#BookReview: The Wig, the Bitch & the Meltdown by @MrJayManuel

Synopsis: The Wig, The Bitch & The Meltdown is a satirical look behind the scenes of Model Muse, a fictional reality model competition show and global phenomenon. Seen through the eyes of our moral compass Pablo Michaels-the heart of production in the helter-skelter world of Model Muse-we see behind the scenes and backstage shenanigans of the fashion/reality TV world. As "The Fixer," Pablo is the man everyone turns to in crisis. Struggling to hold the fledgling production together, he juggles his duties to his "BFF," the ruthless and vulnerable antihero Keisha Kash, his Supermodel boss while trying to hold on to his own soul.When the show is renewed after its sensational first season, this satire takes up where The Devil Wears Prada left us, only now we're on the runway, itself. Think Crazy Rich Asians meets Ladies Who Punch and a dish of Dulce de Leche.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review:  
This book is a must read for any America's Next Top Model or Mr. Jay fan!!! I literally couldn't put this book down and devoured it in a few hours. Jay's writing made me feel like I was there with Pablo behind the scenes of the fashion/modeling industry. I could see several obvious references to the show so it has me wondering how much of it is fiction and how much is based on real events. This was such a fun read! I hope to see more from Jay Manuel in the future. 


Grammy, Tony, and Emmy award-winning performer, Billy Porter: "I clutched my pearls through this page-turning read that's laugh-out-loud funny-she's a ki-ki, darling! It's equally heartbreaking, suspenseful, and always fast-paced. The category is: legendary."
Actress, singer, and fashion designer Vanessa Williams: "Jay has a singular voice which manages to be indulgent and gossipy, while still smart and sharp."
