American Actress and Red Table host Jada Pinkett-Smith is set to release a “no holds barred” memoir highlighting ‘lessons learned’ and marriage to Will Smith.

People announced that the currently untitled memoir, published with Dey Street Books, a HarperCollins will be released in fall 2023.

Jada Pinkett Smith chronicles lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting journey — a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power,” read a press release reported by People.

The announcement further detailed that the Emmy Award-winning Pinkett Smith will recount in the book her “unconventional upbringing in Baltimore,” her friendship with late rapper Tupac Shakur, her love story with Smith and her experiences with motherhood.

“In crisis at age 40, Jada recounts the excruciating choices she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way,” the publisher said.

The book description adds, “At the heart of this powerful book are two unexpected love stories, one being Jada’s complicated marriage to Will Smith, the other being the one with herself.”

Smith, 51, was caught amid controversy at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.

Comedian Chris Rock made an infamous joke about her hair-loss disorder alopecia areata. He likened her shaved head to Demi Moore’s look in “G.I. Jane”.

Reacting to the joke, her husband, Will Smith took to the stage and stunned the stage by slapping Rock.
