Kelly Bandas joins Heather and Brittany to discuss her new book, Rookie Mistakes. She shares her inspiration for writing the book, and how she managed to do it with three boys at home during a pandemic. Kelly’s love of pop culture shine throughout the book, so of course, the Okayest Moms had to talk all things Bravo and reality tv with her too.
