With a Little Luck: A Novel

My good friend Caprice Crane's new book, With a Little Luck, is out today. Yay, Caprice!

It's gotten great reviews:

"Crane is one of the funniest writers of popular fiction around. The dialog (inner and outer) is laugh-out-loud, snort-inducing hilarious . . . Readers will want to cross their fingers and spit while throwing salt over their shoulders if it helps Berry reach her dreams. Highly recommended."

Library Journal

"Fans of Stacy Ballis and Cara Lockwood will appreciate Crane's effortlessly funny style, which is often attempted in popular fiction but is rarely this well executed...Lighthearted and charmingly honest."


"[A] satisfying romantic comedy...[with] real character growth."

—Kirkus Reviews

And even better blurbs:

"Romantic, poignant and funny—this book is a lucky find for lit fans. Caprice Crane is a nimble and gifted storyteller."

—Diablo Cody, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Juno

"A hilarious romp that oozes charm and giddy fun. Caprice Crane is a true talent."

—Molly Jong-Fast, author of The Social Climber's Handbook

"Witty, fast-paced, and sheer fun. Caprice Crane is a master of dialogue. Half the time I was reading this book I was smiling, which made me look like a crazy person on the subway."

—Jancee Dunn, author of Don’t You Forget About Me and Why Is My Mother Getting a Tattoo?

"Absolutely charming and hilarious."

—Missy Peregrym, star of the movie Stick It and ABC's Rookie Blue

"With a Little Luck scores in humor, head, and heart. In other words, it’s a perfect trifecta."

—Karyn Bosnak, author of 20 Times a Lady (soon to be the major motion picture What's Your Number?)

(Omg, who is that last fantastic blurber?) (I meant every word of it.)

And most importantly, she has the cutest dog ever (who likes to video chat with Bev):

Anyway, check it out, buy it—it's fantastic!

Olivia Munn?s Nippy Night Out

Stepping out in a daring ensemble, Olivia Munn exited the famed Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Saturday evening (May 4).

The ?Newsroom? hottie donned a see-through sweater with no bra, revealing a peek at her lady parts.

In relationship news, Miss Munn recently chatted about her boyfriend Joel Kinnaman and his homeland cuisine.

"I don't think there are any Swedish restaurants in L.A. The Swedish food I've seen is, like, pickled fish that can live outside the refrigerator for, like, a day,? the 32-year-old explained.

"I went last summer. I didn't have [the pickled fish]. I saw it; I thought, 'I don't want that.' They love it. That and potatoes," Olivia continued. "My boyfriend's dad is a really great cook, and he was in Laos for while so he actually made a lot of food [I liked]. I didn't have to go for the pickled herring."

Celebrity Breakups: Ashley Greene and Reeve Carney

Ashley Greene

Prior to embarking on a huge round of promotions for "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Ashley Greene and her boyfriend Reeve Carney have decided to part ways. The couple dated for about a year before their schedules simply became too hectic, according to an US Weekly source. Previously, the 25-year-old actress was linked to Joe Jonas while her now ex-boyfriend dated Jennifer Damiano, his costar in Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." Currently, the "Twilight" star is enjoying time in South Africa. On Tuesday she tweeted, "Asked for asparagus today... Only in Africa can your server answer 'The monkeys broke in and stole it last night.'" [gallery=839]

Keira Knightley Is Married - See the Pictures!

Keira Knightley married James Righton Saturday in France! The couple, engaged for a year, arrived in Nice last week to prep for their big day. On Saturday morning, they wed in the small French town of Mazan at the town hall with just a small group of family and friends there to witness. Later that evening, they hosted a party at Keira's family's farmhouse in Provence.

Keira wore a short dress, paired with a chic jacket, for the nuptials. In fact, Keira's Rodarte dress was first seen on her in 2008! She also donned a chic Chanel jacket and flats. She polished off the look with headpiece made of flowers. Congrats to Keira and James!

Reese Witherspoon Dash Cam Arrest Video & Audio Leaked
Reese Witherspoon’s dash came arrest video and audio has been leaked and it is not painting the actress in a very good light. If you haven’t seen these videos that have gone viral then you must watch it below, trust me it is good. Thanks to TMZ the videos, there are a total of three, the world can now see exactly what happened on the night that the actress got mouthy with the police. Not only does her husband throw her under the bus for not keeping her mouth shut but she pulls the celebrity card, as well as the pregnant card. The footage does not paint the born and raised Southern girl as the sweetheart the we all know and love her as. The Reese seen on these dash cam’s is a much different one then the posed, apologetic and embarrassed woman who sat down with George Stephanopoulos on GMA yesterday. It is a little more than ironic that the footage of her arrest comes out hours after she discussed it on TV. Although most of the footage is a obnoxious and Witherspoon is a total jerk, there is a super funny part but it has nothing to do [...]
