Getting Real by Gretchen CarlsonA candid, funny memoir from the charismatic FOX News channel anchor and Miss America Pageant winner
Celebrity news anchorwoman Gretchen Carlson shares her inspiring story and offers important takeaways for women (and men) about what it means to strive for and find success in the real world. With warmth and wit, she takes readers from her Minnesota childhood, where she became a violin prodigy, through college at Stanford and her in-the-trenches years as a cub reporter on local television stations before becoming a national news reporter. She describes her rise to anchor of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on FOX News channel as a testament to personal strength and perseverance.
Carlson addresses the intense competitive effort of winning the Miss America Pageant, the challenges she’s faced as a woman in broadcast television, and how she manages to balance work and family as the wife of high-profile sports agent Casey Close and devoted mother to their two children. An unceasing advocate for respect and equality for women, Carlson writes openly about her own struggles with body image, pageant stereotypes, building her career, and having the courage to speak her mind. She encourages women to strive for their goals, never give up, and always believe in themselves.
In Getting Real, Carlson emerges as a living example of a woman not afraid to chase her dreams and embrace life fully.

The green-eyed beauty wore a pale pink sweater dress, a simple gold chain and her blond tresses piled on her head to meet the press. While the judges re-balloted to break a tie for the position of second runner-up, host Gary Collins ad-libbed by chatting with the finalists, his wife and co-host Mary Ann Mobley and Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafko. Had the floor opened up and swallowed me, I would have been happy. They are saying no to me.
