This just came out, and it already seems pretty outdated. Otherwise, I enjoyed it.

This book will not make the earth move for anybody, but I watch the Housewives shows and hate to admit that, but it actually helped me out to see that the current economy has even had an effect on many of them. I wish there would be a Housewives of Green Bay. The book is a super fast read. A few things I didn't know, but mostly old stuff for me.

OK I admit that the Real Housewives are a guilty pleasure. Total brainless tv for when I need to feel smart and cultured. This book was total fluff and silliness but perfect to read on late night parent conferences weeks.

Plastic surgery, lies, cheating, hair pulling, prostitution, and table flipping… are you getting the idea yet? You are right girls and boys, I am talking about THE Real Housewives. This tell-all reality show began with Orange County Gates community women who transformed reality show life, as we know it. Coto De Caza and the women that surround the town entertain themselves with tennis to horseba

Shelves: fluff
Although I love this entire series, this book is horrible. Its written like a magazine with interviews and nonsense between articles. If you follow the series, there's really no point in reading because it's 4 years old and all the drama has changed.

that's right - I'm unashamed! this is an excellent reference book for all things Real Housewives. lots of backstories about how each one was cast and silly, catty stories. Andy Cohen is a genius and this book is really fun.

I like The Housewives, so I liked the book. Learned a few new things about my favorite, crazy gals. They need to write another book, now, because of the addition of Beverly Hills and cast changes.

This was just a compilation of quotes from the show and photos of the gals...was hoping for some personal tidbits or behind the scenes stuff, but no such luck
