Diary of a dating diva
While I have read her column for some time, in this collection I was drawn into her psyche and enthralled by her unique style in a much deeper and more fulfilling way.In one story she writes,"Sometimes I feel like I live on a little island inside of my head.Do you find it difficult to cook the food you and your family enjoy during a busy day?Do you worry if it is delicious as well as nutritious?These favourites of the Shetty-Kundra household have been created to give you variety, taste and the occasional food coma. Shilpa Shetty Kundra is a popular Bollywood actor, model, entrepreneur and health enthusiast.A yoga believer, she produced a yoga DVD, and was first amongst actors making yoga ‘cool’.As someone who's read Barbarella from the get-go, I was struck how much I fun had reading her again! I'm not sure I can say I love this book as much as Barbarella & David love each other, but you'll know what I mean once you read it.As a San Diegan, I've been reading Barbarella's columns in the San Diego Reader for a few years (as well as seeing her face on TV) and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this collection of her best pieces!
I definitely recommend it to anyone with a strong constitution thirsting for raw, unadulterated delight! With the 'behind the scenes' peeks established fans will love, to favorite essays that will win new fans reading Barbarella for the first time, this book has something everyone will enjoy. Reading Barbarella's stories together brought me a sense of being closer to her than reading them weekly, and I have to also express a simple appreciation of how the stories are organized in a way that to me was just right.
Since I've been a long-time fan, I was delighted to see her husband and favorite subject David's commentary on pieces I recognized.
I'll leave the details a surprise, but both sides of their first date will have you chuckling!
I found myself cracking up at the family antics, tearing up at the low points, and even sharing in her anxiety as I read through each glimpse of the internal Diva.
You'll share in her anger, her love, her tears, and her laughter as you blaze through this page-turner.
