If you have someone in your life who loves the Real Housewives franchise, and is not internet savvy, this might be a good gift choice once the price goes down.

However, if anyone twitters, reads or looks at the photos already on Bravo and/or many other web news articles or blogs? It's just not worth it. Stories and photos are recycled, there is nothing really new if you spend any time on the internet, and frankly, there are some embarrassing inaccuracies.

As far as "insider information" or answers to the questions many fans would ask? No, not really. Even the story about the Danielle/Dina feud is already out there. Google will bring up much more information than this book does.

It's a pity really, because Bravo could have really had something here. Apparently Gretchen from OC gave them personal photos and stories, but none made the book, for example.

I will give it two stars because, FOR THE RIGHT PERSON, (fan of the show, someone who doesn't surf the net at all) this might be a fun little book.

Shame on you Bravo! This could have been so good.

By the way, the book tells Danielle's side of the Dina/Danielle feud. Dina has finally spoken about it, and her story is here: [...]

I bought this for my wife and she dictated the following: This book did not give any "inside knowledge". It was a bravo love fest. Don't buy it. It is a fluff piece and takes advantage of fans. I only gave it a star because I had to in order to post this review.

This is book is a pretty good book though I wish it included *The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills* but it was written before they started that show. Everything in the book is pretty old though like 2 Seasons ago I would love to see them write a new one all updated. It has tons of Pics & it is a pretty good size book. The only complain I have & Its not even about the book is I orded It used & It arrived in Great Condition Like New but I didnt recieve the book for over 4 weeks.

This was probably already outdated the moment that it was published. Promising a "behind the scenes" look at the Orange County, New York, New Jersey, and Atlanta franchises but it doesn't really give that. There's very little about reality television production here aside from a few mentions of the casting process, and the interviews with the housewives that make up most of the book are just reiterations of things that viewers have already seen on the show. It's kind of amusing, in retrospect, to see how hard Bravo Television pushed certain portrayals of Housewives that we now know were absurd, like Theresa Guidice's "fabulously wealthy" lifestyle that was built on forgery and bank and mortgage fraud, but for the most part there's really nothing in this book that a few hours of watching the shows wouldn't give you.

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 horseback riding and so much more. From the originally fabulous Kimberly Bryant, Jo De La Rosa, Lauri Waring, Jeana Keough, and Vicki Gunvalson these women have changed the world of reality. In this tell all book writers and directors give an in-depth look into the lives and troubles of each woman. These women gab about face lifts, their children, love hexagons, boob jobs, and weddings. Yet this isn't all that there is, so much more is divulged in this book.
As we progress to The Real Housewives of New York, these women fight with their claws out. Shall I make the introductions? Meet Jill Zarin, the New York native that has it all and knows everyone that needs to be known. She is a connection for EVERYONE. Ramona Singer anyone? She is the queen of opinions and always the instigator - many times she is referred to as Ra-mean-a- with no filter. My personal favorite is Bethenny Frankel who has many different careers in life from being the Hiltons' nanny, to a pashmina importer (to the right and famous), to representing Skinnygirl books/ margarita mix, and so much more. Kelly Killoren Bensimon a non- New York native- a model and ex wife to Giles Bensimon and the token glamazon. Countess Luann de Lesseps is the queen of etiquette and conduct and yet is she classy? Last but not least Alex McCord Brooklyn bound and the queen of fashion.
