In her first-ever book, True Love, Jennifer Lopez explores one of her life’s most defining moments—a two-year period of great personal growth in the wake of her divorce as she created and set out on her first world tour.  Guided by both intimate and electrifying photographs, True Love is an honest and revealing personal diary with hard-won lessons and heartfelt recollections and an empowering story of self-reflection, rediscovery, and resilience. The wall-to-wall media blitz started last week with an exclusive People excerpt, and her time in New York was jam-packed with top-tier national interviews, including three segments on the Today Show, including a two-part series, where she was interviewed by Maria Shriver, and which ran last Monday and Tuesday.  She also did a live interview with Hoda and Kathie Lee.  In addition, Jennifer appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, EXTRA, E! News Daily, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood (interviewed by her sister Lynda Lopez), HuffPost LIVE with Arianna Huffington, HollywoodLife.com, and a multi-city TV satellite tour.  Print interviews with online video components included USA Today and The Associated Press. We also created a beautiful book trailer, which has been blowing up social media since it launched. On November 6, Jennifer Lopez was interviewed on stage by Hoda Kotb at the 92 St Y in New York City, with the event live-streamed via the Huffington Post as well.
Mario Lopez’s first memoir, Just Between Us, went on sale from Celebra this week to a major media blitz.  As Mario turns forty, he reflects about his time as a child actor to his role as A.C. Slater on Saved by the Bell, to his current gig hosting EXTRA and his happy-ever-after marriage to his wife Courtney Mazza and their two children.  Mario started the week with a great event at Book Revue on Long Island, and did interviews with all the major networks, starting with Good Morning America on Monday, and followed with Fox & FriendsEllen, The Chew, Dr. Oz, The Howard Stern Show on Sirius/XM, and a People magazine first serial excerpt!  He also made a stop at Brooklyn’s The BookMark Shoppe where he signed copies for more than 150 fans.  More interviews to come next week, including The Talk, Queen Latifah, PageSix.com, and an event in Glendale, CA.mario-lopez-GMA
