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)

Inspirational and Motivational

I feel rejuvenated Now! Bev's transparency, honestly along with her advice, tips and "Jewels " that she dropped throughout the book has inspired me. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world!

Entertaining, Inspiring, and one helluva read!

I enjoyed this book! Knowing Bevy for many years, starting from Twitter as she would entertain me in college while I couldn’t watch The View, to meeting her at the NABJ conference in San Diego in 2010. I like to say that her and Lisa Bonner are the reason I moved to New York from Texas two weeks post graduation with an unpaid internship. Bevy told me it may not be easy, but it will be worth it. It all makes sense now, because she was experiencing changes during that time and totally understood that it would get greater later! I’ve purchased this for 4 friends as it is the perfect read, especially during a pandemic when you want to hear stories from a mutha, auntie and bestie!
