Former teen idol David Cassidy is telling all — in the U.K. The heartthrob who crooned for “The Partridge Family” in the 1970s has written a no-holds-barred memoir that will be published in Great Britain next week – but there’s no U.S publisher. “Could It Be Forever” tells of Cassidy’s drug use, wild sex, his infatuation with Meredith Baxter, a romp with Barbara the Butter Queen who liked to cover her sex partners with butter, and an encounter with 1950s screen star Gina Lollobrigida. “I’ve always been very comfortable with my sexuality and my brothers call me ‘Donk’ — as in Donkey. People have talked about me being ‘blessed’ in my physique,” Cassidy writes in the book. “The first time [I met Gina Lollobrigida] she looked me up and down and said: ‘I hear you’re a monster. I want to meet the monster.’ Well, I decided that if I had it, there wasn’t any point in just keeping it in the holster all the time.” A spokeswoman for Cassidy says “Could It Be Forever” is being published in the U.K. because the 57-year-old singer is still almost as popular there as he was in his heyday. Discussions are ongoing with a U.S. publisher.

I thought the rumor was that he was one and not that he has one. I hope he goes on Howard Stern and is called on it like another little teen star…Screech.
