Heche to Pen Life Story
Out of the closet actress Anne Heche has just signed a deal to release her memoir, according to Mr.Showbiz.com.
Heche, 31, has signed with Simon & Schuster offshoot Scribner to offer up the story of her tragic youth and her rise to stardom, said Mr.Showbiz, quoting Variety magazine.
Meanwhile, Inside.com reports that the actress is expected to rake in six figures for her autobiography.
So what’s to expect?, well a lot.
The golden-haired Heche suffered the loss of her father to AIDS at age 14, and her brother died in a car crash when she was 17. She supported her mother and two sisters by singing in dinner theaters and broke into acting by playing twins on the now-defunct soap opera Another World.
Heche, who previously dated comedian Steve Martin, became involved with DeGeneres in 1997. A media feeding frenzy ensued, and Heche claimed that she began losing acting roles because of industry prejudice toward her personal life with Ellen.
In August, the couple issued a joint statement to the New York Daily News that read, “Unfortunately, we have decided to end our relationship. It is an amicable parting, and we greatly value the three and a half years we have spent together.”
Heche, 31, and DeGeneres, 42, added that they hoped the public would respect their privacy during the difficult separation – Albawaba.com.
