Matt Baier is stripping down to his birthday suit to tell the naked truth about his life. The “Teen Mom OG” star and fiancé of Amber Portwood revealed the title and cover of his upcoming book after announcing on Monday’s episode of the MTV show that he was working on a new project.
After repeatedly dodging tabloid rumors about his life, Matt got a call from blogger Matthew Richards on episode 13. Richards suggested Matt tackle the rumors head on by writing a book detailing the ups and downs of his life. At first, Matt was hesitant but Amber thought it was a good idea.
Shortly after “Teen Mom OG” aired, Matt posted a Twitter photo revealing the cover of the book. In the picture, the 44-year-old father of five is wearing sunglasses as he stands completely naked with a trash bag covering his man parts. It was also revealed that the title of the book will be “You Have No F**king Idea: The Naked Truth About My Life,” and will be co-written by Richards. Amber will write the forward in the book. Matt’s book is expected to be released May 2, 2017, but fans can pre-order it on Amazon now.
“We decided that a book was a smart idea, as it would be a definitive way to finally respond to everything, once and for all,” Matt said in a statement to Richards’ blog Real Mr. Housewife. “It would also be all in my words, with no one able to ‘pick and choose’ which parts of what I’m saying they want to put in a story as some publications typically do.”
Matt promised that “nothing is off the table” when it comes to his book and he will tackle every story people have read about him in the media. “I will also be sharing background details of my life, my struggles with addiction, and the true story of how I met Amber, which has also been twisted and lied about in the press,” the statement read. “I look forward to sharing my story once and for all and hopefully showing you all that you really have no idea who I am. I’m truly not the guy I’ve been painted to be and can’t wait to share my story with you.”
Richards posted on his blog that Matt was very “candid” during the writing process and he thinks people will be “shocked” by the book.
On a recent episode of “Teen Mom OG,” Amber and Matt sat down with Dr. Drew Pinsky for an interview to try and clear up some of the rumors about them. Among the topics discussed was speculation Amber had a miscarriage due to past drug issues and Matt’s son blasting him in the media.
“Teen Mom OG” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
