My Review:A hilarious new novel full of Hollywood glitz, glamour, and scandal.
When he changes the locks, she changes the rules.
Agnes Murphy Nash is the perfect Hollywood wife – she has the right friends, the right clothes, and even a side career of her own as a writer. Her husband Trevor is a bigshot producer, and from the outside it looks like they’re living a picture-perfect celebrity life, complete with tennis tournaments and lavish parties.
But the job description of a Hollywood wife doesn’t cover divorce, which is the way Agnes’ life is headed after she comes home one day to find her credit cards cancelled and the security passwords to get into her enormous LA home changed. Oh, and there’s a guy there whose job it is to tase her if she tries to enter…which she does. Needless to say, Agnes’ husband is dead set on making sure she loses big time, but Agnes isn’t the type to just lie down and take it. In a world of fremenies and hot nannies, personal psychics and “skinny” jello shots, Agnes may be losing her husband, but could that mean getting her own life back?
Been There, Married That is a drop-dead hilarious battle of wills that will make you laugh out loud, cringe, and keep turning the pages to see what crazy disaster will happen to Agnes next…and how she’ll rise from the ashes.
I've read all of Gigi's previous books and it has been awhile since she released one so I was super excited to read this one. I must confess that the allure is . . . gone. I was a bit bored reading this and it felt more cringe-worthy than anything? I'm not sure if I've changed or if this book just wasn't as good as previous books. This book will kind of make you hate Hollywood, marriage and Los Angeles ... but maybe that's the point.
I'd boiled water for tea because tea made me feel calm and righteous. Wine required less work but also made me feel sad. And didn't Beyonce sip her tea, if I'm understanding her husband's lyrics? Anyway, chamomile with manuka honey, if you're wondering. Meanwhile, I wondered if I would be able to afford manuka honey after the divorce.
