Kylie Jenner’s got that ambition, baby, and she knows where she wants to start conquering the acting biz first: ‘Empire!’ Like everyone and their mother, Kylie’s obsessed with Cookie Lyon and co., and dreams of appearing on the show. Maybe even with Tyga!
She’s got the reality show game on lock, so the natural next step for Kylie Jenner, 18, in the entertainment industry is to start acting. It would be a dream come true to appear on Empire, the amazing smash hit Fox show about an entertainment label dynasty, and she’ll do anything to get there, according to a HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVE source. How do you think Cookie would handle a visit from Kylie?
In the past few episodes, Andre has been doing everything he can to try and get back into Lucious’ good graces and Empire. After everything that has happened, it seems like Andre has figured out a way to do so and it involves finding Uncle Vernon’s body!
Eep. Andre and Lucious haven’t been on great terms ever since he found out Andre was a part of a team to overtake Empire. However, the eldest Lyon’s latest antics may have gotten him back inside his father’s inner circle and possibly at Empire!
Feud? What feud? In an attempt to shut down rumors, claiming they don’t get along, ‘Empire’ co-stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard engaged in an insane, but hilarious ‘argument’ and posted a video of it on Instagram. Watch it here!
Fox’s Empire may be pretty dramatic, but when the cameras stop rolling so does the drama. Taraji P. Henson actually took to her Instagram on Oct. 7 to squash rumors after a report claimed she and co-star Terrence Howard have been feuding with each other.
What a shady move on Lucious’ part! After Cookie refused to end her start up music label, Lucious decided to take matters into his own hands and steal one of her artists!
Don’t hate the player, hate the game! Lucious Lyon (Terrance Howard) is just doing his best to keep his Empire, well, the only Empire around. Even if that means he has to play dirty! Cookie was ready to debut Ménage a Trois, the girl group that Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) put together, when Lucious stole the leading lady right from underneath her!

Ta’Rhonda Jones and her character, Porsha, have stolen the show and our hearts on Empire. The show is bigger and better in season two, and Ta’Rhonda tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY all we can expect from Porsha, including a major betrayal, dream collaborations and maybe a little music from her!
50 Cent claims that he doesn’t hate gay people…even though he posted a photo slamming the show ‘Empire’ on his Instagram that included a homophobic slam. Has his ongoing feud with the Fox TV show finally gone too far?
50 Cent, 40, used to beef with other rappers, but now he’s going after TV shows — one in particular. The “P.I.M.P.” rapper has had an ongoing feud with the Fox hip hop hit Empire, but when he dissed the series this time around, he took a big shot at gay people too. 50 reposted an Instagram snap that claimed less people were watching Empire because of the “gay stuff”. Now, he’s backing off the comment and has been forced to clarify that he is not a homophobe.
Well, Lucious’ time in jail didn’t last very long. After being behind bars for three long months, the head of Empire is finally back and ready to reclaim his kingdom!
Lucious (Terrance Howard) is a free man, all thanks to his shady new lawyer Thirsty Rawlings (Andre Royo). While Lucious and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) celebrate his newly found freedom, Cookie (Tarji P. Henson) is busy starting her own Dynasty.
Don’t mess with 50 Cent! After Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson, called the rapper ‘thirsty’ on the Sept. 23 premiere of ‘Empire,’ 50 Cent took to Instagram to sound off on the diss! Click to WATCH!
50 Cent, 40, wasn’t exactly thrilled being called “thirsty” on the season premiere of Empire. We all know that the rapper’s got beef with the hit FOX show, so it’s kind of surprising the show even went there. 50 Cent has responded to Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) calling him “thirsty” in a new Instagram video, and he said he was shocked by her words. 50 says that he “hit that” when referring to Cookie — what exactly is he referring to?!
Honestly, I was really afraid that ‘Empire’ wasn’t going to be able to live up to the crazy, jaw-dropping antics of season one. However, the Sept. 23 season premiere proved me wrong. ‘Empire’ is having the farthest thing from a sophomore slump, and here’s why.
The first season of Empire was one of the best and most insane seasons of television ever. It became the hottest show on television, and many worried whether or not the show’s second season would be just as good. Well, after watching the show’s season premiere, I think Empire’s second season is going to be better than the first because of amazing guest stars, relationship developments and music that is hot, hot, hot!
Lyons, killers, new music, oh my! ‘Empire’ made its return to TV on Sept. 23 and it was well worth the wait. As Lucious Lyon sits in jail for a crime he did not commit, his wife Cookie is devising a plan to take back the Empire.
Since Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) is still in jail, it’ll be much easier for Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) take back Empire, right? While the matriarch of the Lyon family secretly set up an alliance between herself, Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray), Andre (Trai Byers), and Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey) to overtake the company, they still had to deal with Jamal (Jussie Smollett), who Lucious left in charge.
