Ashley Judd writing new memoir about sexual assaults

Hollywood actress Ashley Judd is all set to write a new memoir about her sexual assaults.

The 49-year-old actress is ready to frankly address the sexual misconduct allegations she made against the studio mogul Harvey Weinstein in a new book, according to Page Six.

Her first memoir, "All That Is Bitter & Sweet", about her dysfunctional Kentucky childhood with mother Naomi and sister Wynonna, was a best-seller.

The new manuscript has sparked a bidding war, and insiders say she could get an advance of more than USD 1 million.

At Audrey Gruss' Hope for Depression Research Foundation luncheon earlier this month, Judd said, "I am in recovery from depression. About that I have no shame. I am a living example of why there is hope."

It should be noted that Ashley had previously claimed that Weinstein sexually harassed her in his Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel room two decades ago.

Ashley admitted part of her felt ''shame'' for making such a deal with the producer, but understands she did whatever she could to get out of the situation, which she knows is ''good enough''.
