Not All Diamonds and Rosé by Dave Quinn

Dave Quinn's Not All Diamonds and Rosé is the definitive oral history of the hit Real Housewives TV franchise, from its unlikely start in the gated communities of Orange County to the pop culture behemoth it has become.

The unprecedented access to the hit reality TV franchise arrives just in time for an explosive The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tell all and the shocking season two return of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

Quinn pulls back the curtain to reveal all the not so rosé-y details in this definitive history of how the RH empire grew 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," per the book's publisher.

Readers will discover what it's really like to be a Real Housewife as the stars tell all.

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

Not All Diamonds and Rosé is published by Andy Cohen Books and will be released on Tuesday, Oct. 19. Pre-order your copy today wherever books are sold.
