Jenni Rivera's Autobiography Reveals Star's Darkest Moment
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On a dark January night in 1997, in the backseat of a white sports car, Jenni Rivera’s life changed forever. It’s with this emotionally charged description of the rape that “shattered” her soul that La Diva de la Banda begins her official autobiography, “Unbreakable: My Story, My Way.” From this moment of vulnerability the Mexican-American singer narrates her journey through adversity and happiness, describing in detail some of her most traumatic experiences and revealing the identity of her only true love. Unafraid to bare her soul to her fans, Rivera recounts within the first five pages the scarring sexual assault that would always linger in her mind and made her feel defeated, as if she was no longer the strong-willed warrior she prided herself to be. After filming her first music video for “La Chacalosa,” the singer tells how three men in a white sports car chased her off a California highway. One of her attackers was a man whose advances she had rejected earlie ...

How could someone have sold over 20 million albums, be the most successful reality show for the network, have perfume, jeans and now serve as Executive Producer to a series of other hit (and soon-to-be hit) shows and be a virtual unknown to my friends and me? A strong female running an entertainment empire that's from my hood (the LBC, Long Beach, CA) and graduated from my high school (Long Beach Poly) and I don't know her? Blame the perceived cultural divide -- perceived because once bridged, most find there is no divide at all. And Jenni Rivera is bridging that gap constantly with everything she does. Her Mun2 show I Love Jenni is a runaway success, becoming the most successful reality TV show of the network. Not content to have musical success in just the Latin America w ...

His early season troubles reached a nadir on April 29 when he gave up 10 runs in two innings to the Kansas City Royals, who had the worst record in baseball at the time; the game was not official since it was later rained out, or his statistics would have been even worse.
