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."

Who the "F" is going to read it? I mean really. What type of people would find this the least bit interesting? I might read it if: I WAS STUCK ON A DESERT ISLAND AND THE ONLY THING THERE WAS THE BOOK AND A PLACE TO PEE. Really, seriously? WHO READS SUCH CRAP AND WHY WOULD YOU?

Here are the facts:

1. You are yesterday's news whose 15 minutes is long expired.

2. You are an ignorant buffoon and it is unlikely that you are able to string two readable sentences together let alone an entire book (who would publish such crap?.

3. You are a proven liar, pedophile, adulterer, deadbeat dad and all around pig so your credibility factor is zero.

4. Since no one considers you a worthwhile charity, I know few people who would buy a book to float your boat. Go away, you gross atrocity. No one is interested in your stale lies.

20 years after? who cares? A least I do not care at all. He destroyed the life of a young woman his wife and his family and because he has this near death experience according to him he wants to be able to put his ex wife through more shame. Nice guy that he has become. some people draw closer to God he wants to write a tell all book. All I can hope is that no one publishes it.
