Brittany Murphy's Mom ... Booked

11/10/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brittany Murphy would have been 33-years-old today -- and to honor her memory, the actress' mother has decided to write a book on her life ... TMZ has learned.

In a statement through her rep, Sharon Murphy tells us, "This book will be my way of celebrating and honoring her extraordinary life and career."

Sharon insists the biography will be an "accurate account about my daughter, her life, loves, and career."

Murphy claims a portion of her profits from the book will be donated to charity. So far, no release date has been set.

Yeah, she is so sad, but yet found a way to cash-in on her daughter even after she's dead. First, take the money her daughter earns, then scam it all away by writing a book.

Please stop hyphenating that way -- it's not "33-years-old"; it's "33 years old." You'd hyphenate it only if you use it this way: "Sharon Murphy, mother of the 33-year-old actress," or "Brittany Murphy, who would have been 33 years old today, will be memorialized in print by her 55-year-old [or whatever] moher."

Oh my god. Just when I think that woman can't possibly get any worse. Why is she profiting off her daughter's death? Lord, she had to get more money out of her somehow, didn't she? Ugggh-she makes me sick.

If you're going to mouth off about writing style, technique, and/or errors, then maybe you should learn how to spell-check before you bother to click on the "Add Comment" button.

In addition, maybe (though highly recommended is more proper) you should learn how to correctly type a dash (hypen). A hypen is a sing dash (-) and not two (--).

Also, maybe you should learn how to be properly consistent with punctuating inside versus outside the quotation marks. Specifically, either put all punctuation before the closing quotation mark or after. Learn how to not mix-and-match.

So damn stupid!

Yeah, being alone is the result when you kill everyone around you. It's a math thing.

in the same bed as her son in law. Money is an evil thing.

Actually, TD, the colon and semicolon always go outside the closing quotation mark (even when periods or commas fall inside the closing quotation mark). She was also correct in using two hyphens there since she was going for an em dash.
