Publisher Description

TheDirty.com, a heavily trafficked online gossip sheet, was created by an entrepreneur by the name of Nik Richie--whose Iranian parents named him Hooman Karamian.

Richie's appearances on programs like Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper 360, Nancy Grace, and 20/20 suddenly provided him with notoriety as the Internet's bad boy, whose site is employed by angry ex-mates (of both sexes) to post sordid and vengeful revelations online.

TheDirty.com also presents opinionated comments from Nik himself about the shape of women's bodies, as well as a language particular to his site. "Porta-Potties" describes women who prostitute themselves to perverse Saudi royalty. "The Greg" refers to his or anyone else's penis, and "Scooby" refers to his sidekick friend.

Sex, Lies and The Dirty is Nik's confession of the backstage realities of his website, and his sordid lifestyle prior to hooking up with his lovely wife Shayne.

Nik Richie is the host of a weekly web-radio show that commands a million listeners each week. And along with his wife Shayne, he will star in the upcoming VH1 reality series, Couples Therapy. The controversy has just begun.

Good read

Brings light to thedirty. Nik isn't as bad as he seems. Talks about how the website started. His true personality comes out in the book.

Nik is ashamed of his color and heritage. He’s a mysoginist. The dude is extremely insecure and it shows. He should be ashamed for his daughters sake that this garbage is his chosen legacy for her.

What a disappointment. But what does one expect from a man who writes an open letter to his dead child and gives it to TMZ the same day of the tragedy? Attention seeking loser who'll spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulder. Have fun supporting the Lamas circus, Nik. Your brother in law needs another 8 Ball.
