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.

Sharing her tips, recipes, beauty treatments, and fitness regimes, she gives specifics on her favs, some which are actually a reasonable price! Because she realizes we all don't get to experience top notch spa treatments, Lisa goes "Back to Basics" and has a nice lengthy list of homemade beauty treatments. I love this, and appreciate it! She's been on both side of the financial fence, and is generous in sharing reduced cost ways to pamper yourself.
She gets a little deeper and shares tough times in her life. She talks about her failed relationships, and Harry....her struggles with self esteem, postpartum depression, finding her path to happiness. I think many women can identify with Lisa's struggles, and it is comforting to know that you aren't alone.
Motherhood for her is something else I can appreciate...she does things her own unique way - which is fitting to her personality type. I am similar in that, and get interesting looks from supermoms =) She discussed her feelings about her body after her 2nd baby, and the effect it had on her sexuality and interacting with her husband. Boobs, gone...so she got a boob job, too bad she doesn't have any at home remedies for that!
This book is cute, lighthearted & fits her personality. Just be aware it gets a tad annoying at times =) She is open and honest, and thank you Lisa for that! Overall, I enjoyed this book...it's a keeper for me!
Written in 2009, published in 2010, this book is just like Lisa. She seems to be charming, cute, energetic. Fun, certainly, but I wouldn't take any of her advice seriously. This chapter lists outdated diet fads, such as The Blood Type Diet, The Zone Diet, The BBDO Diet. (Whatever that is) after saying in previous pages "I don't diet". When she "detoxes" for a Red Carpet appearance, she lives on lemon infused water with cayenne pepper, a protein bar for a mid morning snack, a salad with a ice tea for lunch, and only a cup of low sodium chicken broth with another salad for dinner!
I like Lisa, but this book is needing some updating. As well as editing! She comes off as very shallow, totally insecure. Jumping on every current media obsessed trend out there.. Oh, and gullible.. A weird psychic telling you that you need a curse removed, dear? Then soaking in a tub of ice water for an hour to "remove" it? Even desperate, I hate to say...Like I said, fun, if your girlfreinds are emotionally in the eighth grade. Don't don't expect too much ..I'm embarrassed for her.
I was very disappointed in this book. I am a Christian and not only because of the lessons on sex in this book and the self promoting, what convinced me put it down was her love of psychics.
I really wish I had never purchased this book!!!
Now for the contents: I noticed a few times, that she tells you a rule to follow and then tells you to basically break whatever rule that may be. For example: She says to "never starve yourself and always make sure to eat many small meals throughout the day" and then on the next page she says "that when preparing for an event, she often has only healthy shakes, etc." No real food! If you're like me, you have to have food, not a shake, to feel full.
She shares some lovely photos of her and her family in the book and I enjoyed seeing that side of her. I'm only use to seeing the person I see on tv, not the family person she is. I enjoyed reading about her life and the advice on intamacy the most. I love reading about those kinds of things anyway. That's just me.
There are times in the book when she tells you about different parts of her diet that she adapts from different books and diet plans. I enjoyed reading those, but they aren't her own, they are from another person. I just didn't see many original diet dos and don'ts. Everything, I had read somewhere before.
I found that some of the beauty tips she offers are out of my price range, but never the less, they are helpful and would be good things to try, if I was going to some huge event and needed to get beautiful really fast. I enjoyed the fact that she offers recipes for many of her beauty treatments. Now that, I can do. If you enjoy beauty/diet books, you will probably enjoy this one.
