Just a few years ago, Jennifer Aniston revealed she had NO plans anytime soon to write her memoir, but Matthew Perry’s unexpected death has made Jen rethink this. Jen is obviously devastated and still in shock over the loss of her Friends costar, but she’s found some comfort in knowing Matthew was able to share his story – including his struggles with addictions – with the world before passing. According to a friend, Jen has had a change of heart at writing her own story so she’s quietly working on a manuscript. From her challenging relationship with her mom, to her time on Friends, and of course her failed marriage to Brad Pitt, Jen is ready to tell her story. My source says that well-mannered Jen won’t throw anyone under the bus, and is already reaching out to get permission from anyone she plans to mention.
Seems like you couldn’t cruise the internet without seeing Jada Pinkett Smith EVERYWHERE, promoting her new book Worthy this week. And it IS full of bombshells about life with and without her husband Will. Although Will’s successful autobiography Will was just released in 2021, it was written BEFORE his infamous 2022 Oscar outburst where he punched Chris Rock. Looks like Jada’s success has inspired Will to write ANOTHER book – explaining the Oscar slap and his complicated life with Jada. He wants to clarify a lot of things with HIS side of the story about their separation etc. Will plans to announce it sometime next year because he wants Jada to have her moment. It’s the battle of the books…
Sandra Bullock is getting ready to spill the beans on her life story and it was her late partner, Bryan Randall, who encouraged her to do it. She’s lived through plenty of ups and downs, and among the highs are her adopted children and winning an Oscar. The lows include having her then spouse Jesse James cheat on her, and recently losing the love of her life Bryan to ALS. Through it all, Sandra has remained stoically tight lipped. After her divorce from Jesse, Sandra turned down millions to write her autobiography. It was Bryan who inspired her to tell her entire story and his, hoping to shed some light on ALS as well as inspire people with her perseverance. A publishing source reveals Sandra could get over $10 million for the book, and just in case we needed another reason to love her, she plans on donating the proceeds to ALS research.
There’s one group of people who might NOT be so thrilled that the strikes in Hollywood seem to be ending – those in charge of promoting Britney Spears’ upcoming memoir, The Woman In Me. Britney‘s tell-all tome is supposed to hit bookstands on October 24, but according to our insider, her publishers were NOT upset that the Hollywood strikes might have prevented her from doing publicity to promote the autobiography. Now that the strike seem to be ending, some connected to the project fear that Britney is in no mental condition to go on a grueling book tour. If she babbles incoherently, it’s going to be a hard sell to make any reader believe she wrote any of the book!
It’s no secret that out of the three kids the late Ivana Trump had with her ex-husband Donald, she was closest to her daughter, Ivanka. According to a family friend, Ivanka wants to honor her mom by publishing a coffee table book on her opulent life. From big hair to extravagant jewels and palatial mansions, Ivana had a lavish style all her own. Although Ivanka prefers a more to toned down aesthetic, she appreciated her mom’s love of glamour. She’s sorting through a lifetime of photos and is writing anecdotes to go along with the snapshots she chooses to include in her book.

STOP THE PRESSES – literally! We’re not sure HOW she managed to put this together, but Britney Spears’ much hyped autobiography, The Woman in Me, was SET to be released October 24. Of course, her sudden split from estranged husband Sam Asghari has thrown a major monkey wrench into that plan. According to a publishing insider, Britney devotes more than a few pages of her tell-all to singing Sam’s praises and those chapters will have to be rewritten to reflect the current state of their marriage. Our insider who has SEEN the manuscript reveals that the lovey-dovey parts about Sam read like fiction now, so those chapters of the book are being updated -this might delay the announced October release date.
Barbra Streisand’s memoir (around a thousand pages!) is due to be released in November- just in time for Christmas gifts. Naturally her life story will include her Hollywood romances and we can’t wait to read the chapter about Ryan O’Neal. Barbra and Ryan costarred in two comedies- What’s Up Doc and The Main Event. Apparently Barbra had a huge crush on Ryan after their first movie and I saw them together one night at The Candy Store in Beverly Hills. She was ALL OVER him! Barbra was giggling and nuzzling Ryan and sitting on his lap half the time. She did not let him out of her sight or her grip. Apparently they dated for awhile, but then Ryan met Farrah Fawcett (who was married to Lee Majors at the time) and THEY hooked up. I’m curious to read Streisand’s book to see what she says about Ryan…
Lori Loughlin is getting ready to tell HER side of the story. It’s been around three years since her troubles with the college admission bribery scandal and resulting two month prison term. Lori is now rebuilding her career and working on her autobiography. A publishing insider says that Lori’s tell-all will cover many aspects of her private life – including her rarely discussed first marriage, secrets from her time on Full House, and of course her legal troubles and jail time. Now that she’s paid her dues and put the scandal behind her, Lori is eager to get back into acting, and feels writing a book will hopefully provide a boost to her career.
Congressional conman George Santos has a backup plan if his time as a NY Congressman comes to an abrupt end. The disgraced politician could be ousted from Congress for multiple reasons -including lying about almost everything on his resume, possible campaign fraud, and even potential criminal charges in Brazil. If he does get booted, the rumored former drag queen plans to cash out with a tell-all book ironically titled, And Nothing But The Truth, which he has been quietly pre-shopping around to publishers. Although he has zero credibility, a publishing house insider explains that a book could be a best seller if he comes clean on everything. He’s lied about so much and fooled so many of his constituents that if he’s capable of confessing the truth, it could sell well. For now though, George has insisted he’s staying in Congress, so any book deal hinges on him getting expelled.
Here’s a story you won’t read in Prince Harry’s just released bestseller autobiography, Spare – he’s beefed up security ever since he revealed in the book that he killed 25 Taliban insurgents while serving two stints in Afghanistan for the British military! Harry explained the killings in detail and he now fears that he overshared, and has become a target for revenge. The Taliban and Islamic fundamentalists might not take this info lightly. An insider says Harry has quietly beefed up his already impressive security presence around his Montecito estate, as well as his personal bodyguards when traveling. Although not confirmed, one resident of the area reveals that Harry may have received some threats and was informed by either US or British intelligence, which would explain the sudden added guards.
