Top model puts her mind to it and produces a book

Veronica Webb is a super-model with a mind.

The Revlon model-actress-writer proves it in her new book, "Veronica Webb Sight: Adventures in the Big City," which includes reprinted journalism work along with a 106-page biography."It's not quite `Angela's Ashes,' " Webb, 32, says in the Feb. 6 Entertainment Weekly. "It was one of the most painful things I've ever had to write. I got about halfway through, and I was looking at 30 or 40 typed pages.

"`I'm like, `Is this all my life amounts to?' I got really depressed, and I wouldn't get out of bed."

She found a way to finish - her reported payment in the high five-figure range no doubt helped.

The book features Webb reportage ranging from a defense of convicted rapist Mike Tyson and a chat with the elusive pop singer formerly known as Prince to her supermodel musings on makeup for Elle magazine.
