Kathie Lee & Hoda: My Foot Is Too Big For the Glass Slipper Review
Gabrielle Reece is a professional volleyball player, a model, an actress and most recently a published author. In her second book, My Foot is Too Big for the Glass Slipper, Reece demystifies marriage and goes over what it truly takes to love someone forever.
Kathie Lee called the book a “page turner” and deeply personal. She said she has read a number of books about marriage and divorce, all of which have had the same type of information or perception, but she said Reece’s book offers something new. Reece said when she was approached about writing the book, she wanted to do it her own way. She wanted to be honest without being gratuitous, she said. Although it was difficult to talk about her own marriage struggles, she said she wrote the book like she was talking with a girlfriend.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Gabrielle Reece Almost Divorced After Three Years
Reece reveals in the book that she and her husband, Laird Hamilton, had a lot of trouble with their marriage after only about three years of marriage. She said they even talked about getting divorced, but they decided not to when they both realized they each had someone they were willing to fight for.
Reece said learning to live with someone forever is a skill set we are not born with. It is something we must learn, something we must practice and something we have to strive at becoming better at. She said her marriage has taught her how to love herself as well. She said it took her years to figure out the only person that can make her happy is herself, not her kids or her husband, only herself.
