"Clever and hilarious." -- Joe Conklin, WIP Morning Show Was Melania Trump only a model? What is she thinking when she stares lifelessly at her husband? Does she regret her decision to become a trophy piece for a misogynistic buffoon? These are just some of the questions that are not definitely answered in this collection of humorous essays.After three years impersonating Melania Trump, actor and comedian Lauren LoGiudice is telling you everything she overheard while living in her skin. Like a regular sleuth LoGiudice gathered together all of the "actor hunches" that Melania's spirit whispered in her ear throughout their time together and typed them up for you to enjoy. She lifts the veil of mystery around the First Lady and goes right for the jewel-encrusted jugular.In Inside Melania you'll laugh through the scary-but-real to the absurd as "Melania" fills in the blanks of her mysterious past with diary entries and newspaper articles, reimagines Grimms' Fairy Tales and A Christmas Carol as allegories for her present position, unveils the subtexts of her Tweets and the secret non-meanings of her outfits, and, most importantly, reveals her secret rap fetish and Andrew Dice Clay impression. If you're frustrated by the current political climate and need a laugh than this will be your welcome reprieve."If Melania Trump is a woman re-born in America, a woman who changed her language, her country, her lifestyle, and even her body, the only thing that remained was her ambition to be the first lady of the world, then this book - Inside Melania - is her mirror. A comical mirror of her reality."-- Bojan Požar, Slovenian journalist and author of Melania Trump: The Inside Story"When I first spotted the cover of Inside Melania, I couldn't think of anyone I was less interested in learning more about than that soulless gold-digger. Then I opened the book and couldn't put it down. Lauren masterfully used satire, parody and irony to process the Slovenian Ice Queen through every comedic literary device in the English language, from fairy tales to dirty nursery rhymes to rap. Lauren's book returned me to the essential power and joy of good comedy, and showed me there were a lot of laughs inside a soulless gold-digger." -- Ritch Shydner, author of Kicking Through The Ashes - My Life As A Stand-up in the 1980's Comedy Boom"LoGiudice brings us the most authentic version of Melania Trump known to Melania Trump." -- Radhika Vaz, comedian and author of Unladylike: A Memoir"This book is proof that Lauren does her homework with every single aspect of her characters."-- John Di Domenico, Emmy Award Nominated Actor, Writer, Comedian, and Impersonator, Conan O'Brien, Trumpcast, Amazon Prime's Fake News: A Trump StoryLauren LoGiudice creates comedy through deeply flawed and painfully idiosyncratic characters. She has embodied some of the world's most mysterious cultural icons, including Greta Garbo, Melania Trump, Mary Poppins, and all of the women in her Italian-American family.
