One of reality television's most well-known and most unpredictable personalities--the former child actress and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills--speaks her mind and tells her truth in this blazingly honest memoir. "I've come to learn that holding onto secrets is like holding your breath. Finally, I feel strong enough to speak my truth. I am unafraid and unapologetic. I am ready." There have been many Hollywood tell-alls, but none like The Whole Truth. Kim Richards is a force of nature, a star who barreled into America's pop culture psyche with her larger-than-life presence on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But there is so much more to the Kim people know from television. The Whole Truth is the harrowing, all-too-real, and ultimately empowering story of a woman who has been through hell and back, endured, grew strong, and learned to become her own fiercest advocate. The soul-baring confession of a woman revealing what it was like to be treated like a show pony as a child star, as a disposable object as a wife, a whipping post as a sister, and as a tabloid commodity as a celebrity. But above all else, it is a triumphant tale of a determined woman who refused to be broken--a fierce, loving, and relatable human who is strong, flawed, and real. Illustrated with 25-35 photos, The Whole Truth is Kim Richards's truth as only she can tell it--unvarnished, painful, and authentic.

From the dawn of the studio system to the decade it all came crashing down, Hedda Hopper was one of the Queens of Hollywood. Although she made her name as a star of the silent screen, she found her calling as a gossip columnist, where she had the ear of the most powerful force in show business: the public. With a readership of 20,000,000 people, Hopper turned nobodies into stars, and brought stars to their knees. And in this sensational memoir, she tells all. In her career, Hopper crossed some of Hollywood’s biggest bold-faced names, from Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn to Charlie Chaplin and Joseph Cotten, and her feud with rival gossip columnist Louella Parsons became the stuff of legend. In The Whole Truth and Nothing But, we get Hedda’s side of the story—and what a story it is. Hedda Hopper is portrayed by Judy Davis in the Ryan Murphy TV series Feud about Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.
