7. Dita Von Teese (Marilyn Manson): Famed burlesque performer Dita Von Teese (above) met Marilyn Manson in 2001. He proposed in 2004, and the couple wed a year later. Von Teese filed for divorce when she couldn't deal with Manson's alcohol abuse and his extramarital affair with actress Evan Rachel Wood, then 19. With dirt like this, why the hell wouldn't we want his first wife to spill her guts in a book?

6. Shanna Moakler (Travis Barker): Former Miss USA and Playboy model Shanna Moakler has a lot to write about. She's dated Billy Idol and Oscar de la Hoya, but her best-known public relationship is her marriage to Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Barker married Moakler in 2004, and the two have two children together. They divorced in 2006, and since then Barker and Moakley have been in an on-again/off-again relationship with claims of still being "madly in love with each other."

During his "off time" from his ex-wife, Barker was said to be dating hotel heiress Paris Hilton and singer Rihanna. Moakler got into a nightclub altercation with Hilton over her alleged relationship with Barker. Even though the couple did have a reality show in MTV Meet the Barkers, television only shows so much. This type of drama definitely deserves a book.

5. Kelis (Nas): Grammy-nominated R&B singer Kelis married Grammy-nominated rapper Nas in 2005, in a very public relationship due to both artists' successful careers. Nas even tattooed a sexy portrait of Kelis on his forearm, which was later covered up when the couple divorced in 2010 after having a child together the previous year. Today Nas pays Kelis $55,000 in monthly child and spousal support. Aren't you dying to know what went down in those five years?

4. Amber Rose (Kanye West): Although rumors are going around that model Amber Rose signed a $1 million contract to not speak of her 2-year relationship with superstar producer/rapper Kanye West, she denies such allegations. This blonde, nearly bald beauty was seen everywhere with West during the course of their relationship; she never spoke, she just sat there and looked gorgeous.

Rose is now dating Wiz Khalifa, but we want to know why she's been so quiet about her relationship with West. She brags about writing a book in the future but we have no clue what it will entail.
