Jenny McCarthy speaks candidly about the challenges and the humor to be found in balancing motherhood and the ups and downs of marriage. McCarthy's honesty has made her a bestseller. Here, she opens up about all of the things no one told you before you got married and had kids. Of course there's plenty of Jenny's outrageous humor, but she also writes openly and for the first time about doing your best when marriage falters and about her own divorce, which made headlines when it was announced in the summer of 2005. Jenny doesn't pretend to be an expert in her books; she is instead something more valuable--a good girlfriend. Catch Jenny's takes on growing older, finances, PMS, sex, dating... again, and mommyhood.--From publisher description.
