This story first appeared in the Aug. 23 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

He titled his 2011 showbiz memoir When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead, and Jerry Weintraub clearly wasn't kidding.

As he revs up for the Emmys and Behind the Candelabra's 15 nominations, the renowned producer who launched John Denver and reinvented Elvis and Frank Sinatra already is hard at work on his second book, 76 and Still Relevant (his birthday is Sept. 26).

"It was so cathartic to write the first one, and I've got enough stories to tell for 90 years! There are stories I left out!" Weintraub tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Hard to believe? Turns out there will not be stories about the two women in his life: his wife, Jane, and girlfriend Susan Elkins

"I can't go there again!" he says. "And I'm not in the market for any new wives. Remember that guy John Wayne Bobbitt? That will be me!"
