About this deal

Dave Quinn's Not All Diamonds and Rosé is the definitive oral history of the hit television franchise, from its unlikely start in the gated communities of Orange County to the pop culture behemoth it has become—spanning eight cities, hundreds of cast members, and millions of fans. Dave Quinn's Not All Diamonds and Rosé is the definitive oral history of the hit television franchise, from its unlikely start in the gated communities of Orange County to the pop culture behemoth it has become—spanning nine cities, hundreds of cast members, and millions of fans. i don’t remember if it was said on the show, but in the book brandi claims that kim referred to how denise was treating her as “abuse”, and no one says anything about it. like. are you kidding me? even if brandi’s story is true, having sex with someone, wanting it to be a secret/denying it, and wanting nothing to do with them is not abuse. just because brandi was in her feelings about it, does not make it abuse. the women and production will go wild if you call someone’s racist words/actions racist because “omg that’s inflammatory”, but brandi/kim can call denise abusive because she, in brandi’s words, “hit it and quit it”?

All these archetypes started appearing for me, and I had an idea to do a short film that was kind of a send-up of life in affluent suburbia; something tongue-in-cheek and a little parodistic. Then, around 2003, reality TV was becoming big business. It made me think of the Loud family, who were on PBS’s An American Family. And I said to myself, “There are plenty of characters here who are just as compelling. Maybe this could be a reality series? What would that look like?” This exhaustive oral history features dishy interviews with 185 cast and crew members behind the Bravo phenomenon. Fans will delight to read about how it all got started.” just like in the show, garcelle was the only one in the book to defend denise. and don’t think i didn’t notice how the producer’s treatment of denise (and fourth wall breaking) isn’t mentioned at all, but they made sure to turn their nose up at denise’s “unprofessionalism” and the “bravo bravo bravo” comments. the women also continue to spin the tale of “denise was shaming and vilifying us for talking about sex, even though she always talked about sex” when that was very clearly not what happened at all.

What is it really like to be a housewife? We all want to know, but only the women we love to watch and the people who make the show have the whole story. Well, listen in close, because they're about to tell all. After every season of The Real Housewives, Cohen hosts a reunion to talk about everything that happened over the season. But at the start of the series (when Orange County was the only city), the reunion was not like it is today. Not All Diamonds and Rosé is the must-have book for every Housewives obsessed fan and casual viewer. So pour an ice-cold glass of pinot grigio (or three), forget your worries, and listen close. The ladies are about to get real. E! News can exclusively reveal your first look at the book cover, featuring a peach, a diamond, an orange and an apple, nods to RHOA, RHOBH, RHOC and RHONYC respectively.

The author has friendships with several housewives; he doesn't hide this on social media. However, he is friends with some of the more problematic 'wives that fans would like to see questioned fairly about their behavior. This doesn't happen. If a cast member seemed to get off easy, I would bet you'll find a photo of the author and the cast member together within a ten-second Google.
