Ok, it’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of existence stars – and new ones popping adult any second – and any one with something to sell, we here during Reality Tea motionless to exam out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes improved with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we suspicion we’d try something fun and examination some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewed Teresa Giudice‘s third cookbook, Fabulicious: Fast Fit and her Fabellini Cocktail. While a recipes and igredences in a cookbook were flattering good, a cocktail had me reminiscing about college memories slurping adult a Boone’s Farm in a frat house. we was a grand girl, alright.
This month we’re honoring a OG of a Housewives franchises, Vicki Gunvalson and holding a look-see by her self-help/memoir More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! Yep, that’s a pretension in a entirety. The Real Housewives of Orange County star wants we to know that we too can be an word megastar (and accommodate a leader like Brooks Ayers during conventions! Enticing, no?) if customarily we learn from her experiences.
I was anticipating for some torpedo reversion photos of Vicki and co. in a good aged days, yet yeah there were none. We also reviewed a offerings of Wines By Wives. Now there’s zero we adore some-more than a bottle of red, yet a discourse sans childhood photos? Not so much!

Oh Vicki G, while your ambience in both group and conform leave many to be desired, we can get down with we on your drink selections. We drank “with” Vicki this month as Wines By Wives evokes us to do and sampled a flavors of Gabriella Wine’s Merlot and Pinot Grigio.
I privately consider this bar is a unequivocally lovable idea. Each month we get dual wines privately comparison by possibly Vicki or her partner in business, yet no longer her essence sister, Tamra Barney. And a income goes to charity! A gift that is not Brooks, we mean.
Two this month – I’m a propitious girl! we enjoyed both while examination a antics of a ladies correct on RHOC. Oh, did we contend proper? we meant loony. Anyway, behind to a wines! I’m not a drink posh – or connoisseur – by any means, yet we consider we acquire credit for perfect adore of a acerbic and fermented grape.
I suspicion a Merlot was improved than a Pinot. The Merlot was full, fruity, and had a good plain flavor. It was unequivocally well-spoken and went good with a buttery popcorn we devoured alongside it. It smelled good and fruity and gets a bullion star from me.
The Pinot was unequivocally dry and crispy as Pinot is cannot to do. It had some unequivocally apparent fruit overtones, yet was a small too acidic for my taste. One thing we favourite is that we could unequivocally detect a spirit of pink in a flavoring, yet it wasn’t totally obvious. It was a nice, ethereal wine, nonetheless it had a bit of an fragrance on opening a bottle. Joe Giudice tells us that’s normal though.
RATING: Shockingly and agreeably startling untrashy. we would not be broke to share with friends and it didn’t make me wisecrack from sugarine overload. For some reason we was awaiting one step above Franzia boxed rose and was agreeably gay to find that was not a case. Also, a bar is a fun suspicion and a prices are flattering fair.
Oh, Vicki G, we only adore to ratify and hear yourself talk, don’t you? Well, Vicki’s book is both a discourse and a bit of an recommendation tome. The recommendation is from her possess personal practice and we was unequivocally vehement for that center territory that has all a fun photos of people via their lives that customarily comes in books like this. There were none! Sads. No Vicki with 80′s hair and a prego bump.
Anyway, while we favourite removing Vicki‘s viewpoint on things, a “advice” was mostly things we already know. Save your money, deposit smart, devise for retirement, dress for success (is it unequivocally satisfactory for her to be advising on this count?), don’t finish adult donkey over teacups after we exhaust all your income on your boyfriend’s child support so removal your assets account. Oh, we combined that final part, yet when she does her new revisions we design it to be included.
This book featured several categories about a form of qualities Vicki possesses that led to her success. For instance Drive and Purpose and Direction. It also explained how Vicki jumped forward of a container to soar to good successes as a executress of Coto Insurance (For all your word needs). we was some-more meddlesome in her attribute with Donn Gunvalson.
Vicki dedicates a territory to a uncover and how modifying plays a large purpose in what viewers perceive. And how Vicki got expel on a uncover – it turns out her son Michael wrote a casting director. LOL Damn you, Mike!
RATING: Overall, this was a bit peremptory and we was anticipating for some-more of a discourse and not a general Suze Orman book about how Vicki is a many successful lady in insurance. And here’s a thing, Vicki is a large success and she did it all on her possess yet it was too recommendation (“purpose”) driven and not adequate about personal recollections. Vicki had a co-writer and a essay peculiarity wasn’t bad, it sounded like Vicki articulate that is both a and and a minus.
If you’re a Vicki fan you’d substantially suffer this, if not – pass.
Next Month’s Challenge: Next month we plea you, dear readers, to examination a comparison Booze N’ Book. For August, we will be featuring NeNe Leakes‘ book Never Make a Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned a Hard Way. I know y’all have copiousness to contend about Ms Leakes!
We will also be sampling a Moscato selections of Cynthia Bailey and Kim Zolciak for a Real Housewives of Atlanta ‘Moscato-off’! These ladies contest even in a off-season. NeNe supposedly has a moscato, yet it’s nowhere to be found. If you’ve attempted any of these ladies’ wines, greatfully let us know!
