When we caught up with Paulina Porizkova earlier this week at Ali Wentworth's book release party, she revealed that she's writing something "sort of memoir-ish" herself — a chronicle of her problems with anxiety and antidepressants (a topic she's previously written about for the Huffington Post).  She's only 50 pages into it, and admits she's struggling to inject humor to her life's misadventures the way Wentworth did. "She's brilliant! She's a brain. I'm a model," Porizkova said. Plus, Wentworth's family and friends are a little more forgiving. "Her mother is so cool," Porizkova said. "Ali can write anything about her mom, and her mom just goes, 'Oh, Ali! You're so silly.' If I wrote that stuff about my mother, she'd probably stab me and kill me. The kind of stuff I would say about people would probably get me hurt."
