High-school dropouts Kendall and Kylie Jenner aren’t even interested in the book they wrote.
Journalists invited to a book signing for “Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia,” were appalled Thursday by the entitled reality TV stars’ total indifference on promoting their foray into fiction.
Aspiring “authors” Kendall, 18, and Kylie, 16, arrived for their book signing at Barnes & Noble at the Grove in Los Angeles, where they posed with the novel for three minutes, scowled and refused to answer questions, then sat down for their obligatory book signing with all the enthusiasm of teenagers in a summer school algebra class.
Photographers stood in awe as security staffers surrounded the pair just minutes later, declaring “the signing is over.” Barnes & Noble organizers plead in vain for the girls to fulfill their duties, but no dice.
“The whole event was a joke,” said one attendee.
“These girls are really getting ideas above their standing in life,” that insider groused. “This type of diva behavior will come back to bite them in the ass. For years they have used the media and made millions promoting themselves in media, and then they take this ridiculous step?”
E! online had written about the event with a splashy headline reading “Kendall and Kylie Jenner Stun at Book Signing in Los Angeles-See the Pic!” But the positive coverage is, of course, due to the Kardashians being a hit for the network.

The Daily News’ book review by Sherryl Connelly said it “exalts plastic surgery and birth control.”
“It makes sense. After all, it’s how the Kardashians have survived into the 21st century with their faces and fortune intact,” the review said.
On Amazon, the book received a one out of four stars rating.
Prior to the signing, the girls tweeted, “It starts at 7 p.m., so get over here quick!”
They weren’t kidding.
“It is unheard of for celebrities to hold a photo call and then actually not participate in that event,” our insider fumed. “They looked foolish and it reflected very badly on their brand.”
