Reality television has been around for a while now and I think it's interesting how people use their fame and extend it trying new things in the spotlight. I don't fault anyone for doing it. I just think it is interesting how we can all be chameleons with our careers.
For instance, Lauren Conrad (otherwise known as LC from Laguna Beach) ended up with a spinoff series called The Hills and then went on to design her own clothing label, is a rep for Mark (Avon cosmetics) and now has her own book series based loosely on her experience on set.
Hilary Duff, also known as Lizzie McGuire got her start on the Disney channel as a popular childstar, went on to make movies as a teenager, turned into a rockstar with several popular songs and recently married a professional hockey player. She has just written her first book - Elixir.
Now there is Nicole Richie, ironically the woman who started a family with Joel Madden (Hilary Duff's ex-boyfriend). She is/was/ ex/current BFFs with Paris Hilton (I can't keep up), starred in a reality television series called the Simple Life and has written a couple novels.
So to be honest, I know that these were in my mailbox several weeks ago and I haven't been able to get into the books because I just found other titles much more interesting at the time. Have you read any of these novels and what did you think of the storyline? Plot? Were they worthwhile? Do these "celebrity authors" do justice to this craft or should they stick to a different career path?
