Love Real Housewives? Then you'll love these books

The Housewives move off screen and into print

We know it's most women’s guilty pleasure to indulge in an episode or two of Bravo’s Real Housewives reality TV series from time to time. Instead of trying to calm your Housewife cravings, try feeding the infatuation... and read their books! It's OK. Embrace your inner diva.

Life is Not a Reality Show

The Housewives move off screen and into print

Reality shows run in the family for Beverly Hills cast member Kyle Richards. Sister Kim is a fellow Housewife and Richard's sister, Kathy, also had her own show — all of which are overshadowed by her niece, Paris Hilton, who has starred on numerous unscripted shows. It's not much of a surprise that Richards has written about her off-camera life as a mother of four. She dishes real talk about bringing glamour to mundane daily life.

Frankel is writing her next book about striking a balance between savvy business-woman and being a mom — all while going through a public divorce from ex Jason Hoppy.
