Getting The Pretty Back - another celeb turns author

I love celebrity gossip only a little less than I love books. So I'm a very happy kitty when the two are combined together even if they are "I-was-famous-once-and-now-trying-to-relive-my-glory-days" ones like Elizabeth Berkley.... or Molly Ringwald.

Yes the red haired 80s teen queen has penned a book titled "Getting the Pretty Back" in which Ringwald, famous for movies like 16 Candles and Pretty In Pink, shares advice and personal experiences with her readers on everything from friendships and motherhood to aging and insecurities.

The publishers blurb says "In Getting the Pretty Back, Molly encourages every woman to become "the sexiest, funniest, smartest, best-dressed, and most confident woman that you can be." She shares personal anecdotes and entertaining insights about the struggle to get through the murky milestones and identity issues that crop up long after the prom ends. Whether she's discussing sex and beauty, personal style, travel and entertaining, motherhood, or friendship, Molly embodies the spirit of being fabulous at every age, and reminds us all that prettiness is a state of mind: it's "the part of you that knows what you really want, that takes risks." Lavishly illustrated by Ruben Toledo, Getting the Pretty Back is sure to charm women of all ages with Molly's unforgettably personal, refreshingly outspoken take on life, love, and, of course, finding that perfect red lipstick. . .
