Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

From the host of the fabulous and popular show Bevelations on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy channel, Bevy Smith’s irreverent and inspiring memoir about learning to live a big, authentic, and unapologetic life - and how you can, too.

Bevy Smith was living what seemed like a glamorous dream as a fashion advertising executive, blazing a lucrative career for herself in the whitewashed magazine world. She jetsetted to Europe for fashion shows, dined and danced at every hot spot, and enjoyed a mighty roster of lovers.

So it came as quite a shock to Bevy when one day, after arriving at her luxury hotel in Milan, she collapsed on the Frette bedsheets and sobbed. Years of rolling with the in-crowd had taken its toll. Her satisfaction with work and life had hit rock bottom. But Bevy could not be defeated, and within minutes (okay, days) she grabbed a notepad and started realizing a truer path - one built on self-reflection and, ultimately, clarity. She figured out how to redirect her life toward meaningful creativity and freedom.

In her signature lively and infectious voice (there’s no one like Bevy!), Bevelations candidly shares how she reclaimed her life’s course and shows how we too can manifest our most bodacious dreams. From repossessing her bold childhood nature to becoming her own brand to envisioning her life’s next great destination (which will feature natural hair, important charitable giving, and a midcentury house overlooking the Pacific Ocean), Bevy invites listeners along on the route of her personal transformation to reveal how each of us can live our best lives with honesty, joy, and, when we’re in the mood, a killer pair of shoes.  

A Macmillan Audio production from Andy Cohen Books 

"Bevy knows what's what, and she is the kind of woman you want in your corner. If you don't believe me...buy the book." (Whoopi Goldberg)

"Funny, wise, well-experienced, empathetic, colorful - Bevy brings the spirit of humanity wherever she goes." (Pharrell Williams)

Mutha Is Inspiring!

Bevy - I’m almost 37 and felt shame for not fully living my dreams yet. I even feared how I’d be viewed for chasing my dreams at such a “big age.” Not anymore. Now I really “believe that anything is possible.” Thank you for sharing. My “Little Brown Bevy,” “Little Creative Sensitive Brown Matthew,” will finally get to come out of hiding.

God Bless You.

It gets greater now! Must listen!!

A must listen! Bevy share her life with us and you feel like you are listening to your best friend. It’s like that phone call to a close friend you haven’t spoken to in a long time but as soon as you start talking all of your emotions are there. You laugh and you cry, you think back to your childhood and you giggle at some of her stories remembering your entanglements. Most of all it stirs up hope. Hope that it does get greater later and it inspires you to look into yourself and find your own“ lil’brown Bevy” and dare to dream! Bevy this definitely deserves a Grammy nomination!

Blueprint to Changing Your Life, With a Bunch of Fabulousness

Bevy, Bevy, Bevy!

What can I say! I’m so proud of YOU and the life you’ve lived and the new one you’ve created! Your evolution is beyond inspiring, and I hold the rare privilege of being a Dinner With Bevy: Life with Vision Alum, from your LA event, and just as you inspired me then, you did the same all over again! Funny how that works!

This book is so authentically YOU! Excellent how you showed readers through your journey, that it does get greater later! I can’t wait for the rest of your story to unfold!

Thanks for showing us the way!

A Manual For A Fabulous Life!

From start to finish this book has taught me so much about not giving up on my dreams and what I want for my life. I recommend this book to anyone who still has it in them to fight for the life they want.

Bevy came through HEAVY on the realness!

I purchased Bevelations audiobook and I want to say I didn’t realize I had so much in common with her. (Black, Curvy, New Yorkers, and unapologetically HER ).Your book is awesome and truly inspirational. Thank you for being you. Black girls like me appreciate you

Bevy Speaking on Bevy

Love that she is narrating her own story. Excellent perspective on a black woman in pop culture.

Bevelations confirmed Bevy and I are Besties!

I've started following @bevysmith after seeing and reading about Dinner with Bevy! #Bevelations made me love and connect with her even more. I chose the audio after seeing she was the narrator. It felt like I was catching up with a friend!

She poured her heart into this book and I thank her. She's willing to share that everything that glitters isn't gold! Smitty is smiling down you! Fnding out both of our Mother's name is Geraldine was icing on the cake! Can't wait for the next book!😘
