Shania Twain has a book AND a show coming out, so she’s opening up about her troubled past and messed up marriage — you’ll never believe all the drama she’s been through.

It’s all the rage to write about your troubled past in a telling autobiography and Shania Twain is the latest to jump on the band wagon with her book, From This Moment On. If you haven’t heard about Shania’s trials and tribulations before, you’ll be shocked by all the craziness she’s lived through. For one, her husband left her for her best friend/assistant — but then she fell in love with her BFF’s ex-husband and married him!

The 45-year-old country music superstar told Oprah Winfrey about her tragic marriage, saying she begged her friend to find someone else to love.

“Why are you torturing me? Let it go, please,” she asked her former assistant in a letter. “Find love somewhere else from someone else.”

“I know it was pathetic,” Shania admitted. “But we all have pathetic moments. No one is above this type of low.”

In the book, Shania also talks about being physically, emotionally and sexually abused by her mom’s husband, her poverty as a child, her issues with self confidence and her throat condition that disables her from singing.

Not only did writing her memoir help her rediscover her voice, but Shania is also working through her issues on her new TV show that debuts Sunday on Oprah’s network, OWN.
