The true story of “Hollywood’s Poker Princess” who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all
Molly Bloom’s story is eerily familiar to Piper Kerman’s (Orange Is the New Black). The exception being Molly owns her misstep, nonetheless I’m confident Molly’s book deal, and I’m sure a movie or TV series of her story will be on the horizon all enabling her to erase her debts and manage a lucrative profit. Another convicted felon turning their misfortune into a windfall.
Molly a sheltered small town gal from Colorado, raised by loving parents, privileged, educated, ventures to LA and finds herself lured by money, mystique and celebrities as she plays hostess in high stakes poker games, soon commandeering the games on her own.
Rather than relying on her brains and legitimate success, Molly feeling inadequate to the achievements of her siblings decides to pursue the ‘gray’ area of illegal poker games. Making a name for herself, a boatload of money, the ‘Poker Princess’ falls hard.
If you enjoyed Piper Kerman’s self serving memoir, you’ll adore Molly’s tale. Similar to Piper’s book, the writing is less than mediocre.
