Despite her lack of recent work, Kim has hope on the horizon. She is set to release her memoir The Whole Truth: The Reality of It All later this year. Kim reportedly received a $300,000 advance for the tell-all.

The book has experienced a bunch of delays due to the pandemic but is finally being published. At one point, the memoir was reportedly scrapped altogether.
