  • Man Up!: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Ross Mathews, Gwyneth Paltrow (foreword), Chelsea Handler (afterword)

    As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wish there were more stories about his interactions with celebrities and his rise to the top.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was fun yet predictable.


    What does Ross Mathews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His fun loving personality


    What else would you have wanted to know about the authors’s life?

    More celebrity and career stories darling!

  • The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year

    Story
    (210)

    In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. We learn everything from which celebrity peed in her WWHL dressing room to which Housewives are causing trouble and how. Nothing is off limits - including dating.

    What would have made The Andy Cohen Diaries better?

    There was no real story or follow through. It is really like he is reading from his page a day diary. I was hoping for more tantalizing details and gossip amongst the crowd he hangs out with. Not so much. Instead you get way too much neurosis about whether or not he should get a dog, what he should name his dog, and what having a dog is like. Then, he talks about getting 90 minute massages every other entry. It drove me crazy! His life is way more interesting than this. I wish he would have put more juicy details.


    Has The Andy Cohen Diaries turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No way. I love memoirs.


    What about Andy Cohen’s performance did you like?

    It is true snarky, silly Andy.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed. I really enjoyed his first book. He opened up much more and his stories and depth and substances. This book is just a name drop haven.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money. Sorry Andy. I love you but not this book.
