Marilyn Monroe: Confidential. Lena Pepitone has admitted that this book was fabricated. Lena Pepitone and William Stadiem. So please do not take everything in it as truth. It portrays Marilyn in a very bad light. Back in the late Seventies I’d read Guiles and Mailer and Murray and was eager for more. And if this was the real thing, a true glimpse inside Marilyn’s life, I couldn’t wait to get home and indulge.

Marilyn Monroe Confidential book. Offers information on the last 6 years of her life, including her marriage to Arthur Miller, the making of Some Like It Hot, a notorious affair with Yves Montand,her addiction to sleeping pills and alcohol, and her early expieriences as a struggling actress.

Marilyn Monroe Confidential. by Lena Pepitone and William Stadiem. This book, written by Marilyn Monroe's seamstress/maid, who spent almost every waking hour with the star during the last six years of her life, is a true find. To find out that Marilyn was a "bastard" child whose mother abandoned her was astonishing.

Another old book entitled Marilyn Monroe Confidential gave a very revealing portrait of how life was for Marilyn at home. The book received a lot of criticism because of the private and shocking information revealed in it by Marilyn’s so-called friend, Lena Pepitone, her maid and seamstress from 1957-1962. At home, she was often depressed and unkempt. In an interview, Lena Pepitone told William Stadiem that Marilyn Monroe didn’t like to wash her hair or bathe regularly but was obsessed with keeping her hair dyed blonde. She also hated underwear, which would sometimes lead to messy bed sheets during certain times of the month. by Lena Pepitone, William Stadiem. Coauthors & Alternates.

Well, I have read many books on Marilyn ( check out BBC vid on Youtube Marilyn on Marilyn) and found the book poorly written. It was ok, but could have been better. It just seems to add info to fill the gaps, things that Marilyn probably never told Lena, but to make the book 'flow' was added. Anyway, most of the details, already knew. And yes, like other reviewers, found some parts hard to believe. Gave birth..really? Don't you think Marilyn would have fought tooth and nail to get that child back??? Come on. What about stretch marks on her tummy?You know she would have!!! Anyway, I did feel like I knew Marilyn better after reading this book. Some oddities too; Hugo was a basset hound not a shepard, the Cadillac was black, not white,..etc. Accuracy is important, since it makes other details suspect later on. And the Kennedy affairs/meetings are documented in other later books, so Marilyn was lying to Lena. Why did Lena want to get back into Marilyn's apartment??? Maybe to get some souveniers, to sell? I am suspicious of her motives, along with this book and possible sensationalism. I just felt so much was left out, Lena was not telling all she knew. Would I write something like this about my best friend? Jose Bolanos, she loved? More like a temporary stand-in for parties. Hard to imagine her thinking of marrying him, but hey, she was Marilyn! Anyway, most of this book is covered in more recent biographies, which I recommend highly.

I originally read this book when it came out and felt it was an outstanding view of the day to day life of Marilyn during her Arthur Miller/NYC years. The information and perspective was from her personal maid and was refreshingly free of the conspiracy theories, etc that blight many of the Marilyn Monroe biographies. This is to be recommended for all fans of Marilyn.

"Confidential" is explosive and shocking. How could America's most beloved and remembered sex symbol behave this way?! Most likely, she didn't. Pepitone came out about 15-20 years ago to say that the book was a load of exaggeration that was written to sell copies. Marilyn had trust issues, that has been very well documented. Why would she trust her maid who could barely speak English with her most guarded secrets? If the stories are true, why would Pepitone release this book about someone she considers a dear friend who had such a tragic death? Money and 15 minutes of fame will do that to a person and this book is sadly proof. While I do believe that some things very easily could have happened (Marilyn walking around naked - A LOT), it's hard to distinguish between fact and fiction. Her marriage to A. Miller was rocky, yes, but I don't think she was yelling at him for taking Pepitone away from her for 5 minutes to mend his pants. I would recommend this book to someone who has a solid understanding of Marilyn and has read multiple biographies so that you can distinguish between fact and fiction. While no one can truly capture Marilyn (and those who possibly could have since passed on) it's most likely more accurate than this little book. Great read (you will be enthralled) but most likely 90% false.

Lena Pepitone is given a rare and unusual challenge when she takes up residence with the legendary Marilyn Monroe.At first Lena is daunted by the enormity of taking care of one of the world's biggest stars but soon realises that her new employer is all too human. Marilyn is tormented by doubts and insecurities but eventually trusts Lena enough to share with her, some of the most challenging and intimate personal traumas.

Bought it for a friend. I can't imagine wasting my time on it.
This was a good book, I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to other Marilyn Monroe fans to read.
