Feel the Love in Christina Haag’s Must-Read Memoir, ‘Come to the Edge’
‘Come to the Edge,’ Christina Haag’s memoir about her love affair with JFK Jr., is a must-read—and it’s now available in paperback!
Happy New Year, ladies! I know it’s been a few weeks, but I’ve been busy looking at all the forthcoming spring yumminess in beauty, fashion, and a new subject I’ll be sharing with you this year: Interiors! Every home needs a makeover every once in a while, so why not let me help? More to come!
In other news, I spent my holidays shopping and attending incredible events to spread merriment and holiday joy. It’s my favorite time of the year! And while I was at it, I also spent every night in bed reading one of the most reflective, beautiful love stories I’ve ever come across—one that gives me hope for love for all of us in 2012. I’m talking, of course, about Christina Haag’s memoir Come to the Edge. If you haven’t read it, you must get it today! The paperback version launched last week, and it chronicles her love affair with JFK Jr. That’s right: The gorgeous son of the late President and the always fabulous Jackie O! Remember that incredible moment at JFK’s funeral when “Little John John” saluted his father on that tragic day? We all must admit that we secretly had crushes on him, so it was amazing to read this incredible recounting by someone he actually loved.
After reading the Los Angeles Times review, I knew I had to pick it up immediately. According to the L.A. Times, “The reader is swept into a rarefied realm where an intensely private Jackie Kennedy — whose quietly regal life is ordered around comfort and personal space — is called Mrs. Onassis…. Come to the Edge is about the endless burning passion of young love — the kind that strips you bare and leaves you for dead when it’s over.” It’s deep, and a page turner to boot!
Christina, who penned this New York Times Best Seller, was born in Manhattan, and in addition to being a wonderful writer, she’s also an incredible actress. I know you’ve seen her beautiful face in leading and guest starring roles on ER, Providence, Family Law, Heroes, Boston Public and Law and Order. Here’s an interview from The Today Show with Christina about Come to the Edge:
When I spoke with Christina, she was beyond delightful: She was smart and witty, and it was like we’d been best girlfriends for years (I love that!). We spoke about many things, but I don’t want to give too much away. You’ve simply got to experience the book for the first time the same way I did! I will tell you, however, about how she recalled JFK Jr.: “I knew John when he was just one of the guys,” she said. John used to call her “the girl next door.” So sweet! There’s so much more, but I’ll let you discover their journey for yourself.

Here’s to love!
