Book Review of Happy Housewives

Happy Housewives


This book is a train wreck. Perhaps Darla Shine is not a horrible person in real life, but she certainly portrays herself as a very judgmental lady in her writing. At one point she admitted that she wanted to push her shopping cart right into an overweight woman's "big fat ***" because she was angry that the woman was so unhealthy and teaching her overweight child to be unhealthy too. Wow. There are other gems in this book, too, about how we should basically use our husbands simply for money and sex and get emotional fulfillment from our friends, since apparently men aren't capable of holding a conversation or putting the toilet seat down. Some may enjoy her vapid, witchy banter. But this housewife prefers to stay positive.
