Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote a book of advice about love, which is just as ridiculous as it sounds. “Here are 10 completely awesome things that happen in this book,” writes Linda Holmes for NPR:

  1. Hewitt admits to visiting and trying on her “dream ring” once a month since she was 12. She is now 31. “If this is true, she has made roughly 225 trips to the jewelry store to try on engagement rings. I do not know where to go with this.”
  2. Among her recommendations: Make out with a stranger to get over a breakup—but only if he’s “gorgeous”—and always spray tan before a date.

  1. By page two of the introduction, she’s used all caps (TRUTH) and 23 exclamation points (immediately following the word TRUTH, no less). “Three pages into the book you're already basically reading the late stages of an Internet message-board meltdown.”
  2. This line is bad enough even without the “lol” at the end: “Guys hate to spoon—they prefer to fork, lol!” Another classic line: “Remember, your body is a temple, not a 7-Eleven.”
