Jason Collins made sports history when he came out as gay in April, prompting an outpouring of support from pretty much everyone but Fox News. Collins, who was once engaged to former WNBA star Carolyn Moos, only revealed his sexual orientation to his former fiancée days before his story was published.

The news prompted Moos to go on a media tour of her own, in which she spoke to TMZ, CNN and other networks of her surprise and support for the star. The personal trainer now has plans to capitalize on her ex's story with a memoir about his coming out experience. From her website:

Carolyn will be writing a book as she reflects on her recent life events about her former fiancé. She welcomes submitted questions from the public about what they would like to hear more on given topics that were discuss at the surface level in the interviews. Send your questions to questions@carolynmoos.com and Carolyn will review all of them as she begins to write.

We can think of at least one person who might be interested in reading buying her book.
