Heather Locklear will star in a Lifetime movie based on the life of author Kristine Carlson, executive produced by Meghan McCain. Locklear, 59, and McCain, 36, are teaming for the network’s upcoming movie “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story.”

The biopic tells the story of Kristine Carlson, who co-authored several titles of her late husband Dr. Richard Carlson’s best-selling book series “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.” After Richard dies suddenly, Kristine struggles to cope with overwhelming grief and raising her two children alone, while dealing with the self-help empire he left behind. The New York Times best-selling book series “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” was first published in 1997, and has sold over 25 million copies. The inspirational nine-book series served as a guide to help readers to put difficult challenges into perspective and “keep the little things from taking over your life.”

This is Locklear’s first acting role since appearing in an episode of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” in 2017. It is also McCain’s first project since announcing she was leaving “The View” earlier this month. “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story” is scheduled to begin shooting shortly in Nashville, Tennessee, and premiere on Lifetime later this year.

Kelly Ripa to release her first book of personal essays in 2022

Kelly Ripa will release her first book, titled ‘Live Wire,’ in 2022. Described as a book of Ripa’s personal essays, Live Wire has the 50-year-old Ripa exploring “childhood, motherhood, marriage, her career, and the intersection of all the above — putting her thoughtfulness, assertiveness and deep understanding of the dynamics of gender and power on full display.”

The ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ co-host — who shares sons Michael, 24, and Joaquin, 18, and daughter Lola, 20, with husband Mark Consuelos — will show readers “what really makes her tick.” A book description reads: “As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment.)  Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Live Wire is available for pre-order now.
