Kyle Richards to Pen an Advice Tome


It's practically required that popular reality-TV stars write books, and Kyle Richards has wisely decided not to pass up the opportunity. The Beverly Hills crew's resident shiny-haired angry lady has signed a contract with HarperOne to publish "a lifestyle book," offering advice about marriage and parenting. Or, as she puts its, "I plan to write about my passions: My husband, family, work and the joy of juggling it all." ("Work" being left ambiguous there.) Obviously, some Housewives pull this off better than others, with Bethenny Frankel setting the highest standard in the Housewives community, and most of them finding middling literary success. But there's better news, in any case: Richards will appear on the second season of Beverly Hills, which has already begun filming. She'll have to win some spats in order to promote this thing.
