Someone pointed out in our comment section that Michael is looking for a publisher for a book of Russian recipes that will come out of his restaurant's kitchen and which will be headed up by Marina, the reality show star. According to Marina's press release last week, you would have thought offers were pouring in from publishers, here is a quote: "She received a great deal of interest in getting her own reality show and writing a cookbook of her favorite Russian recipes from Rasputin. The cookbook will feature contemporary Russian cuisine from the restaurant."
Where did all the interest for this cookbook go? Well I think we all know it was never there to begin with. Marina and Michael are trying desperately to milk there 15 minutes of fame and turn it into money, but the problem is they are their own worst enemies thanks to the show and how they were portrayed. Michael came across as a man without backbone who takes orders from his screw of a wife. A wife who insulted his mother many times on national television, without a word out of him. Marina came across as a loud, obnoxious, self-centered, materialistic, rude, shrilled voiced, controlling woman.
Anyone who knows anything about publishing a book knows you have to have the interest of a literary agent and something to show them that will sell. If you can do that, the agent will try to get interest from publishers and strike a deal. What do Michael and Marina have to bring to the table? Recipes from their restaurant and Marina's picture for the cover? How much do you think that will be worth? Just reading it make me laugh!
