Corey Clark’s “book” is now on sale.
Immediately after Primetime Live aired its infomercia, er, expose, former American Idol 2 finalist Corey Clark’s “book” went on sale. Book is in quotes because it’s not really a book, but an e-book, but not really an e-book, but something that requires a special downloaded reader. Apparently, “They Told Me the Truth, so… The Sex, Lies, and Paula-tics of One of America’s Idols” couldn’t find a print publisher. Since I’m not going to download something that insists it’s not spyware, feel free to let me know what sort of revelations are inside if you read it. The New York Post reports that it’s 132 pages and costs $9.95.

Elsewhere, from the “things that are much funnier with hindsight,” this Q&A with Corey from two years ago asks him who his favorite judge is. His answer: “Paula Abdul, because she and I have some type of comforting connection, I think.”
