Just because Kelly has resolved to stay in his own lane and let seasoned chefs publish collections of inspiring recipes doesn’t mean he’s left us hanging on any of his great advice. With years under his belt of helping people seriously upgrade their style, party-hosting, home-decorating, and cocktail-mixing between What Not to Wear and The Chew, Kelly has released not one, but two books on overall glamorous living. There’s Freakin’ Fabulous: How to Dress, Speak, Behave, Eat, Drink, Entertain, Decorate, and Generally Be Better than Everyone Else, and the follow-up, Freakin’ Fabulous on a Budget (via Amazon).
According to the book synopsis for the first of the pair, these books will teach you everything from impeccable table manners to how to poach an egg to how to mix the perfect gin and tonic (via Amazon). So, they’re kind of like cookbooks, but for whipping up an overall stylish, efficient, fulfilling life. That’s a recipe for success we can all definitely get behind.
Kelly also put his writing and journalism skills to use with I Hate Everyone, Except You, an autobiographical essay collection that is full of the TV personality and author’s signature blend of snark and warmth (via ClintonKelly.com). It seems we may never get a straightforward book full of dishes to cook and how to cook them from Kelly, but we’ll certainly get great reading material and insightful guidance.
