Huma Abedin, the estranged wife of former Congressman Anthony Weiner, is said to be seeking $2 million for a tell-all book, which is expected to give readers insight into her husband’s sexting scandals and her role in Hillary Clinton’s presidential run.

The longtime Clinton adviser has reportedly been meeting with literary agents in recent weeks to discuss a potential book deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 40-year-old has quite the story to tell, considering how both her personal and professional lives have made headlines over the last few years.

In fact, it was just days before Clinton's presidential election showdown with Donald Trump that the FBI announced that they came across emails relating to Clinton’s private server as they were investigating Weiner's alleged sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner's sexting also forced him to resign as the representative for New York's 9th District in 2011, foiled his attempted comeback run for mayor of New York in 2013, and surfaced again with another reported instance last year.

Abedin announced plans to separate from Weiner in August 2016. The couple has one child together.

“She’s more interesting than her husband. We know who he is. She’s the ongoing mystery,” Julian Zelizer, presidential historian at Princeton University, told The Hollywood Reporter. “But she’ll have to put herself out there. That’s what the publisher will be looking for.”

One literary agent is not a supporter of the book, though.

“No one would have approached me with this book because they know I’m not a Hillary fan. I’m an Obama fan,” said ICM Partners’ Esther Newberg. “This will be an interesting sale to see who wants to know what [Weiner] said to her each time he was caught. If she reveals a lot, it turns your stomach. If she doesn’t, she puts the publisher in a bad place.”

Abedin has reportedly received Clinton’s blessing to publish the book.
