Wendy Osefo To Release Memoir Titled ‘TEARS OF MY MOTHER: The Legacy Of My Nigerian Upbringing’ In May 2022!

Dr. Wendy Osefo has announced that she will be releasing a memoir, titled TEARS OF MY MOTHER: The Legacy of my Nigerian Upbringing, set to hit shelves in May 2022, according to PEOPLE.

"Motherhood is a layered concept and being able to examine it through this book from my lens of an immigrant and mother of three has opened my eyes to the many ways we as mothers carry the weight of our past into not only our future but that of our children," the Real Housewives of Potomac star told PEOPLE.  

The book, published by Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books, will follow Osefo's emotionally intense and complicated relationship with her mother Susan Okuzu and how her Nigerian upbringing affected her life and her role as a mother. 

"I hope readers will take from this book that it is never too late to make a change in your life and that of your own children," she continued. "We must prepare future generations not for our world, but the world they will live in when we are no longer here."

Wendy was born in Nigeria and raised in the United States by Okuzu, who "arrived in the States with a single suitcase and the fierce determination to make a better life for herself, a resolution that she would later pass on to her children," the book release said. 

After completing her Bachelor's degree and two Master's, Osefo went on to become the first Black woman to obtain a doctorate in Public Affairs-Community Development from Rutgers University (Camden). 

She is now a mother of three, a professor at John Hopkins University, and a regular contributor on various cable news channels. In 2020, she joined Bravo's RHOP, becoming the first PhD-holder to be a cast member on the Real Housewives franchise. 

The mother-of-three shared the exciting news about her upcoming memoir via her Instagram page. She captioned the post, "Thank you @people for the feature. I’m so excited to announce my upcoming book Tears Of My Mother. Being a part of the @simonandschuster @gallerybooks family is a dream come true!
