Dirty little secrets.... Every movie and TV star has one. So does every agent and manager. Some producers and studio execs have two or even three. I'm talking about an assistant. Someone to answer your phones, pick up your dry cleaning. Someone to hide your drugs. Your assistant knows what you eat, who you're sleeping with, and what medications you're taking. They listen in on your phone calls. They are the eyes and ears of Hollywood...and occasionally they talk.
Culled from dozens of interviews with former and current Hollywood assistants, Where's My F*cking Latte is a no-holds-barred insider's look at what really goes on behind Tinseltown's closed doors.

"I can tell you firsthand that what goes on behind the scenes of Hollywood's glittering facade is usually shocking, insane and full of sex offers. Where's My F*cking Latte perfectly captures the abusive and often hysterically unbelievable world of celebs and Tinseltown power-brokers and the culture of excess and entitlement they live in. Two thumbs WAY, WAY UP!" (Daniella Cracknell, Publicist to many of TV's iconic stars, such as Dick Clark, Howie Mandel, Geraldo Rivera, Mario Lopez to name a few...)
This book was a tease for juicy and titillating pop culture inside dirt. Sure we can guess who the celebs are, but clearly the author didn't want to spill too much so he can still work in the business. Barely kept me awake on a long drive.....
Oh no. What should have been a fun read (and it was fun when I read the preview pages to myself on Amazon) was a nightmare of overwrought "acting". Nemcoff is yet another Hollywood hack who decided a stunt book like this was his ticket to making rent. The content, culled from personal anonymous PA stories is not that bad. Sanitized and anonymized, but interesting. Unfortunately, his delivery comes off as a clumsy "Reading Rainbow" impersonation , as if the audience were children, intoning emotion and emphasis seemingly at random, with no value added to the tales. But don't take my word for it...
no, his voice is not nice to listen too
you could never tell if the story was from a man or woman's point of view. The voices he used were really annoying and his inflections sometimes made no sense. I found myself wanting the book to end a lot.
none in particular. they were all relatively the same. The stories weren't funny as much as repulsive. Nothing was overly unexpected
I read, I write, I paint, I am in love with my husband. I am better at reading than writing, as I will at least finish reading a book.
Though I did enjoy the sordid and crazy tales that some assistants were willing to share, I found myself wishing for more. The stories are told well enough that it's night on impossible to figure out whom the stories might apply to. They are also surprising enough that you may feel slightly disgusted, but hey - it's Hollywood.
I found Nemcoff's narration a little in your face. If it's possible, I'd say he YELLED the entire time - but I am sure it's down to the listener's interpretation. The only part I found slightly annoying was the lack of pause between stories.
Nary a second between one story to the next, if your ears blink, you will miss the end of one story and wonder how you ended up with a literary agent's sordid tale when you started with the skeleton of a promising young director.
No, I didn't like his voice. He did a good job writing the book and putting together the stories, but a different narrator should have been chosen.
I'd like to see a follow-up, since the stories were quite amusing. But definitely not narrated by Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff.
The narration was terrible! I couldn't tell where one story ended and the new one started. There was no pause in between chapters. Very confusing.
Absolutely not. He seems obnoxious.
Boreing. Nothing really revealed.
A better performer.
A waste of time and money.
