Two Hollywood bombshells share the brutally honest truth—and laugh-out-loud moments—about dating in the modern world.
Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff believed her then-boyfriend when he said that the bag of condoms she found in his suitcase belonged to a buddy of his—that he was “holding them for him.” He wasn’t. In We’re Just Not Into You, Karina and her best friend and manager, Lindsay Rielly, dish about their dating escapades with A-listers and average Joes, the craziest pickup lines they’ve ever heard, and the unbelievable moves guys have tried to land them both. Along with quips and stories from other girlfriends, these two women humorously illustrate for the rest of us that sometimes all we can do is laugh at the mishaps and adventures we experience on our quest for Mr. Right. Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff shouldn’t have a difficult time finding Mr. Right. She’s a traffic-stopping, gorgeous international celebrity who bumps elbows with Hollywood A-listers, business and media moguls, professional athletes, and even sometimes your average cute boy next door. She and her striking (and similar-looking) manager and bestie, Lindsay Rielly, both enjoy vibrant and enviable careers. The two travel often and attend fabulous parties, encountering some amazing people along the way. Still, neither of them has made it down the aisle, despite their unwavering optimism, unrelenting effort, and wacky sense of humor. After years of scratching their heads wondering what they were doing wrong, they had an epiphany. Hundreds of dates and several unfinished engagements later, the pair finally realized: It’s not us. It’s them (at least some of the time!). If these two can’t laugh at life as single women, who can? In this amusing, empowering, light-hearted book, the BFFs chronicle some of the zaniest dates they’ve been on—the ones single women everywhere can relate to. Case in point: Karina dated a guy who forgot his wallet three nights in a row! Who hasn’t dated The Clinger-On, The Tight Wad, The Jealous Tyrant, The Cheater, and The Wanna-Be-Straight Guy, right? These women certainly have. Now, along with quips and comments from other celebs and other girlfriends, Karina and Lindsay’s most outlandish stories, favorite pickup lines, and craziest dating moments (and some endearing ones too) are chronicled in the pages of We’re Just Not That Into You. And for the guys out there: Karina and Lindsay have put your perspective in these pages too, so lessons abound. No matter who you are or where you live, the hilarious tales in We’re Just Not Into You will definitely make you feel better about your dating life. It’s a must-read not only for anyone who has laughed so hard at a date-gone-wrong that she’s actually cried but also for anyone who wants confirmation that the most ridiculous dating mishaps happen to famous people too, not just mere mortals.
