Description

This explosive and historic must-have book will change the entire way readers view the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Written by relatives of Marilyn Monroe, the authors painstakingly unravel the myths that have suffocated her legacy for over 50 years. These myths have been regurgitated in biography after biography, depicting Marilyn as an orphan girl and leaving her expansive lineage out of the equation. The facts support that Marilyn was surrounded with family, and many members were upstanding citizens who contributed greatly to their communities. However, Hollywood, Marilyn's New York "friends," and her therapists insulated Marilyn in order to profit off of the ultimate "Cinderella Story." That story was the myth of Marilyn Monroe, which was created to suffocate the truth behind Norma Jeane Mortenson and her family history. It was eventually this forged fairy-tale path and this cast of characters that squeezed funds out of Marilyn Monroe, as well as the final breaths out of the legendary star. The heirs of the opportunists who fleeced Marilyn of both her life and earnings still garner monies through her name today.show more
