The New York Post reported last week that Elvis Mitchell is pitching an "unusual" book on Richard Pryor. In today's Page Six, Pryor says he's got his own book in the works.
"I don't know [bleep] about Mitchell, but if he's writing a book about me, I figured I'd write one about him," Pryor joked. "After I finish the one I'm writing about myself."
Commenting on The Post's report on Friday that Mitchell's book could fetch $500,000, Pryor quipped, "If he can get half a million dollars for writing all about me, when the mother[bleeper] has never even met me, imagine how much I'm gonna get for writing all about me, when I am me!"
Pryor's book will be co-written with Jennifer Lee Pryor, his sixth and eighth wife.
