On October 2, 2007 Beth Holloway's book was released to the public. Many were anticipating this release, because Beth had been so vocal during the last 2 1/2 years regarding the details of the investigation into the missing Alabama teen. What had Beth gone through during her time in Aruba and why does she feel so strongly that this investigation was botched from the beginning? These are some of the things many hoped would be answered in her book.
The book release was only one element of the story. Prior to its release, it would appear that Fox news commentator Greta Van Susteren would once again submerge herself in the story with a trip back to Aruba. Her trip, with Beth would stir up some anger again between the two sides that seemed opposed to how they see the details of this case.
Needless to say there would be media appearances, book signings and publicity as with any famous persons, book release. Hopefully I will be able for once write the events as they are happening, which will be a unique opportunity in this long unsolved mystery.
Two years before Beth Holloway had been honored by Barbara Walters as "One of the Most Fascinating People of 2005."
Walters Names Camilla Most Fascinating
November 30, 2005
Barbara Walters named Prince Charles' new bride, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the most fascinating person of 2005 in an hour-long "20/20" special.
The former Mrs. Parker Bowles was selected for her dramatic, star-crossed love story that culminated on April 9, when she finally wed her Prince Charming.
As for Walters' nine other "most fascinating" people of the year, they are:
Tom Cruise: America's No. 1 opponent of prescription drugs, champion couch-jumper, bane of Brooke Shields' existence ... and soon-to-be father of fiancee Katie Holmes' child.
Condoleezza Rice: On Jan. 26, 2005, Rice became first black female Secretary of State.
Jamie Foxx: Won Best Actor Oscar early this year for "Ray," and was the first African-American to be nominated for two Oscars in the same year.
Kanye West: Rapper famously said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" during a live Hurricane Katrina telethon.
Thomas Mesereau: Successfully defended Michael Jackson against child molestation charges.
Lance Armstrong: Cycling champion won his sixth consecutive Tour de France this year, faced accusations of doping and got engaged to rocker Sheryl Crow.
Ubiquitous child star Dakota Fanning appeared in "War of the Worlds" and "Dreamer" this year.
Beth Holloway Twitty: Mother of teenager Natalee Holloway, who mysteriously disappeared while on spring break in Aruba.
Teri Hatcher: Before Hatcher became a "Desperate Housewife," she was best known as a washed-up actress.
Lifetime Television Premiers the Movie, based on Beth's book, Loving Natalee. Read all about the missing Alabama teen. Continuous updates here:
| "Loving Natalee," the book written by Beth Holloway, the mother of the Mountain Brook teen who disappeared in Aruba, is coming out in paperback at the end of this month.|
The book release on April 28 will follow the airing of a LIfetime TV movie based on the book on April 19. Tracy Pollan stars as Beth Holloway, and newcomer Amy Gumenick is Natalee in the TV movie.
As Beth's book is released in paperback controversy still surrounds this case. The Kalpoes are engaged in a lawsuit against Dr. Phil. Joran's confession to Peter de Vries pot smoking pal Patrick caused many to believe that Joran was indeed still the only true prime suspect. John Q Kelly would be seen less on television and even Bill O Reilly, Jossy, Greta and Julia Renfro's interviews were fading from the cable news shows. As of yet no real evidence has been found and certainly a body has never been found. There still is "No Evidence of a Crime!"
