New book I am reading: FEMME FATALE: Cinema's Most Unforgettable Lethal Ladies

Just picked up this book to take read on the plane to New York - Femme Fatale: Cinema's Most Unforgettable Lethal Ladies which is written by my girlfriend Dominique Mainon and James Ursini.

Dominique has been struggling with breast cancer and last year Tammy Knickerbocker held a fundraiser which I hosted to help her gain money for her surgery and medical needs. Mark Eades from the OC Register covered it. Fortunately she is doing better now, but struggling to catch up economically after having been unable to do camera work or lift things for a long time. I hope her book sales will help her catch up.

On top of that, if you love movies and pictures of sexy femme fatales like Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Barbara Stanwyck, Brigitte Bardot, Maria Felix, Elizabeth Taylor, Anita Ekberg, etc, this book is jam-packed with pictures. It even has modern lethal ladies like Salma Hayek, Gong Li, Angelina Jolie, and of course Sharon Stone....

Check it out on amazon.com or major book stores.

  2. Jeana, thank you so much for mentioning my book, and all you have done to help me get through my last bout with breast cancer. You are the best! Love, D

  3. Jeana,

    The book sounds fascinating and I can't wait to read it.

    You will be missed on OC Housewives. You were always my favorite. Too bad the show has disintegrated into what it is today.

    I will be following your blog. Keep blogging--I have my own blog and I've found it to be very theraputic when things get rough.

  4. Sounds like a neat book. You are such a sweet friend to give her a shout out.

  5. This book sounds great. I will be buying it for sure and getting a couple to give for Christmas presents!
