I discovered Loni Love on Chelsea Lately. I loved how she doesn’t put up with any of Chelsea’s shit and her stories always make me laugh. She seems like a hot mess, and yet she totally has it together. She always comes across as super confident and you can tell that she has too many important things to do than deal with stupid people. She’s the friend you’d go to when you want to know the truth, not get complimented.
Apparently women approach her all the time like they are BFFs. There’s something about her that makes people think they know each other. After standup shows, they wait for her in the bathroom or hang out at the meet and greet and then ask really personal questions. Lots of TMI. But they know Love isn’t going to bullshit them, so if they spill the details, she’s going to speak the truth.
When you have this much power, you write a book.
I for real lol’d several times when reading this. She covers all aspects of dating and love. First dates to throwing a man out of your house. Recovering from dating disasters to dealing with his baby momma. Figuring out how to handle an unexpected hook up to dealing with your man’s stupid friends. It’s all in here. The best part is that there are seriously out there questions, like can I sleep with my mom’s ex-husband (No. Unless you trade her one of your exes.) and then there are things just about all women deal with like what to do when you don’t think you want to get married. Or do want to get married.
The absolutely best part of this book is that Love has a story for everything. Either she’s dealt with it herself or has a friend or family member who has been through it. She details her own disasters and lays everything on the table. You really do feel like you’re BFFs. This book feels like you’re hanging out with a hysterical and honest friend. Yeah, she’s going to tell you to stop fucking around, but she’s going to help you get drunk while you discuss it. Also, there will probably be pancakes.
If you’re looking for a quick and fun read, grab this book. If you’re a fan of Loni Love and haven’t read this yet, you will not be disappointed. Although she had help writing it, it is 100% her voice. I didn’t need the audio version to feel like she was reading it to me.
I couldn’t be happier with this being the last book I read in 2013!
