Lyss Stern’s latest book, Motherhood Is a B#tch!: 10 Steps to Regaining Your Sanity, Sexiness, and Inner Diva, is the modern mom’s guide for dealing with the day-to-day chaos of child-rearing with style, savvy and grace. AThe book provides an easy, light-hearted program to empower frazzled moms to channel their inner b#tch and seize control of their lives. As a mom of three, Stern knows her stuff. To celebrate new her book, she held a fabulous launch party at Upper East Side ice-cream spot Cool Mess. 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. During the event, Lyss thanked her many guest and friends for the support and also dished on her inspiration to write the book, “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.”
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. Stern then invited attendees to ask questions, read the book and learn more about how they can help every mom through motherhood.
When she’s not writing best sellers, Lyss Stern runs Divalysscious Moms, a networking company specifically for moms, with cool, chic, kid-friendly activities like a grand opening of the Fendi Kids boutique on Fifth Avenue. Stern tackles the toughest issues facing moms today drawing from personal experiences. She explains, “It’s about confidence and control and knowing when and where to dig your four-inch heels into the ground. It’s about standing up for yourself and giving voice to your needs and feelings. It’s about not being selfless or selfish, but striking the right balance between the two.”
