Drunk and Delusional?
Title: Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders
Author: Brandi Glanville with Leslie Bruce
No. of pages: 256
okay, so I have a something to admit...I used to watch the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
It's so embarrassing..but honestly, I used to love watching it. 'Used to' being the important phrase but that's a story for another day.
One of the housewives on the show was Brandi Glanville whose rise to fame was after her husband, Eddie Cibrian, cheated on her with a partially famous country singer, Leann Rimes, therefore ending their happy marriage.
Anyway, Brandi was always one of my favourite housewives because she says it how it is and doesn't take any crap from anyone. Plus I really respected the way she bounced back after all that infidelity and was a single mum to her two boys which, I think, takes a lot of guts.
So, because of that, I decided to pick up her new book, because honestly, I was in a bit of a reading slump and just wanted something easy breezy that would get be back on my game. Also like I said I respected (past tense) her a lot so I thought it would be a good read, lots of advice, tips, girl power that kind of thing.
Boy, was I delusional.
I'm going to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible (in case you want to pick it up) but honestly?
It's an absolute mess.
I mean, atrocious, seriously...I'd rather read fifty shades of grey again and that was some terrible writing ("quivering mess of raging female hormones" Are you kidding me???)
Where do I start?
Let me bullet point this for you:
- Her stupidity continues to astound me. I mean I feel sorry for her that she's been through a really tough time, but if your husband tells you he caught HPV from a lollipop, how do you believe that? I mean she seems well versed in everything else sexual but she doesn't know about one of the biggest, non-curable might I add, STI's after HIV?? WHAT????
- The reality star blames all the women caught with her husband and calls them various names -understandably. She blames social media for giving her a hard time, she blames Leann for taking her husband, she even blames her own intelligence, but her husband gets off scot free? Honey, it takes two to tango and if he was going to cheat he would've cheated on you even if you were the Queen of England.
- Brandi has opinions on very sensitive subject like rape and cyber bullying which I was horrified about. I mean "Sometimes no means yes"
Never, ever, in a billion years, not in the entire universe, not in the history of creation, nowhere does no means yes, No means no, and its not funny to joke about sensitive issues especially something like rape. Its disgusting.
- Apparently, if you're on any form of social media, you can't get upset if someone calls you ugly or fat, according to the la la land that is the home of Brandi Glanville ladies and gentleman. Also you can't get cyber bullied by someone you never met.
Long story short, if you want to read a scorned housewives bitter resentment towards her ex-husband and his wife, then this is the book for you.
"I typed my name in the news tab, and to my utter amazement, there was not
one mention of my ex-husband or his new wife"
Well, maybe you shouldn't have written a 250-page book about your ex.
