Brooke Shields Talks Andre Agassi


I don't think that Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi will be exchanging Christmas cards this year. Brooke gave an interview to Easy Living and was asked about Andre's book. In his book he had talked about his use of crystal meth and also how he should have never married Brooke. At the time the book was published he said that Brooke had approved what he had written. Brooke says no. When asked whether she had given her approval, she said, "No, he made me sit in a room with his ghost writer and read what his writer had written. And of course he wouldn't change anything I remembered differently, so I was like, why did I read it then? So you can tell everybody, 'She read it'? Which means, 'She's put her stamp of approval on it'? I didn't put my stamp of approval on anything. It wasn't what I remembered. You also can't write a book and ask for people's sympathy, it just doesn't work like that. I mean, I don't know why he wrote the book. I'm not sure he's gotten the reaction he hoped for."

Hello Brooke Shields. She sounds a little miffed doesn't she?

I'm impressed at her candor actually. I expected a canned response from her.

hey, enty, your site is being hi-jacked. I'm getting re-directed.

I have their autographs together when I saw them at a restaurant in Vegas. He signed his full name and then said "what about my wife?" and she wrote "+ Brooke"...I thought that was so sweet.

I haven't read his book yet, but did he say anything bad about her? I thought he admitted to being an ass to her and to her co-workers on her sitcom?

zandra said...

I don't blame her for being angry, it was a self serving book, and frankly I would trust her memories over some meth head, spoiled, drinking brat. Brooke has always been as straight as they come. Also, honest to the point of painful in terms of her mother. I'm thinking Andre lied or misremembered a lot of their time together.

RocketQueen said...

What zandra said.

Yeah, Andre the meth head misremembered. I don't blame her at all. I can only hope he ends up with a colostomy bag like another meth head I know. Karma at it's best.

Jess said...

I agree with Zandra and MyGeorgie.

He and Brooke divorced without children, and their divorce was fairly quiet. They have both been in the public eye since childhood, so it seemed like they worked hard to keep it private. But what would be Andre's motivation for trashing her now? They are both re-married w/ families. Maybe he was trying to sell books. I think it's a jackass move anyway. And I think Andre had much more of a drug habit than he's admitting to.

Sherry said...

I felt so bad for Brooke during their divorce. I saw her being interviewed and she was just barely holding it together. At the time it was being said that she was bad luck and he was going through a losing streak based solely on their marriage. How sad.

Andre Who?

Brooke Sheilds? Hells Yeah!

shazzzba said...

HE TOLD HER HE DIDN'T WANT KIDS...NOT WANTING KIDS WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL WOMAN...
I DIDN'T READ THE BOOK...BUT I REALLY WONDER WHAT HE ACTUALLY REMEMBERED AND WHATS PURE FICTION...ALL THOSE DRUGS AND HE REMEMBERS...SURE HE DOES..

Gretchen said...

I wonder what she disagreed with?

She seems to have always been a class act. A friend of mine used to take an exercise class with her, and said that Brooke stayed in the back and used to help this older woman with it. That just sounded sweet.

__-__=__ said...

I don't think he trashed her at all. I think he just misremembered most everything and that's what she's aggravated about. Especially when they wouldn't correct anything.

califblondy said...

Check out Andre's hand...weird

Robert said...

Brooke has turned out incredibly well despite the fishbowl she was raised in almost from infancy. If she had developed ala Naomi Campbell, that would have been less surprising. Although I haven't read it, I'll bet, like most (ex-)drug addicts, Andre is misremembering his history, minimizing the damage it did and his particpation in it.

I'm with zandra and rocketqueen on this one.

Am I remembering this wrong or wasn't it rumored she stepped out on him for some other guy? Clarify! haha

Amy said...

I read Andre's book, and while things can be mis-remembered, I think I'm on Team Andre here...

E. DuBois said...

The book was totally a self-serving enterprise (which I suppose most books, especially autobiographies and memoirs are) HOWEVER, Agassi behaves as if this book is some kind of public service and it is not. Unless by public service means his own fat bank account. Please.

And I think the way he behaved at the charity event with Pete Sampras and Federer and Nadal there was totally ridiculous. Maybe he thinks his charity works balance the scales? Whatever. Team Brooke!

Paisley said...

I read his book. They should never have gotten married in the first place. He admitted that he was a jerk when she filmed her Friends cameo, but he was pretty dismissive of actors and their work. Kathy Griffin's book mentioned that Brooke's current husband was visiting the Suddenly Susan set when she was still married. I guess there were People magazine articles about rumors of an affair? I don't remember. But Andre's book doesn't mention infidelity at all, so if it happened, he didn't write about it.

They should both be happy that they've moved on with people that share their interests.

LOVE Brooke Shields. I found her episode of Who Do You Think You Are to be a little obnoxious, though. "oooh! Look at me! I'm so happy I'm related to French Royalty!"

warmislandsun said...

Totally Team Brooke.

Basil said...

I think Brooke is fairly classy and has turned out extremely well given her childhood, so I am curious to know what she disagreed about in the book. I haven't read it, but if he slammed her in it I am sure it would have made news.

sandman said...

never been a brooke fan, she never gave me a reason, but agassi has always been a very spoiled little cunty self absorbed pussy...plus he walks like a fucking fruit & talks like a baby....i really think his problems come from being a closet cocksmoker that hasn't come to that conclusion yet.

vess said...

He is nice to her in his book, although it's clear they have nothing in common.
But in one of his interviews he said about Brooke: "There were some harsh truths, but I tried to turn a harder lens on myself."
Maybe there are still some bad things about Brooke, he didn't say.

Caroline said...

I can't stand Brooke Shields. I think she is a terrible actress. I have no opinion on him except he is quite an athlete to have a meth addiction and play at the level of tennis he did.
