In her hilarious New York Times bestseller You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again, Heather McDonald recounted her adventures as an unwilling virgin in Hollywood. Now happily married with three wonderful kids, she shows that life as a grown-up—even a pretend grown-up—has its challenges. Heather’s a working mom with parents who live next door; a sister who keeps asking for one of her still fertile eggs; and friends who are up to more hijinks than even Heather can handle.

This self-proclaimed “Real Housewife of Woodland Hills” is determined to achieve A-list status (thus expanding her entourage beyond her three school-aged children and a house-husband who is infuriatingly bad at collecting neighborhood gossip) and defeat (or at least be accepted by) the mean neighborhood moms who judge her for taking her kids to a stripper pool party in Vegas. It’s a lot to juggle when she’s also battling her Chelsea Lately coworkers for the crudest and most elaborate practical jokes (don’t ask her about that “free” Vera Wang dress).

Just as laugh-out-loud funny and irreverent in her storytelling as she is on camera as Chelsea Handler’s partner-in-crime, in My Inappropriate Life Heather recounts her misadventures with a disarming candor all her own.

“Most moms that you work with come to your desk uninvited and start showing you photos or telling you boring stories about their kids.… Not Heather McDonald. Instead she shows me photos of her new pool.” —Jen Kirkman, author of I Can Barely Take Care of Myself

“I don’t know any other person who can tell me they are ‘over trees,’ mean it, make me laugh about it, and at the same time make me wonder if perhaps I am, too.” —Sarah Colonna, author of Life as I Blow It

    " I had fun reading through her stories but I didn't find it laugh out loud funny and the name dropping made it less so. I get they give their friends credit by naming them but I felt like it was a little too much. I hear her first book was really good. Maybe I should try that one? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mom | 1/9/2014

    " Very funny family and parenting stories of a tv celebrity/stand-up comic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie Oien | 1/6/2014

    " Seriously read this front to back all at once. Love Heather McDonald. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 1/6/2014

    " I didn't love every chapter, but several pages in this book made me laugh out loud. It is vulgar at times, but if you are the right audience and in the right mood, it is a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Woods Walker | 12/23/2013

    " Moderately funny, but you'll wind up thanking the gods you don't work anywhere near Chelsea Lately more than you will yukking it up. A resounding meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rheannon | 12/21/2013

    " Nothing too thrilling here. I chuckled a few times but mostly I feel like she was trying too hard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 11/8/2013

    " Really funny stories! I laughed out loud throughout. She is very entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sari | 10/3/2013

    " I'm a fan of Heather McDonald from Chealsea Lately. I really enjoyed her first book. It was laugh out loud funny. This book was funny but not as good as the first one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise Rolon | 9/3/2013

    " This book definitely had some funny parts, but I could not get comfortable with the writer's point of view. It all seemed very People magazine to me. Ultimately not worth the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 9/1/2013

    " So crude. So funny. So can't relate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 8/2/2013

    " As all books, the 2nd is never as good as a debut. Heather's voice is apparent throughout and definitely provided some laughs and snorts. It just didn't have me laughing AS loud as her first novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad Howard | 7/10/2013

    " Hilarious - I highly recommend this if you're a fan of Heather's or Chelsea Handler! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 7/8/2013

    " Easy read and laugh-out-loud funny. Another hit from Heather McDonald! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Willson | 6/5/2013

    " Made me laugh but cringe at the same time. Heather is either a horrible parent and wife or a witty and clever storyteller...still not quite sure which. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emeri Yarnoff | 6/2/2013

    " In a need for a laugh or a smile, great read. Having kids is not a requirement to enjoy!! "

    " Anecdotal, but not as hilarious as I expected. "
