(Newser) – Married Victoria's Secret CEO Sharen Turney will soon have her alleged two-year affair with a Florida luxury real estate broker detailed for the world to read. The aforementioned broker, Cliff Donenfeld, is writing a tell-all in which he says he "opened a door" for Turney sexually, and she planned to leave her husband of more than two decades for him—and even perhaps adopt a baby with him—before their affair ended in 2010. Sources tell Page Six that Turney is doing all she can to stop Donenfeld, but he's determined to see the book—which he calls a memoir—released.

After news of their affair broke, "Cliff noticed black SUVs outside his house," says one source. "He was then contacted by a Victoria’s Secret private eye who wanted to meet with him and their lawyer." Adds another, "They’ve been trying to shut Cliff down and convince him not to include her in his book. But he’s standing up for himself. His book has many people and many chapters. This is one chapter. He contributed to Victoria’s Secret." Indeed Donenfeld, 51, claims that Turney, 56, asked him for advice on the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show and other matters, the Daily Mail reports. They were initially friends post-split, but Donenfeld decided to reveal the affair after Turney refused to give him a professional reference for a fashion job. (Read more Sharen Turney stories.)
