Melissa Leo will write a memoir Melissa Leo, fresh off her televised F-bomb after winning at the Academy Awards, is coming to a book store near you.

Leo, who won the supporting actress Oscar, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for "The Fighter," will publish a memoir with Simon & Schuster, slated for release in 2013.

The publisher promised a memoir from the "Treme" actress covering "decades working in both television and film, as well as her childhood, and tumultuous relationship with actor John Heard," EW said.

Leo and Heard have a 24-year-old son, Jack. In 1996, the Oscar winner accused Heard of stalking the boy, herself and a new beau following their own split. Heard was formally charged in 1997.
