Erin Kotecki Vest of Queen of Spain
Whether outspoken Erin Kotecki Vest is telling us how to survive Thanksgiving with our conservative relatives (thank you!) or how hard it is for her to have her picture taken now that she’s been ravaged by lupus, we find ourselves cheering her on and even laughing out loud at the strangest moments. This is the joy of reading Queen of Spain – where honesty and wit turn every entry into something to savor.
Before she decided to investigate her own life, Erin spent ten years as a broadcast journalist in Los Angeles, Orlando, and Detroit, and even won six Golden Mic Awards with L.A. news institution KFWB. We can’t help but think that her former life is at least partially responsible for her current incarnation. No matter how opinionated, controversial, and in-your-face her posts get, Erin is still able to pull them off with a base level of charm that keeps you coming back for more – a pro to the core.
