You’ve watched Deion and Pilar Sanders’s tumultuous marriage play out in the headlines and pretty soon you’ll be able to cozy up on your favorite sofa, sip tea out of your favorite mug and read Pilar’s firsthand account of how it all went down. The estranged wife of retired NFL star Deion Sanders recently revealed to Hip Hollywood that she is planning to write a tell-all book titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story, which is said to be about her troubled and “abusive” years spent with Deion.
“I want to be a mentor to other women who have been abused, by sharing my story, my struggles and letting them in, it will not only help heal myself but others experiencing the same trials and struggles as well,” the fitness guru told Hip Hollywood of her forthcoming literary project.
“There are thousands of women fighting for their rights, their children and their own identity out there. We as women and mothers need to ban together to show support for injustice. I will continue my fight as long as I walk this earth, and with Jesus at my side all will prevail,” she continued.
We hear the book will be co-written by her publicist and friend, Kali Bowyer, who seems to have been around and stuck with her through much of the controversy. Bowyer describes the book as the “true, uncut story about the abuse Pilar endured, how she built an empire with him, and how he cheated on her.”
Deion and Pilar’s marriage woes have been playing out in public for a few years now. The latest bit to make headlines was Pilar losing sole custody of the couple’s daughter, which was followed up with the alleged ex-girlfriend of Gospel star Fred Hammond coming forward, expressing that she had witnessed Bishop T.D. Jakes coach Deion on how to hide money in preparation of the estranged couple’s forthcoming divorce and prenuptial proceedings.
