Book Review…Drinking and Tweeting

Ok, let me go on record and say, this is NOT the type of book I would normally look at and be like, OH yeah let’s read this. I found it at my friends house. I asked about it, she said it was good and mindless. She got one part right, it was mindless. With that being said, it was exactly what I needed while I lay at the beach and soak up the sun. Is it a book that I would recommend?? Yes and no. Yes, it’s a life lesson on how women should NOT behave in a marriage. No, because it was childish and all over the place. She can’t seem to let go of her ex.

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.

Let this book be a lesson and warning for you. Do not depend on a man, make your own way and trust yourself.

I had no idea who Brandi was. However, I do know who LeAnn and Eddie are. This book is about them, told by Brandi – the jaded ex. I wonder what their side of the story would be like? Probably not much better. Yet, when you are a down-and-outs ex-wife who needs money write a book. While I get that she needs to support her kids, I can’t help but wonder where her money went from modeling.

It was a quick and pointless read, great for laying in the sun at the beach. I didn’t have to think too much. Other than to wonder, WTF!
