Jennifer Hudson Can’t Get A Weight Loss Book Deal

Jennifer Hudson has come a long way since appearing as a contestant on American Idol. She has appeared in Dreamgirls, for which she won an Oscar and has lost a lot of weight. Girlfriend looks good!

Still, she isn’t able to secure a book deal where she would be able to chronicle her weight loss success. What?!? I’d totally read that. Come on, she’s the national spokeswoman for the amount of weight she’s lost and how good she looks.

She famously dropped more than 80 pounds as a rep for Weight Watchers, but she can’t land a book deal for seven figures. You would think someone would want to capitalize on her excellent image….right?

Apparently, she’s demanding a cool million for her weight loss memoirs, but publishers are holding out for the story of her slain family. In October 2008, her mother, brother and nephew were horrifically murdered by her brother-in-law, allegedly.

A source said, “It was disappointing. Her book about her diet is really appealing and wonderful. But if you spend a lot of money on the book deal, you want it to sell. With no talk of her family, we didn’t think it was worth it.”

Jennifer revealed that people are talking about her weight loss, saying, “Oh goodness, yes, people are gossiping.”

She went on to reveal, “But trust me, I’m content right here. I don’t believe in the so-skinny look. There’s already so many more doors open for me. Why would I? My diet started four days after I had my baby. I didn’t expect to get as far as I have. It’s like, wow, this is a whole new world. People treat you completely differently. You get more attention. You get more clothes. You get on more magazine covers. You get more opportunities; you name it.”

Would you read a book by Jennifer on the topic of weight loss? Sound off in the comments!
