Starter Wife : A Novel (Unabridged) (CD/Spoken Word) (Gigi Levangie Grazer)
about this item
When her husband Kenny dumps her (by cell phone) mere months before their ten-year wedding anniversary, Gracie Pollock finds herself reeling. Though her role as the wife of a semifamous Hollywood studio executive often left her cold, Gracie had grown accustomed to the unique privileges extended to Tinseltown’s power elite: reservations at Spago on a Friday night; beauty treatments by dermatologists (Arnie), manicurists (Jessica), and colorists (Christophe) to the stars; line-jumping at Disneyland with her daughter and Ugg-wearing celebrity offspring. And despite consenting to naming their daughter Jaden in a (failed) attempt to lure Will Smith into one of Kenny’s productions, Gracie believed she and Kenny were different from other Hollywood couples. She never thought she’d be a starter wife. But now that her marriage is over, she’s a social pariah, and it’s only through afaux pas by her world-class florist that she learns her husband has upgraded: Kenny is dating a pop tartlet.
With images of the ‘tween queen everywhere she turns, Gracie seeks refuge at her best friend’s Malibu mansion for some much-needed divorce therapy. Soon she’s associating with all the wrong people, including a mysterious hunk who saves her from drowning, the security guard at her gated community, and—God forbid—Kenny’s boss, one of Hollywood’s better-known Lotharios.
With her signature wit, sassy style, and cameos of the rich and famous—and wannabe rich and famous—Gigi Grazer tackles the most delicious and dastardly details of a divorce and recovery, Hollywood style.
