ELAINE BALLACE (The Rich & the Ruthless/The Miss Adventures of Camp Elaine): "Gabrielle Stone, on the "COVER" appears to have the perfect life...gorgeous, brilliant, and a great career...inside she too struggles with turmoil! Fortunately, her brilliance WINS out and she has the "COURAGE" to make the necessary changes to IMPROVE her life! "BE COURAGEOUS!"

Award Winning Actress and Director, Gabrielle Stone, is the daughter of an entertainment legacy couple -- Dee Wallace (over 200 movie credits including The Howling/GH/Just Add Magic, etc) and Christopher Stone (Dallas/Bionic Woman/The New Lassie).

Hollywood relationships are historically rife with obstacles and horror stories. However, even Hollywood writers would be hard pressed to concoct a more dramatic story, than the true life experiences that Ms Stone has gone through recently, and now offers in a book designed to help others avoid potential pitfalls of love in EAT, PRAY, #FML

Proving that truth is stranger than fiction, a year and a half into Ms Stone marriage, she found out that her still newly wed husband, had been having an affair with a nineteen-year-old for six months. She filed for divorce and left. Two weeks later she met a man, and they fell madly in love. It was a fairy-tale romance for a month and a half, and he convinced her to join him on a romantic month-long vacation in Italy. Forty-eight hours before they were supposed to get on a plane, he told her that he needed to go by himself. Gabrielle was devastated. So, she had a decision to make. She could either stay home and be heartbroken, or go travel Europe for a month by herself. Gabrielle came to the conclusion that staying at home heartbroken was not an option.

So, what does a woman do when her life has fallen apart and her heart has been ripped out and stepped on twice in two months? She goes on a wild adventure, makes some bad decisions, and does a s**t load of soul searching. But, most importantly? She finds out how to love...herself. And, if you're Gabriel Stone, you write about it.
