reality star books not selling with exceptions

We see books by reality stars everywhere…but are we actually buying them???

According to THR, we're definitely buying Bethenny Frankel's first two books, which in total sold 480,000 copies!

Despite Bethenny's success, we're NOT buying books by NeNe Leakes, Jill Zarin, and Danielle Staub, who all sold fewer than 10,000 copies! Yikes!

Teresa Giudice's cookbook has fared better though, with 100,000 copies solid…but then we've got Snooki who only sold 35,000 copies and The Situation who sold 15,000 copies….

Ah well! Even if these reality-star-turned-authors lose shelf space at Barnes and Noble, they'll always have a place at Rutgers University! Ha!

Have U bought any books by reality stars? If so, what did U think of them?

    And let's not forget Red Carpet Suicide which sold four copies and True Bloggywood Stories which sold two.

    It's a sad reality but books don't sell as well as they used to, pretty much across the board. Figures like 15,000 (if just national) are actually above average for 'new' authors, even those with previous press coverage/fame.

    Nene is basically unwatchable on Celebrity Apprentice. She is mean, nasty and has a very grating voice. It was so rude how she called Latoya Jackson "Casper" to her face.

    How many books have you sold, i bet they all outsold you.

    First of all Nene is illiterate. Jill Zarin sounds like your typical Jewish New Yorker (I am one so i can say it) and Danielle Staub is just a low life . So who the hell would read their crap. Bethenny was a businesswoman first before she became a reality star.

    Reality shows are replacing soap operas and yet Susan Lucci has a best seller out right now seems like more actual people are interested in soaps than people thought.

    Lauren Conrads books were good and they sold well!

    I like Bethenny Frankel and her show. I don't quite understand the need for all the crying she does yet. I don't feel she's fake. I think she actually has some serious issues from her past to deal with. I wish her the best. I think her husband is jealous of her. He's too possessive/demanding/bossy. I don't see this marriage lasting. He's a jackass.

    I did get the crying over that stupid 40th birthday party her husband threw for her though. After she told him she didn't want to make a big deal out of it. What a creep/momma's boy/pathetic excuse for a man. You could do so much better Bethenny.
