One of the accusers of Leslie Moonves — who is also the former girlfriend of Sumner Redstone — is close to a deal with a major publisher for a tell-all memoir, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which cites an unnamed source.
“Christine Peters has a whopper of a story to tell,” THR reports. “And it appears she’s ready to do just that.”
The report notes that Peters, the producer of “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” is shopping a memoir titled “Hollywood Granola: My Life With Nuts and Flakes.”
“Peters, who also once headed up production for producer Robert Evans, wouldn’t confirm that she is working on a book. But she did speak to THR hypothetically,” the publication reports, quoting Peters saying: “If I were to write a memoir, it would be a cautionary tale [about] the hard work behind the scenes — not the red carpet fairy tale we’re often peddled.”
THR adds: “She may be wary because the last time she shopped a tell-all, she received a cease-and-desist letter from another Redstone ex-paramour, Manuela Herzer. Given that Peters, a mother of two, is the Moonves accuser with the most recent claim against the CBS CEO (in 2006), her story with a #MeToo spin would seem timely.”
Peters alleges in a Ronan Farrow story published July 27 by The New Yorker that she had a meeting with Moonves in his office about a CBS Films job, and “then he just put a hand up my skirt.”
