taraji p henson clarifies oscars ryan seacrest shade

Don’t get it twisted! Taraji P. Henson is TOTALLY standing by Ryan Seacrest.

Sunday’s Oscars coverage was particularly tough for Mr. Seacrest, as he had to navigate the red carpet following sexual misconduct allegations. In case you missed it, the American Idol host was accused of sexual harassment by former stylist Suzie Hardy.

Although another former E! staffer corroborated Hardy’s account, the network cleared Ryan’s name after an “extremely comprehensive and thorough” investigation. Nonetheless, many celebs avoided speaking to the 43-year-old at the Academy Awards. Not Taraji though!!!

However, her chat with Seacrest DID cause a bit of controversy — and here’s why… (more…)

For a powerful piece in The Hollywood Reporter, the blonde actress discussed how Harvey preyed on her industry-caused vulnerabilities and got specific about why she placed herself in such a dangerous position.

Empire Series Regular Charged With Domestic Battery

Empire Series Regular Charged With Domestic Battery

empire actor arrested domestic battery

Empire actor Morocco Omari is in some serious trouble.

The 41-year-old, who plays Terrence Howard‘s half brother on the Fox hit, was arrested in Chicago, IL on Wednesday for allegedly brutalizing a woman. How awful!

According to TMZ, the police responded to a 24-year-old woman’s 911 call who claimed she and Omari got into a fight which resulted in the industry vet pushing her to the ground several times.

It’s said the unnamed woman suffered from scratches on her neck and chest. Apparently, the alleged victim has since identified herself as Morocco’s girlfriend.

Reportedly the cops, who showed up around 2:30 p.m., saw the injuries firsthand and proceeded to book the Empire villain for misdemeanor domestic battery. Morocco plays the current antagonist on the celebrated drama — perhaps there’s a reason Mr. Omari is so good at playing a villain??

Anywho, we’ll be keeping our eyes on this case as more details are likely to trickle in, especially since Omari is slated to appear in court on Thursday. Stay tuned!

So, Nia Long & Taraji P. Henson’s Empire Feud All Started Because Of An Ill-Timed Period Joke??

taraji nia feud over period joke

This may shed some light as to why Nia Long was allegedly a nightmare on the Empire set.

As we previously reported, Miz Long clashed with Taraji P. Henson while filming the Fox drama as the Friday actress was supposedly nasty to the show’s hair, makeup, and wardrobe people. Not to mention, it’s said the 46-year-old was habitually late for filming and even threatened to file a suit against the show for not thanking her after her last scene.

However, Nia’s people have since denied these crazzzzzy accusations. In fact, according to TMZ, the industry vet’s problems with the show all stemmed from derogatory jokes made by Taraji and one of her fellow cast members. Oooh, go on!

Here’s More Evidence Nia Long Was A Pain In The Ass On The Empire Set

Here’s More Evidence Nia Long Was A Pain In The Ass On The Empire Set

Nia Long apparently was a nightmare on Empire set.

Ooh, the plot thickens!

We previously reported that Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson did not get along on the Empire set because of how Nia treated the hair, makeup, and wardrobe people. Well, now there’s even more evidence against Nia!

Related: Are Charmed‘s Shannen Doherty & Holly Marie Combs Feuding?

Multiple production sources tell TMZ that the hair, makeup, and wardrobe workers actually filed a formal complaint against the actress for how rude and entitled she was acting during her time on the show.

Apparently the 46-year-old would parade around like a total diva, being extremely disrespectful toward hair and makeup. She would sometimes decide she didn’t like her look at the last minute and then get angry at the employees. WTF!

Moreover, she was also “habitually late,” making Taraji and Terrence Howard wait up to 30 minutes for her arrival. Sometimes a stand-in would be called so that Taraji and Terrence could at least rehearse before Nia deigned to show up. So fucking rude! We can’t!

TMZ also reports that (more…)

Mariah Carey is a queen of the music industry, but the superstar was ruling the land of TV when she guest starred on Wednesday night’s episode of Empire!

Playing a unitard wearing Mimi-esque pop star named Kitty, the Elusive Enchantress stole almost every scene she was in, especially her duet with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett).

In the actual scene, Jamal was a bit nervous to belt one out next to the talented Kitty while recording their song Infamous. (We mean, we would be, too…)
