According to the Hollywood Reporter, actress and director Penny Marshall is working on bringing her inspiring life story to the masses.
"I have had many lives (not in the Shirley MacLaine sense) and you will hear about them all ... Just don't expect any recipes ... I don't cook," the 68-year-old Hollywood veteran says of her upcoming memoir.
Marshall says the book will cover her childhood, her relationship with brother Garry Marshall (the producer), moving to Hollywood as a single mom, her time on “Laverne & Shirley,” becoming a director and her 2009 battle with cancer.
The star is also expected to reveal details on her brief marriage to Rob Reiner and her relationships with Art Garfunkel and John Belushi.
The book is described as a "candid, inspiring, and hilarious account of Penny’s ascension from her humble roots in the Bronx to one of the most liked and respected figures in the entertainment business."
“I can't say I'm excited about the Yankees losing, or there not being a basketball season yet, but I am excited about writing this book,” Marshall said in a statement.
Amazon Publishing is releasing “My Mother Is Nuts” next fall.
