Hollywood Poker Home Game Organizer To Release Memoir
Molly Bloom Reportedly Hosted Games In L.A., Las Vegas, New York and Miami
Molly Bloom, the woman responsible for organizing and running high-stakes poker home games for Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes, will be writing a tell-all memoir about her experiences.
Bloom, dubbed the “poker princess” by her clients, reportedly hosted games in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami and New York for years “until it all came crashing down around her,” according to The Associated Press.
Bloom was among the celebrity names listed in a lawsuit by the former clients of Brad Ruderman, a man currently serving time in a Texas jail after being convicted of wire fraud and investment adviser fraud. Ruderman allegedly lost $25 million of investor money in the Hollywood home game.
Actor Tobey Maguire, an avid poker player who has made trips to the World Series of Poker, settled out of court last November, agreeing to pay $80,000 of the $311,000 he won in the home games.
Other stars who were rumored to appear in the games included Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Alex Rodriguez and Leonardo Dicaprio.
HarperCollins publisher It Books has reported that the untitled memoir is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2014.
