Saving Sanders: Pilar Sanders Untold StoryThe faith-filled fitness lover has remained pretty quiet since her highly publicized divorce with Deion Sanders. Pilar plans to release a tell-all book about her marriage to the former NFL player.

The book, Saving Sanders: Pilar Sanders Untold Story, is no surprise for Pilar’s fans. Shortly after the couple’s split, Pilar stated that she would be airing the truth about the couple’s alleged abusive relationship in a memoir.

Pilar’s friend and publicist Kali Bowyers pens the revealing book and provides a unique point-of-view on the couple’s relationship.

Although the book is not officially available yet, portions of it have been leaked online. In one excerpt, Bowyer writes about how Pilar felt when she found out Deion was taking her children away from her:

“I’ll never forget the night my phone rang at around 3:30 am. I had answered dead out of my sleep to hear just uncontrollable sobbing from a heartbroken Pilar, who could only mutter the words, ‘Kal, he took my babies.’ As I sat there and cried with her, she was completely devastated and blown away. I do not think this was something she ever imagined in a million years could happen to her. It had been a rough few months – doing my best to combat every attack Deion made. Watching my friend die inside, I refused to sit back at let this happen. I promised Pilar that I would fight for her.”

And how Deion allegedly tried to kill her following an infamous fight at the couple’s mansion:

“The headline making argument – a joke is more like it. What did not make the headlines is how Deion attempted to kill Pilar by picking up a statue in a fit of rage and hitting her over the head. Thank God her childhood best friend Dee was present in the house to witness the entire fight. After Dee jumped in to try to help Pilar, Deion responded by punching her in the face.”

A release date for the book has not been set.

    I used to watch their reality show and thought they had such a beautiful family. I was always in awe of how gorgeous Pilar was, and I liked the dynamic between them as a couple. It’s a shame all of that drama happend in their marriage and that nasty divorce went down the way it did. It just goes to show you that never really know what’s going on.

    Is it me or does it seem like there’s a trend of reality shows ruining marriages? How is it that a couple could be married for YEARS, they do a reality show, and then not too long afterwards, they’re divorced? Think about it: Hulk Hogan and his wife, Kelsey and Camille Grammar, Lisa Wu and Ed Hartwell, NeNe and Greg (even though they’re back together now), Porsha and Kordell Stewart, Pilar and Deion, etc etc etc. C’mon… it can’t just be a coincidence.

    “Bambi”, Lewis, Romanowski, Mad Dog White, Brown, DiMaggio, Jordan, Hayes, Prime Time, Mantle, Lilly, Irvin, we create and idolize these monsters…and then are taken aback when these human pit bulls behave exactly as they have been revered but off the field;

    and just like the four-legged pit bulls, none of us in our right minds would have any one of them in our living rooms;

    the only possible exceptions might be the world champion women’s soccer teams, the Olympic champion women’s gymnast teams, the miracle hockey team and the all-female Americas Cup crew;

    sigh;

    Some of these comments are startling, you’re not buying a man is abusive because he is dating another beautiful woman? Seriously?! hell OJ had no trouble picking up another white woman ‘right after his trial’ even though most people felt he killed his wife.

    Abusers are some of the slickest people you will ever meet, they are con artist by nature…all predators are, that is how they survive. They will beat you black and blue and have you believe that next time you should have dinner ready by 6pm, not 6:01, 6:06, 6:00.

    Lastly, who says abusers can’t get full custody? While the courts are generally biased against men, it is not as uncommon as you think for an abuser, especially one who can provide a better lifestyle to win full custody. Here’s a link to an article from last year.
