Traci Nobles, the 35-year-old former cheerleading coach from Athens, Georgia who exchanged explicit text messages with former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), has now written a book about her online affair with the congressman.
The book, I Friended You is set to be published this week. "If anyone would have told me a year ago what would have been in store for me just one year later, I would have never imagined in my wildest dreams," Nobles writes in the book, according to an exclusive excerpt published in the Daily Mail.
Weiner resigned in June after he mistakenly tweeted a photo of his underwear-clad genitalia from his public Twitter account. He initially claimed his account had been hacked, but after more photos and revelations emerged, Weiner admitted to having online relationships with six women.
Nobles exchanged messages with Weiner for nine months. After the scandal broke, she was outed by her roommate, who sent a screenshot of a private Facebook conversation between Nobles and Weiner to the Las Vegas Sun.
But Nobles says that not all of their conversations were sexual. In an excerpt published in the Daily Mail, Weiner complains about his his wife's devout Muslim parents, who he describes as "a bit backwards thinking."
"A lot has to do with religion," Weiner, who is Jewish, wrote to Nobles. "Lots of restrictions and how I've never been accepted by them."
"Touchy is a good word for this. It's been touchy and worse from the beginning."
Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, revealed during the Weinergate scandal that she is pregnant.
In September, Republican Bob Turner won a special election to replace Weiner in New York's 9th congressional district.
