Miranda Kerrs Ghost

Thanks to the lovely ilikecara at Delphi for the heads up on this.

Ever wondered how such a busy Supermodel, like Miranda Kerr could write a book? Miranda said herself, she works 6 days a week and is in a different country every week (or something) so how on earth would she find the time to put pen to paper? According to this post on the Vogue Australia forum, Miranda hired a ghost writer to write her epic masterpiece “Treasure Yourself”. In one way this would make sense as Miranda’s interviews usually come across as dull and monotone so a ghost writer would be a good idea, on the other hand, why would it take 3 years for this bum fluff book to be released if somone else was writing it? Until more information comes out, it’s hard to say if this is true or not but if Miranda was as busy as she claimed to be, it would be hard to write a book. Also the poster on the forum has been a member for almost 10 years so they seem legit but whether they are fat and toothless is another matter.

Thoughts?

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised at all! If thicko Katie Price uses one for her books, then why not thicko Miranda, she sounds so stupid that her book would too if she didn’t use one, so I would bet she has, we all know she can’t string a sentence together at the best of times.

  2. Well, I know it isn’t a crime, and a lot of authors admit to having one, but of course miranda would never do that because she is so clever and can write a book all by herself with the help of white ball of light Frankie correcting her terrible spelling mistakes. BTW I could be wrong on this, but didn’t Therese once say she was editing Miranda’s book?

    • Someone had pointed out errors in her booking FB, she put blame on the publishers for not catching it.

      • Shame on HER for not employing a proof reader. Her/her ghost writers spelling mistakes have nothing to do with the publishers. Why does she always pass the buck.

  3. phantom writer definitely. ive not read her book but ive red bits of what people say is in it. no way could a model such as Miranda write a book, even if its for her busy time away. Most famous people have a ghost write, why not she?

    • I think someone, I believe on Delphi, found one of the quotes she uses in a poem actually belonged to someone else, she just changed one word twice to make it her own.

  4. Plagiarism is Miranduh Kerr’s middle name. She’ll steal a quote from anybody. The blogger Frockwriter called her out on it way back in 2008. Here’s my post on Delphi from Oct. 10 regarding how Miranduh likes to use other’s people’s sayings:

    ————————————————————————————–

    351.1971 in reply to 351.1970
    This Frockwriter has a long love/hate relationship with the dingho. She recently brought up the DJ’s debacle, being slightly critical of the dingho’s pulling out of her DJ’s duties but showing up to walk with Balenciaga.

    Remember a couple of weeks ago and the little incident of MK using quotes without acknowledging the real author. It was a Churchill quote. Well, way back in 2008 Frockwriter called her on it. Here’s part of the blog post Frockwriter wrote on the subject way back when:

    “Kerr has been providing fans with a few headsups about her various activities – and likes to close each post with what she describes as some of her favourite quotes.

    These include, on June 11, Rudyard Kipling’s:

    “People say we are all seeking the meaning of life…. I think what we are really seeking is the experience of really being alive”.

    And on July 7, from peace activist Marianne Williamson:
    “Our fear is not that we are inadequate, our fear is that we are more powerful than beyond belief, it is our light not our darkness that frightens us”.

    The origins of some of Kerr’s other signoff quotes are however not quite so clear cut.

    On May 8, Kerr left her readers with the unattributed gem:

    “It is nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice”.

    Upon some digging, frockwriter estimates the quote is the work of the late investment analyst and philanthropist John Templeton.

    Also unattributed is this quote from October 8:

    “It is only with our hearts and souls not our eyes that we can see our way clearly”.

    Frockwriter would put money on this being a Kerr-ific interpretation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famous line from Le Petit Prince:

    “It is only with the heart that one may see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye”.

    And not forgetting, on May 14, the lovely, but sadly similarly unattributed:

    “In order to see a rainbow, at first a little rain must fall”.

    Frockwriter looked high and low for the origins of the latter gem – assuming for a nanosecond that it may in fact have been a genuine Kerr-ism.

    Upon further investigation however, we do believe it may be a version of the following widely-circulated quote:

    “If you want the rainbow sometimes you gotta put up with the rain”

    Which is believed to hail from the erudite teachings of Dolly Parton.”

    I’m guessing that a lot of these quotes will end up in Treasure Yourself, unattributed of course.

    So, between the stolen quotes, the ghost writer and other people’s drawings, just what is left for Miranduh to credit as her own?

    • Thanks so much for posting these. Im sure there are many more quotes out there she has taken but may have changed slightly. The Dolly Parton “lyric” is blatent in my opinion. She reminds me of David Brent with all these quotes.

      I also don’t believe she got all the women in her life to draw a flower on her book cover because all the flowers are well drawn and look like they have been drawn the same way. Unless there’s a part of the book I’ve not seen that contain these etchings.

      • I am not buying the book or even looking at it but did she give credit to the original authors of the quotes?

  5. If it’s true she had a ghost-writer, then it would make sense for her to have a picture of herself reading it I suppose. By extension, if she has read it or not, she is still responsible for it’s content as the published author! Spelling errors and all!

  6. Hi girls!

    I’m Hungarian and I’m a fan of Orly but not one of this dingo.I don’t speak English very well so I apologize for my mistakes.When I first saw this creature I didn’t know what is was.Is it an alien or a locust?And I realized that this is a dingowhore who had stolen the wit of Orly.
    Yes I’m very fat and jelaous of course 😉
    In Hungarian the word ‘randa’ means ugly, this fits to our lovely dingo!

    Bye

    • Hi Tyria!

      It’s okay with your spelling mistakes – Nobody is Perfect (exept maybe our Dingo 😉 ).

      Interesting to know, which literal sense a word in other languages have. Yes, it fit’s definitely. *LOL* 🙂 In German we have not such a meaning of ‘Randa’.

      And you have right. Today I have watch Pictures of Orly from the last 12 months and he get older at last 2 Years since married her. 😦

      Bye

  7. Another Hungarian! Let’s have a jellus club meeting, provided we find a place we can squeeze our fat arses into.
    Yes, I really enjoy calling her randa myself. 😀 Kinda like an inside joke.

  8. Thanx for your answer 🙂 Yes, before his marriage Orly had shining regard, he smiled always and was very nice to everyone, but now he looks like a 40 years old tired man, who does everything with a bad grace.Is it conceivable that the child in her belly isn’t his child?And he knows it?Or just he guess it?I’m so curious to that.

  9. I remember when her book first turned up at amazon, the page headline was
    “Treasure Yourself – written by Miranda Kerr, with Louise L. Hay”.
    – the latter name in way smaller print.
    This is the way how co-authors or ghostwriters of books by celebrities are acknowledged, for instance when a celebrity writes his/her biography.
    If you look now at the Amazon page – http://www.amazon.com/Treasure-Yourself-Miranda-Kerr/dp/1401924352/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1280150154&sr=8-2
    – Louise Hay is gone from the title, and dropped down to ‘product description’ alongside with two other names. More ghostwriters?

    Am I mistaken, or isn’t Louise Hay owner/co-owner of Hay House Inc?

    • Louise L. Hay is a Metaphysical Lecturer and Teacher, and the bestselling author of 27 books, including “You Can Heal Your Life” and “Empowering Women”. Her works have been translated into 25 different languages in 33 countries throughout the world. Since beginning her career as a Science of Mind Minister in 1981, she has assisted thousands of people in discovering and using the full potential of their own creative powers for personal growth and self-healing. Louise is the owner and founder of Hay House, Inc.

      She also contributes to the KORA blog.

      • Thanks Rik.
        My mind boggles. Maybe then this is book #28 by Louise Hay.
        I can imagine that Louise Hay has (re-)written this book in order to get some sense (?or whatever) into the paw scribblings by the Dingho, and to not let her publishing house look like a complete idiot house with this vanity self-affirmation book.

        “She also contributes to the KORA blog” – now why am I not astonished?
        So that’s where MK has the self-affirmational quotes from.

        I haven’t read the book – are the quotes in there as plagiarized as the quotes at MK’s FB?

      • I don’t know what’s in the book. I don’t plan on buying it anytime soon… maybe when its on the .50¢ rack.

  10. I knew she didn’t write that!
    I’m sorry, but as pretty as she is she’s not the brightest crayon in the box and she’s super busy. Ain’t no way in hell she wrote a book. I knew it had to be ghost writers. Didn’t belive her or Snookie who claimed to write a book in three months. Give me a break!

    Sorry, mini-rant done. That’s another point about her that never quite settled. Then again, I almost believed it because from what I hear the book is mostly pictures of the family and positive affirmations she’s pulled off those bumper stickers you find in hippie dippie shops all over the world.
