RHOBH: Kim Richards book delayed until 2021 because of Kyle Richards?

Kim Richards was set to release her book in April, but it has now been pushed back into February 2021 and people are wondering what caused the delay.

Kim Richards’ book was set to be released on April 28, 2020, but according to Amazon, it has now been pushed back to February 2, 2021. The Whole Truth: The Reality of It All was going to be a tell-all about Kim’s time as a child actor and her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  It was definitely going to talk about her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton, too, which is probably why it was delayed.

Kyle told PEOPLE earlier this month that she didn’t know much about the book.  Kyle went on to say, “We’re in a good place, so hopefully, we’re going to stay there.”  The book description also mentioned that Kim was “a whipping post as a sister,” which surely did not go over well.

The information page for the book was listed on the HaperCollins site but has been taken down as of today. The page can still be viewed in the cached version on Google and lists the original release date of April 28.

HarperCollins referred to the book as a “blazingly honest memoir,” which could be part of the reason it isn’t being released on time.  Back in 2019, Kim was sued by her ghostwriter, Allison Kinglsey Baker, for $10,000 according to Page Six.

Allison told the court, “My client refuses to pay me despite our signed contract and a job well done.”  This would potentially indicate that the book was completed back in 2019.  Perhaps the publisher, Dey Street Books, realized they could have a mess on their hands if they don’t fully vet all of the information in the book.

As of late, Kyle, Kim, and Kathy seemed to all be in a good place after a tumultuous couple of years.  Hopefully, this is just a bump in the road and we get to read all the juicy details of Kim’s life as she intended.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be back later this year on Bravo.
