Gabrielle Union Just Dropped Her Latest Book & Here’s Where to Get Your Copy
“During the process of writing We’re Going to Need More Wine, there were many many chapters that I had written, but I didn’t include in the book because I wasn’t ready,” the Bring It On star said in the clip. “In this book, we cover my journey to motherhood, we cover race, we cover equality. Adult dancers—my fave, Janet Jackson. It gives you so many insights and avenues to my soul.”
And we weren’t the only ones excited about the news. Fans and fellow celebs shared their congratulations in the comments section of the post. Mindy Kaling praised her pal, writing, “You did the thing!! I love this book. It’s so hard to share how we truly feel and you did it! Congrats!” Actress Niecy Nash added, “No lies told!!! A must-read.”
