Last week, Chris Cuomo got bad news. HarperCollins Publishers dropped him like a hot potato.
Apparently, the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against the younger Cuomo led the publishers to their decision. They didn’t want a scandal of Andrew Cuomo proportions on their hands.
According to the Daily Caller:
A representative from Custom House, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, told the Associated Press that it would not release Cuomo’s book “Deep Denial.” The spokesperson did not offer any additional comment, and HarperCollins did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
Cuomo was fired from CNN on Saturday over his involvement in allegedly covering up his brother former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual assault case. The former anchor was initially suspended “indefinitely” pending the results of an internal review of his conduct after New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office released evidence on the matter.
Cuomo was later accused of sexual misconduct by an unnamed woman preceding his firing. The woman’s attorney, Debra Katz, said that her client’s allegations were the reason Cuomo was fired.
“Last night, CNN acted promptly on my client’s complaint and fired Mr. Cuomo,” Katz said. “My client came forward at this time because she felt in sharing her story and related documentation, she could help protect other women.”
Cuomo denied the allegations through a spokesperson.
“Deep Denial” was scheduled to be released for fall 2022. According to its Amazon listing, the book is “a provocative analysis of the harsh truths that the pandemic and Trump years have exposed about America – about our strength and our character – and a roadmap of the work needed to make our ideals match reality.”
Isn’t it ironic that after such a long career in the public eye, Cuomo still needed to drop the Trump name to get a book deal in the first place? I can’t wait to see how many more doors are slammed in Cuomo’s face.
Speaking of door’s slammed, I’m pretty sure Andrew Cuomo is stomping mad right now, as his latest book is likely one of his biggest regrets.

Ouch! I bet that stings more than a big ole slap in Cuomo’s face.
Karma at its BEST!
I think karma doesn’t get much better than that. Cuomo spent many years at the top. And he did whatever he wanted. Groped women, killed old people, lied to the public… you name it, Cuomo did it. But we aren’t always so lucky as to see the karma hit the fan.
Apparently, the State of New York was a bit miffed to learn Cuomo’s book was written and edited on government time. And there’s the little matter of 11 women who ratted Cuomo out for his compulsive sexual harassment.

Great news…now, what about the 18M he is still holding in campaign cash? That needs to be returned as well.
