Gabourey Sidibe to Share Her 'Shady' Life Stories in New Memoir

Empire star's book will hit shelves in 2017.

Published June 4, 2015

Gabourey Sidibe has lived an amazing life and now she's ready to spill the details in a new book. Days after Shonda Rhimes announced that her memoir, Year of Yes, is in the works, the Empire actress joined the book (deal) club.

"I’ve been writing since I was a child and have always had so many stories to tell that are too long, shady and impolite to share in interviews," Sidibe said in a statement. "It brings me much joy to add Published Writer to my résumé of Actor and part-time Foot Model."


Sidibe's knack for being funny, biting and inspirational — sometimes all at the same time — gives us reason to believe this one has instant best-seller written all over it.
