The hit show that revolves around the breed that spawns from Jersey has been around for only four seasons, but pop culture can't seem to get enough of the Garden State phenomenon. Now, a new book -- Jersey Girls, penned by Chicago chics Marie Moss and Barri Leiner, proves that these rare high-haired types, known for their moxie and mouths, can be as entertaining as the TV shows themselves.
Last week at the W Lakeshore Hotel, these broads worked the cool crowd and signed their books for a crowd of hip chicago fans. The W's top-floor lounge was host to the event where guests slurped up the brash-y hard covered books (3 cases, sold out!), sipped signature W cocktails, and talked shop about the author's Hollywood store, M&B Vintage. Oh, and there was plenty of gossip about, well....Jersey Girls.
