The first few chapters start very much like a biography - talking about her childhood and teens, which was quite interested - learning about how she grew up with some of the TOWIE cast members (Lucy and Amy), and her flings with Mark Wright when she was 16. All very interesting to read if you're a fan of the show, but it then quickly just falls down to Sam basically describing her looks and fashion sense. In all honestly, about 70% of each chapter revolves around her appearance; infact in about 5 chapters all she does is describe her hair, her fashion sense, her diet, her makeup and then her tanning.. all very boring to be honest, and almost somewhat "page filling".
In all honest, there is not MUCH description about TOWIE itself - I don't know whether this is because Sam's still contracted into the show, and therefore can't discuss it in depth, or what (as she says - she's grateful for what they have given her), and she only really described the stuff that TOWIE has produced; she discusses her business Minnie's, doing P.A.'s (personal appearances) across the UK, and then TOWIE winning a BAFTA.Read more ›
She mentions her childhood, relationship with her biological father and of course Mark., in my eyes she seems a little bit desperate for him, saying she never knows what the future holds with them to after mentioning how she took him to her Christmas work party and he claimed he had went home sick when he really slept with a glamour model, she's on about Lauren having no self respect etc what about her!
To be honest I think Sam is way up herself and this book reflects her cocky attitude, and confirms what a nasty piece of work she really is, and I also think she is way over rated and ver average looking but she seems to think otherwise and its quite funny reading her "make up tips" lol.
No real juicy gossip, defo not worth the £12 price tag, this was book was a birthday present so glad never paid to dead this!
