In her four decades, actress Denise Richards has experienced more excitement than most people pack into a lifetime—and we're not just talking about her tumultuous marriage and post-marriage with Charlie Sheen. Her aptly titled memoir tells the story of what happens when a nice girl from Downers Grove, Illinois catapults to fame because of her beauty. From success as a teenage model and TV actress, Richards moved on to parts that showcased her physique more than her acting skills: Her portrayal as a scantily clad nuclear physicist in a 1999 James Bond film earned her a Razzie. Fortunately, her Real Girl Next Door goes beyond the bare facts. Richards writes candidly about her romantic mishaps, misperceptions by the press, and her own rediscovery of happiness.
