Empire is back on Fox tonight at 9p and it hits out of the park.
The episode starts out with Lucious (Terrence Howard) performing his new song to a crowd. Cookie (Taraji P Henson) gets back at him by bringing his mom Leah (Leslie Uggams), that everyone thought was dead, out to introduce her to everyone. Lucious decides to get revenge on his ex-wife by sabotaging her boyfriend’s (Taye Diggs) political career. Finally, they have one final blow out and it involves a bat. Cookie will come out swinging, but who has the final word when Lucious and her get to first base?
Then there is Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and he is in rehab. While he is in there, he meets Tory Ash (Rumer Willis). She is a singer/songwriter that has her own issues. Even though they are not supposed to work on their music while they are there, they find a way to do it. They do this by escaping the facility and Lyon’s are worried that Jamal is back on drugs? Is he?
Did I mention that Cookie has a bat? That is why you are going to tune in and I promise you will not be disappointed!
Before Gabourey Sidibe landed the role of Precious, men were calling her Precious for another reason. She told People she spent three years working as a Sex Phone Operator. In fact, she bragged about her work to the mag, “I was actually pretty good at it.”
In fact, she considered it her acting school, but wouldn’t admit that during an audition. She explained why she didn’t, “I knew that when people were asking me, ‘So have you had any acting training?’ my acting school was on the phone, pretending to be some super-young 21-year-old college girl named Melody. I know that was my acting!”
Her voice is perfect for phone sex. I can totally see men getting turned on by it. For those of you who call sex lines, do you think you ever spoke to her?
I don’t know about you, but I can’t remember the last time I saw Demi Moore act. Well, she is coming back and she is doing it big.
GI Jane is joining Empire in a recurring role during the season 3 finale. According to the press release, she will be “playing a take-charge nurse with a mysterious past, who will become ever more treacherously entangled with the Lyon family in Season Four.”
Which asks so many questions? Like who is she going to be a nurse for? What is her past? What troubles will she cause for the Lyons? Is it more desperate that she took the role on the Fox Nighttime Soap or the fact that show asked her to do it? And that is before we even saw her in the part. Which I can’t wait for because you know it is going to be hot! Hotter than One Crazy Summer!
Lee Daniels shared this video that Jussie Smollett made of the cast members and crew from Empire having some fun between takes and I think that deserves its own show. On cable preferably so they can curse up a storm!
Aren’t they even wackier than the characters?
Tonight at 9p, Fox debuts its new drama Star and it is going to be a star.
Star (Jude Demorest) is an 18 year foster girl who ages out of the system. She finds her sister Simone (Brittany O’Grady) and a friend Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) she has been talking to online and drives to Atlanta to her Godmother’s (Queen Latifah) so that they can be a huge singing group.
Her Godmother was in a singing group their mother and has wanted to take them in. Now she finally has her chance. A lot has changed since she saw them last. She has found Gd and changed her ways.
Star only wants to be a star and she will do anything to be one. She has the talent, now all she needs is the connections. Something that comes very quickly to her, but do these people have her best interest at heart?
If you are a fan of Lee Daniels’ movies, then Star is something you are going to love. It has that big screen feel on the small screen. It is like watching a movie every week, the quality is that good.
