bad times this industry manages to combine without blinking an eye.
Most of us could never even come close to guessing what really goes on behind the scenes of the glamorous, cut-throat industries of modeling and acting?
Now it's time to find out!
