Did you miss me? Sorry I haven’t been guest blogging for New York the past couple of weeks, but things have been so crazy since my season started and my book came out. I was on a book tour, went to LA, got my girls’ pictures taken, and celebrated my birthday. It’s been so crazy! But so great as well. My book Skinny Italian hit the New York Times bestseller list this week!!! If you bought a copy, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. It means the world to me. And if you haven’t gotten it yet, but are thinking about it, it’s not only over 60 healthy recipes for delicious, easy-to-cook Italian food, there’s also tons of other information in it: how to buy olive oil, how to dress sexy, "Six Rules for Loving Your Food and Having it Love You Back." You will LOVE it, I promise.
Of course, you’re all New York fans, and I’m a straight shooter, so I wanted to clear up right now that the title of my book had nothing to do with Bethenny (please!). Books take a long time to publish, and when mine was going to print, her only book was her first book: Naturally Thin. My publisher wanted to get across that my authentic Italian recipes were "skinny" - you get it? I make "skinny" Italian food. When Bethenny decided to name her second book the Skinnygirl Dish, my book was already to press. But really, Skinny Bitch was out a year before both of our books, and there are a million books with "skinny" in the title. Bethenny’s books are great, but totally different. Mine is about living the Mediterranean lifestyle, has full color photographs and nutritional information for all the recipes, tons of fun facts and even a little behind-the-scenes Housewives gossip. So there you go. You can love, love, love us all! We certainly all love you guys!
By the way, an official congrats to Bethenny on the birth of baby Bryn. She is gorgeous!
