If anyone knows how to handle tough, stressful situations, it's Jeff Lewis' trusty sidekick Jenni Pulos. And in her hilarious, genuinely touching new book, Grin and Bear It, the Flipping Out star opens up about her wild ride, from growing up in a drama-filled Greek household to pursuing her dreams as a comedian to welcoming her newborn baby girl Alianna last year. The subtitle of the book is "How to Be Happy No Matter What Reality Throws Your Way"—and it's a neat summation of how this self-described "me-aholic" learned to find peace and joy in her life.
"When I was writing this, my goal was to have people read this and to help them," says Jenni, who opens up about her struggle with an eating disorder in college as well as the demise of her first marriage. "I think people who struggle with eating disorders, or relationships, or careers, or other people will get something out of this book."
