Creator of Scandal and Single mom Shonda Rhimes to write her memoir!

Move over Olivia Pope, it’s time for Shonda Rhimes to shine!
According to reports, the mastermind behind shows like “Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice has inked a publishing deal with Simon & Schuster to write a memoir.
Described as “part memoir, part inspiration, part prescription,” the book will focus on Shonda’s “personal decision to build a family well before her Hollywood career began to skyrocket, and to navigate the challenges of balancing parenthood and professional success.”

As a single mother to three daughters, the 43-year-old said she’s made a lot of mistakes, but she hopes her story will help her kids in the long run.
“Simon and Schuster is crazy for giving me a book deal as I am clearly in no position to be handing out wisdom,” Shonda joked. “But I have made a lot of mistakes as a single mother and as a working mother and as a sleepless mother and as a dating mother. And I did all of it while running a bunch of TV shows. So I’m going to write about that and hope my kids don’t use it against me in therapy later.”
