For two decades, Paula Yates was one of Britain's wildest celebrities who lived life on the edge. Now it's clear where she got it from, for her mother Helene Thornton's own turbulent life was one of extreme passions and heartache. In her controversial memoirs she reveals the secrets behind two fascinating, intense and unforgettable lives.When Helene's fairytale marriage to Jess Yates fell apart, she left with baby Paula in tow, throwing herself headlong into the lifestyle of the swinging sixties. Writing candidly about the fraught mother-daughter relationship, Helene remembers her anguish at Paula's unsettled childhood and early signs of mental illness. For the first time, she also discusses the circumstances that lead to the revelation that Paula's true father was Hughie Green, as well as giving unique insight to Paula's nine-year marriage to Bob Geldof and the bitter divorce battle.
