Publisher Comments:

From everybody’s favorite “momager” of E!’s hit reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians comes a relatable, brutally honest memoir of Kris Jenner’s never-before told story of the savvy businesswoman behind the Kardashian empire.

The Kardashians are famous for letting it all hang out. Whether they’re moving cross-country, settling a family feud, dealing with heartbreak, or just having fun with one another, their lives are utterly relatable. But what have Kourtney, Kim, KhloÉ, and the rest of the Kardashian clan got that we haven’t got? Off-the-charts beauty, millions of dollars, and Kris Jenner—the superstar mom and manager who made them into the family we can’t resist.

     On Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we watch Kris do it all. She runs a household, manages her children’s successful careers, produces four television shows featuring her larger-than-life family, and still finds time to tweet to her fans. How does she manage to maintain her composure, enviable elegance, and unflappable sense of humor? After raising six children of her own, in addition to being a stepmother to four and a grandmother, multitasking is Kris’s way of life.

     In this thoughtful, candid, and no-nonsense memoir, Kris Jenner is an open book about the good times and the rough patches. She shares the reality of living her hectic life in the celebrity spotlight, touching on topics that will resonate with women everywhere—love, loss, marriage, divorce, motherhood, and faith. She also puts her often-controversial parenting style under the microscope as she relates the details of her decision to make her charming family into an international brand with a blockbuster reality television franchise.

Synopsis:

Jennie Garth is recognized around the world as the bubbly blonde television star we've all watched for years. Yet few beyond her close friends and family know the real Jennie Garthsmart, funny, and stronger than she ever realized.

From her sudden rise to fame as a teen on the mega-hit show Beverly Hills, 90210 to rebuilding her life and emotional spirit after her recent divorce—actress Jennie Garth has embraced what life has thrown at her head-on, with openness, determination, and levity. Now, for the first time, Jennie opens up about her experiences and takes readers on a revealing—and often humorous—journey as she sets out to answer the question, how did I get here?

Since she landed in Hollywood at age sixteen, Jennie Garth has been something of a fish-out-of-water. Just months after coming to LA, she landed the role of Kelly Taylor on Aaron Spellings Beverly Hills, 90210. For the next ten years, Garth starred on one of the most iconic shows in television history, experiencing both the ups and downs of stardom, while securing her place in American pop-culture as a teen icon.

Recently single after eleven years of marriage, Jennie found herself facing forty from a vantage point she hadn't sought out: as a single mom, in-demand again as an actress, and all over the tabloids. In this intimate, uplifting memoir, Jennie explores the high and lows of her life in Hollywood, both in front of the cameras and behind closed doors, sharing the joys and challenges of balancing motherhood, love, and life in the spotlight.

Through these candid, funny, and poignant stories, fans will find they have a lot more in common with Jennie than they ever knew.
