Publisher Comments:

Jenni Pulos, from Bravo's Flipping Out and Interior Therapy, pens a charming memoir-advice book on how to survive (and thrive) in any situation

Jenni Pulos has specialized in a lifetime of disappointments. Shes been publicly humiliated, dumped by her spouse on national television, told shed never make it in Hollywood, encouraged by her family with inspiring questions like, "when are you getting a real job?" and has not only survived but thrived as a result. Despite her struggles and setbacks, Jenni has gone from a "wannabe" aspiring actress and comedian to becoming one of Bravo's most beloved personalities.

With hilarious reality meets insanity anecdotes from her life and career, Jenni writes candidly on how to go from victim to victor . . . most of the time. Her book is more of an advice how-not-to story that includes:

  • Jennis top ten tested and proven ways to fail forward
  • How she turned her negative self-talk into positive self-beliefs
  • How Jenni handles people who didn't want her to succeed
  • How she stopped fretting over things she didn't have control over
  • How she found her self-worth and finally found the love she never thought shed have

Grin and Bear It is the spark we all need to ignite our passion, to get out there and be positive, find the funny in life, to be present, and learn how to be happy no matter what reality throws your way.

Review:

"Pulos, of Bravo's reality series Flipping Out, charms in this frank and self-deprecating cross between memoir and how-not-to guide. Pulos readily admits that her home life has been anything but calm; from her childhood dream of being an actress to beginning a 'temporary' job working for Jeff Lewis, a real-estate investor-turned Bravo reality-show star. She confesses she's always been a people-pleaser and provides a blueprint for getting along without losing your own identity. In addition to offering useful advice from her own experiences — such as 'you can fail, be betrayed, and be totally humiliated on national television and not die' and 'the worst-case scenario often isn't' — Pulos shares tough-love advice from her alter ego, the tough-talking, get it done 'Deb.' She isn't shy about revealing her personal life — like the breakup of her first marriage on national TV or a humiliating encounter with a negative former teacher while working at a grocery store — which only serves to make her more appealing and relatable. Pulos's central message in this encouraging volume is one that anyone would be smart to heed: when you're going through hell, keep on going, because everything works out in the end. 20 b&w photos."
