NEW YORK (AP) - After a career of telling all, Ricki Lake is ready to write her story down.

The actress and talk show host has signed with Atria Books for a memoir scheduled to come out in spring 2012. Her new talk show is expected to launch later in the fall of 2012.

Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, says the book will be “a raw and emotional ride through the glum and the glamour.”

The book does not yet have a title.

The 42-year-old Lake has starred in such films as “Cry-Baby” with Johnny Depp and the original “Hairspray.” She also hosted her own talk show from 1993-2004.

She has spoken often about personal issues, including her weight problems and past sexual abuse.
