Kim Richards Book Release Delayed By Almost A Year

While I’m interested in reading a book “written by” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kim Richards, I can’t help feeling like her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton are pretty nervous about the tea she’s gonna spill. I mean whoever actually wrote this book Kim referred to herself as a “whipping post of a sister” in a press release about the book. I cannot help feeling like that’s a direct dig at Kyle.

The book was supposed to be released on April 28, 2020, but now her sisters her fans will have to wait almost a year to read the book.

According to an article from TMZ, Kim’s book will now be released in February 2021. But, why the delay?

Kim’s ghostwriter Alison Kingsley Baker is suing Kim for refusing to pay her, which is weird since Kim got a $300,000 advance from her publisher. A judge ordered Kim to pay the ghostwriter $5,075.

Apparently, that trial was a hot mess, which really isn’t surprising. At all. Someone who was supposedly in the courtroom told TMZ Kim “began unraveling excuse after excuse as to why she hadn’t paid her ghostwriter despite receiving a $300,000 advance from her publisher.” Oh, Kim. This is taking me back to Kim missing multiple flights for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast trip in Hawaii. It’s tough to picture this woman ever being on time for anything, even writing a book about her own life story.

Aside from not paying the actual author of the book, it’s rumored that Kyle and Kathy are worried about what Kim might share in the book. In previous interviews, Kyle admitted Kim never told her she was writing a book and that she hoped the content would not lead to another family feud.
