Not All Diamonds and Rosé: The Inside Story of The Real Housewives from the People Who Lived It


"I like to think of NOT ALL DIAMONDS AND ROSÉ as the ultimate reunion. I know readers will be surprised, entertained, and even shocked at what's in store." - Andy Cohen

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.

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.

Nearly all the wives, producers, and network executives, as well as Andy Cohen himself, are on the record, unfiltered and unvarnished about what it really takes to have a tagline. This is your VIP pass to the lives behind the glam squads, testimonials, and tabloid feuds.

Life's not all diamonds and rosé, but the truth is so much better, isn't it?

Editorial Reviews

"[Not All Diamonds and Rosé] spills the tea (or the rosé, if you prefer) on the reality empire with extensive reporting from the series' casts, producers, executives, and more."
―Entertainment Weekly

"As sweeping as it is scandalous...Fans will drink this up as quickly as the Housewives would a glass of champagne."
―Publishers Weekly

I thought this would be am inside scoop as told by a director in a narrative format, with some interesting facts from behind the scenes that we didn't already know. Instead it's literally just transcripts of dialogue between housewives reminiscing about their very first season or episode and recounting drama from several seasons ago. Waste of time and overpriced for something that reads like a group WhatsApp conversation.
A must read if you love HW! Many great stories from the ladies themselves! Congratulations Dave, your book is epic!

The author did a great job of pulling out the funniest and most moving bits of Housewives history and organizing them in a compelling way. After more than a decade of these women, you'd think you wouldn't be surprised by anything, but this book proved me wrong. Can't recommend it enough.

I really wished every housewife had spoken. There were a lot of one sided views. However, this was a great book.

Ehhh this was a miss for me. Most of the “tea” was already pretty well known and this book is clearly a mouth piece for Andy and his bias toward certain housewives (it’s published by his publishing house). The grammar errors were horrible, did anyone read this before it went to print? Save your money, not worth it.
