NEW YORK (AP) - Kelly Oxford is a blogger, Twitter star and inspiration for a new CBS sitcom. Now, she has a book deal.

It Books and HarperCollinsCanada, imprints of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Tuesday that they would publish her memoir in the summer of 2012. The currently untitled book will be a “a series of side-splitting essays.”

Oxford, who lives in Calgary, Alberta, is a wisecracking, stay-at-home mother of three with such famous fans as Jimmy Kimmel and Jessica Alba. Her life is the basis of “The Mother of All Something,” a planned CBS sitcom for which Alba will serve as executive producer.

CBS already airs the Twitter-inspired sitcom “$(hash)(asterisk)! My Dad Says.”
