Not All Diamonds and Rose

 This book by Dave Quinn is a biography of sorts of the different Real Housewives franchises.   Not all Diamond and Rose begins with the start of the franchise and the creation of the Orange Country edition.  This book is an enjoyable book doing memory lane for fans of the shows.  It does relive many of the premier moments with thoughts and opinions from Housewives and producers.   There isn't a whole lot of juicy behind the scenes info and I am sure the stories and info have been scrubbed to meet with Bravo and Andy Cohen's approval.  All it all it was a fun read but don't expect to get a whole lot of new information.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

fun read for franchise fans

While I enjoyed reading the stories and remembering scenes I couldn’t help but feel like this was more timeline rehash rather than revealing anything new per se. Felt like it had been whitewashed to make acceptable to bravo
