Playing the Field: Mike Vick’s mistress writing book
It’s billed as a book about secrets — “secrets that will shock the world.”
A woman named Bella Escritor (we can’t confirm if that’s the woman’s name, a pen name or a company name) is writing a tell-all book about her relationship with Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.
Bella claims the book is already written in its entirety and all the content is owned by the writer, meaning there are no legal obstacles to overcome. She has created a Kickstarter account to raise funds in an attempt to publish the book, which details a 10-year affair. It includes love letters, photographs and text messages.
“The secrets are personal and revealing them to the public will be a major step that will include a moral compass for the writer,” writes Bella on Kickstarter.
The project has five backers to date — $160 toward a $22,000 goal — with 30 days remaining. Bidding ends on July 20 at 5:30 p.m.
OK, now that we have presented this information to the general public, we need to make a public service announcement.
We have long been supporters of what happens in an athlete’s bedroom stays in his bedroom in this space.
Yes, we will present ridiculous photos of Rob Gronkowski partying with co-eds on Spring Break. Yes, we will poke fun at JR Smith’s devotion to Tahiry Booty. At the end of the day, it ends there. We are not here to judge — negatively or positively — an athlete’s personal life. We’ll present it, you form an opinion.
And we mean that. Hence, we are not touching the Aaron Hernandez story in this space.
