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
