Wise beyond her years?

Teri Hatcher, the slapstick star of "Desperate Housewives," will write an "inspirational collection of life lessons and advice," to be published next spring.

Hatcher is 40. And was voted "Most Likely to Become a Solid Gold Dancer" in high school.

The book, to be published by Hyperion Books, will probably be a best seller. But still, 40 seems a tender age to start officially telling other people what to do. After all, sisters Sadie and Bessie Delany waited until they were at least 100 to write Having Our Say.

It's a big question: When does a woman become wise?
