The book, which is introduced by Jill Kargman is Lyss second book, and she was joined by friends including, Stacy Kestin, Lisa Levin, Alison Zipes, Dawn Goldstein, Sheryl Burke, and Bonnie Marcus. Midway through the event Lyss gathered the attendees to make a speech talking about her inspiration for writing the book and her journey through motherhood. She said, "My dear friend Sheryl and I were having coffee at 8 in the morning and it was just pure madness. The emails were going off and everyone wanted everything and I just had it. I put my foot down and said 'You know what, Motherhood is a Bitch' and then Sheryl shouted, ' That’s it! That's your next book!' and the journey began."
She then thanked everyone for attending and showing their support and ended with, "Everyday of this journey there's something else that comes our way and we have to put a smile on our face and do what we need to do. So, hopefully this book empowers you to sometimes put your foot down and say no, raise above and feel beautiful inside and out."Motherhood Is a B#tch, a follow up to Stern’s 2009 best-seller, If You Give a Mom a Martini… 100 Ways to Find 10 Blissful Minutes for Yourself, is the modern mom’s guide for dealing with the day-to-day chaos of child rearing with style, savvy and grace. The book provides an easy, light-hearted program to empower frazzled moms to channel their inner b#tch and seize control of their lives. Stern tells it like it is, explaining how women can lose their sense of self once they have children and why it’s important to reclaim it.Guests enjoyed "deLysscious" ice cream sundaes, cake designed by Danette Tagla, and cocktails including the Lyss' signature B#tchtini made from with rosé, watermelon vodka and watermelon juice.
