Overview

For the first time in the history of the iconic adult magazine Penthouse, the curtain is lifted on life in Bob Guccione's mansion. No One's Pet: The Autobiography of Sheila Kennedy reveals the inner workings of the media magnate's private sanctum. The tell-all Penthouse Pet book exposes a unique perspective on the free-for-all fun of a historically important period in pop culture. Beneath the glamorous surface of a Penthouse Pet's life in the mansion, lies a dark and often scandalous story.

With cameos by teen heartthrob Scott Baio and rocker Axl Rose, the two writers weave a true tale of celebrity shenanigans and sexual mischief. Featuring settings from Prince Jefri of Brunei's palace to NY Met's Ron Darling's bachelor pad. From a brief encounter in the NYC club scene with actor Michael J. Fox as he prepared for Bright Like Big City, to outrageous shopping sprees on Madison Ave, Sheila's journey is the most authentic recounting of the notorious 1980s decade of debauchery and gluttony.
