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.

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.

You can never have too much TMI

I was pleasantly surprised by the growth that Perez has gone through. He has definitely changed. I’ve noticed that since he became a father. A lot of celebs give him shit but truth be told he has given them years of free publicity. I felt the sadness he expressed over the end of his friendship with Gaga. Sorry for that Perez. 10/10 recommend.

why can you only give 1 star? I'd give 4

I'm not sure why you can only give one star. I've been a huge fan of Perez ever since he started his blog. We are around the same age and I can relate to his story about growing out in the late eighties early nineties. It was really nice to learn more about the man behind the drama. I am amazed by his work ethic and he truly is a self made man. I love Perez And I appreciate how he interacts with his fans men will always give a like or respond to comments.

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.

Amazing Bio

Perez, I know you were once known as Hollywood’s mean girl. It takes a lot to admit that. You have so many great qualities that someday your children will get to look back on! You have apologized, and forgiving yourself is half the battle! You are loved! ~Samantha B

Heartwarming, honest and eye-opening

I loved this book!! Perez Hilton is brutally honest, vulnerable, entertaining and engaging. He lets us in and walks us through the behind the scenes of his life in entertainment and his family. I laughed, gasped and cried throughout the story. This is a fast read/audible that you won't regret.

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.
