Celebrity books are always a big hit with fans. Who doesn’t want to hear some famous celebrity tell their stories and be like a fly on the wall to hear of their escapades, scandals, love life, and supposed “secrets”. OK, apparently I do!
Brat-Packer, Rob Lowe is the latest star to confirm that he is currently working on his memoirs. The memoir will be titled, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. I give kudos to him for giving the book such an intriguing title. Genius! The book will include stories about having been a teen heartthrob, tales about Hollywood, being a father and husband, talk on his current roles, and being in show-business for four decades. This book is sure to fly off the shelves, and I admit I will eagerly buy it, as soon as it is released! I will review it for others, so expect to see my review and opinion.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends will be published by Henry Holt and Co. Look for for the book May of 2011.

Rob Hepler Lowe was born on March 17, 1964 in Virginia. When he was just a child his family relocated to Dayton, Ohio. As a young boy he was already modeling, and by the time he was a teenager he was acting. Rob Lowe is most famous for being a member of the 1980s “Brat Pack”.
He has since, no doubt, been in endless scandals, before conquering his problems with drugs and alcohol. By the time the 1990s rolled around he emerged clean and sober. On July 22, 1991 he married Sheryl Berkoff, and together they have two children. She’s a make-up artist. Rob’s brother, Chad Lowe, is also an actor, as you probably already know.
Rob Lowe has won numerous awards for his roles as an actor on both television and film. People magazine named him one of the most beautiful people in the world in 2000. And by 2003 he was helping to get Arnold Schwarzenegger elected as Governor of California. Funny Rob Lowe trivia fact: he was considered for the role of Dr. Derek Shepard on the infamous Grey’s Anatomy.
