Ex-American Idol Writes a Book?
Last week’s loser, Megan Joy, wants to tell you her side of the story
Recently axed American Idol, Megan Joy, isn’t sitting on her laurels waiting for fame to come to her. Last week, one day after being voted off the hit show, the Sandy, Utah native and her boyfriend immediately began making cold calls to book agents around the country looking for a deal. What would the book be about? Her hideous experience on AI, of course!
A source in publishing tells me, “Megan’s boyfriend has been making calls, trying to see if he can generate interest in a book where Megan would expose the dark side of AI. He claims it was just a filthy cesspool and that producers ask the contestants to do some less than stellar things for the good of the show. The boyfriend claims to have proof in the form of emails. The emails are said to contain production staff asking her to go so far as to cheat on her boyfriend.”
Is the industry interested? “Megan is young, 23, and a single mother. Add that to decent proof in the emails, then there may be a story and big it would make for a good book. It’s all about the little details and concrete evidence.”
I would rather hear Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell discuss the backstage “cesspool”.
