Did Billy Joel's Ex-Wife Stop His Book From Getting Published??

Filed under: Music MinuteBookz

Looks that way.

Billy Joel's new memoir The Book of Joel was mysteriously stopped from hitting the presses and insiders think that Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee was to blame.

The book allegedly depicted her as a spoiled woman who lived the rock star life and was hoping to find fame herself. When Lee got a copy of the manuscript, she was NOT happy and fought to stop the book from getting published.

Another source, however, got an advanced copy as well and says that Joel actually paints Lee in a good light and even includes passages in which Lee speaks in her own voice.

Fred Schruers, who co-wrote the book with Joel declined to comment on the matter, but his spokeswoman did say that she "had nothing to do with the book's cancellation."

Hmm…

At the same time, Katie also has a book that just recently came out, named Groundswell, which is a fiction novel about a young woman recently divorced from a superstar actor.

Sounds like she may have something to do with the delay of Joel's novel, but who knows.

What do U think? Did Katie stop Billy's memoir from happening?

Sarah Palin Gets SLAMMED In Tell-All Book Manuscript BY Former Aide

sarah palin gets slammed in tell all book

Guess Sarah should be nicer to the people who work for her!

The manuscript for a tell-all book about Sarah Palin by her former aide Frank Bailey has been leaked, and it has way-less-than-flattering things to say about the former Alaska Governor.

Here are some highlights of the book:

-Starts with Palin saying "I hate this damn job" before her resignation as governor in July 09

-Calls Palin's campaign "vindictive, malicious, and catty"

-Says Palin "broke election law by teaming up with the Republican Governors Association during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign"

More from Bailey's book:

“We set our sights and went after opponents in coordinated attacks, utilizing what we called ‘Fox News surrogates,’ friendly blogs, ghost-written op-eds, media opinion polls (that we often rigged), letters to editors, and carefully edited speeches."

Bailey on Sarah's betrayal of an anti-abortion group in Alaska:

“When Sarah turned on Jim Minnery and his/their cause, for the sole purposes of making money and causing him embarrassment, I saw how blind I’d become. Finally, Sarah Louise Palin’s petty ways and butchered priorities would set me free."

Here's what a spokeswoman for Sarah, Pam Pryor Palin, had to say about the allegations in the book:

“Doubt she will respond to this kind of untruth."

Hmm…untruth, eh? We must say, we're def inclined to believe Bailey on this one.

What do U think? Team Bailey or Team Palin?
