"Cristina Ferrare Style" and her fourth and most recent book "Realistically Ever After," a humorous view of finding happiness when he's not Prince Charming, you're not Snow White and life is not a fairy tale. The success of her books attest to her expertise in the areas of women's health, well being, culinary arts, stylistic design, as well as her great zest for life and her humor.

In the early 80's, Cristina co-hosted "AM Los Angeles," which was the #1 rated morning television show during her five year tenure. Among her many TV appearances, she has hosted her own shows: "Cristina and Friends" and a two hour live show from Universal Studios' "Home and Family." She was a substitute co-host on "Good Morning America" and co-hosted numerous times with Regis Philbin on "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee." Her primetime series for CBS, "Shame on You," was one of the first magazine format shows that featured consumer fraud and awareness. It set the stage for other prime time magazine formats that followed. For NBC, she co-hosted "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" with Dr. Drew Pinsky. At one time, Cristina had three shows on the air at the same time: the aforementioned live morning talk show, "AM Los Angeles," "The Home Show," and the primetime series "Incredible Sunday" all for ABC. In feature films, she starred opposite David Niven in "The Impossible Years" and the critically acclaimed "J.W. Coop" with Oscar winner, Cliff Robertson.

Cristina has been hosting a series of web episodes for Oprah.com that includes cooking classes with the emphasis on how to prepare delicious meals for families who are struggling with money, time and idea issues. She is writing weekly blogs for Harpo.com that includes recipes and answers to questions from viewers on her appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Cristina has recently joined the "Oprah family" as a regular featuring Oprah's favorite meals! As Cristina likes to put it, "Serving up a big bowl of love."

In 2006, Cristina, along with her partners Brian Thorson and Tim Hosier, started a line of home accessories through their newly formed "Ferrare With Company." It includes picture frames, napkin rings, lamps, scented candles, candle sticks, accessories for the table, and show stopping, one of a kind mirrors and chandeliers using only the finest materials. Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones, pearls, shells, and metals are placed by hand, piece by piece, onto each object and are true works of art. The pieces are sought after by top interior designers around the country and sells to over 60 stores including Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys. They have expanded their business to include clients from France, Turkey, Istanbul, Dubai, and Saudi Arabia.

Cristina is a sought after speaker and has spoken at various conventions around the country including the 2004 "The Women's Conference" where she monitored a session about women's health and sexual well being. In 2007 she hosted, along with Chef Art Smith, a session on cooking for 300 women! She sits on the Board of Directors for "The Women's Conference" which is headed by California's First Lady Maria Shriver. Once a year, over 14,000 women come from all over for a life-changing day. It is a true day of transformation and empowerment that encourages women to be their own "Architect of Change" for a better life for themselves, their families, and their community!
