David Oldfield has remained tight-lipped on his split from wife Lisa so far, after the couple called time on their 18-year marriage back in February.
But the One Nation co-founder, 61, looks set to spill some family secrets in his new memoir, Before You Judge Me, which appears to have riled his 44-year-old estranged wife.
The former Real Housewife of Sydney mocked the release of the tome on Instagram over the weekend, as David tells Daily Mail Australia nothing is off limits in the book.

‘It’s very personal, very honest, and in places it is very raw,’ David said last week, confirming the book will discuss his tumultuous personal life.
He added that his account of things will be ‘completely honest’ yet ‘self-deprecating’ as he covers his new ‘responsibilities as a single dad’ and parenting in general.
David said the book will also touch upon ‘the ugliness of politics’, with a chapter on Tony Abbott and ‘very descriptive’ chapters on ‘the real’ Pauline Hanson.
Additionally, it will also look back at his five separate reality TV outings, career as a broadcaster at 2UE and 2GB and his ‘experiences in life and death situations’.
‘It’s very personal [and] very honest about everything,’ David told Daily Mail Australia last week of memoir Before You Judge Me, following the end of his 18-year marriage to Lisa in February

After the book, which is available now from publishers New Holland, was mailed out to reporters for review last week, Lisa took a subtle swipe at her ex-husband’s feat on Instagram.
The reality star ‘liked’ a post by a Private Sydney columnist, who shared a picture of a copy, alongside Craig Bennett’s recent autobiography.
‘I can’t believe trees were felled for this,’ he wrote, prompting Lisa to click ‘like’.

Last week, Lisa, who is now in a relationship with businessman James Laws, and has two boys with David, claimed she was left broke and homeless following her split with the former politician.
‘The rug was pulled out from under me last year,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.
‘I had to find money to fund legal bills, find a new home and all the other costs associated with living and I was really at my wits end.’
Lisa said she has since taken control of her money and will ‘never let a man’ be in charge of her finances again.
‘I’m embarrassed to say this, but until this year, despite funding the bills, I don’t believe I ever paid one,’ she told the paper.

David’s book is described as ‘an insight into his views on Australia; where we’re heading; where we’ve been and how we can better our lives and lives of others.’
His publishers add that ‘we learn the lessons life has taught him – many of which, may surprise’ and we ‘learn how the David of today evolved’.
