Overview

Everything About Me Is Fake . . . And I'm Perfect by Janice Dickinson

In Everything About Me Is Fake...and I'm Perfect, the hilarious and candid follow–up to the national bestseller No Lifeguard on Duty, Janice Dickinson tackles our society's unattainable standards of beauty and reveals the secrets behind her own lifelong struggle to achieve perfection –– from her bra–stuffing days as a flat–chested teenager through her career as the world's first supermodel to her ultimate comeback as a bestselling author and television star on the top–rated reality television hit America's Next Top Model.

Even as she graced the glossy pages of Vogue and Cosmo, Janice had to struggle to keep up the image of brazen self–confidence and bravado that became her trademark. Behind every smile and pose was a sea of self–doubt and insecurities. Now, after years of experience as a supermodel –– being stitched into clothing, starving herself, and undergoing cosmetic surgery –– Janice debunks the beauty myths and breaks down what's real and what's not. Drawing on her vast knowledge of fashion, beauty care, and fitness, Janice offers no–nonsense advice and tips on how to look and feel your best on your own terms.

you see on the magazine pages starve themselves for weeks on end, smoke up a storm, and scarf down enough diuretics to blast out the Pacific Ocean.

No one tells a story like the world's first supermodel, and Janice's eagerly awaited follow–up is filled with outrageous anecdotes from her personal life, including how she stole Donald Trump's heart after jacking his limo, her steamy date with JFK Jr., and the wonders and pitfalls of going under the knife. In a fabulous fashion that only Janice can deliver, she tells all about her bumpy and unpredictable road to a healthy self–image and pulls back the curtain on the modeling industry, as well as her own life, proving why, as Janice explains: "Everything about me is fake . . . and I'm perfect."

Pleeeez! I don't know how many times she had to remind the reader (and herself) that she was the worlds 'first supermodel'. Come on,...I know of at least five or six more that were/are more popular than she. This whole book was about how sick she is, how wonderful she is, and she makes nasty, tacky remarks about plus size models...like being normal or over weight is a bad thing! I promise you that most of the plus size models, feel better about themselves than this anorexic nut case! No Janice (a.k.a. 'Big Dog')...I am not over weight, and at 119 and 5'4' I am happy with myself...I actually eat food not paper for lunch! I want my money back!!!!

when you buy this book you know what you are getting yourself into. Janice talks about the highs and rock bottom lows in her life and her lows are disgustingly low. and someitmes her highs will make you feel sick. if you are interested in this book then you must know a little bit about janice and about how obnoxious she is well thats what the book is. despite all that she is a very very interesting person adn someone should do a study on her. i liked it but then again i like messed up people

This book made me feel sick and sorry for her. She jumped around like crazy and only talked about how obsessed she is with herself. This book was completely disorganized and I had a hard time understanding what her point for writing it was. She went on and on about eating absolutely nothing like it was a good thing. The way she wrote sounded just like the way she probably speaks. It was a tacky, tasteless, poorly written book with too much filth, and bad name dropping (I don't care that you dated 'Sly' be done with it already!) She should stick to modeling if she still can. Yikes, don't read this, and if you must, do it in Barnes but don't waste your money!!!

Janice has a great sense of comic timing, and her stories ring true even to someone who is not a supermodel. Her chapter giving women advice on men is a classic that every woman should be made to memorize in junior high.

This book was fabulous. Janice bares it all and does so in such a humorous way, that you will be feining to read more. Her stories are ones that we can all relate to and her words of wisdom are priceless.

Yes, she does remind us relentlessly that she was the world's first supermodel, but that's okay. I wasn't expecting Kafka, Tolstoy, Hemingway, you get my drift. The book was funny, tongue in cheek and most of all a great read for any young lady who dreams of becoming a model or fantasizes about it. The modeling world is not a pretty one and she gives it to you straight.

On and on and on she goes with the name dropping and the shoving down our throats of how wonderful she (thinks) she is...personally, i was embarrassed for her, reading this last grasp at fame by someone who (falsely) claims she was the first 'supermodel'...had she never heard of cheryl tiegs, christie brinkley or renee russo???...unless you love this woman as much as she loves bragging about herself, don't waste your time on this one

I read Janice's first book and loved it! It gave such a great look into the world of modeling, good and bad. Her second book does the same and offers up the other side of modeling that some people don't know or don't want to know. I think this is a great book for any woman who feels she can never live up to the 'perfect' image that she is constantly bombarded with on the cover of every magazine. Janice Dickinson ROCKS!!!
