Editorial Reviews

Review

"I now have a girl crush on Babe Walker! Laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-Cosabellas funny."―Tori Spelling, author of Uncharted TerriTori

"White Girl Problems makes me laugh a lot, and cry a little. It's about time someone drew our attention to the devastating reality: White girl problems are all around us . . . absolutely hysterical."―Susan Sarandon

"Babe Walker will be your new best friend and worst enemy. I loved it!"―Emma Roberts

"The epitome of the urban socialite you love to hate."―Time magazine

"A social satire in the guise of a memoir. . . . The most artful elements are the charming fashion illustrations peppered throughout Walker's half-million followers on Twitter and the public's bottomless appetite for news about real-life socialites like the Kardashians prove that a large audience for this story does exist."―Booklist

About the Author

Babe Walker lives (and very occasionally works) in LA. Her creators are David Oliver Cohen, Tanner Cohen, and Lara Schoenhals, all actors and writers who live in both New York and LA.

Got this book just as something easy and mindless to read. It definitely served that purpose. When I finished I was left thinking "What the...? Did anything even happen?" As someone who truly enjoys reading for leisure, not necessarily to stimulate my brain, this book made feel as though I actually became less intelligent by reading it. #Crappybookselectorproblems

Format: Paperback
At first, White Girl Problems seems geared only towards the younger generation, i.e. twentysomething Orange County babes strutting around in Prada and Louboutins on their college campus, but in fact, this "memoir" appeals to anyone who loves to poke fun at the upper class' ridiculous, out-of-touch "problems."

For any of you who have indulged in watching the tasteless and tacky behavior of the Real Housewives and catching up on the latest celebrity gossip of Kim Kardashian and Lindsey Lohan, this book is a MUST-READ! But I found it particularly appealing because of how timely it is. We all love to live vicariously through the lives of the rich and the famous. Babe Walker is one of these gals. Though I love to read her ridiculous stories, in real life I'd probably hate her. She's the type that says, "You're either gonna love me or hate me." To which I will respond, "Well, I'm guessing nobody really likes you."

White Girl Problems works because we are exposed to these types of women (both young and old) every day through television and news outlets. The upper class no longer live mysterious gated lives. We all have gone to school with a Babe Walker, or seen a Babe Walker break down in tears in her limo on national television. Even in our own lives, we can relate to a birthday party devolving into chaos, our own fluctuating weight issues, the constant barrage of angry texts we send to an ex, lover or scorned best friend, and the inevitable phone calls we receive the next morning from a hungover pal saying, "I don't know where I am...come get me."

If Bridesmaids was the female equivalent to The Hangover, then White Girl Problems is the female equivalent to Tucker Max's I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. It's crass, outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny!

As Babe Walker might say, money doesn't buy happiness, but I'd rather cry in a mansion.

A couple of observations:

1. I really, really wish I hadn't actually paid real money for this book.
2. If this is a "memoir" then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell.
3. Had this been a movie, I would have walked out of it on an airplane.

Format: Paperback
A few days ago, I read a profile in the Daily Beast of the brothers Tanner and David Oliver Cohen and Lara Schoenhals, a trio who had used Twitter to create the character of Babe Walker, an ultra-spoiled Los Angeles rich girl who makes rather offbeat comments. Babe's tweets proved to be such a hit that they have put together a book, White Girl Problems. I just finished the book and was delighted; Babe Walker is a wonderfully outrageous character. We learn that she is in rehab for a shopping addiction and feeling that her fellow patients are being unsympathetic, she tells us her life story. Babe is the daughter of a high-powered entertainment lawyer and enjoys being in the idle rich class. Perhaps Babe knows best; her college years prove less than successful (five schools in three years and she never graduates). She has a roller coaster of a romantic life. She loses her virginity to a gay friend. She has a nasty alter ego she calls Babette, who can toss a monkey wrench into a relationship. Babe dates a DJ named Cameron who seems great, but to say more would spoil the surprise. Babe is not a career girl ("Why do people really have jobs? Does no one value free time?")but she gives work a try. She fails to understand that being an entry-level assistant in Dad's law office is not the same as being an actual lawyer and is stunned to learn that she is to work in a cubical ("Where is my real office? My interior designer and my feng shui master will be here any minute, so I should get a feel for the space before they arrive.") When Babe's therapist dozes off during a session, Babe reads her notes and cannot figure out why this woman thinks Babe has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. If you liked the wild humor of "Absolutely Fabulous", White Girl Problems is another terrific look at people who have more money than common sense.

Book was good, it was an easy read. You come to like and hate Babe, but definitely not love. But a fun book to read on a rainy day.

Whether Babe Walker is real or not was the last decision I had on my mind after reading White Girl Problems. She does't claim to have the cure for us Husky girls who know they can't attend a sample sale for Alexander McQueen... like that would ever happen. But it's a story that is still growing. Give the girl some credit! She has gone though her own issues, and quite gracefully for the most part. After reading this book, I feel confident that we would slay in a game "Never Have I Ever". Babe is realistic in telling her stories, whether they happened or not. I think this is a character I would be friends with. I would how grocery shopping, and split up the groceries. Veggies and fun ice cube trays for her... actual food for me.

Regardless, I recommend this book to any girl in her mid-late twenties who needs a laugh and a coupe of life lessons as seen through the eyes of someone who could financially afford to make them right in the end. It's very Jennifer Lancaster-esque for those of us who feel we are too young to connect over a husband and a home. But it's Walker...telling a story about what happens before you get there...or a fantasy novel for those who don't think they ever want to get there.

I found myself laughing out loud plenty of times at the easygoingness of Babe Walker. She says the things I want to say, gets the boy or "boy" she wants so effortlessly all by just being herself. She doesn't change who she is at any point, she simply grows up a little. I usually read memoirs or celebrity biographies, and this is by far one of the best books I have read in a while. If you did not laugh while reading this book, you might want to check with someone because you may not know how to read.

I hope to see more from Babe Walker! PS - The sketches in the book - Brilliant! I loved each one and might frame them.
