Portia de Rossi to Write Memoir About Her Eating Disorder

Portia de Rossi is putting it all down on paper.

The actress, who married Ellen DeGeneres in August 2008, has just signed a deal with Atria Books to publish a book about suffering from an eating disorder while in the Hollywood spotlight. Rossi, who is most well-known for her roles on Ally McBeal and Arrested Development, battled bulimia and anorexia for years.

Rossi, 37, will also share with readers what it was like to come out as a lesbian and the love she found with DeGeneres.

"It's so important to live an honest, open life," she told People last year, "And I didn't really realize that until I started doing it."

Rossi's book is scheduled to hit shelves this fall.
