Terry McMillan: Single and Selling at $3.3M


Many divorced women in their fifties look forward to starting a new chapter in their lives. Terry McMillan is one of them. The famous author of über-chick books and the film adaptations, "Waiting to Exhale" and "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," is starting her new life by listing her Danville, Calif. home for sale at $3.3 million.

Danville is an affluent neighborhood on the eastern (and sunniest) edge of the Bay Area. McMillan moved there 15 years ago to raise her son, and she enjoyed her time there but now, as McMillan recently told the Contra Costa Times, "for a 58-year-old single black woman, Danville's not exactly a rockin' place."
