Book Description

She’s the brutally honest breath of fresh air on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, known for her dramatic divorce, her barely-there clothing, and her inability to keep her mouth shut. So why should she change now? Brandi Glanville tells all in this hilarious, no-holds-barred memoir.

Fans have been waiting for Brandi’s scoop on one of the biggest divorces of the decade, since her husband of eight years abandoned her and their two sons to marry country singer LeAnn Rimes. Not only does Brandi spill the beans about her side of the split, the lovable housewife shares the incredible wild ride that took her from a life in the ghetto to Hollywood’s most elite circles. For the first time, Brandi talks about how she escaped a rough neighborhood on the outskirts of Sacramento and stumbled into a successful modeling career that swept her into a world of Paris Fashion Weeks, private jets, and uncircumcised penises. Before she knew it, Brandi was the perfect Hollywood trophy wife—at least until her marriage exploded.

Today, the refreshingly filter-free housewife and unapologetic mom is the newest full-time cast member of Bravo’s juggernaut franchise, where she often elicits raised eyebrows and gossip from her costars for her refusal to be the scorned ex-wife, to be bullied, to change her sarcastic sense of humor, or—on most occasions—to wear a bra. Sassy, raunchy, and compulsively readable, Drinking and Tweeting perfectly captures Brandi’s open-book attitude, as she dishes about everything from her DUI, her cheating ex, her one-night stands, and the secret plastic surgery that made her “seventeen” again. You’re sure to enjoy every page of this funny, upbeat, honest tale. Clear your schedule for an afternoon and grab your favorite cocktail, a comfy seat . . . and maybe a Xanax. But that’s for later.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“Is there a Pulitzer category for memoirs by jilted reality stars who like to talk smack about ex-husbands and "bonus moms?" Because if so, this book should win it... The best piece of celeb literature we've ever come across." (Ali Trachta LA Weekly.com)

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! Celebrity Gossip Lover's Wet Dream!! February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book opens with a bang (wink, wink) and doesn't stop. If you are someone who reads the weekly celebrity gossip magazines, blogs, etc. this is a dream come true. Brandi Glanville does in this book what fans of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are use to, she opens up her unfiltered mouth and doesn't close it until its all out there, warts and all.(almost literally;) Brandi is rare, especially by celebrity standards. She doesn't just dish other's dirt, she is more than willing to disclose her own short-comings, mistakes, criminal mischief, sexual exploits and...well...pretty much anything else that comes to her pretty little mind. It is a hilarious read that had me laughing out loud. And while Brandi as much as admits herself that she doubts anyone reading is looking for real life advice, she does give some really good information in her reflections, if you are willing to accept it. I would very much recommend this book. But it is not for the uptight, as she rarely sensors herself and at times has you asking, "Where is this chick's publicist?" There are many amazing one-liner's that will, no doubt, go viral. I say more power to you Ms. Glanville!! Any book that has me reading through the night because I just can't put it down, is a best seller and money well spent. Bravo Brandi!

5.0 out of 5 stars THOU SHALT NOT STEAL!! February 21, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First let me state I am 70 years young and still believe that stealing someone's husband is very
wrong. You know my concern here for LeAnn would be:
#1. Did he select me because I had more money and was a bit more famous????
#2. Does he "really think" that I am unattractive ??????
#3. When (not if) will he cheat on me!
Brandi, just keep on living your life I really admire you!

5.0 out of 5 stars #Don'tMessWithBrandi February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let's be honest here for a moment shall we?

Stealing Brandi Glanville's husband could possibly be the worst career mistake Leann Rimes ever made ... even worse then Coyote Ugly (and that's saying MORE then a lot). And within the pages of the biography, she's going to pay for it dearly.

Drinking and Tweeting is a salacious book from the open line directed to "v***** owners and gays", full of sound advice from a woman who has "been there and done that" ... some will call this book drivel and others will claim this book is the downfall of literary greatness. But, it's also the book that lifts the veil on divorce, infidelity and rebounding from heartbreak with a lot of humor and not a lot of grace. But ladies, or um ... "v***** owners" ... we've all been there.

Glanville pulls no punches and cuts a lot of teeth at the expense of others ... and why shouldn't she? This is, after all, her story. She pulled the short stick, might as well profit from it ... Leann has her music, Brandi has her whit ... to which I say, touché! One is definitely more entertaining then the other.

We've seen a lot of books from the housewives over the years from Taylor Armstrong's disastrous novel to Kyle Richards preachy offering. But Drink and Tweeting is by the far the closest one to truth.

By Caz

Cannot put this book down. It is witty and charming but heart breaking at the same.
Brandi speaks to the real person who is inside all of us, the one that doesn't come out enough.
Read this book you will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real. February 12, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wow. Curiosity had me check this book out. I couldn't put it down. The book really resonates with you. Anyone who can't appreciate the frankness and brutal honesty of this book is an idiot. While I do not "do" reality TV and wasn't aware of the whole backstory, I was curious about all the hype. I'm glad I checked it out. . A book that can create such poweful sentiments with just words whether positive or negative is definitely worth the read. As a mother it made me furious. As a woman i was inspired. I guess this book is her gift to him that will just keep on giving. :)

Def. worth the price....ladies and gay-it will not disapoint:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read. Happy to know her side. February 12, 2013
By Em Rowe
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read a lot of the housewives books and go into them completely for entertainment value, because let's be honest, it's "reality" television, not rocket science here. But unlike the other books that I've read by these "stars" where they seem to perpetuate their faux-fabulous lives, Brandi is refreshingly honest in her book, being the first to point out her flaws, where she went wrong, what she would have done differently, and most importantly, how she is changing to make her and her boys life better. Yes, she goes in on her ex-husband and some may be tired of hearing it. Yes, she says some negative (albeit hilarious) things about his wife that are simply jabs (read: she calls her the washed up country singer, mentions about her teeth being oversized, etc) but all of that is neither here nor there for me, being that she has had to deal with a whole lot of taunting from them via social media photographs, staged photographs, etc.

Overall, I bought this book because I wanted to read Brandi's side. Not the one that UsWeekly tries to paint, or the one Star Magazine likes to tell, or what the bonus Mom of her children cares to tweet. No, I wanted to know Brandi's, because she deserved to tell her story in any means she felt fit. I walked away not only knowing her truth, but also having gained a lot of respect for her. It is clear that at the end of the day, she is simply a Mom who lives her life for her children (and takes care of herself in a non-selfish way). Sincerely hoping she can find a great love in her life and that she can move on from this chapter now that her side has been told.

Great read!
