But if you want a truer picture of who she is, take a look at what she has accomplished in her more recent history. Rebecca is an author. Her book Roadmap to Redemption, the first of...

An Open Letter to Russell Brand

Much of what you declare about porn on your Trews podcasts has my cohorts and me nodding in affirmation. You see, we have been fighting this battle...
