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.

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)
