Book Details:


Lorraine Bracco is one of the world’s most dynamic actresses, but when she reached her fifties, she felt she was losing her luster. During the long illnesses of her parents, she began to gain weight and felt her energy and self-confidence take a dive. Watching her parents die within 9 days of each other was her wake-up call to take charge of her life. She made a commitment to herself to stay healthy.

In To the Fullest, Bracco presents her Clean Up Your Act Program, a comprehensive plan to help women over 40 look and feel younger. The program includes an intensive liver cleanse to reboot the body to start fresh on the path to optimal health by eliminating gluten, sugar, eggs, and dairy. Two weeks of meal plans and a varied list of meals and snacks illustrate that hunger is not part of the program and that eating clean has endless flavorful options. Her Clean Up Your Act Diet, which follows the cleanse, will help you lose pounds and deliver supercharged energy. Bracco adds her own mouthwatering recipes to ease the transition to clean eating and suggests an abundance of satisfying breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. She gradually lost 35 pounds and has kept it off. The book also includes testimonials gathered from women who have participated in Rodale’s 6-week test panel.

With winning honesty, Bracco provides the perfect combination of humor, comfort, and motivational support that women need to rise to life’s challenges. From attitude adjustments to style tips, from finding new passions to making movement a habit, her advice and personal insights both inspire and entertain.

Rizzoli & Isles Renewed for Season 6


Rizzoli & IslesTNT has ordered a sixth season of the blockbuster hit Rizzoli & Isles, which finished this past summer as basic cable's #1 series. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander star in the drama, which has ranked as one of basic cable's Top 5 series for five consecutive years, including 2014-to-date. Season five of Rizzoli & Isles is set to return with new episodes in early 2015. TNT has ordered 18 episodes for season six, which is slated to launch in summer 2015. Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Warner Horizon Television and Bill Haber’s Ostar Productions, with Haber and showrunner Jan Nash serving as executive producers.

Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles stars Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry, an authentic and deep friendship and a unique working relationship that together, helps them to solve the most complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston.

Rizzoli & Isles also stars Jordan Bridges as Jane’s brother, Detective Frankie Rizzoli Jr.; Bruce McGill as Sgt. Detective Vince Korsak, Jane’s steady old-school Homicide Squad teammate; Idara Victor as crime-scene analyst Nina Holiday; and Lorraine Bracco as Angela, Jane's meddling mother.

Rizzoli & Isles launched in 2010, finishing its first year as basic cable's #1 new series. Each year since, it has ranked as one of basic cable's Top 5 series with total viewers, as well as one of basic cable's Top 10 series with adults 25-54. The show topped the charts as the #1 series on basic cable this past summer, with 7.6 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery. Rizzoli & Isles was also the #2 series (behind TNT's The Last Ship) among adults 25-54 and within the Top 5 among adults 18-49 for the summer. When incorporating TNT's multiple platforms, including live viewing, DVR playback, set-top VOD and digital on-demand, the summer run of Rizzoli & Isles reached a total of 13.6 million viewers per episode.
