Set behind the scenes of America's most popular guilty pleasure-reality TV-Reality Jane delivers a high-spirited, delicious tale of finding love and a career in Hollywood while juggling lipo envy, singlehood angst, and the resounding results of success. Reality Jane follows Jane Kaufman, a Canadian journalist who, because of a lucky connection, finds herself in LA as a producer on a hot new reality show. Mingling with rock stars, attending Grammy parties, and visiting the Sex Kitten Mansion, Jane sees her new career as a one-way ticket to the big-time! But for a small-town girl thrust into the cutthroat Hollywood scene, ninety-hour work weeks, heartless bosses, and superficial womanizers are a rude awakening. Just when her love life seems at its bleakest, along come not one but two guys vying for her heart: hunky Alex, a hot up-and-coming reality show host, and Grant, a sweet, sincere cameraman who's unfazed by Hollywood fame. With a sizzling sex life on the horizon, and maybe even true love, Jane's fondest hopes seem en-route to full realization when she lands the cherry gig of all time: a producer's post on TV's hottest new self-help talk show. But the deeper Jane ventures into reality TV, the more completely un-real her life-personal and professional-becomes. And the realities of life behind-the-scenes-like goading people to confess their deepest, darkest secrets on cue-are chipping away at her very soul. Lead character (and narrator) Jane embodies the perfect blend of smart-ass sarcasm, weary cynicism, and hopeful romanticism to appeal to today's readers. She also possesses a biting, acerbic wit that casts devilish, laugh-out-loud observations on the Hollywood scene, which are sure to please celeb watchers and reality show junkies alike. A hugely entertaining glimpse at the world of reality TV from one of its own, who's lived and breathed the business practically since its inception, Reality Jane is the chick-lit novel that reality TV junkies and chick-lit enthusiasts have long been waiting for.
