Fibs about shopping top the list of tall tales women spin to get what they want in the world, says the author of a new book that rips the lid off the secret lives of gals. "Women lie more cleverly and successfully than men," says Susan Shapiro Barash, the author of "Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets: The Truth About Why Women Lie." "They lie as a survival technique but also to get what they want." After interviewing 500 women across the country. Barash discovered:
  • About 75% of women hide how much money they spend. These women confessed to stunts like sneaking purchases home and hiding price tags.
  • The second most common reason for women to lie is cheating. About 60% of the gals confessed to having had an affair.
  • Motherhood comes in at number three on the hit parade of female falsehoods, with about 50% of moms having mixed feeling about rearing their kids.
  • Women often lie to get what they want from people, including lovers, co-workers and bosses.
  • They also tell lies either to keep up appearances or one up others, including untruths about plastic surgery, children's accomplishments or husbands' success.
