I received an e-copy of this book in order to review it but all opinions are still my own. This post also contains affiliate links, find out what that means here.
It’s time for another book review and this time the book is Reality Rehab by Lisa Mary London. When I read the blurb for this book I wanted to read it right away. Here is the blurb:
Faded TV star Gloria Grayson has hit rock bottom. Sacked from her starring role in a top soap, divorced from hell-raising actor ‘Mad’ Tommy Mack, and obese from binge eating, her days as Britain’s sexiest blonde are well and truly over.
Gloria has gained 70 lbs when a paparazzi snaps unflattering photos, and a cruel tabloid article relaunches her career. Instantly, she and her fat, feisty dog Baby-Girl are booked for TV’s Reality Rehab. Gloria is locked up with an American psychotherapist, a rabble of D-list celebrities and umpteen cameras, then put on a starvation diet. But worse is to come, with the shock arrival of her alcoholic ex-husband.
Tears and tantrums ensue, as the divorced couple’s joint therapy sessions take over the show and ratings soar. The other celebrities are infuriated to be sidelined and Reality Rehab fast becomes The Tommy and Glo Show. But Gloria and Tommy are hiding explosive secrets from each other and 10 million viewers – Reality is stranger than fiction!
It sounded like such a fun read and I was right! The main character, Gloria, is an instantly likeable character despite the fact that she believes herself to be more famous than she really is! In the past she has been a big name in the celebrity world but things have gone a little sour and she has gained a bit of weight. An unflattering photo in the papers results in her taking part in a reality television series, Reality Rehab.
Once Gloria enters the Reality Rehab house and is reunited with her alcoholic ex-husband you know straight away where the story is going. It’s a classic rom-com story line but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. I laughed out loud all the way through this book!
Sometimes you just need a funny book to sit back and escape reality with (you see what I did there?!) and this is perfect for that. You need to take it on your holls to read by the pool!
