(Synopsis from Goodreads)
Brandi Glanville may be the newest bad girl in Beverly Hills, but it’s impossible not to love her for always speaking her mind. In this brash, candid, and vulnerable memoir, she spills all of her secrets, dishing on her infamous divorce, motherhood, the plastic surgery that made her “seventeen” again, and much, much more.
She’s the brutally honest breath of fresh air on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, known for her dramatic divorce, her barely-there clothing, and her inability to keep her mouth shut. So why should she change now? Brandi Glanville tells all in this hilarious, no-holds-barred memoir.
Fans have been waiting for Brandi’s scoop on one of the biggest divorces of the decade, since her husband of eight years abandoned her and their two sons to marry country singer LeAnn Rimes. Not only does Brandi spill the beans about her side of the split, the lovable housewife shares the incredible wild ride that took her from a life in the ghetto to Hollywood’s most elite circles. For the first time, Brandi talks about how she escaped a rough neighborhood on the outskirts of Sacramento and stumbled into a successful modeling career that swept her into a world of Paris Fashion Weeks, private jets, and uncircumcised penises. Before she knew it, Brandi was the perfect Hollywood trophy wife—at least until her marriage exploded.
Today, the refreshingly filter-free housewife and unapologetic mom is the newest full-time cast member of Bravo’s juggernaut franchise, where she often elicits raised eyebrows and gossip from her costars for her refusal to be the scorned ex-wife, to be bullied, to change her sarcastic sense of humor, or—on most occasions—to wear a bra. Sassy, raunchy, and compulsively readable, Drinking and Tweeting perfectly captures Brandi’s open-book attitude, as she dishes about everything from her DUI, her cheating ex, her one-night stands, and the secret plastic surgery that made her “seventeen” again. You’re sure to enjoy every page of this funny, upbeat, honest tale. Clear your schedule for an afternoon and grab your favorite cocktail, a comfy seat . . . and maybe a Xanax. But that’s for later.
I bought a bunch of books from BOOK OUTLET in February of this year and this was one of the books. I remember it very clearly because I order both of Glanville’s books at that time. I also ordered the three books by Andy Cohen as well. I ordered other things in the order as well, but these books all seem to go together rather nicely.
Anyone that knows me knows that I have an unhealthy obsession with watching “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and that I am currently around the fifth season of it. Brandi Glanville joined near the end of the 2nd season and by far she is my favorite housewife, even if at times I want to tell her to calm down a tiny bit. It is mentioned that she wrote this book on the show and immediately I wanted to read it. I was made aware of it first by the fact that I was wanting to read Taylor Armstrong’s book “Hiding from Reality”, which I still want to read at some point. When the show mentioned though I knew that I needed this book in my life. I hope I get around to reading it sooner rather than later. It just seems like a fun read that will probably have me cracking up. Sometimes a book with humor is awesome. This seems like one I will greatly enjoy.
