Amanda Knox Gets A Book Deal

amanda knox gets a book deal

We pretty much assumed this would happen sooner or later.

To recap - Amanda Knox and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito served four years in an Italian prison after being sentenced for the murder of Amanda's roommate Meredith Kercher.

Last we heard about this case back in December, an Italian appeals court had made the disturbing announcement that Amanda and Raffaele's murder convictions had been overturned because there was never "any reliable evidence" to link the two to the murder.

Now, a spokeswoman for HarperCollins publishing house has announced that Amanda has sold her memoir to them. Details are scarce thus far, but a statement regarding the book deal is set to be released tomorrow.

We're hearing that the book deal is likely somewhere in the one-million-dollar-range, which is no shocker AT ALL. This book will sell.

What do U think? Will U read Amanda's memoir when it gets released???

    Blood money..



  2. 2

    Her memoir? Druggin' and fuckin' gets the beyotch $4 million? Won't be buying any more books from that publisher.



  3. 3

    The likelihood of her telling the truth is slim to none. What is the point of reading it? The person who matters in all this is Meredith, but there is no-one that will ever tell her story.

    Yes I will read it. I think she is telling the truth.



  5. 5

    Yuck, a very distasteful and classless thing to do.



  6. 6

    Plus, I don't get all the big deal about her looks. Really, she's not even pretty. She looks like a dog.



  7. 7

    She should thank her lucky stars that she escaped the hell hole prison that she was in! It's a question mark whether or not she is completely innocent, she should lay low and stay quiet!



  8. 8

    She should thank her lucky stars that the police and prosecutors f'ed the case up so badly. At the very least, she's capitalizing off of the events surrounding a brutal murder of her supposed "friend". If she had any class, she'd keep her head down and disappear, but it's no surprise she's ready to cash in.

    Why is she being made out to be some form of a celebrity? I feel sorry for Meredith's family. Having to continuously relive difficult years !

    RIP Meredith Kercher

    Why all the ahte for Amana? Her incarceration was a travesty of justice from the begining. The DND evidence was a joke (of course her DNA was in the apartment SHE LIVED THERE!!) but it was all they had and so the procescution 'made' it work. Luckily wiser methods were used in retesting and no correlation was found on the murder weapon or scene. Maybe she lived a lifestyle some here don't agree with, but she wass INNOCENT of muder.

    Clearly the people who have posted on this article, with a few exceptions, are as ignorant as who ever wrote this piece for Perez's site. There was no evidence against Amanda Knox other than tampered with and unreliable DNA. That's why the appeals court overturned her conviction. Meridith's killer, Rudy Guede, was convicted of a lesser crime even though he was the only one responsible. The Italian police and justice department are the only people to blame in this situation for going after a girl that had nothing to do with the crime and failing to adequately prosecute the really killer.

    Educate yourselves idiots.

    Can't believe this woman is out. She may claim 'innocence', but her statements and behaviour suggests otherwise. What a message to send to the world. Kill a person, get off free and earn millions.
