Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe

Okey, dokey. I stayed up till 2:30 last night and finished reading Rob Lowe's autobiography Stories I Only Tell My Friends. With that title, I think it's safe to say that we're now friends because, even though I don't know if he told it all, he told a lot of it. Rob (I'll just call him Rob now that we're pals... I mean he says so right there in the title of his book!) wrote this sucker in an easy-to-read, no-nonsense way that made hims seem like (gasp!) a real person!

Seriously, this autobiography was a fun read since I'm a fan of the pretty boy, love TV and movies and Rob name dropped till the cows came home, and basically because I'm nosy. I began to wonder if Rob (that's my bud Rob Lowe for those of you not paying attention) was for real because after every little set back that would send the weaker of us back home with our tails between our legs, he just took a bigger bite and did what he had to to improve himself.

I did notice that he glossed over his relationship / dating / whatever you want to call it with Melissa Gilbert. He gave her less than a page of ink. She, only the hand, went on and on and on in her autobiography Prairie Tales. Just goes to show you how different a relationship was in the eyes of each person.

Can you say positive attitude? I'm beginning to think his character Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation (love it!) is really just good ol' Rob. No embellishments. That's how he comes across in the book. Intense but lovable. Literally.

Are you a Rob Lowe fan? Which role or movie or TV show is your favorite? I'd have to go with Parks and Rec. That show is genius, and my friend Rob just adds to the wonder of it.
