The podcast that takes you on a journey through the literary world of Bravo
Part II: A Little Thing Called Life by Linda Thompson
We're baaaaaaaaack with Part II of 'A Little Thing Called Life" by Linda Thompson. In the second half of the book, she gives us all the hot goss on her marriage to Bruce Jenner, their subsequent divorce after he comes out to her as a woman, and her relationship with David Foster, King of Narcissism. If nothing else, Linda Thompson has had the most interesting relationships with some of the world's most interesting partners and she doesn't hold back on details. She lays it all out on the table while still remaining a genuinely kind person, which can't be easy to do given what she's been through. All in all, this is a rare occasion where we DO recommend that you read it yourself. Two thumbs way up! Snaps for Linda!
We also try our best to catch up on Bravo, including recaps on RHOA (stripper-gate is upon us), RHOSLC Reunion Part II (a doozy as expected), and RHONJ is BACK BABY! Enjoy!
A Little Thing Called Life: On Loving Elvis Presley, Bruce Jenner, and Songs in Between by Linda Thompson
This week, we dive into Part One of a Bravo-adjacent book by Linda Thompson; friend of RHOBH, mother of Brody Jenner, ex-wife of Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn), and ex-love of Elvis Presley (ever heard of him?). The first half of the book focuses on the 5 years spent with her first love, Elvis and his untimely death shortly after they broke up. She doesn't hold back in giving us the details on their lives together, including the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is a TON of hot goss in a very well-written and thoughtful memoir that, surprisingly, we are both really enjoying reading so far. Next week will be the second half of the book, which details her relationships with both Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner and David Foster. Stay tuned!
In Bravo TV-land, we cover this week's AMAZING lineup, including the prelude to the infamous stripper incident on RHOA, the season finale of RHOSLC, Part 2 of the Southern Charm Reunion, and the premiere of Summer House! Enjoy!
Standing Strong by Teresa Giudice
This week we dive into Teresa's post-prison memoir, Standing Strong. It's her second book and fills us in on life after her stint in prison while her husband Joe is away serving time for mortgage fraud. Teresa says up front that this is a no-holds-barred tell-all regarding her current situation with her family, her husband, and her career. Sounds juicy, right? You might change your tune after hearing our review, we'll just say that.
Also, we discuss RHOA and our queen Porsha, part one of the explosive Southern Charm reunion, and how much we hate Jen Shah of RHOSLC. Also, Armie Hammer and ethical cannibalism (that's apparently a thing....?). Enjoy!
Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media is Ruining Romance by Brandi Glanville
This week, we dive into Brandi's latest New York Times bestseller (allegedly), Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media is Ruining Romance. Funny title considering she is the queen of social media and uses Twitter to announce on-the-fly Vegas nuptials, passive-aggressively shade her ex-husband, and exchange choice words with former flings who out her for having HPV. We get some very juicy dirt on the many men she's dated, or just slept with, and basically get a guide of what NOT to do when looking for the perfect man. In true Brandi fashion, the book is full of expletives, raunchy details, and shade to most of the men she's ever dated. it is JUICY, guys. Also, WAY too many #hashtags.
Speaking of juicy, we also dive deep into the Bravo universe that, over the last week, has been the gift that keeps on giving. #thankyouSouthernCharm ENJOY!
The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year by Andy Cohen
This week's episode is all about Andy Cohen and his seemingly endless list of A-list friends. In his book, inspired by the Andy Warhol Diaries, Andy takes us through a year of his life, through diary entries that detail the star-studded events he attends almost nightly, his struggle through Dry January, the adoption of his beloved dog Wacha, and LOTS of Housewives juice. This book is jam-packed with hot goss and hot people, so if you want an inside look into Andy Cohen's world, you'll love this one!
We also discuss everything in the Bravo Universe and would like to officially nominate Leva Bonaparte of Southern Charm as the new Queen of Charleston. Bravo, call us. Enjoy!
Blowing My Way to the Top by Jen Atkin
WE ARE BACK, BABY! After a little holiday hiatus, we have rejoined the podcast universe to bring you a rare non-Bravo book selection by hairstylist to the stars/boss ass bitch, Jen Atkin. She tells us of her religious beginnings as the adopted daughter of Mormon parents, living in Utah and Hawaii and how she always knew she just didn't fit in with that lifestyle. From there, she moves to LA to become a stylist and the rest is history. The book is a guide to finding your purpose and when you do, making your dreams a reality. It's full of information and tips from a true entrepreneurial QWEEN and we, for once, HIGHLY recommend you read it for yourself!
We also discuss Bravo from the last week and how we hope more than anything that Chris Samuels and Chris Bassett can keep their unrequited friendship alive. Enjoy!
