Ron Jeremy vs. His Ghostwriter

It's a sad day when a porn star with literary aspirations doesn't get along with his ghostwriter, but that's exactly what is happening between Ron Jeremy, "best-selling author" of The Hardest (Working) Man in Show Business, and Eric Spitznagel, the actual writer of The Hardest (Working) Man in Show Business. In response to Jeremy's gripe at BEA that Spitznagel "got a lot of stuff wrong," Spitznagel fires back with a doozy of an e-mail on Reverse Cowgirl. An excerpt:


'Every page is just sex, sex, sex,' he yelled at me. 'Why does it all have to be about sex?'

'Well, you're a porn star, Ron," I reminded him. 'I'm pretty sure that's what people are expecting.'

'What about my work with PETA?' He suggested. 'Can't we include a chapter about that?'

'Unless you fucked a sheep, I don't think anybody cares.'

Honestly, we think this battle might be a little unfair.
