So is The Fonz.
After a brief career as an actress in the 80s and 90s, Harley Jane Kozak formed a very serious career as a novelist. In fact, of all of them, she seems to be the only one who considers herself more author than actor.
The three mentioned above deserve all their successes. They take being writers seriously. But when I read that two young reality stars had written a young adult dystopian novel, I cringed. I'm sure I missed it when the book launch was announced. I think we all did. These are the authors:

Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia has 160 customer reviews on Amazon. The vast majority of those reviewers give it one star. Yet one of the K-girl authors (can't keep any of the Kardashians straight) said, "The fans seem to love it. That’s why we did it, [the characters]' names are Lex and Livia. I think we wanted to make Lex more like me and Livia more like Kendall, and they kind of evolved into their own characters."
I would never discourage a young person from writing unless the only reason is because you're so great, you know your fans will want to read about fictional characters just like you. Oh, and if you do release a novel, try to look a little less like you're being forced to promote it.
But I'd say the reviews speak for themselves. Especially this jewel from Amazon reviewer Transgrade:
Gotta love a funny bad review (unless it's about your book).
