Let's Talk About Pep by Sandy Denton

She's 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 "Pepa" Denton — and she's never at a loss for words. Now, in her first tell-all book, Pepa talks about sex, music, life, love, fame, and so much more....

"Most of you know me as Pep, or Pepa, the fun-loving half of Salt-N-Pepa. I am the party girl, the one who is down for whatever. But behind the laughs and the smiles is a whole lot of pain."

Funny, fearless, and full of life, Sandy "Pepa" Denton is a pop culture icon whose remarkable story is every bit as captivating and provocative as her Grammy Award-winning music. This is the real Pepa — upfront, uncensored, unstoppable — and these are the memoirs of a true pioneer, fighter, survivor, and inspiration to women everywhere.

For the first time, Pepa talks about:

• Her troubled childhood

• Surviving abuse

• Her first encounters with Cheryl "Salt" James

• Salt-N-Pepa's instant success

• 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

Filled with surprising insights, outrageous anecdotes, and celebrity cameos — including Queen Latifah, Martin Lawrence, Janice Dickinson, Omarosa, Missy Elliott, L.L. Cool J, supermodel Caprice, Ron Jeremy, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez, "Spinderella," and many others — Let's Talk About Pep offers a fascinating glimpse behind the fame, family, failures, and successes of celebrity...and into the faithful heart of a woman who will always value the good friends she found along the way. In the words of Sandy "Pepa" Denton, "there's no walking away from that."

I read this book in 2009 2 times the first time I read it I could barely put it down. The second time I decided to re-read it to get all of the details that I may have missed the first time. This is one book that gives up a whole lot of information. She really opened up herself to us. I hope that she writes a part 2 and Salt writes a book let's talk about salt. The writer Karen Hunter did an excellent job she did not do what most writers do change the person so much that you think the book is fake. I am also gifted and I would really like to meet pep one day.

I grew up on Salt n PEPA!!! From the 80's up! I loved PEPA and I remember being 5 when push it came out and wanting to be just like PEPA! She had the energy and the skills!!! I've always loved her!!!! So when I seen she wrote a book I had to read it!!! Following her career for so long I knew most of the stuff but the personal of course I didnot know as the rest of the public. This book was amazing I read it in 1 day I couldn't put her book down! Her story is so relatable so many girls and women either have went threw what she has or is still going threw it. I luv this book!!!!!!

This book came across as very authentic. Pep definitely had an interesting life, and the book was honest enough to not recount her life through rose colored glasses. I would recommend this to a friend for subway, airplane, or vacation reading.

I thought it could have been the writing was child like it didn't grap me. I read better books and could have done without this one. It has some interesting parts and it's is a look inside her life as well as a up bringer which would be interesting to any fan but nothing to write home about.

The book seems small because I read the whole entire book in 2 hours but it is really easy but I'm not trying to say anything bad because it touching and if a person who hears her story and that same thing happend to them,they are not alone.I would recommend this book to my friends.

I read this book not really knowing what to expect. Well I reas this book within two days. If that does'nt say this book is good I dont kow what else to say. I read this book which is a true story and it made me think and realize alot of things that woman deal with and sometimes keep to ourselves. Well putting this information in a book, really changed the way I look at people and judge them and their situation. You really cant judge a book by its cover. This book was great!!! I told every woman I know about the book I kept it with me every where I went that's how I completed it so fast.

this book will be a good book. I am remarkably happy that she came out with a book, because I feel like she had alot to tell; and why not tell the world. Pep is a great woman and I wish the best for her. LOVE YOU.. A big fan..

I appreciate Pep being so candid about alot of things about what was really going on at that time. Alot of us have lived thru the Salt & Pepa days we tried to act and dress like them cause they were the only ones who had class at that time. So we all must thank Pep and appreciate the fact that she wanted to finally tell her story. Wish she could have told the Whole Story.
It was definitely worth it
