I can't believe I gave this women my money, she's a sad, lonely, depressive person. I was curious with her first book and actually enjoyed it. It was funny and I mainly wanted to know her side of her divorce. Thinks happen in life, get up and move on, she drags people down with her.
I was extremely bored with this book, so I didn't even get through 20,pages.

I used to like Brandy, but she's not someone to look to for advice. I would actually advise to to do the opposite. I wanted a bit more than what I got. I got this for my Kindle because I was curious about this scorned single mom celebrity's crazy life. I think it was 'okay'. I kept skipping through her mediocre rants because it is something I have heard over and over again.

She definitely kept it real! I hope to see a more developed writing perspective with her future endeavors in literature. I think she would make an excellent author for some steamy romance novels. One person found this helpful. I love anything Brandi writes. She has absolutely no filter on her mouth and it's really fun to read about her hilarious adventures and funny situations she gets into.
Looking forward to more books from her. This book is gross. I find her occasionally amusing and her first book was lighthearted and fun.
