Book Review for PRETTY MESS by Erika Jayne
PRETTY MESS by Erika Jayne
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A fun, authentic, and candid look into one of my favorite Housewives.
PRETTY MESS takes us into the life of Erika Girardi/Jayne with the same no holds barred attitude we have seen on TV. For fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and of her music, this is a book you will definitely want to read.
I will say this. At certain points, I wanted more from the author. I know every memoir is the journey of that person. We should respect what they are willing to give us, but sometimes I felt as if she was holding back. Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed getting a glimpse into her life and her history. There is something about Erika Jayne. She makes me want be more of a badass. Her strength and no-bull attitude is empowering.
About the Book:
Without her alter-ego Erika Jayne, Erika Girardi says she’d just be “another rich bitch with a plane”—so get ready for the dishy, tell-all memoir from show-stopping performer, model, singer, and beloved star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne.
Erika Jayne didn’t make it this far by holding back. Now, in her first-ever memoir, the fan favorite star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills bares her heart, mind, and soul.
In Pretty Mess, Erika spills on every aspect of her life: from her rise to fame as a daring and fiery pop/dance performer and singer; to her decision to accept a role on reality television; to the ups and downs of family life (including her marriage to famed lawyer Tom Girardi, thirty-three years her senior). There’s much more to Erika Jayne than fans see on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Pretty Mess is her opportunity to dig deep and tell her many-layered, unique, and inspiring life story.
As fun and fearless as its author, this fascinating memoir proves once and for all why Erika Jayne is so beloved: she’s strong, confident, genuine, and here to tell all!
