On the heels of her New York Times best-selling book Drinking and Tweeting, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville takes readers on a wild ride through her dating life in this highly entertaining relationship book.
Drinking and Dating chronicles Glanville’s misadventures stumbling through today’s dating world. From social media blunders to bedroom escapades, Brandi withholds nothing. Each chapter is inspired by a relationship encounter she has had since her sensational divorce from actor Eddie Cibrian. Hilarious, surprising, vulnerable, and outspoken, Glanville’s unexpected take on dating after heartbreak - and life in general - is as unique as she is. Just like Brandi herself, Drinking and Dating is sexy, funny, and eyebrow-raising.

I usually enjoy the authors outspoken daring attitude but this book was not fun and although I can relate to being betrayed she needs to not include the country singer in her books so much. No need to give these people validation. It almost seemed like a grown person trying to hard to be "cool" and how she slept with half of LA. Didn't enjoy it.
Less "hashtag" moments.
I am a Brandi fan, but listening to this book was like nails on a chalkboard. I give her props for narrating it herself but could possibly have stomached it a little longer if someone else had done it for her. She has a "lithp" that gets a pretty irratating, but moreso are her frequent odddly timed pauses. The non stop hashtags were the icing on the cake. I can't even stand them on-line, let alone hearing them be read by Brandi.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the actual storyline, afterall, this is someone famous simply for being on a reality tv show, however, I thought she'd be more... "real". She is supposed to be known for her "take me as I am" attitude but in myopinion she just came accross conceited, materialistic and incredible arrogant. I am officially on team Leanne from here on out.
NEVER in a million years. I may not even be able to watch RHOBH anymore.
All of them. I hope no one is actually reading this book thinking they will take anything other than low self esteem away from it. And maybe how to play games with men.
If you really want to read this book, I suggest doing just that... read it. Because listening was completely maddening. I bought this thinking it would be a good distraction during my commute to work on a train. Wrong. All it did was make me want to pull my hair out. I finally gave up after making it about half way through.
Brandi- Love you girl, but narrating is not your cup of tea.
Less hashtags and not so many f words
By this author.
She is a terrible writer. The reason this book is on the New York list is because she is a housewife.
No I wish I had never listen to it.
It is to bad that good writers can not get published yet some like Brandia can. The book is garbage.
I used to think perfection was something hard to attain. But we have proven, in our own San Fernando Valley that we know how to live a perfectly idiotic, perfectly empty life – and then we know how to brag about it. As this book proves.
America became a child-centered society – where the children were the center of the family – and assumed the rest of the world (including their parents) existed only to please them.
I watched this in amazement – and could have sworn I heard the parents telling their children “Do not be anything!” Whether they said this or not – this is what their children became – nothing. To the complete satisfaction of their parents.
avoiding road rage one book at a time...
Oh, Brandi… you are a colossal juxtaposition; a stunning, statuesque beauty, with a truck-driver’s etiquette, hauling around a TON of emotional baggage. I guess that is what I find so endearing about her?
No one can criticize this woman for her candor, as she lays it all on the ground. You never have to guess what is going on in her mind, because she spills willingly and freely. I do feel a bit sad that struggles so completely to find meaningful relationships, but she is her own worst enemy in this department. She offers some reasonably good advice about relationships, which she readily admits she doesn’t follow. However, some of her advice is a bit treacherous toward the opposite sex. If there is one thing I know, being a game-playing, manipulator will never net you the man of your dreams. I think she has come a long way since her very public divorce, but she still needs to invest heavily in therapy. But realistically, most of us should.
After reading my own review, it doesn’t come across as a resounding positive… so let me clarify that I did enjoy this book a lot more than I anticipated. My only criticisms are her narration was a bit arhythmic and her hash-tag references are tedious and threaded into EVERY story, begging the question: did she get some bucks from Twitter?
I was very pleasantly surprised. I expected vulgarity but this was very entertaining and not over the top. AUDIBLE, have her record her first book PLEASE!! It was a New York Times best-seller, apparently.
single woman's must!
I could tell she was holding back tears even just bringing up her dog Chica... Its that moment when you hear this broken little girl who feels like she just lost the last straw holding it all together.
Her and that damn orchid, driving to that mans house.. I was terrified and excited for her.
She pointed out EVERY type of man women date. She also like many women (including me) let everyone know the hurt the sadness the anger in her personal life, WASN'T anyone elses fault, you have to stop blaming other people and get out of the misery and move the fuck on!!
I think shes bright and funny and sad all at the same time. You feel her pain sometimes, and you laugh with her sometimes.... its a REALLY great story of someones imperfectly perfect life. Im positive she's changed my life and changed the way I feel and think about dating. I hate dating. Its uncomfortable and useless. She will tell you if you play your cards right you are in control and then there is nothing to worry about. Right?? #LOVEDIT
At the top, she has a great story to tell, is super funny, and has a lovely voice and acting ability to go along with it.
Brandi is so honest, doesn't hold back and is open. She is the reason why reality TV is so addicting. She is not PHONY.
I read Drinking and Tweeting, but didn't listen. I loved this book even more the last, and hope there will be others to come.
Yes, and I did
More from this author please.
I haven't read the first but the second was fantastic. I'm disappointed there's no audible version of the Drinking and Tweeting. The delivery here was a huge part of why I enjoyed the book.
