Remember the thicc wife guy? He’s writing a book
He cannot be stopped
The thicc wife guy, as you will recall, was an extreme dumbass who posted about how he loved his "curvy wife." He was roasted into oblivion last summer for uploading these deeply patronizing and unnerving words to Instagram:
"Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room."
It would now appear that the thicc wife guy – real name Robbie Tripp – cannot be stopped, because he is writing a book about how to "deal with haters and overcome negativity while chasing your dreams."
A recent post revealed he submitted a proposal to his agent for a book that he believes he was "born to write."
Hilariously, before he became known as the thicc wife guy, he had his previous book deal fall through. "I was subsequently rejected by 12 different publishers, all for different reasons," he says.
"A spark of an idea turned into a flame and now here I am, five months later, feeling GLAD that my first idea didn’t work out so that this one could take center stage," Tripp adds, improbably.
In case you wanted to know, he's still praising his wife for being thicc.
'Everyone celebrates your body positivity, but I get the privilege of experiencing the fullness of just how soft and sensual and stunning you truly are'
'I'm absolutely infatuated with this soft, stunning goddess'
I think it's worth mentioning that in a lot of his posts, Tripp refers to his wife's "doll face." Not "dollface," like some sort of singing 1950s Broadway guy, but "doll face."
In the 22 posts he's made on Instagram since October 1st 2017, he's referred to his wife's "doll face" seven times. Is that weird? I think it's weird.
'My wife is a stunning size 10/12 and I can hardly keep my hands off her curvy figure'
This one isn't about having a thicc wife but Christ alive read it anyway:
'As soon as I sat down to get this picture, one of the employees rolled me his basketball and I instinctively started spinning it on my finger. I love the electricity of New York City'
'A thick slice of paradise'
