rob lowe Rob Lowe is writing his memoirs? This should be goodCan Rob Lowe write as well as he acts? We’ll soon find out.

The actor is writing a memoir entitled “Stories I Only Tell My Friends,” which will be published by Henry Holt and Co. in May 2011, according to the Washington Post.

The insanely handsome actor will reportedly relate his experiences as an actor and father. Holt prez Stephen Rubin describes the book as “a mid-career meditation on his four decades as an actor.”

Lowe became a teen heartthrob in 1983’s “The Outsiders” and has appeared in around 30 films and many successful TV shows including “The West Wing,” “Brothers and Sisters” and “Parks and Recreation.”

But before you go thinking this book is gonna be a real snore, remember
that Lowe’s personal life has not exactly been scandal free.

]]>udd Nelson, Mare Winningham, Anthony Michael Hall, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez and Andrew McCarthy. Remember Rob in “St. Elmo’s Fire”? He won a coveted Worst Supporting Razzie for that role, an honor he never reprised.  In 1988, a sex tape of Lowe with two young girls — which seems tame by modern sex tape standards — was released. One of the girls was underage and the videotaping took place in his hotel room during the Democratic National Convention. Then there were the nanny lawsuits. In 2008 he sued three nannies for various things (breach of contract, emotional distress, etc) and they also sued him for various things (sexual harassment, etc). All the suits were eventually dismissed. But we can’t wait to find out the real skinny from Rob about the sex tapes and the nasty nannies.
