A pretty mess? Her no-nonsense, zero fucks attitude is refreshing! As a girl from a small town in Georgia, Erika has used her natural talent and her strong will to become the successful performer, business woman, wife, and mother that she is today. Like every other housewife bio I’ve read, Erika Jayne’s book was written really bad. I love this play, but I wish I'd checked the cast list before buying. I also admire that she is in her late 40s (a couple of years older than me) and is showing that middle aged women can be sexy, beautiful, and bold. You see how some of her past events shaped her attitude and personality. Tickets were affordable, seating was good. I was hoping to learn something about Erika's lifestyle. I wanted to rate this higher because I love Erika but eh was kind of boring in places and all over the place at times. I suspect those reviewers would never say that about a man. I really enjoyed this memoir. I’ve never found a biography so relatable - especially from a celebrity! She’s pretty reserved and quite about her actual life on the tv show (compared to the other women), and it was nice t learn more about her.
