Rementa “Remmi” Broughton was determined
to become one of the most successful, sought after black
female actresses in the film industry. She wasn’t above doing
whatever necessary to get what she wanted, regardless of how
low down and dirty it might appear to be. In a short amount
of time, Remmi went from a renowned video vixen to “The
JCPenney Girl” in television commercials and ultimately to a
lovable Hollywood movie star. Along with Shanelle Anderson,
her long-time best friend/partner-in-crime, Remmi’s road to
success entailed deception, lies, betrayal, treachery, envy
and numerous sexual favors. Now that Remmi has finally made
it big in the film world, the ugly past threatens to destroy
everything that she’s worked so hard to build. But Remmi
wasn’t going down without a fight. After all, as her mother

Readers, take a deep breath and exhale
slowly because you are about to embark upon a hell of a
rollercoaster ride when you dive into A Girl’s Gotta Eat.
Remmi and Shanelle’s characters were just the type of women
that I loved to hate; yet, I took pleasure in getting to know
them. They were like a die-hard, ghetto-fabulous-type of the
famous Thelma and Louise. Nothing, I truly mean nothing, could
stop them from reaching their goal and coming out on top.
There were times where I felt sorry for them, others where I
screamed “Oh, no they didn’t!”, and moments where I was filled
with joy at their outcome. Needless to say, there were a few
hard life lessons learned for both of the women that made them
realized that sometimes costly consequences resulted from
actions taken. Once I started the journey with A Girl’s
Gotta Eat, I couldn’t put this book down until the
last words were read. I am delighted to bestow A Girl’s
Gotta Eat as Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read.
