The Real Housewives of New York Book Collection

To celebrate the end of this season’s The Real Housewives of New York, let’s take a look at some of the books these women have put out.  After all, these are women with roots in Long Island (or at least the Hamptons).

First up:  Countess LuAnn deLesseps – her 2009 book, Class With The Countess,  a book designed to share her philosophy on living with elegance.  The Countess offers her tips for making a fabulous first impression, how to make other’s comfortable, table manners and how to make a man feel good about himself.  The irony of the book’s publication as the Countess was in the midst of a divorce due to adultery can’t be discounted.

Jill Zarin, her sister and mom put out a book titled Secrets of a Jewish Mother .  You have to give Zarin credit for sharing the press that stems from her celebreality with her family (although her mom has stolen the spotlight once or twice and sister Wexler has a radio show).  This book offers up scenarios and allows each woman to offer their way of handling things.  Zarin and co were recently at the Book Revue, where you can probably still score a signed copy of the book.

On May 23, 2010, you can meet Alex McCord and her husband, Simon at the Carle Place Barnes & Nobles, where they will be signing copies of their new book, Little Kids, Big City.   This parenting tome discusses the challenges of raising children in a city like New York.  The book was just released last month

Bethenny Frankel has had two books come out – Naturally Thin, and Skinnygirl Dish, a book of recipes. She takes her culinary training and attempts to demonstrate how the masses can imitate her weight success.

Overall, the Housewives should consider themselves fortunate to have such a high profile platform to launch books that might otherwise never have made it into the publishing world.
