APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Erika Jayne has been our favorite Real Housewife of Beverly Hills ever since she joined the cast in 2015. But even as longtime fans, we were surprised by what we learned from her tell-all memoir. Speaking with her trademark bluntness, Jayne talks frankly about her abusive childhood and early career struggles. Her tone audibly softens when L.A. lawyer Tom Girardi enters the story—Jayne’s affection for her husband is palpable, especially when she’s reflecting on his encouragement for her reinvention as an electro-pop diva. Fair warning: Not much Housewives tea gets spilled. Hopefully she’s saving those stories for a sequel!
