I guess the best recourse for a jilted baby’s mama or ex-girlfriend of an athlete is either a reality show or writing a book. Liza Morales, Lamar Odom’s ex, choose the latter.
Liza Morales, who split with Odom in 2008, tells us she’s talking to literary agents about repping a roman à clef she’s written that depicts what it’s really like to be in a relationship with a star athlete.
“It shows the lifestyle from the inside,” says Morales, who turns 32 Monday. “Since our society is obsessed with celebrity, the book gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the real reality.”
Yes, I had to Google roman à clef. It means a fictional novel based on real life people or events. The athlete in Liza’s novel is a football player. I hope she researched the differences because there are several. But I guess that’s where dramatic license takes over right?
Oh by the way, the producers of Basketball Wives asked Liza to join an L.A. spinoff of the show (for Gloria I suppose) but she declined. I’m happy about that. As for her book, we’ll see.
