Abstract:

"A former teen celebrity and creator of the multi-media platform The Conversation tells her story--how she went from wild party girl to wise entrepreneur, wife, and mom--in this deeply personal feminist memoir that explores the issues, concerns, and experiences relevant to women today. At fifteen, Amanda de Cadenet, an aspiring model, was selected to be the host of two popular UK television shows. By eighteen, she was one of the most famous celebrities in England, dating Duran Duran guitarist John Taylor (fourteen years her senior) and making tabloid headlines with her hard-partying, wild child exploits. But the party came to a crashing end when, at eighteen, Amanda became the new face of teen pregnancy. Vowing to change her life, she moved to Los Angeles and began building a career as a photographer and CEO of her own multimedia company. Having been the target of paparazzi and tabloid headlines throughout her youth, her mission-driven business became centered on the idea of promoting women's voices and championing body-positive images of women. Today, through The Conversation, she engages celebrities and other notable women--including Hillary Clinton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jane Fonda, Lady Gaga, and Caitlin Moran--in no-holds-barred exchanges about what it means to be a woman today. In It's Messy Amanda offers readers an extension of the dialogues she's had with hundreds of woman through The Conversation as well as an inside look at her own journey through the London and Hollywood power scene. In her own uniquely edgy, irreverent, and provocative voice, she tackles uncomfortable yet familiar topics: ambivalence about motherhood; marriage; sex and body image; and how the media influences our expectations of ourselves as mothers, wives, and professionals. Through it all, Amanda offers an original perspective as a feminist on the front lines of celebrity culture."--
