May 2nd has passed us by and still no book from Matt Baier
We’re sure you probably noticed, but Matt Baier still doesn’t have a book on the shelves in spite of what his anticipated release date was. We’re left wondering just what’s going on and when (and if) we’ll ever get to read what Baier describes as the dirty little details that MTV doesn’t want you to know about their hit series Teen Mom. Though, that’s not all Matt claims he wants to tell you… he also has some pretty strong opinions about Portwood’s co-star on the show, Farrah Abraham.
This is pretty disheartening, since readers were anticipating that he would divulge details about his strained relationship with his kids and his absence in their lives. Guess we can wait on that… and the book, since the release date was scheduled for May 2nd and we still haven’t laid eyes or hands on a copy of the dishy document. What could be the reason for this disappointing delay?
Book has been delayed
While this week was supposed to be momentous for Matt and Amber, it seems the excitement has fizzled. We reported earlier that Matt was soon going to be the published author of his own book, chronicling his time on Teen Mom and other interesting tidbits he claims MTV doesn’t want you to know.
Predictably, the network had issues with Matt fast tracking his books to the shelves, since they had never laid eyes on the copy. Baier’s book, You Have No F—king Idea: The Naked Truth About My Life., further ticked off MTV execs when chapters of the print were leaked online and contained some pretty scathing opinions and hidden truths about Amber’s archenemy Farrah Abraham and her family.
MTV was never silent about their contempt for Baier’s attempt at bypassing their red pens and demanded that Matt release the contents of the book to their lawyers. MTV’s attorneys won that battle, ordering the publisher Post Hill Press to slice some 15,000 words from the manuscript.
Apparently, Matt had penned some pretty inflammatory statements detailing Farrah’s rocky relationship with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Simon Saran. Including scathing accusations about Saran’s past, Matt revealed that Simon had gotten into some pretty hot water for assaulting an ex-girlfriend of his!
While it seems there’s been a pause in production, this didn’t stop a parody account for Baier’s fiancee Amber Portwood from keeping the promo going and revealing that the preface to Matt’s book had been leaked and could be found on Amazon.
The fraud user @AmberLPorkwood took to Twitter on the book’s alleged release date to announce the long awaited news:
“You can now read the foreword by amber for free…and the 1st& 2nd chapters…(Same as I posted but now on amazon)”
