Frankie Lyons has conquered Reality TV, thanks to her stint on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab, and now she is poised to bless the publishing world with a new memoir detailing all the salacious details of her very troubled life.

“The Best Years I Never Had”, will take readers on a graphic journey from an abandoned childhood to the streets of sleaze and prostitution. And the main course on the menu of contents will be her lifelong struggle with drug abuse.

The mother of seven hopes her life story will inspire other women who have or are leading lives of desperation and hopelessness to believe they can survive the depths of the murky waters and rise above triumphantly despite all the odds.

Wonder how daughter and singer Keyshia Cole feels about having her mother’s dirty laundry hanging out to dry for all to see.

Regardless, Lyons is moving full steam ahead with trying to pretty up her image and gain an accessible following. Perhaps this new book that hits stores Jan. 24th will be the springboard to other engaging projects.

    @African Mami: Lol. Plenty of people take writers seriously, and those same people know which writers NOT to take seriously. The writing world (like film and music) is inundated with celebrity-obsessed b.s. at the moment. Pretty much anyone can be a writer now. But any lover of art with discerning tastes knows how to find the good/quality stuff.

    I don’t know what publishing house published this book, but I will say that this is yet another reason why I don’t take traditional publishing (through a publishing house) seriously – just like I don’t take Hollywood or the music industry seriously.

    All the good stuff is independent/underground nowadays.
