Nia Long & Taraji P. Henson’s Feud!!



The beautiful actress Nia Long appeared on the premiere episode of Empire which aired Wednesday night on Fox. When learning that she would be appearing on the show, I really felt that was a great look for her, she is one of my favorite actresses. However, rumors have been running rampant stating that Nia and Taraji are at war on the set of Empire.

I didn’t want to believe that two beautiful black and phenomenal actresses would be at each others throat on the set of Empire. Rumors like these always spread when a show is returning and when there are two strong black beautiful actresses on set. This is what people want to see, they love to watch powerful black women fight instead of working together. I’m still having a hard time believing these rumors are true but several blog sites are indicating the rumors are true.

Allegedly Nia wanted to be the star of Empire, I find that hard to believe, this is Taraji’s show and she is the star of the show. How could Nia even believe that she could be a star of a show where that star is already Taraji? Taraji is definitely the star and so far that is not changing anytime soon.

Allegedly the producers of the show were trying to find ways to separate the two by shooting their joint scenes separately. If it was really that horrible with Nia where they needed to shoot separate scenes, maybe they should have replaced her. There are so many other black actresses that could play her role.

A reliable source close to the show reports that Nia may not be on the show anymore after her reprehensible behavior. Several sources are also stating that Nia is threatening to sue Empire over a horrible goodbye from the show as her role ended. Nia was allegedly rude and nasty to Empire’s glam squad and she was upset about how her hair was styled and her make-up. Taraji witnessed her behavior and how nasty she was to the glam squad and that definitely rubbed her the wrong way.

Word on the street, Nia and Taraji allegedly argued in front of the crew and the entire cast. I really hope Taraji didn’t allow Nia to get under her skin, it appears that Nia could be upset that she isn’t apart of an amazing show and watching Taraji continue to amaze us with her role as Cookie Lyon. Jealousy and envy is definitely not a good look for Nia and with this behavior on the set of Empire, she may have a hard time securing another role on television or movies.

That diva attitude is a wrap, as I stated before, there are many black beautiful and amazing actresses that can replace her at a given moment. Nia doesn’t strike me as the type who would pull that diva behavior so I’m still on the fence. I love Taraji and if you don’t come for her, she won’t come for you.

Nia’s rep, claims the feud rumors are not true, but something about these rumors have to be true. Her rep continues to state that throughout her career, Nia has been a true professional treating all members of productions and staff with respect. Her rep never mentioned whether the rumors about Nia suing the show are true? Something ain’t right with this picture. We need to work together as black women and support each other in an industry that is hard to remain in.

I hope all works out and I pray that two of my favorite actresses weren’t truly beefing among each other on the show. Empire is a great drama series and we don’t want to lose Taraji as Cookie Lyons.

Queen Sugar Finale



Queen Sugar Finale aired and it left us with a lot of questions and that’s the way a show should end. One of the best drama series on tv right now, hate the season ended but it gives us a reason to get ready for next season!!

Nova is sitting with her reporter friend at the farmhouse while her friend interviews one of the farmers that works at the farm. Darla shows up; she wants to get some of her things from inside the house, but Nova isn’t having it, she already doesn’t trust Darla, and can’t understand why she never told anyone the truth about Blue, and why she would tell now? Darla held on to this secret for 7 years. Darla tries to explains her lies, she chose what she thought was best for Blue, but Nova tells her; she chose lies, not what was best.

Charley is so mad at the Landry’s, they are affecting her mill and her money, she confronts Jacob Boudreaux, who admits he has been worried about Charley’s next game plan. He admits to spreading rumors about her farm. He wants Charley, he is intrigued by her, he begins to flirt with her and she is just playing a game.

Another farmer lets Ralph Angel know they can’t work with the Queen Sugar mill anymore; they’re nervous about all the rumors. At the mill, Charley is on the phone trying to save her mill but the owners are worried about the rumors and the machinery at the mill isn’t working properly, but those are lies coming from the Landry’s.

Hollywood receives a phone call from the lawyer from the rig lawsuit, who tells him that the company settled for triple the amount they originally thought they would. Hollywood screams to V that they are now rich. Hollywood is the type of person who will share his money with the world.

Ralph Angel confronts Darla about her lies and she tells him she couldn’t remember who she slept with at that time and she did what she thought was best for Blue. Ralph Angel tells Darla they are over, he can’t trust her at all but he will always be Blue’s father. He then picks Blue up from Aunt V, Blue was sleep but he woke up once he saw his face and asked his pop where has he been? Ralph Angel explained to him it was harvest time and he told Blue how he got his name.

I love the relationship Ralph Angel and Blue have, he loves his pop, to take him away would break Ralph Angel’s heart and tear Blue up.

Empire Recap



Empire has returned and I am so happy, this episode didn’t disappoint but the last few were a disappointment. So how does Lucious go from not remembering his past and not walking to walking and remembering more of his past every day? I am so confused but this episode was definitely entertaining.

Hakeem and Anika are in family court fighting each other for full custody of baby Bella. I must say, Hakeem stepped up to the plate to be the best father he could be and now he’s fighting Anika for his daughter. The morning of the hearing, of course Hakeem has his family in court with him as well as Tiana.

The courtroom is full of vultures, who will do whatever it takes to get the next story to sell, they have cameras and picket signs in the court room. This female judge wasn’t playing with anybody and she seems like a tough judge. I didn’t know Angelo was an attorney, I thought his cousin was the attorney but I guess not because he is Anika’s attorney and everyone knows that he is only trying to get back at Cookie for humiliating him. Angelo gives his opening argument, the judge sends best wishes to his mother.

Angelo goes all the way in on the Lyons and praises Anika when he doesn’t even know her. Does the judge know that Anika killed her future son in laws baby by pushing her off the balcony? Anika is very sneaky, she always has a trick bag with her and this makes no difference. While Angelo praises Anika, he doesn’t praise Hakeem, he talked about his drug and sex parties. Angelo calls The Lyons criminals and thugs, he says they are not in a position to have baby Bella with them at all. Anika did do time, her skeletons came out in court and she was still able to get full custody of her daughter.

Hakeem is definitely worried about his baby, Angelo calls Cookie to the stand, and prison comes up. Cookie is smart, her street smartness gives her game, she knew how to handle herself in court. She talks about Hakeem and how he’s a wonderful father to his daughter, the kind of parent she wanted to be but couldn’t. Angelo brings up the fight between Anika and Cookie, calling Cookie violent but never saying anything bad about Anika. At one point in her life Anika was going to kill herself and she asked Cookie to take care of Bella. All of a sudden whack a$$ Angelo brings up that Cookie had thugs beat him up.

Lucious is back, the real Lucious but I’m still not convinced that he ever lost his memory, I believe he was just playing his part. Lucious decides he wants to testify and he gets that chance, when Angelo asks Lucious about his past as “the scariest man in music,” Lucious claims he can’t remember due to his memory loss. Lucious loves Bella and all the memories she’s given him, because of Bella, he wants to try and change his ways for the best!

Hakeem, decides to fire his lawyer and speak for himself, he really didn’t have a legitimate reason as to why he fired him but he did and that was that. He gets Anika on the stand asking personal questions about Bella. Then Hakeem reminds her that his door was always open; he wanted her to get to know Bella, but she had to file this custody suit on him.

Mrs. DuBois has returned just in time to throw Hakeem under the bus, she gets on the stand and talks about how she finds Hakeem a very pleasant young man, which she knows because he’s spent every Tuesday afternoon with her for the past five months. The look on Cookie’s face was priceless. Mrs. Dubois also videotaped their meetings, he betrayed his family when he says terrible, damning things about every single member of his family: Jamal has his pills, Andre has his illness, he also says Andre’s baby dying was “probably for the best”, Hakeem wishes Cookie was still in jail, and Lucious is a monster.

Of course the judge rules and gives Anika full custody of baby Bella. Hakeem is devastated, the entire Lyon family is hurting for Hakeem and Bella.
