Jennifer Hudson to get $1M for weight loss memoir

Jennifer HudsonOscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, 29, has been offered $1 million from Penguin Group’s Dutton Publishing for her weight loss memoir. Jennifer has dropped approximately 80 pounds during the past year while on the Weight Watchers plan. The memoir, which Jennifer has not yet written, will reportedly be about her experience “growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority,” according to a Dutton press release. “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.” During an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, Hudson told the former host: “It’s like a brand-new me. Sometimes I don’t even recognize myself.” The book is expected to be released in January 2012.

    At the very least, she’ll get a fat check.
