Patricia Heaton, the costar of ”Everybody Loves Raymond,” has reached a deal with Villard, following a seven-house auction, to publish a collection of autobiographical essays called ”Motherhood and Hollywood.” Villard editorial director Bruce Tracy paid close to seven figures for the book, characterized as ”Erma Bombeck meets Dennis Miller.” ”It’s grounded in middle American reality,” Tracy says, ”and yet she’s not afraid to throw a few darts.” ”Motherhood” will be out next fall.
