Author Irene Zutell moved from New York to LA — to the world of Hollywood and paparazzi, celebs and even…porn.
She recently sat down with SheKnows entertainment editor, Joel Amos, in LA to talk about what sparked her book, which we chose as our first SheKnows Book Club pick.
Which celebrity cheating scandal spawned the idea for Zutell’s book? Hint: it’s one of America’s movie sweethearts, but not Sandra Bullock who is currently emmersed in her own personal cheating scandal all over the news.
Nope, the idea from Zutell’s book came from another pretty woman in Hollywood.
Zutell talks about life as a writer, mother, neighbor to some interesting people, being a celeb journalist, how the paparazzi scared her during the OJ Simpson trial she was covering, dealing with a mother in law battling Alzheimer’s, her daughter’s penchant for mature dialogue and more.

About Pieces of Happily Ever After
Pieces of Happily Ever After is the story of Alice – a woman who thought she had it all.
Her handsome entertainment lawyer husband suddenly leaves her for his client, a movie star known as The Sexiest Woman Alive, and suddenly Alice is thrown into the world of paparrazi and celebrity headlines.
But Alice has to move forward and care for her five-year-old daughter, Gabby, and her aging mother who has Alzheimer’s.
Throw in a sexy paparazzo, a former high school flame and some neighbors making… porn…and it’s a book that you won’t be able to put down.
