Mid-Week Must Have with a Real M.O.M Next Door, Denise Richards

It's summer and most of us M.O.Ms look for a little summer reading and an inspirational book to help us through the summer months managing work,camps, no school, irregular schedules and beach or pool time!  Well, who better to sit down with than Denise Richards and The Real Girl Next Door.


Denise was one of our readers favorite featured Celebrity M.OMs and we had the pleasure of catching up with her again on the realease of her first memoir and book, The Real Girl Next Door.

M.O.M Katie ~With all your M.O.M skills and working career, was writing a book more difficult to multitask doing ? How did you compose your thoughts while managing daily life as a mom?

M.O.M Denise ~I wrote the book while my girls were at school and when they went to bed. I needed the quiet time to stay focused. 

M.O.M Katie ~Did your girls play a role in pursuing writing a book and sharing your experiences?

M.O.M Denise ~I honestly was inspired to write my book from all the lovely messages on twitter and women coming up to me asking how I got through a difficult time. I wanted to share my feelings during that and give hope to those who feel there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel. I definitely thought of my girls while writing and different areas of the book I know I will have to get into greater detail with them when the time is right.

M.O.M Katie ~What's your favorite chapter and what does this chapter mean for you?

M.O.M Denise ~My favorite chapter is loss..About losing my mom. That was the hardest chapter and took the longest for me to write. I had a flight to NY and was working on it, I started crying on the plane and had to put it down. It was difficult.

M.O.M Katie ~What do you want your readers to feel and know after they read the final chapter?

M.O.M Denise ~I think that I want them to read the final chapter and know it's ok to make mistakes, just keep moving forward. We have one life and it's short. During the dark times, try and pick yourself up and keep the faith.

NEW YORK, October 12, 2010 – Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint announced today that it will publish a book by actress Denise Richards. The currently untitled book will be a memoir about overcoming life’s challenges while retaining a positive attitude.

Denise’s book will be an emotional and empowering memoir where she will share her personal struggles in the hope that she will inspire readers with her story. A small-town girl at heart, Richards will touch on universal themes of love and loss, as well as marriage, divorce, and motherhood.

Richards has appeared in films including Starship Troopers, Wild Things, and The World is Not Enough (in which she played a Bond Girl). She was the star for two seasons of E!’s Denise Richards: It’s Complicated. She is starring in the upcoming film Mother’s Little Helpers and has a recurring role in the second season of Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State. She is the mother of two daughters.

Denise Richards said: “I wanted to write a heartfelt, honest book that would be a source of hope for others going through difficult times.”

Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of Gallery Books, said "From the moment I met Denise, I was struck by how intelligent and down-to-earth she was. Her story—one of a small town girl coming to Hollywood and experiencing love, loss, and heartbreak—is sure to resonate with readers everywhere.”
