The hilarious and refreshingly honest memoir that tracks the highs and lows of the star of Celebrity Apprentice and Next Top Model.

Air Kiss & Tell: Memoirs of a blow-up doll is a book that shows us that things that are sparkly, glamorous and smooth on the outside can often be a little dark, awkward and unexpectedly windy on the inside.

Sometimes tragic, sometimes hilarious, Charlotte Dawson recalls many of the more noteworthy stories from her life so far - her career, her love life, her changeable relationship with the media and her least well-thought-out horse riding experience. Whatever you think your life is going to be like and however carefully you plan it, the white picket fences you expect can sometimes stick it to you right between the palings.

From modelling in Milan to sneaking empty wine bottles into the recycling bin, Charlotte has run the gamut of life experiences - some familiar, some ridiculous, and some blown suddenly off her balcony wearing nothing but a moustache and a smile. As these stories show, you can survive almost any of life's setbacks as long as you have determination, resilience, humour and a robust digestive system.

        Hilarious, witty and a different insight to the celebrity life that Charlotte Dawson lives. It paints a positive picture of her, that some people don't get to see. In this book, you experience the highs and lows, the good and bad, the hilarious and the darn right outrageous as though you were there with Charlotte.
        It was so worth the wait!

            This is just another Drama queen. She went to the hospital over twitters that were mean to her. And she acts ugly and mean all the time. The book is trash.
