The following books are real. They exist. They were actually written by people who thought they were good ideas.
And these people were celebrities!
Which is what makes this collection all the more ridiculous and noteworthy.
Scroll down for a look at books that various stars thought were good ideas to write at the time, but which have simply given us many reasons to laugh hilariously at them instead...
As if making a celebrity sex tape was not bad enough, Farrah thought it would be a good idea to write a book about the making of it. Um, no. Farrah, please get a real job.
If you can't write, you could follow Kim Kardashian's tactic and just release a selfie book. The porn-star-turned-entrepreneur got a lot of people talking about the book, but it made money.
Campbell sent her ideas for the book to a ghostwriter, and we are very sure the ghostwriter burst out laughing when he/she heard them. Five models fight it out for the contract of retiring supermodel Swan. What the heck?
Charlie Sheen is one of those celebrities who is just all over the place. He was fired from Two and a Half Men for his erratic behavior ... even though he was making a lot of money. Before that, Charlie released a poetry book that got some positive comments from John Stamos.
Lauren Conrad is a reality TV star and fashion guru. She decided to make the step to writing fiction with a book loosely based on her life. Despite giving it her all, it was a trainwreck.
Macaulay decided to try and make his way back into the spotlight with a book. The book included random drawings, thoughts and a whole lot of gibberish.
James Franco is an esteemed actor and director, but his novel was filled with poems. There were random statements before poems appeared. It was clunky and just downright terrible.
This novel was a complete dud. Fabio went back in time and found a girlfriend. He even helped Vikings with a modern diet. No, we're not even kidding. We would like to know who the heck gave the project the green light.
Tyra Banks has been on America's Next Top Model forever, so it was only a matter of time before she released her first novel about the show. It was essentially about a young woman going through a fantasy version of the hit reality series.
Ever wanted to find out how to creep on the ladies in the club? The Situation made a guide on some tips for men who would like to be like him. No, we're not kidding. Desperate? Yes. Expected? Absolutely.
Hillary Duff is a good actress and singer, but her novel felt like she was trying to fit every YA trope into one book. It resulted in a half-baked plot that was all over the place. Who cares about beautiful senator's daughter who finds herself in a love triangle? Oh, and there were vampires.
Anderson decided to turn her life into a novelization. Yes, it was an uninteresting novel which was as sensational as Baywatch. It's just a shame the writing was atrocious. Pamela Anderson should stick to her other ventures.
Nicole Richie thought it would be a good idea to weigh in on her feud with Paris Hilton. It resulted in an incoherent mess that would make a good Lifetime movie.
Snooki was one of the funnier personalities on Jersey Shore, and her novel proved she was not the brightest member of the cast. Snooki was public about not being a big reader so we can forgive her for her terrible book.
Duchovny is a well-educated celebrity, but his novel was complete and utter trash. Does anyone care about talking animals? It sounds like something a child would come up with, and nobody was impressed.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
The Kardashians sure try to do as much as they can with their time in the spotlight, and the above book was certainly one of the most bizarre. Considering the family is constantly under scrutiny for stealing ideas, this book seemed like a rehash of Divergent.
O.J. Simpson Book Cover
O.J. thought it would be a good idea to hire a ghostwriter to write his take on how he would have murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. It caused outrage and the book was pulled prior to publication. It would have been a waste of paper.
Arnold is probably looking back at this book wishing he could terminate it. What's unbelievable is why it made it print. It spanned 656 pages and was complete rubbish.
Paris Hilton has always been ditzy but taking part in a book with advice for people struggling to make ends meet is a bit much. What would she know about trying to make ends meet? It would have been more interesting if she talked about One Night In Paris. Now, she would know a lot about porn.
