Despite calling it quits from his model girlfriend Selita Ebanks, former BET host and hottie, Terrence Jenkins, has signed his first book deal with HarperCollins Publishers that will be publishing his "The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom," memoir about his trails and tribulations growing up in Queens, New York.
Jenkins had this to say:
“During the process of playing the mama’s boy in Think Like a Man, I took an in-depth look at my own mother and her extraordinary journey of raising me while still a teenager herself,” Terrence explained during Tuesday night’s broadcast of E! News.
Because of the decisions she made and her wisdom, I was able to not only stay off the streets and stay out of jail, but I was able to go on to college and be successful in my career.”
Carrie Thornton, "the executive editor at H.C.P," also added:
"The first time I met Terrence, I found him to be charming, but also very humble. He shared with me stories of his childhood, and also his deep admiration for his mother. I knew we had found the Kernel of a wonderful book from him. Terrence's star is getting brighter and brighter every day, and we're so happy to have the chance to publish him.The 30 year-old E! News reporter is set to release his memoir late Fall.
