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.

Famous for being famous

An egomaniac with a swelled head- banished by Howard Stern- Lady Gaga- Ariana Grande and a host of domestic partners- no more needs to be said- it appears that he is devoted to his 3 kids? as well as himself

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.

Definitely TMI but great.

Pre-ordered this way before it came out. Was not disappointed. There was literally one section when I thought “Oh my goodness Perez that’s TMI!” However overall it was just great. Loved it. Good on you, fellow.

Entertaining and easy to listen to

This audiobook has exceeded my expectations! I smashed through it in a day. The narration was great, and very easy to listen to. It felt very personal as if he’s a friend just chatting your ear away. Keeps you paying attention the whole time. There’s no dull chapter. I often catch my self re-listening certain parts because of how hilarious it is, as well as the sad hard hitting behind the scenes celebrity stories, as well as Perez’s childhood.

From childhood memories, to celebrity relationships (lady Gaga, Amanda Bynes). I must say Perez has outdone himself, I hope someone can produce his life into a movie, because from what I’ve listened to it is CRAZY! 💕

There are a few expose’s the most jaw dropping one FOR ME was John Meyer. 🤭

The only critique I have, for the sake of improvement. Midway through I did notice that the quality of narration fluctuating, it sounded like he was obviously reading, rather than the natural conversational way of narration on most part. But that’s just me being too critical.

CANT WAIT FOR ANOTHER ONE!

Light & Fun

If you like listening to light hearted celebrity (Hollywood) biographies, you will like this. It was a little short and it felt lacking in details at some points. You can tell it was written by ghost writers. But overall, it was pleasant and gave some insight into Perez’s past. If you like him now, I think you get more listening to his weekly Podcast.
