Overview

At the age of twenty, Annie Bakes was earning a living as a model, working in the fashion capitols of Tokyo, Milan, Paris, and New York City. Then, in her hometown of Sacramento, California, she met "The Worm." Soon after they met, Dennis refused to let go - or to be let go. But that was all right with Annie. She was in love with a sweet, shy guy who was a bench-warming rookie for the Detroit Pistons. What followed was six years of lightning and thunder; where love was so blinding that it blurred the lines between devotion, obsession, sex, and violence. One night, while making love on the hood of their car, Dennis asked Annie to marry him. She said yes. Later, she gave birth to their daughter, Alexis, and life seemed full of promise. Then the gloves came off. Suddenly, "sweet and shy" no longer described Dennis. He became outrageous, the quintessential dirty-working showman of the NBA; changing bed partners as quickly as his hair color. The Rodmans would live together for months at a time, then Annie and Alexis would retreat to Sacramento for a rest from the insanity. Divorce was sure to follow. The world Annie had built with her unassuming lover spiraled out of control as he attained fame, fortune, and the adoration of millions of fans. Wrongly believing that she could change him, she would take him back time after time. Finally, Annie couldn't take the cheating, physical abuse, and broken promises and left him for good. Simultaneously, Dennis himself was devolving into a one-man media circus.
