Hollywood Wives - Jackie Collins

4.5 stars rounded down. 


Thanks so much to my friend Jackie for passing this along to me. I don't think I've ever read a Jackie Collins novel before, I really enjoyed the referral. I do have a guilty pleasure of reading Hollywood novels. When I in high school, doing community theater and teen pageants, it was my goal to move to LA and continue acting and modeling. I was early accepted to a college there and my mom and I went to visit, I would have been there when this book came out. Fortunately or unfortunately, I hated L.A. Ironically, a friend from high school actually won a contest for an audition for Baywatch, but had no interest in acting. Sigh. I mention him, because he should have played Buddy had they made a movie.
