*Gabourey Sidibe is about to reveal some things that have been previously too “shady and impolite” to disclose.

The current “Empire” actress, whose breakout role in the film “Precious” earned her an Oscar nomination, is penning a memoir scheduled to come out in 2017, publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced Wednesday.

In a statement issued through her publisher, the 32-year-old said she had been writing since childhood and was anxious to share stories “too long, shady and impolite” for interviews.

Her other movies include “Tower Heist” and “Yelling to the Sky” and the TV series “American Horror Story” and “The Big C.”
