    Enjoyable Hollywood Insider

    This was a quick read and very enjoyable. The only thing that became tedious was the frequent use of words in italics. Otherwise, the writing was slick and descriptive. The reader is fully invited to feel the pain, power and frustration that is experienced by the characters.

    Amazing Book!

    I really don't read much, unless you count Elle cover to cover, but I searched for something interesting, and found this. I'm a fashion design student, so this was a perfect match. And an added bonus was that I discovered 'Celebutantes' during Oscar week, which is when the story takes place. If you love Los Angeles and all the superficial madness that surrounds it, then you will LOVE this book!!

    GLITZ, GLAMOUR, AND ALL THAT MEANS

    There's very little more fun than hearing a story focusing on the lives of the rich and famous with painterly descriptions of people most of us will never party with and places we'll never visit. Take large portions of glitz and glamour, toss them with the Hollywood scene and you have the highly entertaining Celebutantes given a sprightly, can't-stop-listening-to reading by actress Gigi Bermingham. Lola Santisi is a gal who should have it all. She's on the A-list in Hollywood, daughter of an Oscar winning director (who desperately wants a second golden statue) and a mom who is one of the ladies who lunch (only at the best places, of course.) Lola's 26, gorgeous, and an alcoholic. She hasn't quite found her place in the world (although much of the universe has been given to her on a silver platter). Nonetheless, she's now engaged in trying to convince stars to wear her designer's gowns to the all-important, deal making, career breaking Oscars. That's a tough battle and when engaged in heavy combat one needs to have pals by your side. For support Lola has press agent Kate Woods who wants to charge up the ladder of success and Cricket Curtis, an actress who has to her credit the role of a coma victim on a television hospital drama. Not to worry about never receiving an invite to Barry Diller's and Diane von Furstenberg's fabulous picnic, the Gagosian dinner at Mr. Chow or the ultimate - the Vanity Fair Oscar party. The authors of this comedic take on cinema citizens and their chicanery will take you to those spots and more. Plus, you don't even have to worry about what you're going to wear. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke

    I got this on audiobook and have listened to it several times since I purchased it. It's one of my favorites to listen to on my long car rides home. I haven't read the normal book edition, but Gigi whomever reads the audiobook is brilliant and she keeps me hooked.
