"My pretties, we did it!!! #PrettyMess made it to the NY Times Best Seller! I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you," she wrote about the accomplishment. It's an achievement that those in the Bravo family are familiar with, with everyone from Andy Cohen, to Bethenny Frankelto Teresa Giudice, to Fredrik Eklund having previously landed on the list with their own books.

Erika's Pretty Mess is a very revealing look at the woman behind the designer duds and big blonde hair. It gives fans an insight into her youth, her friendships, and her marriage to Tom Girardi.

The Daily Dish caught up with her at a book signing in NYC the week it hit stores — and she dished more about putting pen to paper. "Well, I think, if anything, the book is just my life. It's a story, much like anyone else's story, told behind the being [of] an artist. And if you go to class, if you're inspired to go back to school, if you're inspired to hit the gym — that's what it's all about. It's an easy, fun read meant to make you laugh and smile."

And while there are humorous aspects of the book, Erika never shies away from getting real about the painful moments of her life as well. "I wasn't nervous or scared about sharing anything. Obviously, I thought it out and I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out," she said. "I think it's definitely a more intimate view of my life." -Additional reporting by Laura Rosenfeld
