"It was hands down the most rewarding and therapeutic thing I've ever done, most vulnerable, including being on 'Vanderpump Rules,'" Kristen explained to the magazine. "Because I was really forced to sit down and dissect all of these relationships and kind of figure out 'what did I get out of each thing' as we went along with these stories."

According to Kristen, she went into the writing process asking herself the question, "What did I gain positively and sort of bring on negatively into my life that I brought into the next relationship?"

"I think every woman can really relate to this," Kristen continued of her memoir. "We've always had that one guy or multiple guys who have said we're crazy, or our ex-boyfriends telling his new girlfriend that his ex-girlfriend was crazy. But why were we crazy?"

According to Kristen, women have often become crazy because of the men they've involved themselves with.

"We were emotional, because we loved too hard, we loved too quickly, we were just feeling our feelings and speaking our mind, and then that made us crazy," she explained.

"So rather than continuing this pedestal sort of 'crazy Kristen' that was put on per 'Vanderpump Rules,' and rather than that having a negative connotation, Michelle and I were like, well, wait a minute. If all women are crazy, this can't be a bad thing. So let's take this word back and sort of explain — of course, facetiously, we are very self-deprecating in the book — about the kinds of the mistakes that I made, but also what part did he have in it? Rather than the woman, it just being all of her fault all the time," Kristen shared.
