Meri Brown’s catfish lover is cashing in, and turning a lemon of an affair into $6 cups of lemonade. Jackie Overton continues her denial of the Sister Wives star’s account of what went down during their six month connection, and is now selling “Sam’s” penned sob story to the masses. “Sam Cooper” has whipped out his labor of love, “Almost Meri’ed,” in record time, and just in time for the Christmas rush. Meri Christmas! “Sam” describes the read, as “he” sells his tale.
“There are stories, photos, more text snippets, and a lot of things that I have never shared with anyone about my affair. Some great insight into what lead me to falling in love with a married woman and how it felt ending it with such public attention.”
“Sam” asserts that the project is NOT a tell-all, but will have readers on the edge of their seats. He even promises a surprise ending.
“I’m not interested in spilling deep dark secrets and I do know a few. This is a love story. It’s my love story and my experiences. It is funny in some parts, it’s very humbling. It’s a great story. I think a lot of people will be able to connect with it and maybe learn somethings they never thought about love.”
While the title alone invites giggles from most viewers who have followed the compelling story, the fact that Overton is collecting via PayPal, is not so funny. “Sam” believes that $6 is a fair price for the download, which he translates into $1 for each month that the couple shared their passionate affair. Overton is an alleged pro-scammer, so any purchaser who chooses to cough up $6 while surrendering any personal information, is indeed a risk taker.
Meri Brown contends that she was victimized by a female con, posing as a man, who drew a vulnerable woman into a strictly virtual relationship. She denies any past desire or plan to leave the Brown family, in order to pursue a future with “Sam.” “Sam Cooper” denies her allegation, and claims to be a 42-year-old business tycoon, who fell hard for the polygamist reality star. “Sam” also asserts that a passionate physical relationship with Brown occurred. “He” also claims that Meri was planning to leave the Browns, and that they were going to pursue having children together. “Sam” is believed to be a woman named Jackie Overton, who was allegedly seeking to extort from the Sister Wives machine, with a carefully collected array of scandalous photos and voicemails.
There is little doubt that “Sam” will keep singing his emotional ballad of a catfish scorned. How many of his fans are actual people? How many will be willing to pay, while potentially exposing personal info to an accused online con?
Will Catfish Jackie be warbling all the way to the bank, or will the marketed saga be a bust?
