The Sister Wives star and Kody Brown’s ex-wife was involved in a catfish debacle, where she thought she was falling in love with a man on the interwebs.

In reality it was Oklahoma whack job Jackie Overton, who has just announced plans to write a 200-page book about the relationship, aptly titled Almost Meri’ed.

According to Radar Online, Overton bills the tell-all as a "love story," filled with “photos, more text snippets and lots of things" that she’s never "told anyone about the affair."

The $6 book, which Overton says will be published before Christmas, "is funny in some parts: it’s very humbling" and promises a “huge twist and surprise ending.”

When they first met, Overton pretended to be a man named "Sam" and managed to make Meri fall for her.

There are recordings of Meri telling "Sam" that he was "kinder and sweeter" than Kody.

A source told In Touch that news of the book "could be really embarrassing for her."

Could be?

“They could have had phone sex!" the source said. “It’s so scary for her that the book is being written,”

“This is just humiliating for Meri to be so intimate with someone who’s really, for all intents and purposes, a very scary woman from Oklahoma.”

Meri admitted to the affair on a TLC special, citing her daughter leaving for college and estrangement from Kody as the reasons for seeking out a relationship.

“Meri just wants to move past this already, but she may be paying the price for her actions for a long time to come," the source added.

When the scandal unfolded, Meri released a statement to In Touch

“During an emotional and vulnerable time earlier this year, I began speaking with someone online who turned out not to be who they said they were.

“I never met this person and I regret being drawn into the situation, but I hope because of it I can help others who find themselves in similar circumstances.

"Throughout this whole ordeal, my family has supported and stood by me.I am grateful to them for their love and strength through this difficult time.”
