Even though some football player from the New York Giants put a ring on Angie Harmon and took her off the market, the star of Rizzoli and Isles is still as attractive as ever. Men still want her, and women still want to be like her.
Harmon got her career started by walking down the runways for some of the world’s most prestigious fashion designers, and that led to Harmon wanting to give acting a shot. She got lucky when Baywatch star David Hasselhoff discovered her on a plane and got her acting career started. Hasselhoff knew right that moment that she would be perfect for the role of Ryan McBride on the Baywatch spinoff, Baywatch Nights. Harmon auditioned for the role, and she got the part and started her career in television.
Although she got her break into television, the role didn’t last long; however, she got a gig on another show called C-16: FBI in 1997. In the year that followed, Harmon got a role that made her a TV star: ADA Abbie Carmichael on the long running crime drama, Law and Order. She stayed on that show until 2001, and she even made appearances as Abbie Carmichael in several episodes of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
Since Law and Order, Harmon has made appearances in a few films, but she got back into the spotlight once again in 2010 on TNT’s hit TV show Rizzoli and Isles.
TNT’s Rizzoli and Isles fans in Washington will have a great day as bestselling author Tess Gerristen is slated to visit Washington High School Auditorium on October 5. The TV show Rizzoli and Isles is based on the bestselling novel by Gerristen, The Surgeon. The author of the hit show will be coming to Washington High School as part of the One Book One Community Program. The community chose Gerristen’s novel The Bone Garden for the project. It is community reading project wherein participants discuss parts of the book or ideas related to the book.
The book reading community project is not something new. Gerristen’s coming is the second time for Washington Carnegie Public Library to take part in the One Book One Community program. According to Washington Carnegie Public Library Director Teresa Heindenreich, the program is all about bringing people together and having something to share with each other. The program breaks down barriers of race, gender and culture.
Members of the community are invited to join the program. Library card holders can borrow a copy of The Bone Garden from the library from Mondays to Wednesday this week. Those who do not have library cards can still get a copy of the book. On Thursday, the library will be lending copies of the book to those who do not have library cards. The book is also available in different formats from the library. Library card holders may check out ebooks, audio and large print copies of the book. The event is open to the public.
The 3rd season of the hit TV show on TNT, Rizzoli Isles, will be out on DVD on June 11, and it’s going to be packed with wonderful extras and features for fans to sink their teeth into. The date of the DVD release for Rizzoli and Isles
was originally set for March 14, 2013 but for unknown reasons, the release date was pushed back to June 11, 2013. There have been no reported changes to the art packaging of the DVD or any of its features. It is more than likely that the studio wanted to place the release of the DVD in a month of the year where people will be more likely to purchase the DVD. Fans will still be able to pre-order the DVD on several sites.
Here are the DVD extras:

She is not your usual Hollywood actress. Angie Harmon is not just an icon celebrated by a lot of people.
The beautiful lead star of Rizzoli & Isles is bare and candid in her interview for the latest issue of More magazine. In the 15th anniversary issue of More magazine, Angie Harmon shared her personal thoughts on various issues, homosexuality for one.
In the interview, Harmon said that she is a liberal Republican. She even punched a joked about her belief and how Hollywood actors and actresses are not allowed to talk about politics unless of course if one is a Democrat. But that aside, Angie Harmon is straightforward with her stand on homosexuality. According to her, sexual preference does not matter. Straight or gay is not that much important.
She further told the magazine that all women get to experience the same situations, wonderful or horrific, women all gets to a point where their hearts get broken. She said that if a woman ever has to face disastrous issues in life, they can always go to therapy.
Harmon encouraged, hailed and gave praise to brave and courageous women who seeks the help of the professionals. She said the therapy is not a life long commitment, it does not have to take all your life. It only lasts until all the issues every woman is crying like a burden on their back are all gone and taken care of.
Meanwhile, Harmon has been all but poignant with the sudden death of her co-star Lee Thompson Young who was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday, August 19.
