Tommy Chong's Ex-Publicist Releasing Book

LAS VEGAS, NV, March 04, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hollywood Under the Covers is an intriguing world of sex, drugs, scandals, and the downside of fame due to hit the book shelves March 19. The print version and eBook are available now worldwide at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Diesel eBooks, and other online booksellers.

Hollywood Under the Covers is a rare look inside the seductive entertainment industry. To the outside world, Hollywood is portrayed with glamour, riches and fame--but to insiders, it's a cold, dark, scandalous place, where survival is not about basic instinct but the people you're sleeping with. The book exposes the erotic side of four Hollywood moneymakers, openly revealing how nothing is safe in the hands of greed. A powerful talent agent, the Mistress of Romance, two superstars, and Hollywood's biggest and best-kept secret breeds a scandalous world of betrayal.

What readers are saying about the book:

"When reading Brandie Knight's book Hollywood Under the Covers, she brought me into the underbelly of Hollywood's celebrity elite and their own personal deals with the devil. A real sexy page turner, I held it up with one hand while the other didn't want it to end," Warren Durso, Movie & TV Producer, The Vine Studio.

"One of the best books that I have ever read! It's brilliant! I couldn't put it down," Kilo Bones, Facebook, United Kingdom.
After twenty years in the entertainment industry, Knight is writing about her encounters in a fictional environment. During her career, Knight has created and produced a television pilot, two radio shows, an entertainment magazine, and the co-producer of the award-winning documentary, a/k/a Tommy Chong.

"Fiction seems mild compared to what I have been exposed to, experienced, and witnessed," Knight proclaims about living in the celebrity-obsessed culture.

Cheech & Chong on WWE RAW=Pathetic

I'm a huge Cheech & Chong fan, but their appearance on WWE RAW was pathetic.  No one under 40 cares about them and the stupid stoner cereal-eating bit was stupid.  It makes you embarrassed to be a Cheech & Chong fan.

Here are some random clips with Cheech wearing a ridiculously fake moustache.

This was career suicide.

And watch this.
