Debbie Reynolds Lands Book Deal for Tell-All

Movie star Debbie Reynolds has inked a deal to publish a tell-all memoir with HarperCollins. Publication is set for 2013.

Unsinkable will be her second book with the publisher, following 1988′s Debbie: My Life. Trident Media Group CEO Dan Strone negotiated the deal with senior vice president Lynn Grady. Executive editor Jennifer Brehl will edit.

Here’s more from the release: “At the end of her 1988 autobiography, Debbie: My Life (Morrow), Debbie Reynolds talks about finally finding love with her third husband, calling him ‘brave, loyal and loving.’ Her marriage seemed like a great success until she discovered that her husband had his mistress stashed at the Stardust just down the street from Debbie’s own newly opened Las Vegas hotel. She then learned that he’d embezzled all the proceeds from her business, in addition to many other betrayals. When she confronted him, she barely escaped with her life. For the third time, Debbie would suffer a divorce that left her emotionally and financially bankrupt.” (image via)
