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.

Format: Paperback
This was probably already outdated the moment that it was published.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.

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.
