It was hyped as “explosive” and a behind-the-scenes insight into the affair between disgraced senator John Edwards and Rielle Hunter.
There was predictably the media blitz, with Hunter telling her side of the story on various TV shows, to anyone that would listen.
But in the end, it appears no one wanted to hear or know about the scandalous affair that ended a marriage and saw Edwards political career in ruins.
According to the New York Post , Hunter’s tell-all “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter And Me” has sold a measly 6,000 copies.
Boookscan told the paper that the tome sold enough copies to make it onto the New York Times best-seller list but “not big enough to make the major houses sorry” for not choosing it.
Hunter was forced to release the book through Dallas-based boutique publisher BenBella Books after she was turned down from every major publishing house.
The 48-year-old was paid a small advance for the tell-all.
