You've seen them on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, luring the hapless Scott Disick away from his baby daddy duties in favor of racing expensive cars.

You've seen them on The Real Housewives of Miami, shmoozing with the plastic faces of Miami's most notorious women.

Or maybe you haven't seen them at all, because you have better things to do than keep up with the stars of trashy reality TV shows.

If you're in the latter group, too bad for you, because the Ducotes of Miami are determined to make you notice them. The husband and wife team of Chapman and M.K. Ducote are on a mission to get famous, and in a little over a week, they're kicking off the next phase of attack: a book launch.

Chapman Ducote won his small amount of fame, literally, by successfully competing in American Le Mans races. He's also a University of Miami graduate who now heads a credit card processing company based in Miami Beach. M.K. Ducote, his wife, also works at the family business. But the ins and outs of processing credit card payments don't exactly make for the sexiest basis of a book. So instead, M.K. has written a novel titled Naked Paddock, promising "an insider's look into the fast-paced world of Formula 1 racing."

According to a press release, Naked Paddock is the first in a trilogy of novels to come from Mrs. Ducote. They're all based on real-life events, and offer a look into "a world of money, sex, ego, intrigue and ruthless competition," with "a lifelike cast of colorful characters, as quirky and flawed as they are entertaining."

Are we sure they're not describing the next season of Real Housewives of Miami?

Ducote will be signing Naked Paddock at the Books & Books in Bal Harbour (where else, daaahling?) July 19 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. But it's not the last you'll hear from the Ducotes. Chapman's scheduled to appear on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and his friendship with Disick may have even inspired a TV deal of his own. "He is also in talks for a spinoff with Scott to further explore their 'bromance' and Scott's growing interest in the world of race car driving," the release explains.

Another Kardashian reality show? Just what Miami -- and the world -- needs.
