Is Johnny Mac Money Hungry Afterall?

John McEnroe, the annoucer/tennis player some love to hate, has found a new way to make some bucks since the Venus/Serena debacle didn't pan out. Johnny boy has written a tell-all book about his marriage to ex-wife Tatum O'Neill, detailing her and his drug problems, etc.

What purpose does this serve and what are the kids going to think?

I think this is a bad move. His game show failed. His attempt at a match with the Sisters failed. Hmm. This too shall fail. It's pretty lame to lay your business all out in front of the whole world. Not that the whole world will be interested. I'd bet that not many people would buy it (I sure won't). And MacEnroe will end up seeing just how much he matters these days.

Poor Tatum. She's still paying for that mistake she made way back then.

Yes, I learned about this. Tell-all books are just lame to begin with. Especially if you're the "friend" of a very famous deceased person, *cough*JFKJr.*cough* Johnny, this is nobody's business, if you were high when you had sex and what Tatum thinks of Farrah Fawcett!! I swear on a stack of bibles, ppssh, I don't give a flying f*** about your personal life! LOL!

Don't do it John! A tell all book will embarrass his kids. Man, he's hanging on to the spotlight when he shouldn't be. John is a fine commentator. But his ego needs to be deflated.

Mrs_Guga, I thought you were from South America? What's going on?

Ugh will her ever go away? It's bad enough he's going to be annoucing at RG, and dissing every female player except Jennifer. Now a book, who cares. The man is so arrogant and such a hypocrite.

I read excerpts and it just reeked of self-absorption. I laughed at John claiming he turned Tatum on to the party scene (circa Studio 54 era). Please. You hadn't won Wimby yet, John. Duh. It was Tatum that introduced your Lawn Guyland ass to Michael Jackson, Liz Taylor, etc.

total A-hole move! This jerk is already controversial enough. Since his tennis glory days are behind him, he is attempting and failing at all his post tennis gigs.(i must admit, he was good at Davis Cup) Many people don't buy the new and improved J-Mac. I still say he is a major A-hole!
