Jennifer Hudson Inks Deal for Weight Loss Memoir

Singer and Weight Watchers spokesperson Jennifer Hudson has landed a book deal with Penguin’s Dutton division to write a “inspirational weight loss memoir.”

Publisher Brian Tart announced the deal, which was negotiated by William Morris Endeavor agent Mel Berger.  Executive editor Carrie Thornton will edit the currently untitled book.

Here’s more from the release: “[It] will chronicle Hudson’s experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority, to dealing with talk of her weight as she competed on American Idol and won her first Oscar, to her eventual decision to get healthy after the birth of her son, and her success losing weight with the help of Weight Watchers. Now, 80 pounds lighter, 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 and much more.” (Image via)
