As if what she's been doing for the length of her career in entertainment industry has yet enough, Oprah Winfrey is giving hand at a new job. The talk show queen has signed a deal with the publisher Simon & Schuster to write a book about weight control which reportedly is due for a January release.
The deal, announced at the annual Book Expo America in Washington, is claimed to be the biggest signed for a non-fiction work, though the amount was not disclosed. One thing for sure Oprah is assumed to exceed the $12 million Bill Clinton received for his 2004 memoir, "My Life."
More on the book, it will be co-written with Winfrey's personal fitness trainer, Bob Greene, who frequently appears on her TV program and has signed a deal with McDonald's to promote its healthy meal campaign.
