Bossip just exclusively received a copy of the forward of what will possibly be the most entertaining tell-all book of all damn time. Apparently, what started out as a clean autobiography of Bobby’s mishaps has spiraled out of control into an “un(authorized) biography” written by his good friend Derrick Handspike. It is rumored that Whitney is doing everything she can to destroy the book. Too late! The book came out yesterday and the crack has already hit the fan.
Let’s rewind. Here is how it all went down.
Bobby called me the morning the story broke in the media and he was baffled! He was confused! His voice was all low and he sounded wounded. I had never heard him like that before. First of all, he wanted to know how the story got leaked into the press. Second, he was dealing with how Whitney and their Bobbi Kris were feeling about yet another negative outburst of publicity drama about their family, and this time it was rightfully caused by him. I don’t think he was really ready for what had just happened!
Especially since him and Whitney had just started to heal and become friends after their divorce. We had discussed before how he was fully supportive of Whitney’s attempt to make a comeback in the music industry. (In my opinion) I don’t think he wanted the pessimistic reports from the book and tabloid gossip to overshadow the fact that Whitney was finally clean, sober, healthy and happy!
I spent days at a time over a year with Bobby and conducted several long hours of recorded interviews with him. I then took other resources in addition to spending quality time with his family members to come up with the manuscript for this book.
I had been known in the past to do handshake deals with former business partners, especially if they were friends or close associates of mine. This project was no different. Bobby and his family were close friends so we started working on the manuscript with only a handshake deal in place. We decided we would wait until we were about to release the project to bring the attorney’s in to complete a final agreement. After about a year, we finished the manuscript. He read and approved the final draft so we initiated talks with our attorneys about finalizing an agreement (as planned). Out of nowhere, quotes were leaked and the stories broke in various countries simultaneously. This is when the media frenzy began and things rapidly went left!
Which crooked-mouth fool and profusely sweating diva do you think they’ll get to play them in the Lifetime movie?
