Joey Buttafuoco

Don't Shoot Me ...

But I'm Writing a Tell-All

9/3/2012 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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."

My first thought was that there is no way this stupid man can string a sentence together in order to author a book. My second thought is maybe I'll beat him to the story: He was a walking dick. He was putting it to a totally messed up teenage girl. She decided to kill his wife. Joey discovered that there is no such thing as the bottom of the barrel; you can always go further down as long as you are still alive to live your pathetic life. End of story.

By the way, Joey, in your literary prowess I believe you misspoke using the word "respected" (families). I think you meant RESPECTIVE, because where you are concerned there is no such thing as respect. Idiot.

Oh Joey, Joey, you can't write a book, you have to know how to read first. Joey you are the biggest douche ever and with all of the crap you pulled in the past 25 years everyone knows it. Who in their right mind would waste a penny on a book that this idiot would put out?

I don't know of anyone who cares anymore. Joey and Amy are both real losers. Mary was a fool. Too bad for their kids.
