Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote a book. I am not joking.
Just when I thought that crazy celebrity advice books had reached a new low -- really, do we need a guide to become famous from Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt? -- Jennifer Love Hewitt takes it up a notch. Or down, depending on your view.
First of all, I want to make my early admiration clear. I adored "Love" in Kids Incorporated. Mickey Mouse Club can have their Britneys and their Christina Aguileras; between Hewitt and "Stacey" AKA Fergie, from the Black Eyed Peas, I just couldn't get enough.
So, from that sweet little girl, we've gone to "The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name is Jennifer Love Hewitt, and I'm a Love-aholic." As NPR's Linda Holmes mentions in her amazing outline of the book's highlights, Hewitt uses ALL CAPS, multiple exclamation points and Internet-ese such as "lol" in her relationship guide, which apparently doubles as a talk forum. She also advises women to get over a breakup by rebounding ASAP, but "he must be gorgeous or you'll feel worse."
Gee, thanks, Jen!
In another list, a format which Hewitt is a big fan of, she shares "What a Man Should Know," including "How to pick a diamond" and "To always have a coat for you. Just ... wow.
I think I will now scrub this latest literary blip from my memory, and watch old Kids Incorporated clips for the rest of the day to ease my pain.
