LoveReading View on Celebutantes

What is interesting in this gossip-filled, bitch-rich tale is the appearance of numerous real celebs which really makes this stab-‘em-when-you-can, scandal-led yarn a bit different and very cleverly done.  The authors are insiders, daughters of successful producers so the whole Hollywood, Oscar week background is for real.

Comparison: Lauren Weisberger, Candace Bushnell, Holly Peterson.

Sarah Broadhurst

Celebutantes Synopsis

What would you do if you were born on Oscar night into Hollywood royalty? If you went to Vanity Fair parties rather than birthday parties? And if your life felt like a glamourous movie - but you were only an extra in it, playing boyfriendless, jobless hopeful no.310?

Meet Lola Santisi. She's an Actorholic. Stuck in a pattern of dating beautiful actors then as soon as she's got over the dazzle of their teeth and the rockhard abs, realising they're just as self-obsessed as the last one. She's gone cold-turkey, and resolved to plough her energy into helping her friends instead.

Julian, Lola's BGF (best gay friend), is a designer on the up. But he'll be down and out if he can't get someone to wear his designs on Oscar night so persuades Lola to become his Hollywood Ambassador. Lola's best friend Kate, is an ambitious young agent desperate to sign a big name. Together with their other friend, Cricket, a ditzy actress aspiring to play something other than a coma victims on ER, they must navigate through celebrity-hell if they're ever going to make it to the red carpet...
