When Janice Dickinson left America's Next Top Model, the show started to fucking suck. She was the best part.
There is no longer anyone to call the model's fat cows or hump Tyra. *sigh*

I came across this book a few days ago and thought "This will be a fun, light read."
Just judging from the title alone, one would assume this book is about how to be shallow and fabulous, right?

It was so much more than that.
Janice is so smart and so funny and so interesting that it is upsetting that she was the "wor

This is the second book by Janice. I loved the first book alot about her life. The first book she was not afraid to name drop but this book she did not drop names on celebrities she had stories about. Reading the second book was about the ugliness of the modeling business and alot of stuff she already talked about from the first book about her life. It is a book to read for someone who wants to get into the modeling business especially for young girls. She also talks about how to take care of yo ...more

This book wasn't nearly as good as her first. It continues the semi-autobiographical theme by telling us stories that presumably weren't good enough to make it into the first book, although some are still pretty funny. She also gives random bits of advice, some of which are good and some of which are ridiculous, like the relationship and dating advice.

Another big issue here is Janice is promoting a pretty good message that what you see in the media is all airbrushed and its a level of perfection

Janice was never one of my favorites, but her sense of humor is hysterical sometimes. She can be self-contradictory and I found her disdain for plus-sized models annoying, but she seems to have no shortage of amusing antecdotes and the whole Mick Jagger thing laced throughout the book is pretty funny. (If she were as over him as she claims to be, I wonder, would she have bothered mentioning him over and over?) A funny, light read.

Janice Dickenson is the type of person you love to hate. I was hoping that her book would be more entertaining, but it just kinda struck me as a LOT of name dropping and bragging. And it's kind of posed like a self help book, as if she has things all figured out. Meh. Just not really buying it. It had its moments, just not really my thing.
Jan 06, 2009 Erin rated it did not like it
The first book was OK, even a bit funny at times. This one was intolerable. Poor Janice, but ugh. Not recommended for anyone. Not that you were lining up to read it or anything.

Recommends it for: model wannabes, women
Janice Dickinson tells it like it is. What I like about this book is that she admits to having plastic surgery b/c even she knows that she doesn't really look like her model pictures in real life. It's all airbrushing. (Why even use real models these days, anyway?) I don't agree with Dickinson's bashing of plus-size models. Why can't those girls get some love too? Shouldn't that be a healthier direction for society than saying "Look at this image that you'll never be able to attain and yet you'l ...more

Pretty much what you would expect if you saw her performance on America's Next Top Model.

I love Janice Dickenson- I find her very entertaining and i love the fact that she does not apologize for her opinion. Many people are put off or scared or offended by her but like i said- i like her.

This book was definitely not as deep or insightful into her life as her previous book "No Lifguard on duty" but it was in the true spirit of Janice- entertaining. She is still a name dropper but does not give as much detail and there is basically no plot. All Janice is doing is spewing advice about

I picked out this book in order to psychoanalyze a public figure for a high school psychology assignment. This is definitely not a book I would have picked out for my own reading. However, I enjoyed this read mainly because it was so different. It was all about the hardships of modeling, and Janice overcoming her childhood insecurities. Janice tells the stories so bluntly that they slap you in the face. Really, that's how Janice talks to everyone. She is a very strong figure and she can be rathe ...more

Just as fake and shallow as the title implies. I'm not sure how she has time for anything else with all of the maintenance required to keep her looking that fake. Throughout the book, she discusses her various daily rituals that she credits for helping her maintain her appearance. She has to spend a good 6-8 hours daily to get all of those rituals in. Who has that kind of time? By the time I was halfway through the book, I was questioning if this was actually fiction...

I don't remember anything about this book nor why I even read it except maybe I wanted the literary equivalent of trashy reality tv to read while on the train. I do recall being impressed with her honest admission of all her plastic surgery work and she's pretty opinionated, which is always kind of fun to read.

I haven't read her first book so I thought this one was interesting. However, I expected a lot more dish on celebrities she had dated. She mostly just complained about Sly being cheap and Mick not acknowledging her years later. After reading the other reviews, I will try to find her first book.
I paid 2.99 for this book. It was pretty good, funny, and what I expected. Janice doesn't disappointment and it's her voice, no matter who helped her with writing, editing, etc. A book you can put down and pick up intermittently (which I did) and not miss a beat to the end.

I love this woman. She is such a bitch but I love her anyway. I love the way she writes and the stories she tells. Her books are so captavating you can't put them down. I read this one in a few hours.

Surprisingly, enjoyed it very much. My "dumb" read for the summer, poolside. Very funny and love her no holds barred tale.
Janice Dickinson is amazing if only for her ability to sound at once totally honest and totally full of shenanigans. Bitch is crazy but you kind of have to respect her for it (lest she stab you).
