Some celebrities are respected in their professions while others are mocked. Irrespective of their social standing, many of them decide to write books. Again some are well-composed productions but most are downright insulting to an average reader. Here are 8 of the worst books written by celebrities.
Table of contents:
- paris hilton’s ‘confessions of an heiress: a tongue-in-cheek peek behind the pose

1 Paris Hilton’s ‘Confessions of an Heiress: a Tongue-in-Cheek Peek behind the Pose
This pathetic piece of literature is Paris’ attempt to show just how over privileged and badly behaved she is. It is full of useless tips like ‘never wake up before 10am’ and ‘smile sweetly when faced with confrontation’. There are no major confessions to speak of except that her hair is naturally curly. Well done Paris, you have totally lived up to your reputation.
2 Justin Bieber’s ‘First Step 2 Forever’
A sixteen year-old writing his memoirs is definitely a joke, particularly if the subject has just become a music star. Bieber attempts to share all his meaningful experiences including how pizza is just fabulous and girls are amazing. This crisp 240-page book has more photos than text and is really another way to milk his fans of their allowance.
3 Naomi Campbell’s ‘Swan’
This book by Naomi Campbell was not actually authored by her. It is assumed that she just provided her insights into the modeling profession. The story, which is poorly written and mostly disjointed, follows the life of the supermodel Swan and the effort to find her replacement.
4 Kim Catrall’s ‘Satisfaction’
Here’s an example of an actress using her on-screen role to make some extra cash. Satisfaction is Kim Cattral’s, the sex obsessed star of Sex and the City, self-help book on how to achieve an orgasm. It is not clear why Kim believes she is an expert on the subject. The one thing she has proved is her prowess at faking it.
5 Sarah Palin’s ‘Going Rogue’
Sarah Palin shot to fame when she became Senator John McCain’s vice presidential candidate during the 2008 US presidential election. No one really knew her before then and naturally she had to ride the tide of her celebrity with a less than useful book. While it claims to talk about the election, it is mostly about her life pre-2008, which is less than interesting.
6 David Hasselhoff’s ‘Making Waves’
This autobiography of the Baywatch star is full of forgettable anecdotes about his life and ‘truly surreal’ experiences. What is also unbearable is the Hoff’s attempt to claim credit for changing the lives of big names like Sammy Davis Jr and Paul McCartney, not to mention a host of terminally ill children.
7 Teri Hatcher’s ‘Burnt Toast and Other Philosophies of Life’
Teri Hatcher’s publication, which attempts to provide life lessons to her fans, is another annoying example of celebrities trying to make a quick buck. The advice, which includes stuff like permitting your children to spill macaroni, is less than useful. This leading lady should really stick to acting.
8 Victoria Beckham’s ‘Learning to Fly’
Learning to Fly is another poorly written autobiography by a 28 year old sharing her many life experiences like becoming a Spice Girl and marrying a footballer. Victoria Beckham was actually able to fill 517 pages with her lifeless anecdotes and lackluster experiences.
Audiences everywhere are suspicious and difficult to fool. We can tell when people are out to make a quick buck so celebrities attempting to do so with a poorly written book, beware. We are not easily fooled!
