Michael Ausiello, the founding editor of TVLine, has announced details of his highly anticipated memoir, Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies (Atria, September 12, 2017).
The book chronicles his 13-year relationship with husband Kit Cowan, who died of cancer.
Ausiello addressed the fact that his memoir would be published by S&S, which is publishing a book by the original hater who gonna hate, Milo Yiannopoulous:
Even though Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy maintained to me and other concerned S&S authors in a Jan. 23 letter that Yiannopoulos’ book will not include hate speech, I have struggled to reconcile doing business with a company that provides the likes of him with a platform. But, since my lawyers have advised me that my options for getting out of my contract at this stage in the process range from non-existent to nil (and, believe me, I tested their assertion), reconcile it I must.
His solution? He's donating a portion of his advance to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which he calls:
... an incredible organization that has long been on the front lines of combating the kind of divisiveness and intolerance that Yiannopoulos perpetuates.
Best of all? He is making the donation in Yiannopoulos's name.
I can't wait to read it, because Ausiello just read Yiannopoulos for filth.
