Terrence Jenkins is on his way to becoming a certified author. The actor and E! News co-anchor has signed a book deal with HarperCollins It Books to pen The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom, which will be published in September. The "ode to all mothers out there" is a collection of childhood stories, lessons and advice that his mother has imparted on the 30-year-old.

"During the process of playing the mama's boy in Think Like a Man, I took an in-depth look at my own mother and her extraordinary journey of raising me while still a teenager herself," Jenkins said. "I know that many of the successful moments in my life, personally and professionally, have been in part because of the lessons that she taught me, and I am proud to share her words of wisdom to inspire others."

"Because of the decisions she made and her wisdom," he continued, "I was able to not only stay off the streets and stay out of jail, but I was able to go on to college and be successful in my career."
