Bravo Addict? Reads from Your Favorite Bravo-lebrities!

by  | January 22

There’s something about the fantasy world in which much of Bravo’s programming takes place that causes an average person to become obsessed with the lives of the rich and famous. And not just obsessed: invested! We tune in every week to find out who Nene is fighting with, whether or not DJ James Kennedy has finally gotten it together, or if Bethenny will ever rekindle her friendship with Jill. If those names and situations are familiar to you, then you’ve come to the right place.

I remember a time when I would say Bravo TV is my “guilty pleasure,” but I no longer feel even an ounce of guilt for tuning into these shenanigans week after week. I talk about these people as if they were my friends, because that’s what Bravo wants us to do. They let us into the lives of their stars in hopes that we will find some kind of connection with them that keeps us coming back. What better way to further that connection with the top stars than by their venturing into the world of book publishing?! Check out these titles by Bravo-lebrities you may not have known were also authors.

Pretty Mess

Pretty Mess

by Erika Jayne

Erika’s memoir was featured prominently during a season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Viewers were treated to an inside look at what it was like for Erika to dig deep into her past and experience those emotions all over again. In Pretty Mess, Erika spills on every aspect of her life: from her rise to fame as a daring and fiery pop/dance performer and singer; to her decision to accept a role on reality television; to the ups and downs of family life (including her marriage to famed lawyer Tom Girardi, thirty-three years her senior).

Next Level Basic

Next Level Basic

by Stassi Schroeder

One name: Stassi. Our girl has gone from an admitted hot mess to a woman who owns her sh*t and all that comes with it. Through it all, she has embraced her status as a Basic Bitch. There’s nothing more boring than people who take themselves too seriously or think that you have to be pretentious to be cool. Stassi champions the things that many of us are afraid to love publicly for fear of being labeled basic: lattes, pugs, bubbly cocktails, millennial pink, #OOTD (outfit of the day, obvs), astrology, hot dogs, the perfect pair of Louboutins, romantic comedies...the list goes on and on.

From her very public breakups to the most intimate details of her plastic surgery, Stassi shares her personal experiences with her trademark honesty—all with the hope that you can learn something from them.

Running Against the Tide

Running Against the Tide

by Captain Lee

Captain Lee is the glue that keeps Below Deck together. Every week he deals with crew fights and drama with a level of patience I’ve never seen. Captain Lee’s story offers a glimpse behind the scenes at the luxury yachting industry—and at one of Bravo’s biggest franchises. From having to reclaim his drunk captain's lost papers in the Dominican Republic to unwittingly crewing a drug boat out of Turks and Caicos to navigating the outrageous demands of the super-rich in New York City, Captain Lee proves time and time again why he’s a fan favorite. He’s occasionally profane, often surprising, but never dull, and for the first time, he’s here to tell all.

Turning the Tables

Turning the Tables

by Teresa Giudice

It was the table flip heard ’round the world. Back in the early days of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice let her anger get the best of her. But since then, she’s turned those tables and stands strong in both of these books.

In Turning the Tables, Teresa’s first tell-all memoir, she details what it was like to grow up as a Gorga, marry into the Giudice family, star on reality television, and ultimately end up in prison.
