Stirring The Pot
In her presentation, Jenny McCarthy shares the secrets of her hard-won wisdom, witty observations, revealing notes to herself and tales of both her best and most embarrassing moments, Stirring the Pot is McCarthy’s recipe for getting what you want out of life. With a winning mix of storytelling, sisterly advice, sex appeal, and self-deprecation, Jenny shows us how a pinch of conviction (aka hardheadedness), a dollop of flexibility (being okay with Plan B or even C) and endless faith (in yourself, in your wildest fantasies and in the general goodness of others) can mix to create the life of your dreams!
