article imageCarrie Borzillo to be on reality show, raises suicide awareness

By Markos Papadatos     Aug 26, 2014 in Music
Acclaimed author Carrie Borzillo will be appearing on the third season of the reality television show, "Ex-Wives of Rock," on August 31.
She is a major supporter of World Suicide Prevention Day, and she is donating proceeds of her Nirvana book to suicide prevention charities in North America.
Borzillo noted her excitement for fans to see her on that show. She was the ex-wife of Chris Vrenna (from Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson). The show is narrated by Canadian Shannon Tweed, the wife of Kiss bassist and co-lead singer Gene Simmons.
She got her start early on in life as a rock journalist at age 17, in her home state of Connecticut, and was named "Music Journalist of the Year by NARIP (National Association of Recording Industry Professionals)" in 2009. She is the author of three sex, drugs and rock-and-roll books. Her first rock book, Eyewitness Nirvana: The Day by Day Chronicles has been reissued in several languages and countries over the past 14 years, including the latest collectors' edition, 2014's Nirvana: In The Words of the People Who Were There, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's tragic suicide on April 5, 1994.

She continues to promote her Nirvana book, in an effort to help spread awareness of suicide prevention. For National Suicide Prevention Week, which runs from September 7 to 13, and World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10, she is offering signed copies of her book for $15 (including shipping and handling) in the United States, with half of the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
For the Canadian market where Ex-Wives of Rock Season 3 is debuting, she is offering her book for $25 Canadian, with 50 percent of sales benefiting the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP).
While her books are available anywhere books are sold, the signed books for charity purposes can only be obtained on her website, by clicking here.
