Wow. This is so wrong, we can barely even believe it's true!
Literary agent Sharlene Martin has announced that
Michael Lohan the jewelery store in Lindsay Lohan's criminal case is trying to get a book deal out of the whole ordeal.
Here's what she had to say about the rep who approached her regarding the book deal:
"He said he is the publicist for the jewelry store, and that they want to do a book about the Lindsay Lohan necklace story."
"I told him, ‘I'm sorry, I don’t see it. This is a moment, not a book.’”
And more from Martin:
"The truth be told…if I were interested I would have asked questions. I represent legitimate clients. You know instantly when someone calls you whether it’s a moment, a minute or whether it has legs as a book. This is a fleeting moment. I don’t see how there is enough to put between the pages of a book.”
Here's what a source from Team Lindsay had to say about it:
"It's absolutely stunning and shocking that they are trying to get a book deal. It's truly appalling."
We completely agree! They don't care about the story AT ALL!
As we said before when the jewelry story announced that they'd be putting the allegedly stolen necklace up for auction, they're press-hungry fiends.
We're glad that Sharlene Martin didn't give them a second thought. This situation does NOT need to be turned into a book.
A movie though…now THAT could be inneresting. Can we get the Ocean's Eleven crew on the phone? Ha!
Do U think it's wrong for the jeweler to try and get a book deal out of Lindsay's case? Would U read that book?
