Publisher's summary

TMI is the story of how Mario Lavandeira became Perez Hilton, a celebrity blogger with millions of readers around the globe who was sometimes called the Most Hated Man in Hollywood. Growing up in Miami’s Little Havana in the 1980s, Perez was bullied at school because of his weight and his sexual orientation, so he devoted all his free time to eating and watching TV in his bedroom. A scholarship to NYU was a lifesaver, as Perez felt at home in New York. But his finances took a battering, and he moved on to LA. After being fired from three different jobs within the space of 10 months, Perez suddenly hit it big in 2005 with his gossip blog. With Perez’s help, many promising young artists reached the masses - Katy Perry, Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Lady Gaga, to name just a few. Perez soon became a Hollywood insider, but during his dramatic fallout with Lady Gaga, he realized he had been used. Perez’s blog became increasingly mean - “It went from bitchy to nasty”, he recalls. 

But a turning point came when Perez uploaded a video for the It Gets Better campaign and was surprised by the backlash it received. People called him a bully and a hypocrite because he previously outed gay celebrities on his blog. Perez was forced to reevaluate not only his alter ego, but also himself as a person. Following the birth of his son, he was also faced with a number of new opportunities for growth and personal reflection. TMI reveals the man behind the blog in a new, revealing, and still-juicy memoir.

Put some clothes on for your cover.

I get that the TMI title flows into a concept of some type of revealing cover, but it’s hard to look at.
I actually looked into a setting where I could remove it from displaying.
It’s not because of his attractiveness level, he is a decent looking person, but do you have to select a cover that no one would even want to see a male model dressed as.
He’s so determined to have more money/success, here was your blown opportunity to control your image with positivity.
But choose something that is such a turnoff!? You should’ve realized people have to look at this every time they pause or play..
Choose better next time. it could have been artistic, fun, and flattering! Good luck buddy!

Even for free, it wasn’t worth my time

There is nothing extraordinarily compelling about Mario’s life story. From humble beginnings to rubbing elbows with the rich and famous, yadda, yadda, yadda... He still sounds like an adolescent in both his delivery and his insights, and the remorse he expresses for his former bullying ways does not come across as sincere.

He does deserve credit for relentless hustling and high work ethic that led to his success, but at the end of the day, I don’t buy what he sells, so I’m glad I didn’t pay money for this listen.

meh

For someone who claims he's learned his lesson about mistreating celebrities, it's sad to hear him still using those names to remain relevant in a decade where no one knows who he is but bored housewives with nothing better to do than obsess with other people's lives and momentarily forget how crummy theirs is.

Don’t waste your time

I have read/listened to a lot of biographies and memoirs. This book takes the cake as being the dumbest. It’s Perez Hilton. I should have gone into this with zero expectations. He has done nothing interesting, philanthropic, or even infamous.

Great Read!

I’ve followed him since he began in early 2000s. It was fascinating to actually hear the background of all the gossips I read about back then. It was also great to learn the trajectory of Perez’s life and see how he’s grown to be a better person.

Love this man, this is so hilariously uncomfortably honest

As a product of the generation who invented social media I absolutely love how well this book is put together!
Hilarious stories, clips of the gossip I know you are looking for-you will not be disappointed!!
Back in the day we could live life and no one would see the pictures or hear the rumors because no one was posting to social media in real time!
I started high school a week before 9-11 occurred; & the thought my entire extended family was there but there was no way for me to contact them back then BUT today a cousin of mine will answer to FaceTime while in the shower in New York City!!
I followed Brittany from day one so Perez Hilton became a known personality years later, who is a trailblazer for the LGBTQ community in my opinion!!
As I graduated high school in 2005 I was lucky my small town, San Antonio, Tx was just beginning to learn how to use MySpace! I slid into adulthood with the biggest sigh of relief that my child will never know how big of an idiot I was until I decide to share it with her!! I’m glad in this huge racist, land of suppression people like Perez Hilton have the courage to be THEMSELVES! You will laugh, maybe cry, but laugh until you’re peeing your pants with his detailed accounts of events that you’ve always wanted to know why he did what he did!!!
I hope he never apologizes and stays true to himself because as Americans you should know we prefer the gossiping chisme over living in reality to help us cope with the shit storm we let happen!
Thank you for writing this Perez!!!

VAPID!!

This book is sooo shallow! The author, bless his heart, is a terrible narrator and I had a really tough time getting into it. Once I did I found many parts of the story annoying. You don’t really get a few for who the person is, rather he is simply recounting events of his life in a way that an outside observer would. I had to force myself to finish the book only to find that it had no redeeming qualities. Don’t waste your time, just google him.

Odd read

Rather boring read and poorly written
Not a well liked man and this book did nothing to change that opinion.
