As co-anchor and correspondent for Access Hollywood, Shaun Robinson has spoken with countless glamorous celebrities and has received hundreds of emails and letters from young girls asking how they can be more like their favorite stars. Shaun opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her new book Exactly As I Am which shatters Hollywood beauty myths – “everything is airbrushed” – and shares how some of the most famous women in the world have suffered from low self esteem. The inspiring book encourages girls to find their inner strength, grow confident, and believe in themselves.
CBS: Tell us about your new book, Exactly As I Am, about girls and self esteem.
SR: “This book was three years in the making. As a result of my work at Access Hollywood, many girls I would come in contact with would ask me if celebrities are as perfect as they seem on TV or in magazines. I realized that girls internalize many of the images that I report on. So I felt it was my duty to use my access, and talk to celebrities about what it takes to believe in yourself.
It doesn’t have anything to do with fame, beauty and money. Some of the most beautiful, richest, famous people are miserable. I wanted to find out if some of these celebrities had struggled with their own self-esteem and then use those experiences to help girls navigate the waters because it’s much tougher to be a girl now than it has ever been.”

After four unsuccessful rounds of in vitro fertilization, Céline Dion is not giving up hope for another baby, she tells People.
“I’m going to try until it works,” says the 41-year-old Canadian songstress who has been undergoing the emotional process of giving herself daily hormone shots.
“Five’s my lucky number,” she adds, “so this is the time it’s got to [work].”
While her husband/manager Rene Angélil, 68, says they “go crazy” waiting for the results after each try, Dion – whose new concert film and family documentary Céline: Through the Eyes of the World, will be released February 17 – stays positive and focused on their 9-year-old son René-Charles who is thriving as a second-grader at his new school in Florida.
The best selling female artist of all time also opened up about returning to Las Vegas on March 5, 2011 to begin a new 3-year show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “It’s happening! Great songs, great lyrics. I think it’s going to be very touching.”
