Money Q&A with Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe's new memoir, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends," is most impressive for its account of Lowe's prestigious lifelong cadre of friends. Over the course of a career that has taken him from the Brat Pack to "The West Wing," and now to one of the funniest shows on television, NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Lowe has partied with stars from Andy Warhol to Charlie Sheen, and his memoir spares none of the dirty details.

Are there still a lot of things you splurge on, or are you more frugal?

I'm willing to spend money to create memories for my kids -- and our time together. If it's a trip or taking advantage of an opportunity, I will do whatever it takes.

In terms of actual things, I'm not one of those guys who collects Vipers or Shelby Cobras, or has a rare book collection. It's more about how am I living my life on a daily basis in terms of ease and fun.
