Susan Sarandon is an award-winning actress and bona fide movie star!
But maybe she's not good at everything? At least that's what book publishers seem to think. Susan's children's book has been rejected!
Maybe she shouldn't have called it Rocky Horror Picture Book?
Srsly though, why didn't Sue's muse come through for her?

Can you blame them?
An NBC news reporter is trying to get an interview with Casey Anthony but she's reportedly only agreed if she can get a book deal.
However, book publishers want NOTHING to do with her and are refusing to give a cent of their money to give her a deal.
Three of the biggest book publishers have come right out and refused, saying there's absolutely no way they would agree to sign her.
Simon and Schuster says:

Amidst the trend of lots and lots
and lots of celebs publishing tell-alls, it looks like there's one who's just not innerested!
According to Ebony Magazine, Vanessa Williams has turned down six-hundred-thousand-dollars to add her tell-all to the bunch!
Here's what she had to say about turning the offer down:
"I don't want to rehash the past …. I want to talk about what makes me, and why I'm a survivor. And the publishers DIDN'T want that. They wanted to know about my ex-husbands. But I'm NOT going to throw my kids' dads under the bus"
We def see where she's coming from! At least she knows that in the future if ever she needs the $$$, she's got a story that people want to hear!
If U were in Vanessa's shoes, would U "throw your kids' dads under the bus" for 600K?

Uh oh, X Factor! Looks like your gagging may not have been as effective as you hoped!
Eliminated X Factor contestant Wagner Carrilho has reportedly been offered as much as £1 million to write a tell-all about what goes on behind the scenes at the ITV show.
Here's what a publisher had to say about the demand for Wagner's story:
"There is a lot of interest in exactly what Wagner would say. Especially as he’s been effectively gagged from talking about the show this week."
Looks like that gagging SERIOUSLY backfired! Here's more:
“What does he know that’s making people so nervous? He lived and breathed that show for months. He’s bound to know a lot about the other contestants."
“And he spent a lot of time with people like Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell, so who knows what else he could reveal?”
We are SO curious to hear more! We'll be very excited when he signs a deal with one of these publishers!
Why do U think X Factor is so fearful of Wagner Carrilho? What do U think he's going to say?

Congratulations on the successful book, Obama! Maybe now you'll actually amount to something……
Barack Obama's children's book "Of Thee I Sing" has already made the top 25 lists on both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, even though it won't even be released for a full two months!
Obama wrote the book before he became President, and publishers have said that the proceeds will be donated to a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled soldiers.
What's next for Obama after his children's book? Well, aside from continuing to run the U.S., he has mentioned plans to write a nonfiction book after he leaves office. We'll expect large numbers from such a book, given the fact that his previous two works of nonfiction have sold millions of copies.
What's your secret to success, Barack? Is it mostly because you're the President of the United States of America?
We wish you the best with your children's book, bb! Glad to hear the proceeds will go to children in need.
