Well, I guess I thought it would be full of sex.
The author is so snobbish and full of herself. She perpetually reminds the reader, that unlike the other girlfriends of Hugh Hefner (there were five to seven during the the time the events in this book took place), she graduated from law school. However, for someone who thinks she is so smart and well educated, she seems to have missed learning simple, basic grammar rules. (She co ...more
- After absorbing the whole thing, Izabella seems like the catty one though she tries to make others look bad. She comes across like an entitled brat in several parts of the book. The part that struck me the most was she talked about how Hef will get them as much plastic surgery as they want, but he would not pay her law school loans off for her. True that may be a selfi ...more
I give the girl credit for telling her story. I shouldn't judge as my writing isn't the best but this is a published book. Did anyone read it first?
First, I think she wants to give everyone a history lesson to prove how smart she is. Then she wants to let you know is isn't about the money. She then complains that Hef won't pay her law school loans. She then lets you know how catty it was but what great memories she ...more
I finished the book this morning and while I did find it extremely easy to read I got no sense of bratiness, dishonesty, of her being a goldigger, etc. I got that she's a sweet, complex girl who happened to be offered a chance most people will never see, and took that chance. Not only did she take it but she learned from it, made some new friends, and had A LOT of fun.
Her wanting Hef to pay some bills doesn't ...more
If you like to watch The Girls Next Door or are just curious about the inner workings of the Playboy mansion, this book is a good read.
The book I read before this was about human trafficking, so I needed something easy and light to read. This book delivered some good gossip, especially about Holly and Bridget from the show 'Girls Next Door'. Other than that it really is just a shallow story about Izabella's time at the mansion and how her and her friends manipulated and took advantage of Hef. I do believe he is a human collector of blonde women. Somewhat similar to theme I read about in the story o ...more
She may have enjoyed the 'perks' of being a Hefner trollop like the $1,000 dollar a week 'allowances', the free plastic surgery, the 'fame', new cars, etc. but when it all comes down to it you still have to occasionally have sex with a disgusting old man.
To me the 'fame' (which is it really positive fame? Because ...more
I was a little put off by all the side stories about little catfights between the girls in the house and felt like a lot of these could have been c ...more
It is a fun book to read and anyone who is a Playboy fan or Girls Next Door fan will love this.
