That ex, Jim Townsend, a former drug kingpin, spoke exclusively to Radar Online and revealed that he is penning a book and has no problem telling everything … for the right price.
“I wrote two-thirds of the book. in prison,” Townsend said. he added that the plan is to complete the book and shop it to book publishers and whoever pays the most, get it.
Event though Townsend “had reservations” about sharing his story because of his kids, he apparently said the hell with it, moved ahead. If you’re wondering what Marjorie, 62, thinks … Towsend says he doesn’t give a rat’s butt what she thinks.
“I have no allegiance to Marjorie, she showed her hand,” Townsend said. “I’m going…tell my story. It don’t matter [if she knows about it]. I’m pouring my heart out. No one knows what happened but me and Marjorie.”
If you’re not aware of her story, the FBI and DEA began investigating Marjorie in the early ’90s while she was married to then drug lord Townsend, now 70.
Here’s more from RadarOnline:
The two agencies reportedly suspected Marjorie, 44, played a role in the drug ring, and authorities told Townsend that “his wife would be arrested, as the agents believed they had substantial evidence of her own illegal activities” if he didn’t cooperate.
Townsend was eventually indicted for attempting to buy 40 kilos of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison. He served 26 years and was released in January 2017 after being granted a pardon by then-President.
Marjorie, who was never charged with any crime, split from Townsend less than five years into his sentence.
In related news, it was yesterday that we reported that RadarOnline is claiming that the TV host is preparing for a “bitter divorce battle.” He supposedly removed Marjorie’s name from the deed to a house in Texas.
Well, after that news hit, Marjorie seemingly responded to the reports via Instagram (see below).

As you can see, Marjorie and Steve don’t seem to be sweating Townsend’s future tell-all and they don’t look like there are any hostilities between them.
