RHOA Fans Are Shocked By The Cover Of Mike Hill's Book -- Is He Sending The Wrong Message?
Mike Hill revealed on a recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta that he was coming out with a book. The read that has been titled 'Open Book' finally has a cover -- and it may not be what you'd expect.
Mike did a cover reveal to his followers which include some RHOA fans. The first thing you see on the front of the memoir is a shirtless Mike.
He captioned the Instagram photo: '**Please read the caption to understand** Tonight, with the help of my beautiful fiancé,@cynthiabailey10 I unveiled the cover of my soon to be released book “Open Mike”. There’s meaning to why I wanted “this” cover. I’m stripped down because I’m unveiling my truths. I want to symbolize vulnerability and express to everyone that I no longer have anything to hide, after so many years of doing just that. My head is slightly bowed because I’m not proud of many of the things I’ve done but I’m also coming out of the shadows, no longer running away from the traumas and pains that’s caused me to hurt others, including myself. The back is to show how far I’ve come and an expression of how thankful I have someone who has my back and along with God has me covered. My body itself signifies I’ve come along way but I still have work to do!In broadcasting one of the first rules is to be careful what you say around an “Open Mic”. I’ve decided to go against that rule in hopes of helping others, even if it’s at my detriment. I pray it does.'
Although the sports commentator explained why he was literally stripped down, there were some who thought that it was inappropriate.
One commentator said: 'To be honest to me the cover looks like that of a perfume ad or something that needs sex to sell. I would have preferred a picture of you wearing a t-shirt or suit because you're an interesting, educated and professional man who doesn't need to strip down. But it's your decision and I'd really like to listen to open Mike as an audiobook, if you think of doing one!'
Another added: 'Blessed beyond measure! Wrong cover... too sexy.. folks won’t take u serious!!! You & ur fiancé are gorgeous but WRONG MESSAGE! Go back in n prayer on that! Love u guys!!!! I’m a fan!!'
While this follower pointed out: 'And you wanted everyone to see how your body looks. And that's okay.'
