Former teen idol David Cassidy is releasing a new memoir chronicling his drug use and wild sex romps in the 1970s. The Partridge Family star reveals details about his infatuation with Family Ties star MEREDITH BAXTER, a steamy encounter with 1950s screen siren Gina Lollobrigida and a romp with a woman named BARBARA THE BUTTER QUEEN who was known for covering her sex partners with butter. COULD IT BE FOREVER will be published in the UK next week (begs05MAR07) and Cassidy is currently looking for a US publisher. According to MSNBC's The Scoop, the 57-year-old says in the book, 'I've always been very comfortable with my sexuality and my brothers call me DONK, as in DONKEY. "People have talked about me being 'blessed' in my physique. The first time (I met Gina Lollobrigida) she looked me up and down and said, 'I hear you're a monster. I want to meet the monster.' "Well, I decided that if I had it, there wasn't any point in just keeping it in the holster all the time.'"
