Literary Tabloid


I could care less about reading about Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or Britney Spears. Jennifer, Brad, Angelina? I don't give a crap. But the secret, juicy lives of writers? Baby, I'm there!
It was recently revealed that Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert Olen Butler was dumped by his wife. She left him for...media mogul Ted Turner.
"Elizabeth is Butler's wife of 12 years, Elizabeth Dewberry, 44, an author in her own right, who might be attracted to Turner, 68, because the media mogul resembles the grandfather who molested her as a child, Butler writes in the shocking e-mail."
Read about it:

THose emails, at the end of the day, will just be our undoing.

I wish we had more time to wait...

What a jerk (Butler) is. The guy is seriously, seriously nuts. (Is Elizabeth Dewberry a babe?)

Well, he did intend his email, I read somewhere, to go only to friends, and said Elizabeth let him tell the story. But still, it was delicious fun to read! Very wacky. Somebody should write a book!

whoah, I think Butler went a little too far. How could you say something like that to someone you've been with for 12 years ?

And what about the children ?

Lets watch this unfold ..
