Her mother groomed her to become a trophy wife, instead she became a bestselling author. Julie Klam has written about her materialistic upbringing in wealthy Westchester (“Please Excuse My Daughter”) and her adult passion/obsession, dog rescuing, in “You Had Me at Woof” and “Love at First Bark.” She’s not afraid to expose her self-effacing feminine funny bone with articles titled “My Worst Dating Mistake” and “In Praise of Lingerie” for glamorous magazines like, well, Glamour, Bazaar, and O.
Formerly a writer on VH1’s “Pop-Up Video,” Klam was nominated for an Emmy. She didn’t win the trophy but she did land a man (she married the show’s producer Paul Leo). The song during which their eyes first met has never been revealed.
