Georgianne "Gigi" Levangie Grazer is an American novelist and screenwriter. She attended UCLA, where she majored in political science. Her Hollywood career began as an intern on a late-night talk show, for which she wrote sketches; she later became an assistant to producer Fred Silverman, who dissuaded her from attending law school by offering her a substantial raise and writing assignments for the television series In the Heat of the Night.

Grazer is the author of five novels: Rescue Me (2000), Maneater (2003), which was turned into a Lifetime miniseries, The Starter Wife (2006), which was adapted for a 2007 miniseries on the USA Network. Its success led to a regular series that lasted one season. Her fourth novel, Queen Takes King, was released in 2009, and is being developed by Lifetime for a television movie. Her fifth novel, The After Wife, was published in 2012. She has written numerous magazine articles, featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour. She recently published "Wasbands and Wives, Seven Reasons to Stay Married", in Huffington Post.

Grazer's screenplay for the Susan Sarandon-Julia Roberts film Stepmom was based on her experience dealing with husband Brian Grazer's children Riley and Sage from his first marriage. Grazer is a host and judge for the Logo original series The Arrangement, a floral arranging competition reality television series. She has also appeared as a guest judge in Seasons 2 and 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race on Logo.

Personal life
In her 20s she was married to an "alluring Indian, Italian, African-American blues musician." They separated after three years and later divorced. She met Brian Grazer by accident at Orlando-Orsini on Pico at a lunch with a Playboy executive. They dated for six years and married on September 20, 1997. Gigi and Brian Grazer have two sons. Two weeks after her novel, The Starter Wife, was published (in 2006), Brian filed for legal separation. The two later reconciled; however, Brian filed for divorce on June 8, 2007, citing irreconcilable differences after nearly ten years of marriage. (From Wikipedia.)
