Publisher's Summary

When her husband Kenny dumps her (by cell phone) mere months before their 10-year wedding anniversary, Gracie Pollock finds herself reeling. Though her role as the wife of a semifamous Hollywood studio executive often left her cold, Gracie had grown accustomed to the unique privileges extended to Tinseltown's power elite: reservations at Spago on a Friday night; beauty treatments by dermatologists, manicurists, and colorists to the stars; line-jumping at Disneyland with her daughter and Ugg-wearing celebrity offspring. And despite consenting to naming their daughter Jaden in an attempt to lure Will Smith into one of Kenny's productions, Gracie believed she and Kenny were different from other Hollywood couples. She never thought she'd be a starter wife. But now that her marriage is over, she's a social pariah, and it's only through a faux pas by her world-class florist that she learns her husband has upgraded: Kenny is dating a pop tartlet.With images of the 'tween queen everywhere she turns, Gracie seeks refuge at her best friend's Malibu mansion for some much-needed divorce therapy. Soon she's associating with all the wrong people, including a mysterious hunk who saves her from drowning, the security guard at her gated community, and - God forbid - Kenny's boss, one of Hollywood's better-known Lotharios.With her signature wit, sassy style, and cameos of the rich and famous - and wannabe rich and famous - Gigi Grazer tackles the most delicious and dastardly details of a divorce and recovery, Hollywood style.

I first saw the mini series and decided I had to read the book. I bought a copy but never had the time to sit down and read. figured the audio version was my best bet to read the book. I loved it! the story like was great the performance was just as good. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good read with a few laughs from time to time.
