The Chrishell Stause book release has been highly anticipated in the Selling Sunset fandom, and now it's finally time to alert your book group of its arrival.

Under Construction: Because Living My Best Life Took a Little Work has just hit shelves and will give Netflix bingers a peek at the reality TV realtor's life from a new perspective. 

Although there is plenty of glitz and glam on the series, like Davina's $75 million listing, the drama and clashes between co-workers just might outshine those swanky spaces. 

Stause has been caught up in tabloid headlines and has certainly gone through very public breakups—fans are still asking "Are Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim still dating?"—but she decided to use this literary experience as a chance to change the narrative.

Gossip runs rampant on reality TV shows, but Under Construction takes on a role that lends itself to a self-care book rather than a tabloid. 

From career highs and lows, to a public breakup with actor Justin Hartley and the devastating death of her parents, Stause touches on it all in her memoir and uses her failures and heartache as a teaching tool. 

"Now that people constantly reach out asking me for advice and connecting with me about things we’ve both gone through, it did feel like I’m finally in a place where it feels like I can help people in a position where I lived through this," she revealed to Forbes.

Although we have some time before the next season drops—and new drama unfolds in LA—you and your favorite bibliophiles can catch up with Stause's story at your next get-together. Cocktails and Emma's empanadas not required but highly encouraged.

Catch Selling Sunset on Netflix.
