HeidiWorld: The Heidi Fleiss Story

4.7/5

Critic Rating

How ambitious LA girl Heidi Fleiss rose to become a “Hollywood Madam” in the early 90s, and how she fell at the hands of American sexual hypocrisy. A kaleidoscopic look at sex, drugs, glamour and corruption in Los Angeles.

"...while the series is a little baggy, it’s titillating and salacious - how can you resist?"

Lauren Passell • Podcast The Newsletter Apr 25, 2022

"If you’re a fan of Karina’s storytelling on You Must Remember This, if you love the dishiness of Hollywood and unknown stories about Hollywood’s biggest names, you’ll love Heidiworld. Even if you hate Hollywood, you’ll enjoy this smart look at American culture told through the story of Heidi Fleiss..."

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Apr 14, 2022

"HeidiWorld conducts itself as a largely straightforward historical accounting, with Lambert serving as an active, opinionated narrator. The execution has been a little rough in practice so far — Lambert’s narration could be tighter, the script could be neater — but her treatment of Fleiss’s story is intriguing. It fits neatly into the blended vibes of the ’90s revival and a reconsideration of women from the era that we seem to be bouncing around in these days."

Alexi Duggins • The Guardian Apr 7, 2022

"It’s incredibly detailed – potentially too detailed at first, with the opening episode full of information on her childhood."
