About this title


Part autobiography, part personal philosophy, and full of practical advice for women of all ages, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage is a book that skimps neither on entertainment nor on good plain advice.

She didn’t hatch out of an eagle’s nest, circa One Million Years B.C., clad in a skimpy fur bikini. She didn’t aspire to fame as a sex symbol. Yet, for many years after making her Hollywood entrance as every man’s fantasy, Raquel Welch was best known for her beauty and sex appeal. A private person, she allowed people to draw their own conclusions from her public image. Now, Raquel Welch is ready to speak her mind. And, with the luxury of hindsight and the benefit of experience, she has plenty to share about the art of being a woman--even men will find it enlightening to read about what makes her tick.

In Beyond the Cleavage, Raquel Welch talks, woman to woman, about her views on all that comes with being a member of the female sex--love, sex, style, health, body image, career, family, forgiveness, aging, and coming of age. Looking back on her life, she lets women in on her childhood, dominated by a volatile father; her first love, marriage, and divorce; her early struggles as a single working mother in Hollywood; her battles for roles and respect as an actress; and her daring decision never to lie about her age. Looking forward, she offers women a compass to guide them at every crossroad of life, from menopause through the empty nest years, to dating younger men and beyond. Along with bringing baby boomers into her confidence--she offers essential tips for staying motivated and positive past fifty, as well as divulging her secrets for fabulous hair and makeup--she even talks to today’s younger generation of women about the importance of carrying themselves with dignity and self-respect.

With warmth, humor, conviction, and honesty, Raquel reveals her approach to preventative aging, her life-changing commitment to yoga, her recipe for eating right, her skincare regimen, her flair for fashion, and much more. Deeply personal (Welch wrote every word herself--no ghostwriter), Beyond the Cleavage is Raquel Welch’s gift to every woman who longs to look and feel her best, and be at peace with herself.

Book Description:

Since her entree to the Hollywood scene in the 1960s, Raquel Welch has been a symbol of glamour and sex appeal whose honesty, high energy, and self-deprecating sense of humor are greatly admired by all her fans. She has won a Golden Globe for her role in The Three Musketeers, starred in many films, including One Million Years, B.C., which featured her classic iconic image of a cavewoman clad in a fur bikini, and played the role of a transsexual opposite Mae West in the cult favorite Myra Breckenridge.

Whether refusing to change her name to Debbie--because producers considered "Raquel" too ethnic--or to lie about her age, even to the detriment of her career, she has evolved elegantly over time into a true champion for women who defy traditional aging. In Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, Raquel opens up about her internal struggles to age gracefully in the often-harsh spotlight of Hollywood and to make peace with the sometimes uncomfortable mantle of "sex symbol," at the same time dispensing precious tips to all women about staying young in mind and body. She discloses the challenges of hitting forty and suffering all the ensuing stereotypes; how to cope with fifty, menopause, and shifting gears; and continuing into your sixties, sometimes with the challenges of dating and decisions about cosmetic surgery, all the while laying bare her own experiences of aging and maintaining and successful acting career.

The book reveal the secrets of diet, exercise, and healthy living--including her early devotion to yoga and fitness--that she devised over the years, as well as the hair, makeup, and dressing tips that have allowed her to remain effortlessly beautiful into her late sixties. While her book will be a must-have for every woman in the baby boomer generation, her warm, often comically irreverent voice and her priceless advice, based on decades of experience in one of the toughest arenas for women, will have wide appeal. Raquel Welch remains one of the most vital and enduring female icons of her day.
