Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Television personality and former soap star Rinna has the charisma and outsized ego to stay afloat in the treacherous seas of Hollywood show business, but even haters have to concede that her feel-good TV persona has both heart and staying power. Here, the Dancing with the Stars contestant makes an effective leap into print with an extra-positive, quick-witted, all-purpose self help. Rinna's small-town Oregon background helps her keep advice practical and affordable, for the most part. (Her exhaustive three-week big event preparation-facials, spray tans, masks, mani-pedis-might be a bit much for your average working woman.) Where Rinna excels, however, is sharing her insecurities and her methods of overcoming them; it's easy to forget a constant TV presence can struggle with the same anxieties as any woman regarding diet, marriage and work-life balance. In addition to dishing on life in the spotlight, her famous lips and sex with her husband Harry Hamlin, she also reveals her struggles with post-partum depression. Throughout, she remains cheery, humble and helpful.

I picked this book because I like Lisa Rinna. After reading it, I still like Lisa Rinna, but the book doesn't live up to the portion of the title that proclaims "Getting Your Best Life Ever."

Keep in mind that the secondary reason I selected the book is that I'm in the author's age range and, therefore, in the demographic she probably hopes to reach.

But there's the rub.

This is a thin book, and other than some personal revelations and the occasional new tidbit of advice, it's comprised of information any woman who ever read Cosmo fairly regularly would have read decades ago and claims with no science to support them.

There are certainly good suggestions there, things any woman can do, as well as things out of the price range of most. Now, personally, I don't mind rich people spending money how they like -- it's theirs to spend. However, this book is so thin that it can't stand to lose to things that most of the readers can't implement. All this would have been fine in a more substantial book.

Ms. Rinna likes fads, too. And psychics. And anecdotal evidence. Which would make her a fun friend, sure, but it's of limited helpfulness here.

I'm okay with women getting plastic surgery. I think anyone who proclaims they like Lisa Rinna would probably be tolerant on the topic, but what does the average woman do with Ms. Rinna proclaiming getting some was the only thing that made her able to feel like rolling in the sheets with Harry Hamlin? She spends a lot of time talking about creams and exercise and drinking water and a good outlook, but when all of that is done, it becomes about the surgeon's knife defining her sense of self-worth.

She takes it as a given that people should drink 8-eight ounce glasses of water. Okay.

I began watching Lisa Rinna years ago on Days of Our Lives. She was always beautiful and captivating, so I was very excited when I saw that she had a book about her struggles and triumphants with beauty and life! This book was a quick read. It has over 200 pages, but the font size is large, and the style is easy to read. Lisa does a great job of keeping the reader engaged in what she is trying to explain. Most of her topics were interesting, some were not applicable or did not relate to me. When she talks in detail about skin treatment, facials, and other beauty regiments, she loses me. A lot of her focus is on outer beauty. I am okay with that as long it is focussed on making you feel better; I don't think women should get so hung up on their outer beauty that they miss enjoying life on a more intimate level.

Lisa speaks on different enhancement procedures that she's had, and I appreciate her honesty. She is a beautiful girl with great advice. She concentrates a lot of her book on her marriage and things she does to make her personal life more intimate. Even Lisa Rinna has struggled with some depression and feeling inadequate. She has some good insight into how she dealt with each of those issues.

Lisa writes this book as a real woman with some of the same issues that we all face. Although she's never truly 'struggled' with her weight, she has had baby weight to lose. She has some ideas about weight loss that are scientifically supported and easy to adapt. She believes in eating small, healthy meals throughout the day. She also gives some details about cleansing the liver and going on a liquid fast to cleanse the system. Her recipes are an added bonus!

Lisa is one of those weird ones who actually enjoys exercise! Yuck!

This book reminds me of they type of book beauty queens like Raquel Welch and Victoria Principal wrote years ago spiced up with notes on sexuality. It will date quickly and is very personalized. Here Rinna bares all about what works for her. The book covers her fitness, beauty, spiritual, fashion and sex life. Essentially the reader is to use this tips to "rinnavate" their own life and become as happy and healthy as Lisa. Lisa has developed a program that really works well for "her" but it is so personalized and she uses such a mix of things whether it will work well for others seems unlikely.

For diet Lisa explains how she uses or has used a mix of "Fit for Life", "Zone", "The Blood Type Diet", detox plans, and eating small meals frequently, but goes on to say that her plan isn't really a "diet". One is left curious about what Lisa's plan really is.

Lisa suggests keeping up with your looks with injectibles but shares that she messed up her lips using them. She shares tips on how to whip your skin into shape but confides that she used the hard to get prescription accutane to get her acne under control. She shares home beauty secrets such as using Preparation H under the eyes. Use of Preparation H, in an area it was not intended for, could potentially be damaging.

Lisa's fashion tips have merit. She shares buying quality over quantity. But she also shares how she was once unable to join an event because she was wearing pants and they were not allowed. She had to wait in a small room. She enjoys telling this tale and others and it appears she likes to "shock the epater" ie shock the middle classes. Most of us can't pull off shocking the crowds and will look like fools instead. Often wearing appropriate clothing is best.
