You know what OK Magazine thought would be a fun idea? Getting someone who has not read a book since middle school and even then only read the Cliff’s Notes to do some book reviews! Well, it kind of make sense when the books are “written” by Bravolebrities who have never read a book either (let alone actually written the ones he is discussing.) So just for shits and giggles, let’s see what Reza has to say about three books he has never read by people who didn’t actually write them.
Reza likes the cover of Phaedra’s book. He loves things that are red and pink because he is gay. (His words not mine.) And he thinks the full page photo of Phaedra on the back is cute and he wants to give her a hug. But when you open the book. Wait? He opens a book? Are we witnessing a first here on OK Magazine Video? Rene says $23 is rather steep for a book. And it is for this book. However, it does make it clear that Reza has never purchased a book in his life.
He flips through to a “random” quote which he reads in his best Phaedra voice, “Everyone knows a southern belle loves her three Ps, pearls, pantyhose and pumps.” Reza points out that it seems odd that a southern belle would love her pantyhose since it is hot as balls in the south. Which is true. Nothing made us happier than the death of panty hose back in …..oh 1989. But apparently, that is the best quote from the book he could find. Reza shows uncharacteristic mercy by giving the book and 8 out of 10.
On to Brandi’s book. Oddly he is reviewing her first book, Drinking and Tweeting. He says of Brandi, “How can you not love this bitch? She used to be married to a celebrity who is now married to a celebrity, and her and the new celebrity get into twitter wars all the time that are very entertaining.” He takes a glance at the cover photos and says, that on the back she is drinking “fat pig juice, AKA wine,” then. based on the pictures, He gives it a 7 out of 10.
On to Caroline Manzo’s book. Reza seems upset at the family rifts in the Manzo clan. He looks inside and admires the pretty pictures. They are in color! He gives Caroline’s book a solid 6 out of 10.
Will any of you admit to reading a housewives book? If so, tell me what you read and if it was worth buying. I didn’t buy any housewife books, but a friend sent me her copy of Drinking and Tweeting. I read it and it was not memorable. Did you ever go to a movie that was highly publicized on TV with lots of trailers that looked like it was going to be good and then you realized all the good parts were in the trailer and there was nothing interesting about the rest of the movie? Yeah, Brandi’s book was like that for me, vaginal rejuvenation, blah, blah, blah, bitch stole my fambly, blah, blah, housewives is fun, the end.
