Demi Moore Writing Tell-All Book: Ashton Kutcher Marriage, Drug Addiction, More
The years may have been kind to Demi Moore, but with the announcement that she's currently writing a tell-all book, it doesn't look as though she'll be returning the favor.
The actress, who split from Ashton Kutcher in November 2011 after seven years of marriage, has reportedly reached a deal worth $2 million with publisher HarperCollins to write a book. The book will be edited by Jennifer Barth, and backstopped by publisher Jonathan Burnham. According to sources they are still negotiating a delivery date and making a deal with a co-writer.
Reports are mixed on what Moore will focus on in the book. Some say that it is not a trip down memory lane for the actress who got her start as a member of the Brat Pack. According some unnamed sources she met with publishers to personally pitch the book, which isn't a memoir, but rather a specific story about her complex relationship with her mother, and how it impacted her life and career.
Another source told The Daily Star that Moore, left depressed and angry after Kutcher cheated on her, she decided to reap her revenge on him by signing a book contract. An insider claims, "We already had a great book outline from her in which she said she would write about overcoming her alcohol and cocaine addictions. Now she's going to blow the lid on her six-year marriage to Ashton, so what would have been a best-selling book is going to become a blockbuster!"
According to Now! Magazine the 49-year-old is planning to pen a kiss and tell book, revealing all the secrets of her seven year marriage with Ashton. "She's planning to spill all the juicy details on her addictions, her meltdown and her marriages," said a source to the magazine.
Moore and Kutcher separated last year following claims that Kutcher had cheated on his wife. Moore checked herself into a rehab facility soon after for reported problems with substance abuse and an eating disorder.
She's since had to endure the heartache of watching her ex-husband move onto a new romance with his former co-star and longtime friend Mila Kunis, but over the last six months has emerged back into the public eye, showing off a healthier look. Meanwhile Kutcher has been trying (poorly) to keep his new relationship with "That 70's Show" co-star Kunis under the table.
Moore is apparently exhilarated to be writing the book, though her grown-up daughters are decidedly less excited about the prospect: "Demi's daughters hate the idea - they don't want their lives laid bare to whole world," said a source close the family.
Moore has already battled with her relationship with her three girls, with Rumer, Scout and Tallulah allegedly filing a restraining order against their mother earlier this year following a string of fights.
With all the dramatic material at hand, we're expecting quite the read. What do you think we should expect to see? Better yet, what do you want to see?
