Recently US News & World Report reported she had a book proposal, aimed at conservative publishers. Now in a follow-up, Donald Trump’s Miss USA pageant says her book proposal is actually one of the reasons that she was fired. But Prejean’s attorney notes she was “given preliminary approval” to write a book, had “a draft amendment to her contract for that purpose at the time that she was terminated,” and has not actually contracted to write a book yet anyway.
Another proposal on the market is from former John Edwards’ campaign aide Andrew Young (represented by David McCormick), offering a tell-all about his role in trying to cover-up Edwards’ affair and at least implying, according to the account in The Daily Beast, that Rielle Hunter’s child was fathered by Edwards. (Edwards has denied paternity, and Hunter declined to have a paternity test performed.) In a classic assessment, the story notes: “So far, there have been no takers for Young’s book, which one editor estimates could bring up to $1 million.” Or not.
