According to the book, the Nebraska-native details the horrific incident where after going swimming, the 18-year-old son of her parents’ friends forced her to touch his erection in a laundry room. The scary episode left the model “with so many lingering questions.”

In the tell-all, the Vogue cover girl also opens up about the verbal abuse she received from modeling execs and from her own father. During one event in her past, both her dad AND a Ford Models agent felt she needed to lose weight. The memory still stings the 29-year-old to this day.

Additionally, Ashley opens up about using cocaine and Ectasy when she first moved to New York. During her second year in the Big Apple, her substance abuse made her miss a flight to a modeling job, which almost caused her to be fired from her agency.

We applaud Ashley for her honesty, and we think it’s so brave of her to tell her story!
