Sarah Palin bedding a budding NBA star, snorting coke and cheating on the First Dude?
The scandalous details are revealed in the highly-anticipated tell-all "The Rogue: Searching for The Real Sarah Palin," written by best-selling author Joe McGinniss.
Palin bedded future pro hoops player Glen Rice while he was playing at the University of Michigan, the National Enquirer reports about the McGinniss book.
The sharp-shooting Rice - who spent one season with the Knicks - was playing in the annual "Great Alaska Shootout" while Palin was a sports reporter with Anchorage television station KTUU, the Enquirer said.
Their one-night stand over Thanksgiving weekend 1987 reportedly occurred in the dorm room of Palin's kid sister at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Palin was described by a friend as the aggressor, with the pal reporting "she hauled his ass down," the Enquirer said.
Less than a year later, Palin was pregnant by husband Todd and the couple eloped.
The book also repeated allegations - denied in the past by Palin - that she had a six-month affair with her husband's business partner in the mid-'90s.
The dalliance put a chill on the Palin marriage, with Todd complaining to friends about the loss of intimacy in their relationship, the Enquirer reported.
McGinniss, the author of "Fatal Vision" and "The Selling of the President," rented the house next door to the Palins in Wasilla while researching the bombshell book.
His agent, David Larabell, declined to comment on the Enquirer excerpts.
"As this is an embargoed book I can't comment on the specificity of its contents," Larabell wrote in an e-mail.
"Also, I haven't seen the National Enquirer article. I don't know about this instance, but they often get these reports right."
The book also reports that Palin was once seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends. She also smoked pot with a professor while at Mat-Su College, the book says.
And it quotes a Palin family friend as saying that husband Todd Palin also snorted coke, describing him as "on the end of the straw plenty."
The Enquirer quoted a publishing source about the explosive stories contained in the 320-page book, due in stores next week.
There was no immediate response from the Palin camp.
He's also the one who railroaded Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald in his book (and TV mini-series) "Fatal Vision".
“The NY Daily News is used primarily to clean the NYC Subway Cars no self respecting human would ever read that trash sheet.....”
shhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa! They endorsed Turner.
Is Joe McGinniss that POS that moved in next door to the Palins?
How can you cheat on your HUSBAND if you haven’t married him yet....the story title and premise is false.
McGinniss is a scumbag, but the part about the sex with the 6' 8" basketball player (supposedly 9 months before she married Todd and while she was dating him) did not come solely from McGinniss. Glen Rice and another source are backing the story.
I guess the sources could be lying, but the point is that McGinniss isn't making it up out of whole cloth. Objectively speaking, there could be something to it.
WOW! The ultimate tri-fecta!
There’s a book by Janet Malcolm that outlines in full detail the bad journalist ethics of Joe McGinniss. I’m sure somebody here will remember its title.
Anybody who would rent a house next to his subject is a real sickie.
I can’t believe anybody here would get taken in by this stuff. Plus, it was all detailed in National Enquirer back in 2008 and never gained traction.
His book will be dead as a doornail in a month.
Didn’t she have an affair with Larry Sinclair? I think I heard they smoked pot too. Oh .... wait ..... that was Hussein, wasn’t it. It’s all so confusing.
Darn it, she is stealing my thunder.
Oh, you just ruined my screen! Gotta clean up the coffee.
I hope she is filing her response in court
"How many white folks did Zero do, in his wild oats days?"
Just sent $100 to SarahPac. Game On!
“Now THAT would impress Hunter S Thompson.”
Can you possibly doubt that Hunter S. would be wild for Sarah?
Her gunplay alone would charm him. ;^)
Did he get this info while peering into the bedroom of 7 year old Piper Palin..what a disgusting pervert this guy is. If I were the Palins and this guy came on my property I would have put a nice hole in his head with a shotgun
