"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

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.
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.
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.
