TheDirty.com, a heavily trafficked online gossip sheet, was created by an entrepreneur by the name of Nik Richie—whose Iranian parents named him Hooman Karamian.

Richie’s appearances on programs like Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper 360, Nancy Grace, and 20/20 suddenly provided him with notoriety as the Internet’s bad boy, whose site is employed by angry ex-mates (of both sexes) t

Having always been a fan of TheDirty.com I knew when this book came out I wanted to read it. I was lucky enough to get an autographed copy and I dove right in while I was cruising away on a vacation. Nik has always been an intriguing person because he lives life how we all want to, with no apologies. He says what is on his mind and doesn't apologize about it. In a world where we only really want to hear the not truth from others, where we want to hear what makes us happy, not what makes us real, ...more

I'm glad I read this and got the story behind "the guy." I watched Nik and Shayne on Couples Therapy, and thought from the start that Nik was a pretty good guy, just misunderstood. This book shed a whole new light on it.

Pros:
* Interesting history/origin
* Insight into what it takes to run a website like The Dirty
* Asks the question of when does the persona become the person

Cons:
* Short in places
* Characters come in and out quickly

I enjoyed this from a psychological perspective. It was interesting seeing Hooman Karamian interweave between being himself and his alter ego Nik Ritchie,how fame and fortune corrupts but how Hooman manages it. His relationship with his wife Shayne Lamas didn't disappoint me either, very interesting read for one who studies relationships.

Only draw back is the book jumps around in chronology which makes it difficult to follow.

This book is awesome, but if you are a follower of The Dirty, there might be some things you wish were there. For me, ARI GOLDEN is never mentioned. Many of us fans of the site hated him when he was around, so I was hoping for some ARI stories, especially of him getting fired. Also would have liked some Solo Girls stories as well. Either way, great read -- I decided.
