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."

It's time for them to all go away and never show their faces again. This happened 20 years ago.

Child Molester you are lucky you still are walking the streets. I hope NO ONE buys your book. Crawl back under the rock you came from. You ruined two women's lives. F U. Sorry this guy really gets me going!

Slimeball ran out of money. Who in the WORLD would care what this POS thinks? If he actually writes a word (look for ghost writer, this guy has the language skills of a 3 year old), I hope the "publisher" don't go for an "advance of sales". Money down the drain.

Greasy borderline child molester.

How does this provide closure for his ex-wife? Isn't he reopening the book for Mary to have to relive this nightmare again?

Didn't his 15 minutes expire like decades ago? The least he could do is have to decency to stay hidden under his rock.

She's baaaack    

Looks like all you good TMZ folks already told the story. I doubt if Joey could add anything. Well, there is one thing he could add and that is just by the looks of him and by his smarmy character anyone with any experience can just tell that the reason he goes after the young stuff is because he's probably the equivalent of a 12 year old boy in the sack. L-O-S-E-R.

Mary Jo is "angry"? Of course she is, you POS! Your underage lover shot her in the face! Your 15 minutes was up a long time ago. If you wanted to respect the families, you would let this rest.
