Huma Abedin Reportedly Seeks a $2 Million Tell-All Book Deal
Huma Abedin, the wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner and longtime Hillary Clinton aide, is looking to tell all—for $2 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Unnamed sources for THR state that Abedin “has been meeting with top literary agents during the past few weeks to discuss a book that is envisioned as a reflection of how her personal and professional lives collided during the campaign.”
But Ester Newberg, a literary agent at ICM Partners, believes Aberdin many have a tough sell on her hands.
“This will be an interesting sale to see who wants to know what [Weiner] said to her each time he was caught,” he told the THR. “If she reveals a lot, it turns your stomach. If she doesn’t, she puts the publisher in a bad place.”
Newberg also acknowledged that his publishing house probably doesn’t stand a chance with the proposed tall-all book.
“No one would have approached me with this book because they know I’m not a Hillary fan,” he said. “I’m an Obama fan.”
Apparently, the literary elite in Manhattan is divided when it comes to the Democratic Party and liberal politics in general.
Abedin has remained silent when it comes to her husband’s now-infamous sexing scandals. Besides making an appearance in the 2016 documentary Weiner, she has given no interviews and has made no statements about the incidents.
Abedin and Weiner first met in 2001, but only started seriously dating in 2008. They married two years later in a ceremony officiated by former President Bill Clinton and have one child together, 5-year-old son Jordan.
Weiner’s first sexting scandal broke in 2011 after he inadvertently shared an image (which was intended as a private message) on Twitter. The incident destroyed his congressional career. Two years later, revelations of ongoing sexually themed messages with another woman ruined his bid for New York City mayor.
