Of course I didn't follow the guidelines.
Deanna C. Seat
I mean what my title says, if you want to know what it feels like to have a lobotomy and colonsocpy at the same time, then read this book.
Chandra M. Jordan
This book is a waste of time and precious paper.

Steal this book. Then burn it. The public will thank you for your service.

I know what you are thinking. WHY would anyone want this book about this couple?? Well, I admit that if the publisher had not asked me to review this, I don't know if I would have even gave it a second look at the bookstore. Now if it is along side the tabloids at the supermarket, I might glance through it. In my opinion, that is exactly where it needs to be! By the trash mags! Of course, you are also thinking that if Speidi is reading this, they would be upset at what I said. I doubt it. For one, I don't think they would be reading my little blog. Two, they explain that no matter what kind of publicity it is, people are still talking about them. The book is suppose to be a tongue and cheek kind of read. Well, to me it was more like a try-not-to-vomit read. Heidi is so snobbish and stuck up that you can only tell she is spoiled and vain in the writing of this book. She continues to elaborate on how she was in playboy and other magazines(there something to tell your children) and Spencer tries to explain how to be a bad boy. There wasn't one thing I liked about the book. Even the color photos that are included, made me want to throw darts at it. Some of the photos were raunchy and had no class. If, you see this book next to the tabloids, you are better off picking up the latest one with BatBoy meeting the President!

As Joy said on The View - "This book is so stupid, I can't believe it's not written in crayon." Their 15 minutes are up. Please return to your regularly scheduled programs.

I read the book and guess what, I am NOT famous. Of course I didn't follow the guidelines. Such as be the villain, befriend someone and turn on them. You could also use a current BFF or family member if you want. Learn their weakness and deepest darkest secret to use or hold until needed. Hire a personal trainer, personal shopper, and plastic surgery may be needed. Always look your best, go to where the "paps" are to get photographed.
This is not a book for those who are easily influenced. If you follow the books guidelines you will be penniless and all alone.

First of all I want to clear something up....I did not BUY this book. I read through it at a local bookstore because I knew it would be a waste of money. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. The couple openly admits to only writing the book to help in their quest for fame. You are helping these two souless losers by purchasing the book...even if you just throw it away. Go to a book store and take a glance before buying online. You will thank me later! Just send me the money for the book and I will meet you somewhere for a swift kick in the junk. You will come out ahead.

I would not waste on second of my precious time on this.

I am sure that I recognized this kind of person when I was in grade school. In fact I could see the shallow and self absorbed killing themselves getting into this drivel.

Who would aspire to this anyway? I am sure I would not want to associate with anyone who would even consider it. This is the kind of balderdash that is ripping out the moorings of our society. Rewarding people who do not deserve reward. Creating a "class" of people who have nothing of value to add.

The only way I could consider these type of people of any value is to invite them to my party as entertainment like so many clowns. Don't amount to much more than the crepe swags and confetti (of which would have much more integrity) to be swept up next morning and deposited in the trash can.

Someone mentioned this is a very thin book. duh? That in itself should speak for itself.

Do not bother with this book. Everything is fake with these two (who shall remain nameless): the text of this book, her face, body, their show, etc. If you must gasp at this train wreck, do so at the bookstore or wait until this summer when the book will be sold at yard sales for a quarter. Yuck.

From the Publisher's Review: "With Heidi and Spencer as your personal coaches, you, too, can transform yourself into a red-carpet-ready superstar!"

Are they kidding? Is this for real? That if I am stupid enough to follow their advice, let alone buy this book (I flipped thru it at the library), that I'll be a superstar? Maybe I'd believe this if I was 12 years old or had a lobotomy.

There are legitimate writers struggling to get their books published, yet these two self-absorbed morons who have done nothing to contribute to society get a book deal. Unbelievable. This book is a waste of time and precious paper. Nothing they said was memorable. Don't bother.
