New York, NY - Pepa is the spiciest ingredient in the legendary rap group Salt-N-Pepa, and the outspoken star of VH1’s smash-hit reality show. She’s Sandy “Denton”—she’s never at a loss for words. Now in LET’S TALK ABOUT PEP (VH1/Pocket Books; September 2008), she bares all, telling her side of the story and leaving no detail unturned-- with the true candor and raw emotion of someone who has been there, done that, and survived.
For the first time, Pepa talks about her troubled childhood, surviving abuse, her first encounters with Cheryl “Salt” James, her failed marriages and her escape from domestic abuse, her “breakup” with Salt and their eventual “reunion”, her triumphant comeback on the VH1 reality shows The Surreal Life, Fame Games, and The Salt-N-Pepa Show, and more.
This is the real Pepa—upfront, uncensored, unstoppable—and this is the memoir of a true pioneer, fighter, survivor, and inspiration to women everywhere. Written with New York Times bestselling author Karen Hunter, the book is filled with surprising insights, outrageous anecdotes, and celebrity cameos—including an introduction by Queen Latifah and an epilogue by Missy Elliott. LET’S TALK ABOUT PEP is the story of a pop culture icon whose remarkable life is every bit as captivating and provocative as her Grammy Award-winning music.
To accommodate the book, Pepa has launched her very own social network and online fan club at www.LetsTalkAboutPep.com. The site allows old school hip-hop fans to connect with each other, and stay up-to-par with her latest happenings. Users can join for free and interact with related news, blogs, forums, events, groups, photos, and video. The site is powered by Connect Platform, an exclusive service of Lee Moss Media.
