Advice on how to have healthy, dynamic relationships from RaaShaun (DJ Envy) and Gia Casey, revealing their secrets to navigating marriage, family, and faith—now in paperback!

USA Today National Bestseller
Publisher’s Weekly National Bestseller

Gia and RaaShaun Casey met when they were two teenagers living around the corner from each other in Queens. They have been together for an astounding 25 years and have remained together through RaaShaun’s growing fame, a devastating (and very public) cheating scandal, and the births of five children. Now, a quarter of a century into their relationship, they are stronger and more committed to each other than they’ve ever been, and their fans are clamoring to know how they did it.

In Real Life, Real Love, Gia and RaaShaun explore the entire chronology of their love story with remarkable vulnerability, searing honesty, and a lot of humor. It’s a riveting narrative about how to grow together, an aspirational guidebook for people who seek the same unconditional love in their relationships, and an in-depth look at how to remain equals after being thrust into the public eye.
