The name Jessica Rodriguez still rings a bell in showbiz circles to this day. To be sure, the former talent manager and actress who married triathlete David Bunevacz, will be remembered for several controversies, the most serious of which was a high profile business partnership gone wrong that had them fleeing for safety in the United States.
It has been 15 years since that painful day for the former celebrity, who according to her publicist Shirley Matias Pizarro, has gotten over the Beverly Hills 6750 fiasco and happily living with David and their three children still in the US. The latest news about her though is that she is officially a book author now, having released a self-help title, Date Like a Girl, Marry Like A Woman: The Polished Woman’s Guide to Love, Romance and Sex via amazon.com, now available for purchase.
“She’s actually preparing for a bigger launch soon,” Pizarro told The Manila Times.
Apparently, Jessica found good use of all her complex life experiences by writing them down, with the message that “even the wildest of dreams can become a reality.”
Through her publicist, Jessica said of her new book, “I will be the first person to tell you that I never thought it was in me to write, much less author an entire book! Since we resided in California, I have been in search of my real purpose. My relationships are always the best part of my life and I found I had it in me to inspire people, and actually give them sound advice about love and life. So, I learned to write. And then I found my purpose. I hope people will enjoy reading this book as much as I had enjoyed writing it and sharing my life in the process.”
Date Like a Girl, Marry Like a Woman, she added, will help readers navigate how to have a good time with “Mr. Right Now” and how to hold onto “Mr. Right” once they find him.
“Her book is about shedding your insecurities, and offers insight on looking, feeling, and being your best, with an emphasis on having your own life. Additionally, this is the book you’ll come back to even after you say ‘I do’ to your man. Understanding that happily ever after may be a good way to end a movie, but isn’t a good way to start a marriage. You can find real tips about everything from friendship to sex to finances with both humor and heart,” Pizarro interjected.
“Ultimately Date Like a Girl, Marry Like a Woman: The Polished Woman’s Guide to Love, Romance, and Sex is meant to transcend beyond the pages as it’s lessons are applied in daily life,” Jessica concluded.
