Dollhouse

It's no surprise that our tastes in entertainment is the same as that of a 12-year-old girl. Disney shows/movies, tween stars, the CW, any novel "loosely" based on the lives of the celebrities that wrote them. If it doesn't take talent, we're in. And we won't apologize for it.

But while some of our favorite books include Snooki's "A Shore Thing," Lauren Conrad's "L.A. Candy," and Nicole Richie's "The Truth About Diamonds," there's a new book hitting shelves soon that we're not exactly sure we're going to add to our "Sexy Trash Book Club" list. Fine, it'll be on the book club list. But we're not sure we'll like it.


Amazon.com summarizes the book as such:

Dollhouse is an addictively entertaining novel about an exciting, high-profile, complicated family with a huge heart and a lot of love. Written by superstars Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, Dollhouse is a delicious glimpse that goes behind the glitter of fame into the hearts of three sisters fiercely devoted to one another and the family they love. Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe combined their truly scandalous imaginations with the secrets they know about life in the fast lane to give you a book like nothing you’ve ever read before!
Nothing is more important to the Rameros than family. Just ask Kamille, Kassidy, and Kyle—three beautiful, loving, and deeply loyal sisters who are the heart and soul of their family. Their mother has remarried and their new stepfather, a world-famous all-star baseball player, has come complete with two stepsiblings. Life in L.A. is pretty typical for this newly blended clan.
Until the day everything changes.
Overnight, one of the Ramero sisters has become famous—magazine-cover, fashion-icon, headline-making famous! Trailed by paparazzi, invited to every red carpet event, she has set a new standard for Hollywood royalty.
You’d think that all the glitz and the glamour would make life a breeze. But as the sisters painfully discover, being a celebrity in L.A.’s gilded dollhouse isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Suddenly their problems are much bigger than sharing clothes and discussing crushes. Who knew that having a famous sister would bring up so many issues: jealousy, backstabbing friends, fix-ups, plastic surgery, and paparazzi run-ins, to name just a few. As the sisters deal with their new lives, complete with a televised wedding, crazy nightclub parties, and forbidden step-sibling attraction, there’s a huge secret that threatens to break even their tightest family bonds.
Does it sound juicy? Yes. Does it sound exactly like what we've been watching on television for the past 4 years? Yes.


With Conrad's books, the main character, Jane, is obviously based on the author while her enemy is based on Heidi Montag. Other characters are molded from numerous people she knows, but they aren't as cut and paste as Jane and Madison.

 
Snooki's book is the opposite situation. The two main characters are exact replicas of herself and JWoww, but instead of putting them on a reality show with other guidos, she set them up as roommates during a Jersey summer, looking for jobs and love.

Kourt, we feel the same way about your book... :(
But with Dollhouse, it's exact replicas of themselves living the exact same plot lines as their lives. We'll read it (and most likely like it), but what's the point, really? We already own Keeping Up With The Kardashians on DVD.... and we'll bet money that in this case, the book is not better than the movie.
