The fan favorite alumna of the Bravo hit series Southern Charm offers a witty and candid collection of essays on dating, pregnancy, and parenthood.
Growing up in South Carolina with a family that goes back ten generations, Cameran Eubanks knew from a young age that Southern women are expected to want the white picket fence life. But Cameran has never been your typical Southern belle, and she was always determined to flout expectations.
She set out to paint the town red, enjoy her single life, focus on her successful real estate career, maybe join the cast of a hugely popular reality show…and then she met her future husband, Jason. After falling in love and getting married, Cameran faced the same dilemma so many women encounter: whether or not to have kids. Ultimately, her own journey to motherhood was anything but simple.
Now, she takes you deeper into her life—from her first foray into reality TV on The Real World to dating in her twenties to the honest truth about her pregnancy and motherhood—to get to know the person behind the camera. Known as the voice of reason on Southern Charm, she’ll share the same honest advice she gives to her castmates and guide y’all through dating, pregnancy, and motherhood. Charming, hilarious, and a hell of a lot fun, One Day You’ll Thank Me is for anyone who has ever wondered if they should or can.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
How unprepared was reality-TV star Cameran Eubanks Wimberly for motherhood? When she told her husband, Jason, that she was pregnant, he totally thought she was pranking him. Cam doesn’t gossip here about her reality-TV stints on The Real World and Bravo’s Southern Charm, but her journey to motherhood is just as fascinating. Even though she self-deprecatingly admits she was “ten times cooler and much more fun” before she had a child—and is disarmingly frank about the question of whether she wanted to be a mother at all—these warmhearted and funny essays make it seem like she found her maternal instinct quickly. Even when serious topics like postpartum depression and her reluctant decision to give up breastfeeding enter the chat, Cam keeps things light and positive. Her bubbly narration is just as charming and relatable in your earbuds as she was on TV. One Day You’ll Thank Me is an encouraging and enlightening listen, whether you’re a mom or not.
Refreshing and honest
Cameron shares a different and honest perspective to motherhood. It’s refreshing to hear someone articulate what many of us mamas are feeling behind closed doors. This is a relatable, funny, and fun to listen to. Well done!
90% of this book is just about her being a mom. There a better (truthful) mommy books out there, if that’s what you’re looking for.
