Discover how to embrace your best basic self in this laugh-out-loud funny guidebook from the breakout star of Bravo’s hit reality show Vanderpump Rules, perfect for fans of the relatable and entertaining books by The Betches and Andi Dorfman.
Millions of Vanderpump Rules viewers and podcast listeners know Stassi Schroeder as a major defender of Basic Bitch rights. There’s nothing more boring than people who take themselves too seriously or think that you have to be pretentious to be cool. Stassi champions the things that many of us are afraid to love publicly for fear of being labeled basic: lattes, pugs, bubbly cocktails, millennial pink, #OOTD (outfit of the day, obvs), astrology, hot dogs, the perfect pair of Louboutins, romantic comedies...the list goes on and on.
This book is for people tired of pretending they would rather see a Daniel Day-Lewis movie about sewing or read War and Peace than watch a Saw marathon or read...well, this book!
In Next Level Basic, the reality star, podcast queen, and ranch dressing expert gives you hilarious and pointed lessons on how to have fun and celebrate yourself, with exclusive stories from her own life and on the set of Vanderpump Rules. From her very public breakups to her most intimate details about her plastic surgery, Stassi shares her own personal experiences with her trademark honesty—all with the hope you can learn something from them.

You have to get Stassi’s personality to “get it.” Her matter of fact book will really hit home with lots of people who have watched her grow up on Vanderpump. Her life being an open book she embraced her life lessons and worked to get where she is at. Bravo Stassi... good job!
Have watched Vanderpump on Bravo even though I am Science & Business background person, I enjoy the other side occasionally Bravo shows explore/offer...That said I am enjoying this light, well sort of light & funny young vibes read by Stassi Schroeder. Chapter 4 I almost went out and tossed the book in my Chimenea to burn! Chapter 4 Obsessed her love of all things "death" "ghost" "devil" "666" etc leaves me praying for her soul as she is clearly led astray by her sick obsessions. I get the "New Orleans" vibe and do get that but relate and choose GOD and the good force completely. We live in a world where good & evil are battling it out and GOOD will win although that requires us to choose the GOOD over evil. She plays in a world I would not.
Funniest book I’ve read in a long time!
Wow! What a great book. Who can out it down? "A must read." It's quite a ride. #$%^
