Joey Buttafuoco

Don't Shoot Me ...

But I'm Writing a Tell-All

EXCLUSIVE

0902_Buttafuoco_fisher_gettyJoey Buttafuoco is breaking his 20-YEAR SILENCE about his affair with Amy Fisher by writing a tell-all book, TMZ has learned.

Buttafuoco tells TMZ the reason he's coming forward after so many years is due to a recent brush with death. He believes it's time to "clean the slate" and finally move on with his life -- aptly titling the memoir, "Closure."

Joey tells us, "Everyone thinks they know [the story] but they really don't."

Joey says the book his ex-wife Mary Jo Buttafuoco wrote back in 2009 is just an "angry account of an ex-wife who pieced together her own vision of why things happened. [She] had no knowledge of my life away from home."

Joey says he thinks Amy in particular will have a problem with him telling the whole story, but tells TMZ, "It's time for all of us to move on. My book is closure for everyone and our respected families. It's time."

So in other words, Joey needs the cash. Wasn't he doing that celebrity boxing thing? I guess that gig dried up.

An "angry account of an ex-wife". I'd be pretty angry too if my spouse got me shot in the head. If I wasn't dead, that is.

Amy Fisher now looks like she's the one who got shot in the face. Mary Jo looks good! Poetic justice?

I remember Amy Fisher giving an interview .. she said Joey Buttafucco is an attention whore and everyone should ignore him. It looks like she's right. Hey Joey .. it's been YEARS AND YEARS .. no one cares. Closure was a long long long time ago. You missed the boat ...

All of commenting know the deal. It's gonna be some sensationalized book. People will read it. He will make more money. It will never stop until WE as consumers stop trying to live vicariously through s*** like this guy.
