E! News reports that Jennifer Hudson has signed a deal to publish a memoir about her dramatic weight loss.
The as-yet untitled book is expected to be released by Dutton next January.The memoir will detail Hudson’s “experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority, ” as well as talk of her weight while competing on American Idol, according to statement from Dutton.
“Hudson wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun, ” the statement also reads.
Hudson, a celebrity spokesperson for Weight Watchers, went from a size 16 to a size 6. She told Oprah in February that she lost 80 lbs.
“It’s like a brand-new me, ” Hudson told Oprah. “Sometimes I don’t even recognize myself.”
The New York Post had reported that Jennifer was having trouble selling her 1 million dollar book proposal because she refused to write about the 2008 murders of her mother, brother and nephew in Chicago.
Looks like she found a taker.
