It’s aimed at helping young girls deal with body image issues and to gain confidence in themselves. Katherine told USA Today that her parents worked hard so that she and her three siblings had a normal childhood.
“They were very protective of having us in the public eye when we were younger. We didn’t go to Hollywood premieres. We practiced community service. We went to school and camp like normal kids,” says Katherine, a junior majoring in communications at the University of Southern California.
She she had her first body image crisis when she was in the fourth grade, and wrote her book to let young girls know that they are not alone.
“It was the first time I was aware of my body and compared what I looked like to what other girls looked like,” she says. “It freaked me out…I want to let girls know they are not alone with the changes and doubts about their body.”
During these difficult years, she believes it’s important for girls to have a close relationship with their mothers. “My mom was always good with me. She always checked in with me. I had the best relationship with my mom. I still do. I talk to her four times a day…I also have an amazing relationship with my dad…I talk to him about boys, about going out, about what I’m interested in, about business.”
According to abcnews.com, this information was revealed in the book “The Promise: President Obama, Year One” by Jonathan Alter, the Newsweek editor.
After hearing Carla Bruni’s story, “Michelle Obama laughed and said that this did not happen to them” said Jonathan Alter.
The couple Nicolas Sarkozy-Carla Bruni is famous for not being punctual. In 2008, the two made Prince Charles of Great Britain to wait, at the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Armistice of 1918.
The book “The Promise: President Obama, Year One” will be released in U.S. next week.
The author describes Oprah based on anonymous sources and tired gossip material to write about the talk show host’s sexuality and friendship with Gayle King.
Even if Kelley wrote about famous subjects such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Frank Sinatra and Nancy Reagan she never been successfully sued for libel or forced to retract a written statement.
In a specific chapter, the author quotes Winfrey’s cousin, Katharine Carr. Simply put, Carr paints Oprah as someone who is an enemy of the truth…
“Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches, I have no idea. [Oprah’s grandmother] kept a spotless house… It was a wooden, six-room house with a large living room that had a fireplace and rocking chair,” Carr says, adding: “I’ve confronted her and asked ‘Why do you tell such lies?’ Oprah told me, ‘That’s what people want to hear. The truth is boring.'”
Nevertheless, Carr says she loves her cousin and forgives her because Oprah has done so much for other people.
On the other hand, Carr says : “Oprah does not love her mother at all… She gives her a great deal financially, but she does not give her the respect and affection a daughter should, and that bothers me.”
